Share this article

Dear Editor,

Kabwe Warriors escalated to second in stream-A of the MTN/FAZ Super League table in which they stunned Mighty Mufulira Wanderers 1-0 in a week seven fixture played on Saturday  at Shinde Stadium in Mufulira.

A lone first half goal from Emmanuel Okuto was enough to hand Warriors their second consecutive win which escalated Tenant Chilumba’s boys to 13-points, a point behind stream A leaders Zanaco who were held 1-1 by rejuvenated Green Buffaloes.

They play their home games at Godfrey ‘Ucar’ Chitalu 107 Stadium in Kabwe.

They are the second most successful club in Zambia in terms of trophies won, only behind Mufulira Wanderers, but have won the league title five times since 1987.

The club was founded as Broken Hill United but changed their name to Kabwe Warriors in 1966.

Warriors won their first league title in 1968 on goal difference after Ndola United, who was leading the table entering the final round, lost 2-1 on the last day of the season.

Zambian football great Godfrey Chitalu played for the club between 1971 and 1982. In 1972 he scored 107 goals in all competitions for the club and country.

In the 2013/14 season, Kabwe Warriors was relegated, but the club returned to the top flight after a one-year absence, winning promotion with five games left to play in the Division One North.

So keep up the spirit Kabwe Warriors.
