Under-20 trials begin


Football Association of Malawi (Fam) will hold trials to select players for the Malawi Under-20 National Football team ahead of the Cosafa Championship in South Africa next month.

According to Fam Technical Director, John Kaputa, the day-long trials will be held at Mpira Stadium Blantyre, Zomba Community Centre, Nankhaka Stadium in Lilongwe and Mzuzu Stadium.

Fam, is therefore, calling upon all talented players, especially from the FMB Under-20 League and regional leagues, to attend the trials.


“The eligible players, to participate in the trials, must be born on or after January 1, 1998. The players will undergo screening before the trials. Interested participants are being asked to bring over their personal identities, including passports, birth certificates and school identification cards accompanied by a letter from the head teacher of their school,” Kaputa explained.

Under-20’s technical panel members will conduct the trials alongside regional youth coaches.

“The coaches will also scout for potential players at the FMB Under-20 regional finals on Saturday at Chiwembe Stadium, Dedza Stadium and Nkhata Bay Community Centre. We expect to select about 32 players who will then undergo further assessment at Mpira Village alongside eligible players from Super League teams,” Kaputa added.


Under-20 Head Coach, Gerald Phiri, will lead the team at Mpira Village alongside Trevor Kajawa, Leo Mpulula and Patrick Kulemeka.

Kaputa will be in Zomba with Tione Mhone, Prichard Mwansa, Moses Chimbetete, Griffin Saenda Jnr and James Sawerengera.

Fam Youth Development Officer, James Sangala, will lead the Central Region team together with Millias Pofera, Dave Moya, Thoko Chimbali and Dave Mpima while Enos Chatama will head North alongside Wakisa Mwambetania, Kondwani Ikwanga and Mwayi Mwanza.
