Marvelous Nakamba’s tournament postponed

The tournament was initially scheduled to be hosted in Bulawayo back in May as scouts from Europe had landed to assess the home-grown talent but to no avail as all Sports activities were suspended with immediate effect as part of the measures to curb the Covid-19 pandemic.

Marvelous Nakamba Foundation Chairman Antony Nakamba says they have opted to postpone the much anticipated inaugural Under-17 tournament to next year. In an interview with H-Metro Sport yesterday, Antony Nakamba the chairman of the foundation said:

“We have been observing the direction of the wind. It is our desire to uplift the youths by any possible means but somehow we have seen it prudent to postpone the tournament to next year. I think things are starting to shape up well, Covid-19 will soon be an issue of the past. The pandemic has made our plans difficult to execute and it has also given us much room to improve on certain areas.

“We were once close to get the ball rolling then the next thing we were told to wait. It was beyond everyone’s control. We could not also afford to risk the boys. Their life is more precious. Our wish is to see to it that the tournament is played annually. “This platform which we are initiating should be a bridge of these youngsters.

Fast forward four years from now they should look back with a smile and perhaps chip in and assist us if they feel the need to. Our idea is to develop grassroots football,” said Nakamba. He, however, insisted that European scouts will retain.

“On that note, I can give you guarantee. Our primary concern is to get as many youngsters abroad. That is our main goal. If that can be achieved, it basically means the future of the national team will be bright in every sense. We need more players abroad,” he said.
