All is set as Lilongwe giants Silver Strikers will on Saturday, 30 December lock horns with Blantyre based powerhouse Nyasa Big Bullets at the iconic Bingu National Stadium, courtesy of Plan International Malawi.
Dubbed “Advocacy match”, the game has been organized with the aim of stopping child marriages and keep girls in school.
Speaking to Newsline, Nyasa Big Bullets Captain John Lanjesi said the team is honored to be associated with the good cause, saying child marriages have greatly affected children’s future in the country.
“Malawians love football. Nyasa Big Bullets being the people’s team has a huge following and Silver Strikers have fans too. This match will help spread the message,” Lanjesi said.
He then said the People’s Team wants to wrap up 2017 on a good note by beating the Bankers who have proven to be a tough competitor in the just ended TNM Super League.
However, Silver Strikers Skipper Blessings Tembo has dismissed Lanjesi’s comments, saying Silver Strikers will carry the day.
“All preparations are done and come match day we are beating Bullets,” Tembo challenged.
Nyasa Big Bullets finished second while Silver Strikers came third in the top flight 2017 TNM Super League.
