Police Tanzania target promotion to Premier League 

WITH all signs indicating that Police Tanzania may just sail into the Mainland Premier League, the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Simon Sirro is already buying prizes for his team, to be presented to the club once it makes it to the sport’s coveted stage in the country.

Sirro seems to be impressed by the fact that even during the latest match Police Tanzania thrashed opponents and garnered even more points and thus already shopping for presents should the squad make it to the domestic top flight after their spell in First Division League (FDL).

But Police Tanzania are not worried about the matter, having just thrashed Green Warriors of Dar es Salaam 1-0 in the ongoing FDL. 

The match was played at Major General Isamuhyo ground at Mbweni in Dar es Salaam last weekend.

After the match, Sirro threw a dinner party for the Police Tanzania footballers and event, which also made a standing ovation to Shaaban Stambuli who scored the squad’s goal against Green Warriors FC.

“I am counting on you to bring back trophies, as well as respect to the police force in terms of sports,” the Police Chief noted.

He pointed out that as soon as Police Tanzania FC sails into the Mainland Premier League next season, then he has ample presents ready for the players, coaches and the team’s management.

Police Tanzania FC chairperson, Commissioner Charles Mkumbo, said the team is left with only one match in the Group B of the FDL in order to sail into the Mainland Premier League.

Now, according to Mkumbo, at the moment Police Tanzania FC leads the rest of the pack in the Group B of FDL after raking in 44 points.

Police Tanzania FC currently needs just one more point for the team to enter into the domestic top flight.

“Our boys did their best to drive the team to this stage, taking into consideration that the FDL matches were tough and involved rather well-quipped teams,” Mkumbo disclosed.

“We are going to earn that in the forthcoming final FDL match,” Mbwana Makata, Police Tanzania’s head coach disclosed.

He pointed out that his players are well outfitted for the task, therefore the IGP should not worry about seeing Police Tanzania make it to the premiership.
