Ex-Flames, Bullets goalie Trust Lunda no more

Trust Lunda Malawi ex goalkeeper

Grief has stricken the football family again following the demise of former Nyasa Big Bullets and Malawi national football teams goalkeeper, Trust Lunda.

Trust's cousin, Nkhoma Synod Radio's journalist, Bright Lunda posted on his Facebook page: "Rest well my cousin Trust Lunda. We have lost a star, heaven has gained."

Lunda will be laid to rest on Tuesday.

Trust has suffered from cancer for sometime which led to the amputation of his left leg.

Football lovers remember Trust as a number one goalkeeper during his hay time at Bullets and Flames.

He played for all the Malawi national teams starting with the under 17, 21 and 23 sides.

According to www.national-football-teams.com, Lunda's football career started at his home district of Nkhotakota in 1996 when he played for Nkhotakota Rangers, before he switched to Nkhotakota ADMARC the following year.

After a season there, he joined Nkhotakota Medicals and then DWASCO Nkhotakota in 1999 to 2003 where he established his goalkeeping career.

He was then spotted by Bakili Bullets then in 2004 and retired at Bullets in 2011.

He then went to South Africa for greener pastures.

Lunda was forced to return home looking for help for his medical condition and a number of football lovers reached out to him by contributing some funds to take him to hospital until the leg was amputated.
