Newly promoted Cameroon League one side Bamboutos FC of Mbouda is one of the clubs that have the potentials to challenge the usual title contenders in the 2019/2020 Cameroon League one championship.

The “Mangwa boys” as they are funly have had a very busy build up to the season overhauling the squad that masterminded promotion just a year after they were demoted.

The squad change has not been the only positive around the club, the administrative arm has been adjusted with the introduction of more “football people” and more sources of revenue for the club.

The board chair Doctor Ngoula joined the club recently and the club has a better relationship now with the owner of the transport Agency General Voyage with long serving former president Justin Tagou back in a different role in the club’s administration.

The new persons have very experienced persons in Football like Kuate Yaro and Justin Lambo to combine their know how with.
Kuate Yaro was the Sporting Director of Astres of Douala in the 2009 and 2010 seasons when the club finished runners up twice in the cup of Cameroon and also pushed for the title.

Justin Lambo was the vice president of New Stars of Douala when the club won the cup of Cameroon in 2017.

In addition the club secured the return of Georges Laurent Djam as head coach. It is the gaffer’s second spell at the club and he returns with fresh ideas on winning titles having claimed the cup of Cameroon in 2017 with New Stars of Douala and won the Cameroon League title in 2019 with UMS of Loum.

In the players recruitment front, some good players have joined the club

Former captain and central defender Bayem Jacques, 2018 League one winner with Eding Sport de la Lakie as captain Ngombe Etame,Leopard Sportif’s 2019 top scorer in the League 2 championship Hans Mbappe Muller,arguably YOSA player of the year in the 2014/2015 season Mark Ojong, Cameroon League one player of the year and league winner Arouna Dang,arguably Cameroon League 2 defender of the 2019 season Tchami Donatien have all joined the Mangwa boys.
