Life in the Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League

The platinum miners had a fairy tale run during their maiden season in the premier league when they came second after having led the log standings for the better part of the season. Although the club failed to clinch the title in their debut season, the club has grown immensely such that it is almost impossible for any team to walk away with a point at Mandava Stadium.
