Sustainable Urban Land and Shelter Development Consultants (Sulsdec Green Villages) has officially handed over a plot worth K1.2 million to Flames and Silver Strikers goalkeeper Charles Thom.
The company pledged the plot to the goalkeeper after his impressive form with the Flames at the just ended Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) finals in Cameroon.
Sulsdec, with sponsorship from Kaku Pay, handed over the 15 metres by 30 metres plot, which is situated near Barons Estate (Airwing) in Lilongwe, at a ceremony held in Lilongwe on Wednesday.
Sulsdec Business Development Manager Yamija Nyirenda said the goalkeeper deserved credit for his performance.
“He did the nation proud. This is one way of showing our appreciation to the player,” Nyirenda said.
On his part, Thom, formerly of Dwangwa United, was excited and hailed the company for fulfilling its promise.
“This is a motivation to me and I promise to continue giving the best for both club and country,” Thom said.
The 23-year-old goalkeeper was voted as man-of-the-match on his Flames debut in a goal-less draw against newly crowned African champions, Senegal, in the group stage.
After his performance against Senegal, Thom also maintained his place in the starting line up in the 2-1 loss to Morocco in the Round of 16. Several Flames players, including striker Gabadinho Mhango, defender Lawrence Chaziya and midfielder Francisco Madinga, had a good tournament in Cameroon.
