Last season 2nd division champion Fessell FC and the national team of Liberia the Lone Star are scheduled for a heated friendly today at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium in Monrovia. The newly promoted first Division side is expected to line-up its recording signing players for the evening showpiece.
Former Egyptian 2nd division outfit Ghazl Mahalla Liberian midfielder Nuzohn Kulala; relegation premiership delegation Tony FC’s former central back Bill Graford and Eddie Wulu bought from premiership champion LISCR FC are among top names expected to be in Fassell FC line-up.

BYC Signs Several Names
Premiership runners-up Barrack Young Controllers has reinforced their delegation for the coming season with the signing of six new legs. The Camp Johnson Road outfit secured the signature of Lone Star Central Back Teah Dennis of LPRC Oilers.
Last season 1st Division second goal netter Ghanefo Kromah was signed on by the Controllers from LISCR FC after completing a one season loan deal with first division side Zelor FC. Details released from the club president Sekou Konneh revealed that Barrack Young Controllers managed to land over Teku Nah from relegated premiership delegation Gedi & Sons FC.
Watanga FC’s forward Abraham Quayeteh is another leg that has joined the former Knock-Out champion for the coming season. According to Konneh, Momo Sompon is another leg that has rejoined the club after few seasons at National Port Authority Football.
Barrack Young Controllers are said to be moving on for the championship this season. “We finished 2nd last season and we are going for the premiership title this season”, vowed Konneh. Reports from the LFA say Barrack Young Controller papers work will be done ahead of time to avoid mistake from last season, according Mr. Bility.
Martin Kandu Fails Tryouts
Mighty Barrolle holding midfielder Martin Kandu has returned home from Norway and Sweden respectively where he has been honoring tryouts with several clubs through the negotiation of Monrovia FC CEO Wilhelm Myrer.
Martin Kandu departed Monrovia early last month along with Prince Somah and Kpah Sherman to honor tryouts in Norway, but Martin delayed in Liberia due to the slow process of getting Norwegian Visas from the local consulate in Monrovia, and had to travel to Nigeria for the visas.
The defensive midfielder was the last player of the delegation to arrive in Sweden because he was honoring a tryout in the northern part of Norway. He later arrived in Sweden and stopped over with Amadaiya Rennie his best friend.
According to plan, Kandu was to head straight to Eliasson Tore that was awaiting him to take in for his Swedish tryout, but Tore explained that Kandu listened to Amadaiya Rennie that introduced him (Martin Kandu) to the Nigerian agent called Okeke.
The Nigerian took him to DIK a Swedish outfit, but the club refused to sign the Liberian after they discovered the Nigerian was not the official agent or manager of the player. Martin was sent back to Liberia from Sweden on Friday due to what is referred to be disloyalty from the upcoming Liberian defensive midfielder.
