Five disqualified from Nash U20 tourney

HARARE - Five fledgling footballers will not be taking part in the National Association of Secondary Heads (Nash) Under-20 football tournament after they failed to meet the vetting criteria yesterday.

The tournament bank-rolled by Population Services International (PSI), kicks off today at Prince Edward School with defending champions Churchill High School the team to beat.

Albert Mucheka, the Nash head in charge of football, said the number of players disqualified this year was a significant decrease from the players disqualified in previous years.

“This time because it’s of higher age group the case of incorrect documentation was fewer. We only got five cases of players that did not have correct documents," he said.

"One did not have a birth certificate, the other we were not satisfied that his identification was really his.

“We also had to send another away because he was 1998. We were only taking players from 1995- 97. So will did not allow 1998

“We had communicated all this with the teams way in advance.”

Group C: Rujeko High School, Prince Edward School, Gandauta High School
