Nkana win 2014 Charity Shield

Sports Nkana win 2014 Charity Shield

Nkana came from behind to beat 10-man Red Arrows 3-1 to lift the 2014 Samuel ‘Zoom’ Ndhlovu Charity Shield this afternoon in Kitwe.

Nkana sealed the win without five first team players who were side-lined due to injury namely strikers Ronald Kampamba and Lottie Nyimbili, midfielders Claude Bwalya, Kelvin Mubanga and Frank Chibuye and defender Masauso Zimba.

Three second half goals from Simon Bwalya and Evans Kangwa settled this contest at Arthur Davies Stadium after Arrows had taken a 1-0 halftime lead through Dube Phiri in the 5th minute.

Second half substitute Bwalya levelled in the 54th minute before adding his second in the 77th minute.

Kangwa marked his return to Nkana after a seven-month self-imposed exile with a stoppage time header to hand Nkana their first Charity Shield title since 2000.

Meanwhile, Arrows were earlier on reduced to ten men after defender Joseph Zimba was sent off for a second bookable offence by referee Jan Sikazwe in the 84th minute.

Nkana have now completed key back-to-back wins over Arrows in a four month period whom they thumped 4-1 on November 17 on the final day of the season to lift the 2013 league title.
