Nyasa Big Bullets have shelved plans of playing international friendlies in preparation for the 2018 season.
Bullets Chief Executive Officer, Fleetwood Haiya, confirmed the shelving of the friendlies over the weekend, after Bullets beat Mangochi Select 3-1 and Nselema Select 5-0 at Ntaja Community Centre on Sunday and Monday, respectively.
Haiya said their ‘Taking players to supporters’ campaign’, which started a fortnight ago, has affected their plans for the international friendlies.
Bullets courted clubs from Zambia, Mozambique and Tanzania but hit a snag as their counterparts are almost through with preparations for their respective new seasons.
“In the first place, we are impressed with the tour which started in the Central Region before going to the Northern Region. Over the weekend, we invaded the Eastern Region, and this week, we are in the Southern Region.
“The plan was that, after the campaign, we should go to Zambia, Tanzania and Mozambique for friendlies but this won’t happen due to time factor. We are remaining with four weeks before the season kicks off, and we have changed our plans. We will play with Super League teams,” Haiya said.
Bullets were expected to play against Mulanje Select at Mulanje Park Stadium Wednesday.
