Despite a P2 million partnership and recruitment of new players, Extension Gunners’ machine is still spluttering. Loyal but long suffering Gunners fans thought the team had hit the road to recovery with the cash injection and new talent, but the cruel reality has once again reared its ugly head, observes Staff Writer MQONDISI DUBE

Extension Gunners has avid followers from the foot of the Peleng Hills to the sprawling suburb of Monarch in Francistown, hundreds of kilometres away. But the famous crossing guns representing the aspirations of many black and white fans on the team’s logo have failed to fire for several years. In fact, fighting relegation and performing annual Houdini acts has become part of an unwanted agenda at the club. A team that has legendary stories of success in the 1990s has crumbled and languishes in mangled wreckage, which can only be untangled by the ‘jaws of life’.

The club has found an irritant in persistent financial challenges which every season appears ready to sound the death knell. The black and white family will be wary of cases where the finance cancer succeeded to knock out some opponents and has presently manifested itself in the body of ECCO City Greens. ECCO were left scrambling for crumbs after BMC pulled the plug on a lengthy partnership.
