the young striker back to his team, Edusport.

talents in many of the soccer players.

‘feeder of player’ to FAZ, it was important that the association leads by example
for other provincial associations to emulate.

the only active provincial Association, it was only of importance that more amateur
teams in various districts in Lusaka province are reached.

mission of spreading football to the rural areas, “he said.
