Lilongwe and Districts Football League (LDFL) has given Salima Town Hammers chance to defend their place in Chipiku League Premiership.
The Salima-based team was relegated to Division One after finishing on position 18 in the 20-member league in the 2012/2013 season.
The Hammers were promoted to the Premier Division five years ago alongside Mponela United, formerly Adams FC.
According to LDFL fixtures secretary Edman Msokera, Kamuzu Barracks’ survival in the TNM Super League prompted the move.
“Kamuzu Barracks have created chance for Salima Town Hammers to defend their position. They will play play-offs with Kasungu Medicals who finished fourth in Division One,” said Msokera.
If Kasungu Medicals win, they will join Namitete Young Rangers, Hardknockers and Dedza Strikers in the Premiership.
Rangers, Knockers and Strikers Division One season with 87, 84 and 82 points in Division One respectively.
Hungry Lions, St Kaduya and Balang’ombe Real Bombers have been promoted to Division One from Division Two.
They have replaced Mitundu United, Malembo Medicals and Mbuna United who have been relegated from Division One.
