LUSAKA – PROMOTED MTN Premier Division League side, National Assembly FC have extend coach George Kapembwa’s contract.
Kapembwa guided Assembly back to the top flight in just one season following their demotion in 2012. The Assembly coach has been in charge at Assembly since late 2012 following the departure of Mohamed Fathy.
“Kapembwa is a good coach whom we have decided to keep for continuity sake,” Assembly chairman Brian Mukumbwa said.
“We also believe in him and we have no doubt that he will perform.”
The Lusaka-based club has also extended the contracts of Kapembwa’s assistants Yusuf Lomu and Antonell Changwe. Kapambwe oversaw a gruelling promotion battle for Assembly in the 2013 season in Faz Division One North.
Assembly was then forced to play all its 17 away games 400 kilometers away on the Copperbelt after they were shunted to Division One North after two slots in their regional zone were filled by two other demoted Faz Division One South teams.
The Parliamentarian side finished top of Division One North on 68 points, two more than Indeni who will join them in the Super League next season.
Meanwhile this will be Assembly’s fourth return to Premiership football since making their top flight debut in 2003 and later relegated in 2007 before making brief appearances in the 2010 and 2012 seasons. – Supersport.com
