Coronavirus disrupts plans of newly-created U15 Girls team

The national U15 Girls team, the Damsels, has been created by the Kurt Okraku administration to unearth talents for the various women national teams.

But the plans of the technical team headed by Joyce Boateng-Agyei have been disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic.

“The national U-15 is a newly created side and the technical team planned nationwide scouting which was approved by the management committee. As we were waiting for the final approval from the GFA to take off with the scouting, the second phase of the U-I5 girls aside football program is ongoing in Prampram.”

Camping, scheduled for in April, had to be postponed after the first set of players were selected by the technical handlers.

”We selected 38 players to form the nucleus of the team and the plan was that camping begins during the April vacation,” Boateng-Agyei added.

”Then after, the technical team will travel across the country to organize justifying competitions to select more players. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 outbreak and lockdown did not allow us to start our program.

“Currently, the technical staff and management team have kept our fingers crossed waiting for when conditions will be safe for us to get our girls ready for camping.

”We, however, still need to embark on a scouting tour for selection of more players from across the nation after which they will be put in groups for effective grooming in Prampram or an appropriate venue earmarked by the authorities.”
