Mighty Be Forward Wanderers players received a big boost ahead of Saturdays Standard Bank Cup encounter against Blue Eagles as their sponsors donated football equipment worth $7,000.
The donation took place on Monday at their Lali-Lubani Road Club House in Blantyre.
Wanderers general secretary Mike Butao said the donation which included travelling bags, football boots which were branded names of each player was a token of pride for winning the Carlsberg Cup.
“This is a big boost ahead of the Standard bank semi final match in Lilongwe and the players now know that the sponsors will always reward good performance. That has set a big challenge for them to do well in both the Carlsberg Cup and the remaining league games,” said Butao.
On Saturday’s encounter, Butao said they are geared for the game and urged all Nomads fans in Lilongwe to fill up Civo Stadium to cheer their team.
“We promise them joy at the end of the match,” said Butao.
He also hinted that four of their players, who sustained injuries like Rafiq Mussa, Francis Mlimbika, Jabulani Linje and Ishmael Thindwa have started light training.
Commenting on the donation, Wanderers goalkeeper Richard Chipuwa thanked the sponsors and assured them of more cups to come.
“We do not take this for granted. We will make sure that we clinch more cups. This donation has boosted the morale in camp, and we will be invading Lilongwe with one mission, which is to win the game,” said Chipuwa.
Another Nomads midfielder Alfred Manyozo Jnr said the donation has lifted their spirit ahead of Blue Eagles encounter.
“Our spirits have been lifted with this donation. We just say bravo Be Forward and forward ever,” said Manyozo.
