Div One North Club Young Forest Sends SOS
Young Forest to the Faz Division One North League is giving us sleepless nights, says club Secretary Louis Musonda.
The Kasama-based Young Forest has made history by becoming the first team in Norther Province to play in Division One.
The Kasama side was formed in 2005 as a community team and competed in the district,provincial, Faz Division One,Two and Three leagues before winning promotion at the end of last season.
Musonda described his side’s promotion as a challenge because the team lacks sponsorship to enable the team fufil fixtures.
“We are just a community team and lacks sponsorship, so it will be a huge challenge for us to be travelling to Norther Western,Central and Copperbelt provinces to play games,” he said.
Musonda said his executive committee has written to a number of corporate entities in a bid to secure sponsorship for Young Forest.
“We are on our knees appealing to well-wishers to come to our aid. We need to sustain this team,” he added.
