Livingstone Bola challenge complimented
Zesco Vic Falls skipper Bwalya Chiti has heaped praise at the Livingstone Bola challenge organizers for the man of the match award prize which acts as a dangling carrot for players to put in an extra effort and bring Super league football to the tourist capital city of Zambia.
The erstwhile Zesco United defender was yesterday picked as the Bola challenge man of the match when his side beat town rivals Livingstone Pirates 1-0 in a FAZ Division One Zone Four encounter at Victoria Falls Ground.
He took home to his coffers a Five hundred Kwacha of amount for putting up a man of the match shift.
The back of the net was located by striker Raymond Mwanakatwe’s GPS in the first half of the clash after being nicely set up by an ace winger Igneous Muleya – who was making his return to the Zesco Vic falls fold after spending months on the sidelines with an injury.
Speaking to the press after the presentation, Bwalya, a man of short words was full of praise and urged the organizers to keep up with the good work.
He has a bucketful of confidence the Zesco United developmental side, who are sitting temporary on top of the log before Manchester United Zambia Academy and Maramba Stars go toe to toe this afternoon, can secure Super league promotion.
“I just want to thank them [The Livingstone Bola Challenge organizers]. They should continue what they are doing,” he said.
“Knowing we have a chance of playing Super league football is what motivates us to work hard. I have full confidence we will win promotion.”
According to one of the organizers, a football Analyst Bwezani Mbewe, the Livingstone Bola challenge was formed so as to unite Livingstone fans provides incentives to players in form of the man of the match award.
He explains how the Five Hundred Kwacha prize money is obtained: “We formed a group of about 90 fans and each one contributes a Twenty Kwacha amount.”
The Bola challenge only involves three Livingstone clubs plying their trade in the second tier: Maramba Stars, Livingstone Pirates and Zesco Vic falls. The prize money only applies for home matches.
