Champions! Big Bullets
Champions! Big Bullets

The people’s team had already won the title but the final game win added to their vintage celebrations after Blantyre United players mounted a guard of honour for the Bullets stars trooping off Kamuzu Stadium dressing room.

Adding colour to the part were goals by Jelesi Lufeyo, Pilirani Zonda and Jimmy Zakakazaka in the  11th, 45th and 52nd minutes which means the Bullets ended the campaign with 62 points, just two losses, home clean slate and least 18 goals conceded.

Bullets finished nine points clear of second-placed Moyale Barracks who lost 2-1 to third-positioned Blue Eagles.

The only consolation for Moyale is that they produced the leading scorer. Gastin Simkoda netted 17 goals.

Captain of the day Sankhani Mkandawire received the trophy from Super League of Malawi (Sulom) president Innocent Botomani.

“It was a good season for Bullets and its fantastic to be champions again,” said consultant coach Nsazwirimo Ramadhan.

Bullets head coach Elias Kananji  who has guided his team to a double including Carlsberg Cup, missed the last game as he is in Zimbabwe on Malawi Under-17 duty.

Triumphant Bullets fans i danced in the streets and some escorted the team’s buss to cheer  their heroes, setting off flares and red smoke bombs.

Over in the capital Lilongwe, the mood was decidedly less celebratory for Silver Strikers  as visiting Azam Tigers FC spoiled the Bankers ambition of finishing on fourth position when they beat the hosts 1-0.

Karonga United, Blantyre United and Chikwawa United have been relegated.

The three teams will be replaced by three regional champions in the top tier league.

Dont blame TNM for not beaming the finals.TNM is not a media house,does it give sense to be given both salt and relish by the same person? Media houses are to blame for not convincing sponsors to beam super league games.Big up Bullets and TNM

bullets woyeeeee.we.
but it’s sad to fight for championship worthy 9million yet the amount pumped in is 150million. Tnm is just using the teams for nothing. it’s a rip off. think of how much teams spent the whole season in training travelling etc for a year. think of it. it could hv been say 50m for the winner and mk100 m for administration or vice versa. IT’S A RIP OFFFFFFFFF. STOP THIS MADNESS
