Coach for Blue Eagles Decklerk Msekakuona said the new players have the potential of helping the club achieve it’s goals in the coming season. “We have seen the potential in these players that’s why we have given them a chance to be part of us and we feel their coming in will be of great help to the club as we have set targets for ourselves, which is not just to participate in tournaments but to compete”
“We didn’t want to mostly go for players who ready have made names but we have opted for these young stars to be given a chance to make names for themselves “, said Msakakuona.
