Zesco step up 2018 pre-season training

Sports Zesco step up 2018 pre-season training

Defending FAZ Super Division champions Zesco United are set for a one week training camp in Mongu.

The 2017 champions kicked off their 2018 pre-season training on January 8 at their Trade Fair Ground base in Ndola.

“We are going away to Monday for seven days starting next Wednesday,” Zesco coach Tenant Chembo said.

Zesco have just completed their first week of pre-season with home-based players who include striker Winston Kalengo who has returned after a two year stint at Congo-Brazzaville giants AC Leopards.

Ghana-born forward Adams Zikiru, who has joined from Nchanga Rangers, has also been part of the first weekend of training.

Nkwazi striker Lameck Banda, defender’s Solomon Sakala from Napsa Stars and Edward Tembo of City of Lusaka are the other new faces who have reported for pre-season training.

“Everyone should be in before we leave. We are expecting the Kenyans and the Burundi guys to arrive on January 13,” Chembo said.

Jesse Were, Anthony Akumu and David Owino from Kenya including the Burundi duo of Enock Sabamukama and goalkeeper Dieudonne Ntibahezwa are all still away on holiday.

Meanwhile, Zesco’s first scheduled assignment for the year will be an away date in Zanzibar against JKU during the weekend of February 12.

The two sides play in a 2018 CAF Champions League preliminary round, first leg match before Zesco hosts JKU in Ndola on February 17.
