Masters Security FC upbeat on escaping relegation


Struggling Masters Security FC remain upbeat on escaping relegation in the TNM Super League this season.

The Lilongwe-based side’s free-fall continued when they lost 1-0 to Kamuzu Barracks at Dedza Stadium on Saturday, a result which condemned them to five consecutive games without a win in the league.

But interim Coach Jabil Maliro said his charges would fight to the wire to escape the drop zone.


“It is just unfortunate that we are losing some games, but very soon, we will return to winning ways. In football, you lose and win; so no need to panic. We have good players, so we will come out good of this situation,” he said.

Masters anchor the log table with just 14 points from 19 games, five points below the safe zone.

Their woes have been worsened by the departure of two coaches, Abasi Makawa and Elia Kananji, who joined Silver Strikers and Civil Sporting Club, respectively, as assistants.


Masters also lost key defender Eric Atsigah who signed a three-year deal with Be Forward Wanderers but missed the deadline for registration.

A wrangle has since ensued between the two sides with Masters writing Football Association of Malawi to help the Ghanaian defender return to action.

Despite facing financial constraints which have seen players boycotting some matches and training sessions, Masters participated in the Confederation Cup but exited in the first round having lost 3-0 on aggregate to Proline FC of Uganda.

Masters finished the 2018 season on position four with 42 points.
