Council renovate Dulivhadzimu Stadium in Beitbridge

The Beitbridge Town Council is making frantic efforts to get Dulivhadzimu Stadium ready for the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League.

Debutantes Border Strikers will use the stadium for their home matches.

Pictures posted by the town council online show that much work has been covered as planting of grass where there were patches on the pitch and putting up new structures at the terraces.

Underhill and Tripple B had to play some of their home big matches in Masvingo and Zvishavane because Dulivhadzimu could not meet PSL standards.

Border Strikers was formed in 1982 as a social soccer team by a group of likeminded people who were employees of the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority, the Vehicle Inspection Depot, Department of Immigration and clearing agents. The club eventually became a community team when most of the founding members were transferred from Beitbridge to other areas.

In 2002 Border Strikers were promoted into Division One where they plied their trade until they were unceremoniously expelled in 2012 for failing to fulfil fixtures due to financial challenges.

The club was revived last year by a group of businessmen based in the border town.

Border Strikers secured the Zifa Central Region Division One title in September when they were automatically awarded three points after their opponents Sable Chemicals failed to travel to Beitbridge.
