Various fourth and third division soccer clubs in Bong County are awaiting the settlement of a few issues before the commencement of the local actions. The chairman of Liberia Football Association in Bong County, Joseph G. Fredrick told the New Dawn last Monday that the league will kick off early next month.
According to him, the overdue 3rd and 4th division leagues could not commence because of the delays in the coaches’ workshop yet to be conducted by the LFA.
According to the Mr. Fredrick, soccer in the county is beginning to improve, with high interest among residents. Currently, there are more than 15 teams in both divisions, some of which have and continue to provide players for the county soccer teams competing in the national county meet.
Fredrick also thanked the FA President Musa Bility for the provision of transportation (Motorbike) to his office. According to him, the bike has enabled him to travel to towns and villages around the county, with the aim of engaging the youth to increase time for soccer, as a way of rebuilding their lives.
Meanwhile, the head coach of the Bong County football team is determined to be triumphant in this year’s national county meet. Coach Cooper has come under huge pressure from citizens of the county to deliver this time, after finishing 3rd place early this year.
The county has already dropped more than ten players from the football team, bringing on board 12 new players from the county and outside. The county authority has also made changes within the administrative arm of the county sporting department.
