The wait is over, and the SW Regional League has taken the center stage in the Region where, the god’s of football reside.

Two clubs have been gifted the envious position of opening the league that has often acted as a recevoir to the national team and the world at large, names like Ojong Mark, Marcus Mukake and a cue of fine users of the ball have been taken their very first touches in the Region.

NQSA of Limbe pitting Ajax of Tiko is the very first game that would thrill the SW population. Ajax narrowly missed out on a spot in the mini-interpol, while NQSA has been a complete shadow of what they reflected in SW football, decades ago.

After Kick442 met up with the Ajax staff last week, we took interest in Coach Edwin and his NQSA side, for the build up to the game.

The gaffer is excited with the start of the season- “as at now, I am excited because it is an impromptu call, despite the fact that, we were informed a week ago that the first day of play would be tomorrow, we had our doubts, because the license system was not opened-but attending this extraordinary G.A, and confirming we have to play tomorrow comes with excitement”. “We have been training and I am not scared of my opponents, though I know they would be coming back for vengeance, because of their heavy loss to Victoria United in last year’s opener”.

NQSA acquired the services of coach Tete Edwin from Dynamic in the close season, and his profile show’s the team would be no pushover;

Assistant Coach Mt Cameroon F.C, 2012

2013-2014; U.B assistant silver medal 2014 varsity games, Douala

2015-Head Coach Little Foot – Vice champion -Tiko challenge cup

2016-Prisons Buea head coach

2017-2018, head coach Dynamic F.C, Buea

2019-NQSA Limbe, Trainer and fitness coach

These two teams lost their opening games in last seasons opener, in humiliating fashion; NQSA lost to CUSA by a 5 goal to nil margin, while Ajax of Tiko lost by the same margin.
