REHOBOTH, 10 APR (NAMPA) - The ||Kharas Region has announced its Under-20 football squad for The Namibian Newspaper Cup next weekend.
The tournament will take place at Mariental from 19 to 22 April and will see all 14 regions compete in what is the biggest youth tournament. Last year, the womens Under-20 netball tournament was introduced to run concurrently with the football matches.
Regional Secretary, Emrico Blaauw said the team was selected on Saturday after the final trials were held in Keetmanshoop.
We had our trials last weekend and went into camp immediately. The team will have two sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.
Blaauw said with the players at their disposal, he believes they can go all the way.
He noted that if all works out as planned, they see no reason why the cup cannot go to the //Kharas Region.
We would really love to have the elusive Newspaper Cup in our backyard for the first time. Its long overdue and now is as good a time as any to make sure we win it, he said.
