Tomorrow, the town of Bindura is set to pulse with excitement as it hosts the eagerly awaited Mashonaland Central Northern Region Division One derby between the high-flying debutants, Agama Football Club from Mt. Darwin, and the seasoned contenders, Trojan Football Club.

Both teams enter the match with momentum, having secured wins in their previous games.

Agama FC recently handed Banket United their first defeat of the season, while Trojan FC celebrated a victory over CC Mhangura.

In a recent interview with this publication, Emson Chitsungo, chairperson of Agama Football Club, expressed confidence in his team's prospects for the upcoming match.

“With the unwavering support from our club patrons, Malvern Moyo and Anne Antonio, there are no reasons why Agama will fail to secure three points from Trojan Football Club,” Chitsungo stated.

Echoing Chitsungo's sentiments, Agama’s vice chairperson, Willard Garanewako, highlighted the management’s efforts to boost player morale ahead of the crucial derby.

“As part of the club's management, we are doing everything we can to motivate our players, ensuring they remain focused and spirited for this Mashonaland Central Derby,” said Garanewako.

Garanewako further elaborated on the ethos of the club, encapsulated in its name, AGAMA, which stands for Athletic, Gallant, Aspiring, Motivated, and Achievers.

“So, 'AGAMA Football Club' could stand for 'Athletic Gallant Aspiring Motivated Achievers Football Club,' reflecting a team of determined and spirited individuals striving for excellence in their athletic pursuits,” he explained.

He said this philosophy is a testament to the club’s ambition and the high standards they set for themselves on and off the pitch.

The stakes are particularly high, as Agama currently sits two points and two places above Trojan in the league standings, occupying the eighth position with nine points, while Trojan is tenth with seven points.

This derby is not just a battle for points but also for local bragging rights, setting the stage for an intense and thrilling encounter.

As the teams prepare to face off, the entire Province watches with bated breath, anticipating a match that promises not only to showcase the spirit and skill of its players but also to ignite the passion of football fans across Mashonaland Central.
