The head coach of Yong Sports Academy of Bamenda, Nkabyo Martin says he is satisfied with his team’s preparedness for the upcoming football season.

YOSA has continued to fine tune preparations at the Big Mankon Catholic School field, with the kick-off of the Cameroon league one championship expected in the days ahead.

“The bulk of the has been trying to get the players in a good physical shape. We just started orientating the team tactically and technically, given the fact that we have some new elements that have come in and so have to change our tactical animation. We started the job two weeks ago and the good thing is that the players have been very receptive, hardworking and they are progressing everyday. I think physically am satisfied with what I’m seeing right now”, Coach Nkabyo Martin told Mysoccer24.com when asked about his team’s readiness.

The coach continued;
“Even though we are just at 30 percent but we are going to get better as the competition unfolds, because matches can also help us improve physically. Generally if the Championship is to begin today, we are well prepared to play, though not yet at 100 percent. We are impatient to start”.

New acquisitions have YOSA’s mindset

YOSA has recently brought in the likes of Joel Etogue, Gael Noukeu, Adoum Defallah amongst others. According to coach Nkabyo Martin, the blend of youthful exuberance and experience, brings balance to the team, and lays a good foundation for the future.

“They bring in maturity and experience that we did not have last year to manage certain situations. We badly needed this experience to guide the youngsters in the squad and we are hoping that they are going to help these young players progress. They will also bring in technical and tactical quality and give us squad depth because we are going have more matches this season. We also think they also have the right mindset that fit our project and we are satisfied with what we have right now”.

 

Tongua Armel’s indelible mark

Tongua Armel was YOSA’s top scorer last season with nine goals.

YOSA is going to be without the club’s top scorer last season, Tongua Armel, who left for Sweden. Thierry Rolland Ngalle, Tegemo Emmanuel and Petit Fils Djamen also left.

“You don’t lose a player like Tongua Armel and you are not going to regret. He was not only a very good striker, but he was also a very good human being, away from the football field, he was somebody who was very easy to live with. We miss his presence and the quality he brings to our squad, but now we are Happy also that he is moving ahead with his studies and football career. He remains somebody who is very dear to our team. We are praying for him and we are in contact with him always”.

Yong Sports Academy were supposed to play regional rivals PWD in a friendly game on Sunday November 01, but the game has been cancelled.

Published

on

Reported to be in Tunisia in anticipation for a two-year deal with US Tataouine, Mark O’Ojong is being held back by parent club Bamboutos FC.

The 23 year old is yet to receive a formal ‘okay’ from Bamboutos FC, who at this point, are bargaining for a higher pay package.

The 23-year-old is seriously engaged with Tataouine as he has played in some preseason friendlies already.

The player however, has written to the club together with his entourage and expects a reply by Wednesday.

Bamboutos’ president, Dr. Roger Ngoula, has to put his signature on already compiled documents, but seems too busy.

O’Ojong Mark scored three goals and a couple of assists in as many matches for Bamboutos last season. His on – field heroics gave him the right to captain the Intermediate Lions till early October.

Pagou wins tactical battle as PWD holds up Al Ahli

Afeseh Apong,

Sports Writer Mysoccer24.com


Cameroon league one champions PWD Social football Club of Bamenda has played a zero all tie with Al Ahli Tripoli, in the return leg friendly, at the Tripoli International stadium on Saturday afternoon.

PWD defeated Al Ahli 2#1 in the first leg last Wednesday, and coming into Saturday’s game, coach David Pagou made a tactical shift, opting for a back four, instead of his usual back three formation.

Burinyuy Derrick was recalled into the starting XI after watching Wednesday’s game on the bench. Basile Yamkam was brought to his usual right back position, after operating at a wing forward during Wednesday’s game.

Coach Pagou choosed to sacrifice a Midfielder, Aboubakar Mohammed from his starting XI of last Wednesday, so as to accommodate four at the back. He equally preferred a more technical and pacey Enyegue François to start, while he prepared Mbah Louiz and Fegue Omgba to do the dirty job in the last quarter of the game.

As home side Al Ahli executed a whopping seven substitutions in the game, coach David Pagou stayed calm, and only brought in Fegue Omgba and Mbah Louiz in the last quarter of the game to reinforce his Midfield, sacrificing a wing forward (Tchaoua Leger) and young Midfielder, Enyegue François.

Pagou’s game plan largely centered around staying solid at the back, two holding Midfielders, Ndeh Collins and Vincent Paul Ngondi to cut off the offensive from Al Ahli, while Nchindo John Bosco, Tchaoua Leger and Billy Samin, negotiated all the counter attacks.

PWD’s back four showed great Resilience and a good reading of the game. Nyaba Brian was at the top of his game, as he made a series of goal serving tackles. Burinyuy Derrick was unbeatable in one on one duels.

Leaving Tripoli with a win and a draw from two games, it will not be an overstatement to say that David Pagou has pulled another tactical masterpiece.

Reacting to the game, coach Pagou said;

It was a CAF standard game, so we’re happy for the results. We thank Al Ahli and the Libyian football federation for this opportunity. We will go back to Yaoundé with good memories of Libya”.

The Abakwa Boys return to Cameroon on Sunday and will immediately go camping in Limbe, ahead of their CAF Champions league preliminary round fixture against Kaizer Chiefs of South Africa.

18_year_old Midfielder, Nchindo John Bosco will captain PWD Social football Club of Bamenda during their return leg Friendly game at the Tripoli International stadium on Saturday afternoon, against Al Ahli Tripoli.

Coach David Pagou has decided to hand the captains armband to the youngster, following his dazzling performance in their previous games.

PWD defeated Al Ahli 2#1 on Wednesday in the first leg. John Bosco’s 14 minute equalizer was the galvanizing force in PWD’s comeback.

The former Ebaidino FC Midfielder was surprisingly handed the armband after Louis Mbah was substituted in the second segment of the game, upon instructions from coach David Pagou.

With Mbah Louiz set to start on the bench in this Saturday’s game, coach Pagou has decided to give the leadership role to the 18_year_old prospect, despite recalling  regular match captain, Burinyuy Derrick into the starting XI. Derrick watched the entire 90 minutes of Wednesday’s game from the bench, as coach Pagou preferred a back three of Boung Joel Ondoa, Ngwang Brian and Hamzat Ibrahim Onotu, and later on brought in Billy Samin for Hamzat.

Nchindo John Bosco has scored four goal in preseason friendlies for PWD this far. He scored two against South Sudan, and one in the international Solidarity tourney – Yaounde, before his equalizer last Wednesday in Tripoli. In total, John Bosco has scored 10 career goals for PWD and provided eight assist, since he joined the club from Ebaidino FC in the 2018_2019 season.

John Bosco has been a revelation from last season. His works have started dragging interest from several categories of the national set-up, the Intermediate Lions being inclusive.

According to inside sources, Pagou’s choice of a match captain depends on a player who understands and transmits his philosophy, and he thinks Nchindo John Bosco is one of them.

With Burinyuy Derrick returning to the starting XI for today’s game, and Billy Samin and Yamkam Basile all starting, coach Pagou is going in for a back four, one of the rare occasions where he has shifted from his usual back three. The last time he effectively used four at the back, was in Limbe back in March, during PWD’s 2#1 over Union Sportive of Douala, where he had Njang Romeo, Boung Joel, Burinyuy Derrick and Basile Yamkam.
