Tabitha Chawinga soars in Europe


The year 2015 will go a long way as one of the most memorable in Malawi’s women football after Europe-based players, Tabitha Chawinga and Chisomo Kazisonga, set alight their respective leagues in Sweden and Austria.

Chawinga and Kazisonga displayed solid performances, demonstrating that Malawi has abundant talented women footballers.

Surely, the two talented players have opened a window of opportunities for fellow Malawian players.


Some Skippers FC and DD Sunshine players have been linked with moves to European clubs next year following the exploits of Chawinga and Kazisonga.

It was a year worth remembering for the two players.

The former DD Sunshine attacker was in superb form in her second season in Sweden, playing for newly-promoted Swedish side, Kvarnsvedens IK.


It was a double dose of glory for Chawinga when she won the Golden Boot Award and inspired her side to earn Swedish top-flight league promotion.

It was yet another successful season for Chawinga as, in her debut season in 2014, she also won the Golden Boot Award while playing for third-tier side, Krokom/ Dvassatts.

In her debut season, Chawinga netted 38 goals to win the top goal scorer award despite joining the league while already in progress.

Then upon joining the new team, the 19-year-old attacker also took by storm the Elitettan Damer League (second-tier) when she won the Golden Boot Award with 43 goals.

She managed to surpass her 40-goal target in 2015 despite playing at the top level.

Chawinga opened the 2015 season with a hat-trick and she was once described by Kvarnsvedens officials as the “Shooting Queen”.

For winning the Golden Boot Award, the former DD Sunshine striker received a miniature and also featured in several television sports shows.

She is currently on three-month off-season break as the Sweden league resumes in March next year.
