Sulom introduces monthly coach award


Super League of Malawi (Sulom) has announced plans to introduce Coach of the Month Award in the forthcoming 2018 TNM Super League season.

The top-flight league governing body’s treasurer Tiya Somba-Banda has also announced the revival of the Man-of-the-Match awards.

Last season, there were no man-of-the-match awards and the development is likely to cause excitement among players.

Somba-Banda: Details will be unveiled before kick off

“Man-of-the-Match Award is not included in the TNM plc sponsorship contract; hence, it was difficult for TNM to continue financing it.

“However, for next [2018] season, we will be working with other partners to finance the awards, including the Coach of the Month Award.

“The details and packages will be unveiled before kick-off,” he said.

Veteran midfielder Joseph Kamwendo, who was 2018 Player of the Season, described the revival of Man-of-the-Match Award as encouraging.

“It is a good development for the game because it motivates the players to give out something extra,” he said.
