“Most of our players are primary and secondary school students residing at Bumbu settlement.
“We have continued our premiership record since the club’s 2015 inception, formerly under Wascom (changed to Dulux in 2019).
“Last season was disrupted by Covid-19.
“So we are looking forward to defending our premiership title from 2019.
“Our preparations for the finals have been focused on teamwork and to play the finals like any other game we’ve played.”
Dulux’s mixed team will meet Jetsmart Crushers while their men’s grand finalists will standby for the winner of the semifinal between Nomads and Jetsmart Crushers.
