Weston Mumba has been appointed head coach of FAZ Division One North side Mufulira Blackpool ahead of the 2015 season.

Mumba say he has signed a two year contract at Kachofa Stadium in Kamuchanga.

The ex-Lusaka Dynamos, Forest Rangers and Lusaka Tigers trainer is being assisted by former Blackpool striker Glad Kilambe.

“I am only one month old in my job at Blackpool. I have signed a two year contract,” Mumba said.

He wants to be the Blackpool Messiah who will lead the club into the Super League.

“I think I will be the first one after a long time to take Blackpool into the Super League,” Mumba said.

He added:”In terms of preparations I am done, Iam set and very much ready for the season.”

Blackpool have never tested Super Division action.
