Dedza Young Soccer, who were recently relegated from the TNM Super League, are finding the going tough in the Chipiku Central Region Football Association (CRFA) Premier League where they are fourth from the bottom of the log table.
Dedza are yet to win in the 21-team league in which they have a point, having registered a loss and a draw. On Sunday, they drew 0-0 against Balang’ombe Real Bombers. The previous week, they lost 0-1 to Mchinji Boma Stars.
Civo Reserves have maintained the grip at the top of the league following their 1-0 victory over Dowa United at the weekend.
“I am delighted with the good start and I am hoping that we will keep up the momentum,” said Reserves coach Noel ‘Amfumu’ Mkandawire.
Chisomo Hiwa scored the lone goal of the match that took the Civil Servants’ reserve side’s tally to 12 points, having won four and lost one.
Mbavi United are trailing them with nine points also from five games. Mbavi beat Msundwe United 1-0 on Saturday.
Mchinji, who drew 1-1 with Namitete Young Rangers on Saturday, are on third position with seven points from four games while Msundwe are fourth with six points from three games.
Anchoring the table are Ndawula United with no point from three games while last seasons’s runners-up Airborne Rangers, are yet to kick-start their campaign.
Tiyuni United who recently rebranded from Maicc FC, started their campaign on a high note when they beat Balang’ombe 4-1 at Nankhaka Stadium on Saturday. They are 10th on the log table. n
