Extension Gunners supporters tasted a rare moment of happiness when their club beat BR Highlanders 5-1 at Lobatse Sport Complex on Friday night. This was the team’s first win under Coach Daniel Nare after he was recently re-appointed. Nare was brought back to Gunners because he had previously proven his high coaching skills.
The win came at a time when the club was struggling and faced unrest from within. Gunners’ management has been blamed of the team’s poor run in the league and other competitions. The supporters have since resorted to extreme measures that saw the Chairman Kitso Dlamini resign his post in fear for his live. The supporters want the management, which is visibly divided, to step down and let in the new broom to clean up the team. The win is seen as a sign of new life by the team and is expected to go a long way to suppress for a short while the aggression that has been shown by some supporters.
A source close to one of Gunners’ supporters branch said they will be happy it the management just go. The supporters had at an earlier stage tried to pass a motion of no confidence on the management. However, it did not materialise since it was said to have been brought up through a wrong platform. The club, however, will be having a special general meeting this coming weekend where the issue is expected to be on the agenda.
