Mighty Be Forward Wanderers are back in town after a successful trip from Lilongwe where they grabbed Wafa-Wafa Big 4 Football Bonanza after clipping Nyasa Big Bullets in their first game before pruning Kamuzu Barracks in their final match.
The Nomads beat Bullets 1-0, while 2-0 was enough for them to inflict pain on Kamuzu Barracks in their final encounter on Sunday.
On their return to their base in Blantyre on Monday, the Nomads first whistle-stopped at Fermak, who is one of Wanderers big supporter in the capital city.
Players had a five minute chat with Fermak, who hailed them for their outstanding performance during the bonanza before he gave them some cash for the journey back to the commercial capital and drinks.
From Fermak, along the Lilongwe-Blantyre M1 Road the team was escorted by a Fermak truck all the way to Nathenje Trading Centre.
From Nathenje, the team paraded its glittering trophy through Dedza, Ntcheu before their second whistle stop at Tsangano Trading Centre, where supporters gave players gifts like Irish Potatoes, tomatoes and onions, as a token of appreciation for grabbing the cup.
One fan donated a bag of Irish potato to the players.
When time for the bus to leave for Blantyre came, fans chanted: “Mabwana! Mabwana!” while clapping their hands in a jovial mood.
From Chingeni, the bus cruised all the way up to Kameza where Board of Trustees Chairman Rashid Gaffar welcomed the team.
With pomp and glamour, moving like a snail, Gaffar’s car was in front with players’ bus in the middle. Behind was Team Manager’s car with a trophy showing it to their Blantyre fans, who lined up alongside the Chirimba-Mbayani route all the way to Lali-Lubani Road.
Upon arrival at Lali-Lubani, Captain Francis Mulimbika handed over the trophy to Gaffar, who later on saluted the players for their performance.
Gaffar gave them a word of encouragement by urging them to transform the same performance during league games.
