LYFA 0 – 0 Maramba Stars FC
Livingstone Youth Football Academy Senior A team fought hard for a draw in yesterdays pre-season friendly against Maramba Stars FC.
The senior boys coach, Phillip Tembo, says he was not at all disappointed with the result given that Maramba Stars FC are a Division 1 team. He further explained, “A result like this before the start of the season shows the state of readiness the boys are in. If we can produce quality football like this against a Division 1 team, we should be comfortable in division 2 this season.”
Possession throughout the game was fairly equal with both teams securing 6 shots on target in the 90 minutes. Defensively LYFA produced some good blocks and seemed very solid with the back 4 players who maintained a good defensive line throughout the game.
The FAZ has yet to announce the first game of the season but it is thought to be in the next couple of weeks. In the meantime, the boys will continue to train hard in preparation for their first season in Division 2.
