Phiri warns promoted teams



Four teams have been promoted to the Castle Lager League PSL to replace the four which were relegated at the end of the season.

The four promoted teams are Black Rhinos, who have played in the elite league before, Triple B, How Mine and Triangle.

PSL Chairman Twine Phiri told the teams that playing in the top-flight is not an easy task and that they should be prepared to fight hard to stay in the top league. Phiri, who is also a director at CAPS United, told the four teams that they expect them to come to the PSL and compete, and not just to play one season and go back to Division One.

“This is a big step in your football careers as teams. This is a big achievement as now you are playing in the highest league in the country,” he said.

“We wish you all the best, but you should know that it requires extra hard work to be here and stay. You have to use all the resources you have to make sure you compete with the other teams in the PSL.

“Celebrations for being promoted should stop now and start to prepare for the battle ahead,” Phiri concluded.
