Tafic striker Tendai Nyamadzawo’s astonishing five goal jackpot against Orapa United not only earned him a place in Premier League history it also netted him P500 as the Capital Bank Man of the Match.
Kicking off the newly introduced award in spectacular style, Tendai received the cash from Capital Bank’s Francistown branch manager Jay Balule – himself an avid Tafic fan.
The bank has agreed an initial P2000 sponsorship to cover Man of the Match awards over the club’s next four games.
The lanky Zimbabwean who is built in the mould of England’s Peter Crouch, was making his fifth appearance for the club and by his own admission has hardly had a shot on target in that time.
Making up for lost time he described his five-goal haul as “dream like” a sentiment Tafic fans will have shared as their struggling team hit Orapa United for six last Saturday.
Tendai has since decided to share the prize money with his teammates because as he explained: “I was not playing alone.
I am surrounded by good players and they are the reason I scored five goals.”
He dedicated his award to the “loyal Tafic supporters who have stood with us in all difficulties.”
