Masters group of companies has announced the disbandment of Masters Security football club. This was after the team was relegated from the TNM super league last year and was to play in the central region football league which has resulted in many players leaving the club for top flight football.
Masters security became a household name in football circles in 2018 when it defeated Wanderers in the finals of the Calsberg cup and finished on fourth position in the TNM super league. The team also represented the country twice in the continental competition of the CAF confederations cup in 2018 and 2019.
In 2019 the team struggled financially as it failed to pay monthly wages to its players as well as fulfilling games in the super league which resulted in their relegation with two other central region teams, Dwangwa United and Mlatho Mponera.
Owner of the club Alfred Gangata has confirmed the development saying they have thought of not taking part in any football activity this season as they look for a possible comeback in the future.
“We are not doing any football related activities this year but maybe in the forth coming years but all I can say is the company has decided to disband the team meaning we are not playing in the central region chipuku stores football league which we were to play in,” said Gangata.
During it’s elite days, the Lilongwe based club popularly known as Migwanya produced a number of players which caught the eyes of Wanderers such as Francis Mkonda, Vincent Nyangulu, Juma Yatina, Nigerian striker Babatunde Adepoju and Ghanaian defender Eric Estigah.
