Malawi’s first Europe based women’s football professional Tabitha Chawinga has put a foothold on her bid to win the Golden Boot Award after taking the tally to 28 goals for her Krokom/Dvarsatts in Sweden’s third tier league.
Chawinga has scored 28 goals despite playing in 14 of the 20 league games so far while the Malawian’s closest rival on second has scored 18 and the third top goal scorer has 15 goals.
The 18-year-old star attributed her success hit in one of European’s top women’s footballing country to hardwork.
“I am thankful to God for giving me this talent but I also work hard,” Chawinga said.
“I hope I will continue scoring goals to ensure that my team should do well in the league.”
She said the performance on her debut professional deal was a sign of greater things to come.
“I am optimistic that I will get some better deals for bigger clubs because I am still young,” she said.
The nimble-footed player also saluted David Dube, director of her former Malawian club DD Sunshine for being helpful to clinch the deal.
Dube is also Football Association of Malawi executive member, who has been one of the pioneers in promoting and developing women’s football in the Malawi.
