CY Sisters captain off to Zambia for trials
By Chifundo Zingunde, contributor:
CY Sisters’ lethal striker Vitumbiko Mkandawire will today travel to Zambia to attend trials at Zambian Institute for Sustainable Development Women Football Club (ZISD) which plays in the elite league.
The Northern Region Fam League champions captain would spend two weeks in Zambia’s capital Lusaka from today to March 1 2023.
According to CY Sisters Head Coach Aaron Kamanga, Mkandawire has proved to be a complete player, with vast ability to do well in Zambia.
“She is a complete striker; a player that every coach wants to have. I believe she will excel in Zambia. Her track record has proved it in the past three seasons. Now it’s her chance to shine,” Kamanga said.
He encouraged Mkandawire to prove her worth to the nation.
Mkandawire said she will give out her best since she knows the importance of the deal to her career.
“I will give out my best because I know how important it is to play outside Malawi. I, as a player, don’t take this opportunity for granted. During the off season, I was training on my own,” Mkandawire said.
If Mkandawire passes the assessment, she will become the fourth Malawian player to ply her trade in Football Association of Zambia’s Women’s Super- Division, joining Chimwemwe Madise, Madyina Nguluwe and stopper Ruth Mhango.
Mkandawire won the golden boot for the maiden Malawi Football Women national championship with 11 goals.
She was also the top goal scorer for Fam Women Football League after scoring 30 goals in 14 games.
