THERE are now some rich pickings in Division One football.

In case you doubt that, ask Denver Mukamba.

The former Warriors skipper received a US$2 000 cash bonus for starting his career with ambitious Division One side, Scottland, with two goals on his debut.

That’s the average of a cool US$1 000 for every goal he scored in the 3-1 win over Trojan Mine.

“Denver is smiling all the way to bank after his explosive start to life in Division One,” said a source at Scottland.

“Remember Denver was now playing social soccer in the Harare Super League where he was getting a US$10 transport allowance for fulfilling the match.

“He said he was doing it just for his fitness sake as he contemplated his next move after his contract with DeMbare ended under a cloud of acrimony.

“But, even in his wildest dreams, Denver never thought that his start to life in Division One with his two goals and the rich pickings he received from his new club.

“Two thousand dollars isn’t the kind of money that even the best of the PSL earners get for winning a game, let alone scoring two goals.”

Mukamba, though, featured only a few minutes, before being withdrawn after suffering a muscle strain, in his team’s surprise 0-1 home loss to PAM at the Heart Stadium on Saturday.

The defeat saw Scottland, who have vowed to bring some of the best players in the country into their fold during the mid-season transfer window break, falling six points off the pace in the championship race.

The Mabvuku side, who play their matches at the stadium owned by their sister club Yadah, are on 12 points while leaders Harare City, who have won all their opening six games, are on 18 points.

City are six points clear of the chasing pack, which led by Lloyd Mutasa’s MWOS.

Mutasa’s men have the same number of points as Herentals Under-20 and Golden Eagles.
