BUFFALOES GRAB CHARITY SHIELD - Tuesday, March 09, 2010
GBFC 1-0 Zesco United
Nkoloma Stadium.

Lineker Mwikisa scored early at the start of the first half of extra time to hand Green Buffaloes FC their first silverware in over 5 years as the new look squad under Aggrey Chiyangi showed great promise for the coming season.

After a deadlocked 90 minutes, the army side translated their long dominance as Mwikisa finished off a brilliant move from enterprising Kennedy Chola to deny the CAF confederations Cup envoys the opportunity to grab the first silver of the new season.

Opposite coaches Chiyangi commended his ‘soldiers’ for their gallant fight saying the victory signalled GBFC’s intention for the rest of the season while Zesco mentor Fighton Simukonda said the team had picked up valuable lessons ahead of their crunch league opener against Zanaco and the continental engagement against Warri Wolves of Nigeria in a fortnight.
