As lovers of football continue to voice the need for a modern football facility in the Northwest Region of Cameroon, the management of the Yong Sports Academy of Bamenda has decided to make a big move.
Kick442.com has exclusively gathered that the management of the above-mentioned Club has contracted a firm which specializes in pitch construction for a full overhaul of the shape of the Mile Six Stadium in Nkwen.
This Pan-African Sports News Agency understands the construction entity executing its function through locals is through with softening of the soil and laying the rich-black soil on the pitch.
We understand they have started with the planting of the special, “carpet” grass which is expected to take enough roots in a month’s time.
Our findings have it that, the YOSA management led by President Yong Jacques will to use a lawnmower to ensure the pitch takes the desired shape.
We also gathered that the Club’s management has objective to have the pitch ready by the start of next season, hoping football resumes by October.
In addition, we are reliably informed that the renovation works will include greater attention on the auxiliary pitch adjacent to the main Stands and the Club plans to use that pitch as its training facility when preseason activities resume while the main pitch fallows into its desired shape for the next season.
On a mission to gather more about this long-awaited project, Kick442.com made unsuccessful efforts to get the Club’s president to throw more lights on the project but we gathered that they plan to have a modern Stands in the other end of the main pitch. In addition, they will renovate the Changing rooms to meet standards.
If all goes as planned, the Northwest Region of Cameroon will have an attractive football facility at last, though that wouldn’t quench the people’s need for a government planted befitting football Stadium in the region for the people of the region.
YOSA is one of the most respected Clubs in Cameroon.
Created in 2004 by great Bobe Francis now of late, YOSA graduated into the top-flight Championship in Cameroon in 2009.
They are fresh from a 6th-placed finish in the Elite One championship, the 2013 Cup of Cameroon winners are currently one of just three Clubs with 10 consecutive seasons in the Cameroon top-flight Championship without relegation.
Cotonsport and Union Sportive of Douala are two big guns in the competition with a similar record and better title success.
Though both clubs are older than YOSA, this recent move may just be the first step towards a better success story for the boys of coach Martin Nkabyo.
