Westerns franchise to be called the Matabeleland TuskersPosted by brmtaylor.com admin on July 02, 2009
The Chronicle has revealed that the Westerns franchise, headed by CEO Stanley Staddon, will be named the Matabeleland Tuskers, no doubt a reference to the many elephants in the region.
It was believed that they wanted to be called the Matabeleland Warriors, so why they have decided on the Tuskers is still not known.
The Tuskers logo is expected to be an elephant with Victoria Falls in the background, with their main colour being blue.
Meanwhile, any thoughts that ZC may employ some sort of draft system can now be dismissed after it has emerged that the Matabeleland franchise have already awarded their players contracts.
brmtaylor.com can reveal that former IT manager and national team match analyst, Anesu Kafesu, has replaced Givemore Makoni as the national team manager. Makoni was recently appointed CEO of the Southern franchise, which is set to be named the Southern Rocks. It is unknown why this name was chosen, as Zimbabwe's famous balancing rocks are in Epworth near Harare.
