SIMBA Bhora duo of Simbarashe Maramwidze and Roland Kangadzi seem to be destined to play for the club for a long time.
The miners have progressed up the local football pyramid from Division Two to the Premiership.
Maramwidze and Kangadzi have been with them every step of the way, representing the Shamva side in every league.
Good coaches and players have come and gone but this duo keeps enjoying a quiet ride.
Interestingly, they both hail from Bindura.
Maramwidze was one of the club’s better players on their journey to the Premiership.
Besides Tinashe Balakasi, who cut ties with the club at the end of the season to join Botswana’s Orapa United, Maramwidze is the only player who has scored for the club in three different seasons.
Last season, a lot was expected from this speedy winger, but he endured a reduced role as he struggled with injuries.
But, the 24-year-old was given another chance despite only finding the net once last season.
Kangadzi is the younger brother of former Dynamos hitman, Quality.
But, the 26-year-old operates in the defensive unit as a right-back.
He was preferred by the team’s coach, Tonderai Ndiraya for the better part of the second half of the season.
And, he is expected to continue with that responsibility on the right side of defense this season.
Kangadzi has made interesting progress, especially when considering that he featured less than three times for the club when they were still battling for promotion in the ZIFA Northen Region Division One Soccer League.
The duo hailed Ndiraya for embracing their ability.
“It’s been a memorable journey with this club, it feels good to be here and this team has given us new life.
“I also want to thank coach Ndiraya for believing in us because many never believed we would remain at the club when it gained promotion.
“He has helped us in many ways, we are grateful and it’s now our turn to return that favor by matching his expectations every time we get the chance to play,” said Maramwidze.
“I’m really excited that the coach has been equipping us with all the information needed to play in the PSL and I hope our home-boys are being inspired by our progress.
“I also want to thank the team’s boss, Simba ‘Buju’ Ndoro for presenting us with this opportunity, and this will also give many youngsters in our province the courage to keep pushing because they now know that it is possible,” said Kangadzi.
