NOT only did Highlanders walk away with bragging rights after beating old foes Dynamos, but Bosso players made rich pickings of US$1  500 each as bonuses for the Uhuru Cup victory.

The club's principal sponsor Sakunda Holdings poured in US$69 300 as incentives for the match that lived up to its billing.

Highlanders won the tightly contested game 1-0, courtesy of a 55th minute strike by forward Stanley Ngala.

The Independence Cup had all the facets of a blockbuster, with tension and skill, and both sides showing tactical astuteness as the teams exhibited the best of Zimbabwean football before a capacity crowd.

There's no doubt that incentives played a big part in bringing the best out of the players who exhibited their A-game.

The 20 Highlanders players that made yesterday's squad shared US$30 000, with coach Mandla Mpofu getting US$2 250 for beating Dynamos.

The four assistant coaches shared US$6 000 while the team manager and team doctor each got US$1 500. The two medics shared US$2  250.

The man-of-the-match chosen by the winning technical team took home US$2 250.

Sakunda reviewed the prize money to be shared by Dynamos to US$18 300 from US$9 000, which it had set aside before the final.

This means each member of the 30-team DeMbare squad will get US$610.

Meanwhile, for lifting the Uhuru Cup, Highlanders earned themselves $6 million, while Dynamos went home with $4,5 million.
