From captaining the Flames to coaching giants such as Big Bullets and Silver Strikers, Meke Mwase has settled where football starts.
He is happy to groom talent at Tigers Reserve in the Peter Mutharika Southern Region Football League’s (SRFL) Premier Division.
“It is tough teaching youngsters football from scratch, you have to be patient. It is tough, but I am enjoying it,” Mwase said after seeing his side draw 1-1 against Nyasa United at Kamuzu Stadium on Sunday.
The soft-spoken mentor needed John Mwakasungula’s effort to earn a point against the veterans of Nyasa who had on Saturday defeated Changalume Barracks 2-1 at the same venue.
“Our target is more to groom players for Azam Tigers. Management made it clear that they would give priority to the reserves than buy. I am happy that so far, our team’s graduates such as Watson Mamu, Chimwemwe Tembo, Vivien Damalekani and Paul Chikalema have earned promotion to the senior team,” said Mwase.
Evirom FC are three points clear on top following their 2-2 draw with White Eagles in Blantyre. They have 44 points from 21 games ahead of Chikhwawa United who thumped White Bullets 3-1 in the Lower Shire.
