“We have increased numbers from Tanji and Madiana and even newcomers from far way Youna,” town team coach Yaha Darboe revealed in a recent chat with The Standard. He said the increased number of players in the zone is good for the growth of football in the area.
“We have always wanted to use our zonal status to inspire and attract footballers to the town which helps in building and discovering talents,” he observed.
Last year, the Brufut zonal team could not negotiate their way from the group stages of the Super Nawettan unlike their maiden campaign when they reached the semi-finals. However the town team finished third in the West Coast Regional Football Championship.
The draw for programme was made Sunday with four groups of six teams lined with the top four from each group guaranteed a place in the second round. In order to avoid delays to the tournament ahead of the Super Nawettan, there will now be two matches a day with early kick-offs at 3pm.]]>
