AFC Leopards will no longer be holding trials starting Monday 4 January; the exercise expected to end in the formation of a team for the 2016 season will now kick off a day later, on Tuesday 5 January.
The change has been confirmed by the club’s caretaker coach Ezekiel Akwana who also said the venue for the trials will shift from the Marist International College to Railways Training Institute starting at 9am.
From the trials, the coach intends to sign eight players for the 2016 season and he is optimistic it will all go well as he looks to confine the memories of the 2015 season to the past.
“We have had a few challenges and thus we have moved the trials from Monday 4th to Tuesday 5th but we will still have it until ninth of the month. The venue has also changed from Marist to Railways Training Institute.
“We want to form a formidable team and I hope all will go well. We want a total of 15 players at the end of the trials and after that we will go to residential camp to start preparing for the season,” he told 366football.com.
Akwana stuck with the team after the 2015 season when head coach Zdravko Logarusic decamped at the height of wrangles in the management and unpaid dues.
