Changalume Barrack striker Davie Major is the early pacesetter for the 2022 FDH Bank Cup golden boot award as he leads the top goal scorers’ chart with three goals.
Major claimed a brace in Changalume’s 1-2 win away to Super League giants Karonga United in the round of 16 as well as a goal as his team eliminated another Super League side Mafco in the round of 32.
He is tied on three goals with Moyale Barracks midfielder Lloyd Njaliwa.
However, with Changalume still in the competition and Moyale eliminated, Major stands a chance to increase his goal tally.
Kamuzu Barracks’ Zeliati Nkhoma, Bullets duo of Babatunde Adepoju and Lanjesi Nkhoma have two goals each and in contention for the award as their teams are in the quarterfinals.
So far 24 matches have been played at National level producing 55 goals with Nyasa Big Bullets scoring the most, seven. Kamuzu Barracks are the only team yet to concede in the competition while the Nyasa Big Bullets versus Moyale match in the round of 16 which ended 4-4 in regulation time is the most scoring game so far.

On Sunday giants killers Nyasa Big Bullets Reserve will play Blue Eagles at the Kamuzu Stadium while Changalume Barracks will face Extreme at Balaka Stadium.
