Zesco down 10-man Nkana to win Charity Shield

Sports Zesco down 10-man Nkana to win Charity Shield

Zesco United thumped Nkana 2-0 in the Charity Shield final at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium on Sunday to grab the first silverware of the season.

A second half brace by forward John Ching’andu sent Zesco to the winners podium to lift the shield renamed after Zambia and Mufulira Wanderers great Samuel “Zoom” Ndhlovu.

Ching’andu was on the score-sheet with two speculative but spectacular long range goals in the 46th and 69th minute respectively after a goalless first half.

Nkana were forced to play the last 32 minutes of the match with ten men after captain Donashano Malama saw red from referee Wellington Kaoma for allegedly stamping on Zesco defender Ben Bahn.

The first half was tightly contested with both teams missing nice opportunities.

Jesse Were forced a save from Kelvin Malunga after six minutes before Ronald Kampamba saw his close range header fly over the bar a minute later.

Malunga who had a memorable first further stopped Idriss Mbombo and Davy Daka from scoring.

Walter Bwalya almost grabbed a consolation goal for Nkana but his effort hit the upright with Zesco keeper Jacob Banda completely beaten.
