Almost all Super League teams have intensified preparations for next season slated to kick off on April 19 through build-up matches.
Big Bullets, who are on a campaign to regain their lost glory, continue to do well in the pre-season games.
Last Sunday, they gave rookies Chikwawa United a clue of what to expect in the flagship league with a 2-0 win.
Two former Bullets marksmen, Jimmy Zakazaka and Grant Lungu, took the fans down memory lane in the way they crafted the second goal that left the fans mesmerised.
It was a move that involved BB’s class of 2004 that qualified for the last eight of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Champions League.
Fischer Kondowe started it all when he fed the ball to Zakazaka, who in turn, found Lungu with a pass that oozed class and the Bullets ‘prodigal son’ complemented it to perfection with a shot that was deflected into the net by a Chikwawa defender.
This was after enterprising winger DalitsoSailesi had given the People’s Team a 15th minute lead when he dinked home Fischer’s beautiful cross.
Zakazaka is in the country awaiting results of his further medical tests to determine injury claims made by his Mozambican club, Costa Dol Sol, whereas Lungu is on trials with the hope of starting a new lease of life in the red side of Blantyre.
Despite the loss, the rookies, who are under the tutelage of former BB mentor Gerald Phiri Snr, were confident on the ball and attacked with flair and fervour at times, but were clearly betrayed by lack of experience.
Bullets team manager Fundi Akidu said they are happy with how the new players are adapting.
“Hopefully in the next two weeks or so, the coaches should come up the team for next season,” said Akidu.
