Malawi national football team striker Stain Davie has enhanced his chances of securing a contract with a top Botswana football club, Township Rollers, by scoring a goal for the team in a pre-season tournament.

The former TN Stars hit man left the country with the blessings of his parent club Silver Strikers for Botswana to undergo trials at Township Rollers after impressing the team during the 2022 Council of Southern Africa Football Association (COSAFA) which took place in South Africa.

He was given a starting berth in a pre-season match against Super Stars United alongside Botswana international, Tlhalefo Molebatsi in a 4-4-2 system.

Defender Onkarabile Ratanang gave Rollers a half time lead with his goal after 34 minutes, but the Malawian forward added his name on scorers' list with a goal of his own midway in the second half before his striker partner, Molebatsi sealed the win with the third goal.

Dave will be hoping that his goal and performance at the weekend will persuade the Rollers’ hierarchy to offer him a professional contract.
