Team History & Background


About Chicken Inn FC

Chicken Inn was originally known as Bakers Inn a social club where Innscor workers and outsiders would gather and socialise with other teams.

In 2004 then Bakers Inn joined the Division three League as a social independent team.

The Company eventually came on board to sponsor the team in 2005 hence the change in name from Bakers Inn to Chicken Inn. During this period it was coached by Dickson Mbazo who was assisted by Mark Mathe.

The company under Bakers Inn in 2006-7 joined forces to sponsor Highlanders and in 2006, in that same year Highlanders lifted the Premier Soccer League Championship.

In 2008 the team was promoted to Division one and Mark Mathe was Promoted to the position of Head Coach after the then Head Coach Dickson Mbazo had resigned to join another Division One side in the region. Mathe was assisted by Saymore Dube and Julius Ndhlovu.

In 2009 Wilbert Sibanda was appointed the team Manager and Xavier Kamitsa was introduced as the team doctor whereas the technical team remained the same.

The team was posed for Championship glory but unfortunately it lost grip of the top spot and drew nine successive league games. This poor run of form saw Mathe resign as the Head Coach with Saymore Dube taking over as the interim coach for just two games. After the two games the late Lindile Dube was appointed as the Head coach up to the end of the season.
