Kalomo target Super Division

BENEDICT TEMBO, Kalomo
LONG time strugglers in FAZ Division One (south) Kalomo Jetters are now confident of making their dream appearance in the Super Division – thanks to the restructuring of the league which has pitted them with less experienced sides.
The Kalomo District Council-sponsored side will from this season start campaigning in FAZ Division One south-west along with Livingstone Pirates as the most experienced teams in Division One.
Jetters club secretary Edgar Mulenga said experience should help his club alongside Pirates to qualify to FAZ Super Division from the south-west zone.
“Only Jetters and Pirates survived [from FAZ Division One south], the rest were promoted from Division Two,” Mulenga said.
However, Jetters will be up against Zesco Shockers of Mongu and Kaoma-based Luena Buffaloes who are also seasoned campaigners in the first division.
Teams promoted to Division One following the restructuring of the league are AM Welding, Mazabuka United, Kascol Rangers, Monze Swallows, Sinazongwe, Zesco Victoria Falls, Senanga Leopards, Senanga Warriors, Limulunga and Antonio while Buidcom from North-Western are expected to be replaced by Kafue-based Young Green Eagles.
Jetters are relieved that the restructured league has shortened their travel distance from Chipata in the Eastern Province which was the furthest to Kaoma in the Western Province.
Jetters who finished eight on the Division One (south) log last season, are coached by Kennedy Himoonga, a council employee nick-named Mourinho because he never played competitive football.
The team’s campaign for top flight soccer has been boosted by the construction of a wall fence around their stadium called for Mabu (traditional reed mat) which covered the structure.
