Nkana finally win Barclays Cup title


The Barclays Bank cup quarter final Zesco vs Nkana

Nkana claimed their maiden Barclays Cup trophy after thumping lower division side Young Buffaloes 3-0 in Saturday’s final played at Heroes Stadium in Lusaka.

Striker Ronald Kampamba sent Nkana to the winners podium with a first half brace while Walter Bwalya scored the other goal.

With President Edgar Lungu in the stands, Sate Sate handed Kalampa a lead after 11 minutes before completing his double seven minutes away from the break.

Bwalya completed the rout with a 47th minute goal that helped him emerge man of the match.

Young Buffaloes showed little resistance as they tested first defeat in the 2018 Barclays Cup.

Nkana showed the intent to win by fielding a stronger squad that had all their stars among them Musa Mohammed, Joseph Musonda, Jacob Ngulube and Harrison Chisala and Richard Ocran.

Meanwhile, Kalampa were appearing in the Barclays Cup for the second time having been losing finalists against Zesco United in 2014.

Nkana are pocketing K400, 000 as champions and runners up Young Buffaloes will get K180, 000.


  1. Insambu K500,000 only? So players to be given k10,000 iyeeee mwebo! 10 years ago uyu catile ati uyu nani uyu Ronaldo ehee, was getting 100,000 pounds per two weeks. Ngalelo nilunga?
    Anyway better than some of us really.

  2. I watched the match. The game lacked technical accuracy by Nkana. They won not because theyear out played, but because of a psychological defeat by young mboo. If nkana had to meet zesco or zanaco though bonse fisoso, it was going to a different results altogether. I hope nkana is not in the continental competition because the team is far from that level. Anyway in the absence of the best, they care our best.

    • Awe naimwe. What sort of standard did you expect? Both the teams in the final played and beat the best teams in the league-Power Dynamos, Green Buffalos,Zanaco and Zesco. So dont know which other team you expected to play Nkana in the final.

  3. What happened to you young Mboo? I think that they were intimidated by the presence of top brass and especially the President.
    Oh I mean The PRESIDENT OF ZAMBIA not tuma pretenders and hallucinators president Hacks.
