As one way of interacting with their supporters in remote areas, Mighty Be Forward Wanderers on Thursday travelled to Ngokwe in Machinga district where they played Ngokwe United in front of thousands of fans at Ngokwe ground.
The 0-0 encounter, the Nomads were kept on a tight rope in the first 15 minutes as Ngokwe were coming wave after wave knocking on their door.
The rookies were good on the midfield, but poor upfront where their strikers lacked composure as most of their shots went wide.
However, the Nomads could have scored in the 17th minute when they were awarded a penalty after Felix Zulu was brought down in the box.
When it was the turn of Jimmy Zakazaka to convert the penalty, the goalkeeper saved.
Then it was the Nomads turn, as they tormented the youngsters with brilliant passes, especially from the midfield where Rafiq Namwera partnered Ernest Tambe.
The Nomads were also brilliant on the right wing where Felix Zulu was sharp with his passes, crosses and tight marking.
Another notable player, who was outstanding for the Nomads, was Ted Sumani in defence.
After the match, Be Forward Wanderers team manager Steve Madeira said they wanted to give a chance to their fans who reside in villages to chill with their players.
“We thought it wise to give a chance to our fans in typical villages to chat and watch some of our players. It is not easy for most people in villages to find money to watch the team play in Blantyre or Lilongwe, and we said why can’t we take the team to them,” said Madeira.
The team also went to Nsanama where they won 2-1 against Nsanama United.
In other friendly matches, the Nomads beat Red Lions, Mafco and lost to Wizards.
Meanwhile, in their quest to gear up for the 2016 season, the Nomads will on Sunday play Zomba United at the Zomba Community Centre Ground.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
