Management of Silver Strikers has paid players signing-on fee balances amounting to K12 million in a bid to motivate the squad to mount a serious title challenge in the final stages of the TNM Super League.

The Bankers are five points behind current leaders Kamuzu Barracks and lie fourth with 47 points from 26 games.

But the management feels that with four games to go, the club has better chances of winning the championship if the players are motivated.

A well-placed source confirmed in an interview yesterday that the club had paid all the signing-on fees dating back to last season.

“I can confirm that the players are now happy because they have received their money,” the source said, adding that the club owed each player about K500,000.

Silver revived their title ambitions last Sunday after beating Red Lions 2-1 at Silver Stadium to end a six-game winless streak.

However, Silver General Secretary, Thabo Nyirenda, could neither confirm nor deny issuing of the payment but said the welfare of the players was important for the team to perform well.

“Players need to be motivated all the times and at Silver, we value our players quite a lot,” he said.

Nyirenda expressed optimistism that the Bankers can still win the league title this season despite trailing the leaders by five points.

The Bankers travel to Mzuzu to play Moyale Barracks at Mzuzu Stadium on Sunday.

Last season, Silver endured a miserable campaign when they finished the season empty-handed.

Following the disastrous season, the team embarked on a rebuilding exercise that led to axing of over 11 senior players.
