The Yendi Municipal Football Association will on this weekends supervise the commencement of the Juvenile League which is expected to begin today Saturday 15, 2021 at two game centers.
The DFAs have been tasked to organized and supervise the Juvenile League to unearthed talents at various developmental stages, from U-13, U-15 and U-17.
The Yendi Municipal Football Association is very worried about the inability of the Municipality to produce players of national teams, and has therefore turned much of their focus on developing grassroot football, which they believed can help unearthed hidden talents in the area.
The U-15 will play their matches at the Naa-Yakuba JHS Park this weekend whiles the U-17 games will be held at the Dagbon State School Park every weekend’s.
It will be worth noting that the U-15 and U-13 matches shall be played interchangeable week-in-week-out as a result of insufficient fields to host the matches.
In this regard, the U-13 shall on next week commence their matches at the Na-Yakuba JHS Park which will be used by the U-15 team this week.
But for the U-17 side, their matches shall be played on every weekend at the Dagbon State School Park.
The National U-17 Technical team shall be going round to select players from the teams to form the National U-17 team. There shall also be Regional U-17 Championship for Champions from each District, hence the need to allow them play each and every weekend even with the limited fields in the municipality.
There are currently an ongoing construction of two sports Complexes in Yendi, but none of them will be ready to host the Juvenile games and that of the Division Two League matches as there are still much work to be done.
Juvenile football in Northern Region has brought many talented footballers to the sporting limelight, notably among them are, Mubarak Wakaso, Abdul Majeed Waris, Mohammed Gargo, Hamza Mohammed, Baba Abdul Rahaman and quite recently Abdul Fataw Issahaku.
