This comes barely two days after the Bankers were knocked out of the tournament by the defending champions of the prestigious Carlsberg Cup Big Bullets F.C 3-0  at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.

Chirwa said he submitted names of players that he needed to be bring into the squad as to beef up the squad during the ongoing transfer window but the executive hasn’t yet acted on the matter.

The team has been struggling since the departure of some of its key players at the beginning of the 2015 soccer season.

Chirwa without mentioning names maintained that he need at least a new signing in almost all the departments including in goals.

“Everyone can see that we need to bring in some good and experienced players after losing almost half of the main team to other teams abroad” Chirwa said on Monday.

Nyasa Times understands that the Bankers are chasing the signatures of Mighty Be Forward Wanderers keepers Bester Phiri and Richard Chipuwa, Civo United defender John Lanjesi and Bullets in form striker Chiukepo Msowoya.

Reports indicate that Civo has set a price tag of K4 Million for John Lanjesi while Wanderers are demanding K3 Million for Phiri but as of Chipuwa, the Nomads say he is not for sale.

Bullets F.C has also emphasized that their man of the moment Msowoya who underwent trials in South Africa and Lebanon the past few weeks is “not for sale”.

Meanwhile, unconfirmed reports indicates that Silver is planning to rope in former Flames coach Young Chimodzi and Silver Legend Lovemore Fazili to take over as head coach and deputy respectively.

The problem I see at Silver is clueless executive. Since the departure of Mafuta Mwale as Chairman things are not moving well. The current chairman is either too sleepy or not interested in football at all.Blaming coaches is not a solution….I will give examples of BPL teams e.g Mancity have reinforced their squad by buying quality players and they are still pursuing other quality signings and they have began the league on fire, they didn’t fire pellegrin their coach, Chelsea haven’t reinforced their squad so far and you can see they are struggling and the coach Mourinho is also appealing… Read more »

Komanso just take a look at this Stain “Theba” Chirwa. He looks clueless on that sit.


musalimban nimakochi,vuto nitimu imene anakamenya nayo inakula.Mwaiwala kale kut munamenya katimu kaku BT 2-0 pa home ana aku MZ mpaka 9-0.Pepani a STAIN olakwa ndife.


Nkhani sikucho kochi koma kolite ya mapulea. Ndie ngati inu a’executive’ mukufuna Chimodzi ndie musagule mapulea eyeyo akasule omwe alipowo mpaka titenge ‘league’ iyaaa!


Nyakwawa, bodzatu ili, Young Chimodzi can not do this. I know his personality I have grown up with him. In case some of you do not know Young’s back ground. Young had ever played for Silver Strikers. He once played as coach player and Silver managed to grab lots of trophies during his time even with other clubs he had coached. Honestly I wouldn’t mind seeing Young coaching Silver again. Its his TEAM!!!!!!!


Amenewa ndi madando ama bankers, tipemphe a mfumu nawonso atilankhule kkkkkkk

Other players @ silver atopa, chigololo chapweta nd atsikana a kwa chiuzira, gaga,mgona,kauma, kaliyeka. U expect to win games with such hule players? Buy new players to beef up the team. Aganyufe tingopenya, tili duuu! Inu busy pa Bwandilo kumwa napolo, instead of buying players!


You even went as far as sending some players out on loan.

Is Ayugo s miracle coach? Silver has no progressive strikers at all. Green &Wadabwa are rejects from Zimbabwe & Botswana respectively. The loss of Kaonga is a big loss as a result there was a need to replace him with another of such calibre. Tiyeni nazo abwere Youngyo without quality striker munyetsedwa chaka chake ndichino ndithu.

Vuto is our executive which is clueless and zampila zazidziwa. They sold players to foreign clubs without even of thinking replacing, how would you expect the team to still be strong and perfom? Firing of coaches is not a solution is just a scapegoat to buy sympathy. How can Fred Kalonga hold position of Treasure and General Secretaty sangazikwanitse achepa nazo zibwana zili thoo kumangomwa mowa ntauni ati akugula maplayer can you buy a player pa mowa za mkutu. Nde mavuto akadalipo executive kuli tiwana tamchombo lende kumangopanga matama ntauni. Lanjesi akuti akudula can yu buy a gud player motchipa… Read more »
