Warriors won their first league title in 1968 on goal difference after Ndola United, who was leading the table entering the final round, lost 2-1 on the last day of the season.
Zambian football great Godfrey Chitalu played for the club between 1971 and 1982. In 1972 he scored 107 goals in all competitions for club and country; more than Lionel Messi’s officially recognized record set in 2012.
