Inside Bullets this week

Share

This week’s Bullets diary looks really exciting. An action-packed weekend is loading as three of our teams have fixtures lined up in their respective tiers.

After reaching the Round of 16 in the FDH Bank Cup, Kalisto Pasuwa’s first team switches focus to the TNM Super League.

As our reserves will be wrapping up the first round of the ThumbsUp Southern Region Football League, the Under-19s are set to kick-start their journey in the FCB Youth Championship.

Our women’s team are the only side with no action as they wait for the new FAM Women’s Football Southern Region League, set to roll next month.

Here’s how our football diary looks this week.

First Team

Straight from our emphatic 5-0 demolition of Bangwe All Stars in the FDH Bank Cup Round 32 at Kamuzu Stadium at the weekend, we return to the same venue with another important fixture against Civil Service United in the TNM Super League on Sunday.

The defending champions, who are 13 points behind Silver Strikers in the title race, will go for all the points as they seek to narrow the gap and move up the ladder from the current unfamiliar fifth position in the standings.

Civil Service United have always given us a tough run regardless of where we are meeting, but going by how the team fared against Bangwe in the FDH Bank Cup, registering our biggest goal margin this season, there is a sigh of relief and positive vibes in Kalisto Pasuwa’s camp.

It’s a match that Bullets need to go for all the points if we are to keep our title hopes alive following a difficult start to the 2024 season, winning only three games, registering seven draws and one defeat in 11 league matches.

However, we will be welcoming a side that will also be looking for a win after losing three points in the Lilongwe derby against Silver Strikers a fortnight ago.

Despite their recent defeat in the league, Civil will be travelling to Blantyre coming from a 5-1 triumph over Chihame All Stars to progress into the Last 16 stage of the FDH Bank Cup.

Reserves 

The Blantyre mini-derby awaits our Team B as they play Mighty Wanderers Reserves in the final match of their Group B first-round campaign in the Thumbs-Up Southern Region Football League at a venue yet to be announced by the Southern Region Football Association.

Enos Chatama’s boys, who are second in the table with 17 points from 10 games, are coming from a goalless draw against group leaders Ekhaya United last Thursday.

The young Nomads will be looking to bounce back from their 1-0 defeat at the hands of Dowa Hammers away in Mponela to exit the Champion Cup on Sunday.

It promises to be a very lively encounter between the young neighbours, setting the pace for their big brothers who are scheduled to face off in the second Blantyre derby of the season, this time in the FDH Bank Cup Round of 16 following their 1-1 stalemate in the TNM Super League in May.

Under-19s

Our youth side will kick start their FCB Under-19 Championship against Yizo Yizo Warriors at Kamuzu Stadium on Sunday morning, a game that will curtain raise the first team’s TNM Super League match against Civil Service United.

The young Bullets will be looking to start their campaign on a high as they hope to win the competition for the first time.

Our Under-19s go into the new season buoyed by their Africa Herbal Mixture Cup success which they defended after beating Manchester Motor Spares in May.

Women

Maggie Chombo’s ladies, who have been training for the last three months, continue fine-tuning for the FAM Women’s Football Southern Region League slated to start next month.

Good luck to all our teams in their respective competitions!
