It was all smiles for all Nyasa Big Bullets players on Wednesday following a donation of football equipment including boots and balls from their sponsors Nyasa Manufacturing Company (NMC).
According to NMC Financial Director Fleetwood Haiya, the donation is worth over K7 million and is not part of the contractual obligation.
But Haiya said the equipment is not for free and the sponsors have since challenged the players to pay back through winning trophies starting with the Wafa Wafa Big Four Bonanza scheduled for this weekend in Lilongwe.
The People’s Team has also been challenged to reclaim the Super League title which is being held by Kamuzu Barracks FC.
Haiya said the doation is a symbol of assuarance to the Bullets family that NMC is fully behind the team despite recent squables.
On his remarks, NMC Managing Director Konrad Buckle also assured the team of maximum support including fulfilling the needs of the coach to ensure the team reclaim the league title after missing it by a whisker last season.
Buckle hailed Bullets players for playing to the best of their ability last season which saw them finishing second in the league with a point behind champions Kamuzu Barracks.
Commenting on the recent turmoil, Buckle said there is no hundred percent sanity but revealed strides have been made and expressed confidence that everything will soon be alright.
“I have all the confidence that everything will be solved,” said Buckle while praising authorities for togetherness shown so far.
Bullets will be seeking a revenge against their bitter rivals as the two giants clush in the Wafa Wafa Big Four Bonanza on Saturday at the Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe.
The winner will face the winner between Kamuzu Barracks and Silver Strikers on Sunday afternoon on the same venue.
Bullets lost their last two encounters against their rivals (5-1 on aggregate) they suffered in the back to back meeting of the Luso Bus Ipite Bonanza.
