Civil Service Football Club has organised four-day trials from 13 to 20 October, to recruit new football players ahead of the Airtel Top 8 and the next TNM Super League season.
In an interview on Monday, Coach Joel Kachulu said the exercise is also meant to promote young footballers to beef up his squad
“The main aim of this trials is to recruit successful football players to beef up the squad and our focus is to win Airtel top 8,” Kachulu said.
He added that he hoped the trial will produce good players who will be selected to join the Lilongwe based super league outfit.
“So far we are expecting good performance from the selected players who will hit the final stage as they join other players who are preparing for Airtel top 8,” he added.
The coach also urged the players to focus on nurturing their talents.
In a separate interview, one of the trialists Tumeyo Kachingwe 20, from Lumbadzi, said he dreams of becoming a superstar footballer.
“Actually I was motivated by Gabadinho Mhango and Christian Ronaldo, my dream is to be a footballer and through this club I believe my skills and tactics will improve,” Kachingwe said.
He urged his fellow youthful players to avoid smoking and drinking alcohol saying such habits have the potential to ruin their football career.
