In an interview after the game, Byron "Ribexy" Chireshe expressed their teams' commitment to fight drug and substance abuse through sport, and promised that since they are in their last quarter of the year, it is during the festive seasons that spike in drug and substance abuse become rife.

" We are intensifying our fight against drug and substance abuse as the youths, and our target is the enrollment of several matches for interaction and engagement with both victims and suspected traffickers, so that they understand all detrimental effects of drugs against the development of our economically active demographic groups in communities," Chireshe said.

"With Vigilance FC, we are not opponents, but rather fighting the same cause of drug and substance abuse. We are only left with a month and few days towards Christmas and that is where spike in drugs and substance uptake spikes, hence it is our duty as part of communities to campaign against such socio-economic and cultural ills which have retarded progress of our localities, " Chireshe close remarks.
