Envirom FC seals promotion to Malawi Super League

Evirom FC clinched promotion to the TNM Super League with an unassailable 84 points on Monday.

The Ndirande Township side joins the top flight for the first time after Harold Zulu scored the only goal in a win over Cobbe Barracks in a crucial Peter Mutharika Southern Region Football League (SRFL) clash at the BAT Ground.

Second-placed Chikhwawa United also beat rivals Nchalo United 2-1 (77 points from 36 games) and third- placed Thondwe United finished with 64 points from 33 games.

Evirom,  who are sponsored by entrepreneur Emmanuel Viola with his business of hiring out forklift trucks, have joined Super Eagles from Simama Northern Region Football League (NRFL) and Mponela United of the Chipiku Central Region Football League (CRFL), replacing relegated Bvumbwe Research, Escom United and Kabwafu.

Coach for Envirom, Paul Kachingwe  declared himself a “happy man”  for sealing the promotion.

“We’ve put a lot of hard work in so it’s good. I’m a happy man,” Kachingwe told Nyasa Times.

He said the club will need “well-wishers to join hands with our sponsor.”

Kachingwe also said he will need to sign up players to beef up the defence, midfield and striking force.

Viola has since bought a team bus which will also be operating as a passenger vehicle to supplement income for the club.
