Three Nyasa Big Bullets players are engaged in a race for the Precious Medical Insurance (PMI) goal-of-the-month award for December.

The three, who steered Bullets to the Airtel Top 8 final with a goal each in a 3-1 win over Silver Strikers on December 10, are Ernest Petro, Gomezgani Chirwa and Patrick Mwaungulu.

Supporters are voting for their favourite goal scorer by sending the name of their chosen player to 441 from a TNM or Airtel phone, with each SMS costing K50.


Voting closes today, with the winner pocketing K100,000.

Chirwa bagged the inaugural award presented early last month, after his goal in Bullets’ 3-1 thumping of Moyale in a TNM Super League match on November 12 won the supporters’ hearts.

PMI Chief Executive Officer Gertrude Mateyu said the award aims at motivating Bullets players to be scoring goals in their matches.


“Football is about scoring goals. We therefore committed K100,000 towards the best goal of the month. Bullets fit well into our plans because they are a winning brand,” Mateyu said.

Chirwa got 64 percent of the total votes to win the inaugural award, shrugging off competition from Lanjesi Nkhoma and Hassan Kajoke.

Nkhoma finished second with 14 percent while third- placed Kajoke amassed 11 percent of the votes.

Speaking after receiving the inaugural accolade, Chirwa said he was looking forward to the December edition.

“This will motivate me to do better and I am looking forward to the next,” he said.

Bullets supporters already voted Chirwa as the club’s player of the season while Mwaungulu won the discovery-of-the-season award, with Petro being voted midfielder of the season.

Bullets Chief Administration Officer Albert Chigoga said the December edition is the last for the 2022 season.

“We have now taken our off-season break and there will be no football for January and February. The award will return in March when we will begin preparations for the 2023 season,” Chigoga said.
