Kutlwano aim to kick-on after promising start

Kutlwano last won the league title in 2015, when they managed to grab a double, emerging triumphant in both men and women’s sections.

Mmegi Online :: Kutlwano aim to kick-on after promising start








But their fortunes could change this season after a promising start to the first round, as the Mascom Volleyball League action resumes this weekend. Their intention is to recreate the 2015 feat. The men’s team finished the first round in position three, just three points behind the leading teams, Police XI and BDF XI. Kutlwano have 29 points while Police and BDF are tied on 31 points.

The women’s team has 20 points, trailing log leaders, Mafolofolo by six points who have 27. Kutlwano spokesperson, Tjiyapo Madeluka said both teams have had a good run thus far. “We have qualified for Zone VI to be held in December. The teams stand a good chance of winning the league,” he said.

Madeluka said both sides played the first round with skeletal squads, but they have begun to rectify that by making new signings. Given Chilinda has joined The Big House from Desert Kings while Tiroyaone ‘Tyro’ Otimile has retraced his steps

back to Kutlwano after a short spell at Police.

“I requested Tyro to come back home. We needed his services.

We are also targeting other players,” he said. Madeluka said Kutlwano were financially challenged in the first round due to the absence of the league last year. He said they pulled through due to assistance from their sponsor, Exclusive Solutions and certain individuals.

Madeluka is not happy with the league’s fixtures. “We lost two games due to poor fixtures. The first game, we played five sets against Kalavango and four hours later we played four sets against BDF.

That is an impossible task because you cannot play those two sides the same day,” he said.

He said the same situation played out when they met Police on a Sunday, hours after playing Itekeng first on a Saturday. Police are the defending champions.

“We just hope the Federation would come up with a better fixture programme in the second round,” Madeluka said.
