Kimbe Cutters holds first selection trials

first_imgBY GRACE FOSSINGKE DWU journalism student West New Britain’s franchise club, Kimbe Cutters for the 2019 Digicel Cup, has now trimmed its 67-man train-on squad to 36 after first selection trials at the weekend. This number is expected to be trimmed down to 30. Newly-appointed coach, Jessie Alunga said ongoing selections were done based on age, height, weight, discipline and basic skills. Alunga said the boys went under intensive training for 12 weeks with the elimination taking course since July when the local level government games began. He said the players are fit but need further training to fully meet the semi-professional games standard. Invitations have been sent to Goroka Lahanis, Waghi Tumbe and Rabaul Agmark Gurias for trial matches to determine the combination and the make-up for the final squad. Cutters team manager Freddie Kumai said the matches are expected to be held between January and March next year. Alunga said the team was not intending to recruit at this stage but may do so after the final trials. They will basically be targeting experienced players to have a balance side that is needed to perform well and maintain results. The 36-man squad: Bob Willson, Jimmy Jason, Alex Rova, Oswald Gela, Timothy Pola, Jack Voku, Alois Luba Jr, Dominic Anis Jr, Sam Voku, Nevel Volu, Nick Smith, Terence Tausulu, Michael Kura, Joe Vovola, Francis Nasa, Enock Basio, Damien Paul, Irenius Malaniu, Martin Xavior, Tony Vorot, Steven Bruno, Leni Kitaun, Simon Johnson, Hubert Vitolo, Frederick Romagio, Theodore Gavuri, Anthony Longa, Emmanuel Depit, Jonathan Oki, Ben Misili, Esron Panga, Darius Wartoto, Alvin Tom, Donald Valuka, Danny Gorea and Lynold Molpoio.last_img read more

The meeting is tonight at the Bulgarian Army Stadium from 9 p.m. You can watch the match live on DIEMA SPORT, as well as online on PLAY DIEMA XTRA. In Gong.bg we will traditionally follow the development of the meeting minute by minute.The main referee of the match is Petar Kostadinov.During the week, both teams had commitments in the first preliminary round of the Europa League. The Reds, although difficult, defeated the unpretentious Maltese Cyrene in Sofia with 2: 1. The Reds had to make a complete turnaround against the absolute debutant in Europe to seal their visas for the second round of the Europa League.At the same time, Slavia continued its hesitant performance and lost to Albanian Kukesi in Albania, saying goodbye early to its ambitions for Europe.Definitely things are not going well in the team of the “whites”, and there is even talk of a coaching change. Slavia does not know the taste of victory in the first three rounds of efbet League and occupies the penultimate place in the standings with an asset of only one point.CSKA players also get on the nerves of their fans with their game. The Reds do not shine at all with their game under the leadership of Stamen Belchev, who admitted after the difficult victory in Europe that the fans of the team do not deserve to watch such a performance.In the standings, CSKA is fifth with an asset of seven points. After yesterday’s matches, the leader in the table is the champion Ludogorets, who overtook Beroe.HERE ARE THE COMPOSITIONS OF BOTH TEAMS:CSKA: Gustavo Busato – Ivan Turitsov, Plamen Galabov, Jurgen Matei, Bradley Maziku, Valentin Antov, Yunus Sankare, Georgi Yomov, Rafael Enrique, Ahmed Ahmedov, Ali SowCoach: Stamen BelchevSLAVIA: Antonis Stergiakis – Ertan Tombak, Andrea Hristov, Emil Viyachki, Radoslav Terziev, Milen Gamakov, Yanis Karabelov, Filip Krastev, Emil Stoev, Ivaylo Dimitrov, Kaloyan KrastevCoach: Zlatomir ZagorcicCh.
