Weekend Scorecard: Warriors Hire Ngwenya & Sichikolo

Share

Kabwe Warriors have moved in to try and avert their crisis with the appointment of Dick Ngwenya as head coach of the struggling provincial giant.

Ngwenya will be assisted by Happy Sichikolo who both return for second stints after being on the Warriors bench in 2002 and 2010 respectively.

The development means Ngwenya leaves the comfort of 5th placed promoted Nakambala Leopards where his assistant Weston Mumba is expected to take full charge.

Sichikolo returns to Warriors after a two-month stint at Faz Division 1 South side FC Paramilitary whom he joined in May this year.

And very brave Sichikolo said he was excited about returning back to the club where he played and coached before he was fired in the second half of last season.

“I am always a Warriors fan, I love Kabwe Warriors and I enjoyed playing football at Kabwe Warriors,” Sichikolo said.

Warriors are in the mire and third from bottom on 13 points from 15 games played with just three wins all season.

Sichikolo and Ngwenya now have 15 games to ensure their rekindled love affair with Warriors has a fairy tale ending.

Mufulira Wanderers yesterday failed to topple leaders Indeni from the top of the Faz Division 1 table after drawing away in Ndeke, Ndola on Sunday.

The two sides drew 0-0 at Indeni Sports Complex to see the situation in the top two in Division 1 North stay unchanged.

Indeni continue to enjoy a two-point lead at the top of the table on 32 points while Wanderers stay number two on 30 points.

Meanwhile in Division 1 South, City of Lusaka are the new leaders after a 3-1 home win over Paramilitary who are coached by the Woodlands clubs former coach Happy Sichikolo.

It was sweet revenge for City who were beaten 2-1 in the two sides first meeting away in Lilayi this past May.

City replace Luena Buffaloes at the top of the table after the Kaoma sides’ match away to Kalomo Jetters was postponed due to operational reasons by the visitors.

The Woodlands clubs moved up to 33 points from 18 games played while Luena are second on 31 points with a game in hand.

  1. What we should all be saying to RBish is, “ufisanji mamabala iwe?????” I suggest we all start singing this on Fridays at mid day – “Ufisanji mambala iwe, ufisanji mambala iwe”, then we blow the car horns, then end with the same chorus!!!
