Super League players switch attention to social football


..US bound Chester involved, scores a hat-trick for Bangwe Select…

Some Super League players have now switched their attention to social games weeks after the completion of the 2018 soccer season.

The players were expected to rest after such a hectic season but it’s business as usual as some of them have already returned to the football field, this time around, playing social games where, if injured, the teams would be responsible for the treatment.

Notable faces who were at Blantyre Sports club for a social game between Chilomoni Select and Bangwe Select are Be Forward Wanderers’s Yamikani Chester, who is expected to travel to United States where he will join North Calorina FC on a seasonal long loan from MFK Vyskov as well as Nyasa Big Bullets’ trio of Precious Sambani, Miracle Gabeya and Mike Mkwate.

Chester demonstrated his skills once again when he netted a hat trick to inspire Bangwe Select to a 4-2 victory over their opponents.

Surprisingly, teams are fond of complaining about fatigue especially when the season gets hot, with cup games, super league games and national team engagements all being played within a space period of eight months.

Last season, Bullets interim head coach Calisto Pasuwa told the media in the aftermath of his team’s defeat to Masters Security in the league that his charges were showing some signs of fatigue.

Meanwhile teams are yet to comment on the matter.

During the 2018 off-season period, Bullets warned their players to refrain from involving themselves in social games after Mkwate was injured during the games and his treatment cost the club money.
