Five in Standard Bank Cup Golden Boot race


As Be Forward Wanderers and Civo United battle for 2015 Standard Bank Knock-Out Cup on October 31, 2015, five players will fight for the cup’s Golden Boot award worth K100,000.

Currently, Civo’s Standard Bank Knock-Out Cup semifinal hero, Raphael Phiri, is leading the golden boot race with two goals he netted in 2-1 win over Big Bullets.

Phiri, who is on loan from Karonga United, wrote his name in the competition’s history books with the second half brace last Thursday at Kamuzu Stadium.


According to Football Association of Malawi (Fam) competitions manager, Gomezgani Zakazaka, Phiri is the only player who has scored twice in this year’s competition.

Ironically, the Civo and Bullets’ match is the only one which has produced three goals, whereas the rest have either been won by 1-0 margins or through post-match penalties.

Phiri’s teammates, Gerald Nkungula and Nelson Kangunje, are also in the chase for the award after scoring once each.


Wanderers forwards, Muhammad Sulumba and Luka Milanzi, are also in contention for the award with a goal each.

Zakazaka said they were looking forward to a successful and exciting final at a venue to be announced.

“We have had a violence-free competition. The quality of football has been exciting and we saw drama in the Bullets and Civo semifinal which produced the most goals this season. The narrow winning margins also signify that there was stiff competition this year,” he said.

This year’s champions will dethrone Silver Strikers and they will be rewarded with K10 million prize money in the competition’s ninth edition.
