Yong sports Academy would be making their first Appearance in the South west, this Sunday 10, 2019 against Astres of Douala.
A soothsayer is not needed to sense that YOSA is a work in progress, and would be winning more silverware when the clubs’ project realizes, but the fans are quick in asking for glory.

A whopping number of 38 goals have been recorded in this encounter since 2009, and just in 3 occasions have they played without scoring.
YOSA began the season in a good footing against holders of the Cameroon cup Eding, but since then have stepped their foot off the gas pedal with performances fans describe as a barren, picking up 4 points out of a possible 15 points in their last 5, and sitting in a miserable 6 position.
Les Astres of Douala are the silent force, gradually pushing for places at the top, but they’re not under the spot lights like other club’s pushing for places at the top are. Astres have registered 2 wins, 2 draws, and a defeat, squeezing out 7 points off 15 in their previous 5, and sit 3.
This particular game could define the season of Yong sports, either for better or for worst, keeping in mind that the fans are already asking for the head (sack) of YOSA coach, Emmanuel Bosso if he doesn’t get the win in this against the Astres side he made a name for, a decade ago.
Les Astres seem happy at the moment, and they are exactly around where they would want to be; 1 point separates them from group leader, Stade Renard of Melong.
Players to watch
New recruit, Ashu Tambe is yet to open his account for the 2018/19 season, after ending fourth highest goal scorer last term. Speaking last time out to kick442.com, the goal-hunter was burnt on hard work, and believes the goals would start coming_Limbe could act as a great place to start.
Christian Dougoue of Astres is a star contrast, as the player seems to already be having a time of his life, with a goal scoring account already.
History of the club’s
Astre was created in 2002, two years before the birth of YOSA, and ‘the Brazilians of Bepanda’ are still to make a real marker in the top-flight.
Yong sports was created in 2004, and they won their maiden and only silverware up till this point, in 2013 against all odds.
The Limbe Omnisport stadium, Ngeme is the only stadium of CAF standards which international games can be played in the South west region.
The stadium is of a 20,000 thousands sitter capacity, and Les Astre would be more comfortable, as they have played games there this season already.
