Golden Bullets Coach glory days
The Golden Bullets’ coach proves to have restored the glory days at the Division 1 club.
The interim coach has proven that he is very tactical, as he has managed and helped the team sail through relegation.
Mark Graceview made a perfect start as the interim coach of the Golden Bullets, taking them from the relegation zone to a contest for the top 5.

Mark was appointed as the interim coach, who restored the glory days of golden bullets as he won his first home game and away game consecutively, turning the wheel the other way around.
The winning momentum turned into a match played at a fully packed stadium as the Stars tackled the Golden Bullets in a local derby.
It was the first game for Mark Mathe as the interim coach, and it was a tantamount task to tackle, but he delivered.
The Golden Bullets drew the first blood, with probably the fastest goal of the season coming in 32 seconds of the kick-off.
The goalkeeper played a nice one-two with the help of some defense blunders that led to the opening goal by Albert “Zoma” Nyamtsyaka, who finished with a clever chip finish.
With the game still in its early stages, the Stars defense was shaky, and their opponents capitalized on those mistakes as they came close to doubling their advantage.
With six minutes played, the home team was shaky again, starting from the midfielders to the goalkeeper, and the Golden Bullets made sure that they punished them as they scored a goal. Nyamutsaka doubled the lead after one of the worst goalkeeping performances witnessed at Stadium, as Stars’ keeper Shingai failed to get a handle on a rolling ball that resulted in the second goal.
The home team’s response after two goals was better as they started to play some steady football, and in 22 minutes they pulled one back with a rocket shot straight into the roof of the net that the Golden Eagles’ keeper could do nothing about. It became a blow-to-blow match as both teams were attacking, and the Golden Eagles’ captain, Henry M., rounded the keeper, but his shot was goal-bound but was cleared by Allsein Dube, keeping the score line at 2–1.
After the match, coach Graceview said it was a tough game, but they executed their game plan well. “It was a tough game, and they are no easy games in the Northern Region Soccer League.
Chanhou’s domestic league is no exception. “However, the plan was to attack from the onset because that is the best you could ever do. So, the trick was to attack when we had to and defend when we had to. “Holismically, the plan was to score early goals, two or three if we had been clinical in our finishing.” The stars traveled to Black Shine, where they lost again one-nil.
They conceded the goal in the added time after a lack of concentration. Their next match is at home against Luyto United, where they are looking for.
