Chilumba roped in, To sit in for banned Mutapa
Kabwe Warriors coach Tenant Chilumba has joined the Under-17 technical bench ahead of the 2018 Cosafa Castle Cup championship.
Chilumba will be on the bench in the absence of head coach Oswald Mutapa who is still seeing out his ban by Cosafa that ends in August.
Mutapa was handed a two year ban by COSAFA back in 2016 after a age cheating scandal involving the same age group tournament.
Zambia who were drawn in group B will kick-off their title defence on July 19 against Mozambique and later play Lesotho on July 22 before closing their Group B campaign against South Africa on July 24.
The tournament will act as regional qualifier for the 2019 U17 AFCON that will be hosted by Tanzania. The winner will automatically qualify to the AFCON tournament.
