Caps United clinch league championship

CAPS United edged Chapungu 1-0 at Ascot Stadium on Saturday to lift the 2016 Castle Lager Premiership title at the expense of close challengers FC Platinum.
The Harare giants went into the match leading the table with 57 points, two ahead of FC
Platinum and needed a victory of any margin to be crowned champions of Zimbabwean football.
And they did just that with Simba Nhivi scoring the only goal of the match to clinch their first league title in 11 years.
They last won the championship under Charles Mhlauri who led them to back to back championships in 2004 and 2005.
Caps United victory over Chapungu rendered FC Platinum win over Tsholotsho useless. With the victory, Caps United took their points tally to 63 two ahead of FC Platinum.
It is also Caps United coach Lloyd Chitembwe’s maiden league title since he started his coaching career.
The Caps United gaffer finished the season without tasting a defeat at the National Sports Stadium which he had turned into a virtual fortress since his appointment as coach in September last year.Advertisement
