Konkola Blades coach Enos Silwimba has hailed his side for bouncing back to the FAZ Super Division.
Konkola secured promotion on Sunday after beating Chingola Police 1-0 at Nchanga Stadium to open a six point lead at the top of the Division One Zone Two table.
Isaac Ngoma’s lone goal on 10 minutes moved Konkola to 60 points, six above, second placed Kitwe United who drew 2-2 at Bresmar United on Sunday.
“I salute my boys (players) for working extra hard despite facing some challenges. Team work and consistency through out the season kept us going,” Silwimba said.
” I just want to thank the sponsors, the executive especially the chairman, Including my fellow coaches Lewington Mujembe and Benard Chela and the players,” he said.
Silwimba has since called for hard work as Konkola prepares to compete in the top flight league.
“We have to work extra hard so that we can continue playing in the Super Division. We don’t want to go back to the same things that contributed to our demotion,” he noted.
The Chililabombwe club secured promotion with a game to spare just a year after suffering demotion.
