Newly-crowned champions for the Simama Premier Division, Chitipa United, will beef up their squad in preparation for the 2017 TNM Super League season.
The Northern Region Football Association’s (NRFA) ambassadors earned promotion in their debut season in the division, outclassing old timers such as last year’s champions, Chilumba Barracks FC.
An official for the team, George Ndenga, on Monday said the team will off-load some players for experienced ones.
“We should not be carried away with our performance in the Premier Division since the Super League is tougher. We will bank on other teams in the Premier Division for players, so that we can form a strong squad,” Ndenga said.
NRFA Fixtures’ Secretary, Ollens Msonda, asked other teams to support Chitipa for them to survive in the elite league.
The team’s striker, Abel Mwakilama, topped the goal scorers’ list with 38 goals followed by Kaporo Stars’ Suzgo Siyeni with 35 goals.
Chitipa finished the division with 89 points followed by Kaporo’s 85. Moyale and Mzuni FC are the other Super League clubs from the region.
