Football trials that never were


The highly publicised football trials which were expected to take place at Lord Malvern High school last month flopped after five football coaches from America, who were expected in the country at the end of last month to conduct trials did not show up.

When asked to comment on the no-show by the American coaches, a sports official at Lord Malvern School referred all questions to football agent, Denford Mutashu, who was said to be the one co-ordinating the trials.

“We were not involved in the organisation of the purported trials. We were only responsible for providing the venue.

“The event was cancelled at the last minute and we didn’t receive any reasons for the cancellation,” said the official at Lord Malvern who refused to be named.
