Jesse Were grabs a brace for Zesco in pre-season friendly

Kenyan international striker, Jesse Were, has resumed his scoring ways for the Zambia club Zesco United ahead of the 2017 season.

On Wednesday, Were scored twice in his side’s 3-1 win over Kabwe Warriors in a pre-season friendly match at the Godfrey Chitalu Stadium.

Jackson Mwanza scored Zesco’s other goal to seal victory in what has been a perfect pre-season for the club’s new Serbian coach Zlatko Krmpotic.


Krmpotic, who officially took over from George Lwandamina at the start of 2017, also registered victory over South African club Highlanders Park in another friendly match.

Were alongside and his compatriots, Anthony Akumu and defender David ‘Calabar’ Owino, are expected to feature prominently for Zesco as ‘Team Ya Ziko’ bid to reclaim the league title from Zanaco.

Were had a great first season in Zambia, finishing top of the goal scoring charts for his club with 22 goals and second overall in the league.

With the Zambian league season due to commence this month, Were is certainly targeting to continue with his impressive scoring streak.
