“We’re done with our Copperbelt camp, I am very pleased with the overall performance of the team. We did not start well against Forest in a 2-all draw in Ndola, but went on to improve in our next two matches. We performed very well in the friendly against Wanderers and more especially against Buildcon,” Chilufya

“The team is jellying well, with several standout performers like Golden Mafwenta the young centre back from Young Zanaco was impressive against Buildcon after being given a chance to play in absence of Zanaco FC experienced central defenders who were rested.

He said the team will continue trying out different combinations in defence, midfield and upfront till they play the first competitive match.

“The team had played three matches with Super Division teams during their 5 days pre-season training camp on the Copperbelt. A 2-all draw in the first match against Forest in Ndola, then we claimed a 2-1 win over Mufulira Wanderers at Shinde on Saturday afternoon. Monday was the final day of the Copperbelt pre-season residential camp where we managed to beat Buildcon FC 1-nil with the only goal of the match coming from Taonga Bwembya and the team returned to Lusaka immediately after the match to continue with preparations for the 2019/20 season,” he said
