New entrants Mchengautuwa FC sit at the top of the Northern Region Simama Premier League with 19 points from 10 games played so far.
This is despite that the side was recently fined K25 000 ($50) and docked two points for causing game abandonment against Chilumba Barracks.
Chilumba Barracks are second with 18 points from eight games played.
On third position is Karonga United with 16 points from seven games played.
Kawalazi is at the bottom with a single point from five games played.
According to Mchengautuwa coach Madalitso Mhone, they are looking forward to taking the championship of Simama League this year.
He said the team will do everything required to be promoted to the Super League.
Eighteen teams are participating in this year’s Simama League.
Northern Region Football Association (NRFA) acting chairperson Zuza Nyondo said he is looking forward to a better league this season.
