KB became the first Malawi Defence Force (MDF) side to win the title and for their feat, they carted home K15 million champion’s prize.
They also went away with the most improved team accolade.
That was not all. KB were also rewarded with the best technical panel award—a fitting reward to coach Billy Phambala and his backroom staff who defied the odds to win the title after finishing on unenviable eighth position in the first round.
In the individual awards, their marksman Harvey Nkacha was named the best player of the season while midfielder Dave Banda was named the best midfielder.
The best goalkeeper award went to Bullets’ Ernest Kakhobwe while ex-Silver Strikers captain Lucky Malata was named the best defender.
Runners-up Nyasa Big Bullets got K7 million, third-placed Silver went away with K3.5 million whereas Blue Eagles got K3.5 million for finishing fourth.
Dwangwa United were voted the most disciplined team, whereas Blue Eagles had the most disciplined supporters.
KB chairperson Gift Njete described the season as fantastic.
“It really has been a successful season for us and we are glad that we dominated the awards this year. The players did put up 100 percent efforts and today we are here celebrating.
“We thank also the leadership, in particular the Commander General Griffin Supuni-Phiri. He loves sports and he has been the motivating factor,” said Njete.
He also vowed to defend the league.
“We will do everything to defend the league and make more history. We are not just sitting down but we will plan carefully for the next season,” said Njete.
Super League of Malawi (Sulom) president Innocent Bottoman also hailed KB, saying: “Kamuzu Barracks brought about unprecedented competition in the league. It really was an exciting they played with some attacking flair.”
