Musonda Kapembwa (Muzo): The Prolific Scorer
Leading the charge for Napsa Stars once again, Musonda Kapembwa, affectionately known as Muzo, has demonstrated his prowess as the team’s top scorer for a second consecutive season. Muzo’s ability to find the back of the net consistently has been crucial in Napsa Stars’ success.
With an impressive tally of 10 goals in the 2022/23 season, Muzo has showcased his clinical finishing skills and the ability to rise to the occasion when his team needed him most. His contribution to the team’s attacking front cannot be overstated, as his goals often proved to be the difference in crucial matches.
Not only has Muzo been a goal-scoring machine, but he has also been an integral part of the team’s overall play. Accumulating more than 1800 minutes of playtime, Muzo has exhibited remarkable endurance and commitment to the team’s cause. His consistent presence on the field has undoubtedly played a significant role in Napsa Stars’ performance throughout the season.
Apart from his goal-scoring exploits, Muzo has also provided a valuable assist to his teammates, showcasing his ability to contribute beyond finding the net. Additionally, it is worth noting that Muzo has maintained discipline on the field, receiving only three yellow cards and no red card throughout the season.
Gift Zulu: The Ever-Present Midfield Dynamo
In a season filled with ups and downs, Gift Zulu has been a consistent force in Napsa Stars’ midfield. Zulu’s unwavering dedication and reliability have made him an indispensable asset to the team.
A remarkable feat for any player, Zulu featured in all 34 matches for Napsa Stars, missing out on just a single substitution. His commitment to the team’s cause is evident from the staggering 3055 minutes he played out of a possible 3060 minutes. Zulu’s ability to maintain a high level of performance throughout the season is commendable and reflects his exceptional work ethic.
As a midfielder, Zulu’s contributions extend beyond endurance and consistency. While not primarily known for his goal-scoring ability, Zulu showcased his versatility by providing two valuable assists for his teammates. His vision and passing accuracy have been crucial in creating goal-scoring opportunities for Napsa Stars.
Despite his relentless efforts, Zulu has also had to navigate the fine line between aggression and discipline in the midfield. Accumulating six yellow cards over the season indicates his commitment to winning back possession for the team, although he will need to remain mindful of maintaining control during intense encounters.
The 2022/23 season was a memorable one for Napsa Stars Football Club, and the performances of Musonda Kapembwa (Muzo) and Gift Zulu have been instrumental in the team’s success. Muzo’s prolific goal-scoring ability and endurance, coupled with Zulu’s consistency and midfield mastery, have set them apart as deserving recipients of the Napsa Stars’ Season Performance Awards.
