Governor’s Cup boosts Port Moresby team’s efforts to develop, market players


THIRD-PLACE finishers Toks Mafuka Eels say the National Capital District Governor’s Cup has helped them in their efforts to develop and market players.
“We have a good number of players who play in the suburban leagues and town competitions,” Eels coach James Wally told The National after their 6-2 win over GH Mapex Eagles at Sir John Guise Stadium on Sunday.
“There are also a few of my players who’ve played in the Digicel Cup which is good for a lot of the young talents from Tokarara.
“The majority of the team are from Tokarara.
“We’ve also brought in a few players from Hohola.
“We all know each other through rugby league and that’s what has brought us together for the tournament.
Wally said they had other teams in the past but Mafuka Eels were one of the oldest sides from Tokarara and they thought it would be fitting to revive the team. “Our reason for entering the tournament was simple, keep players busy during the offseason and improve their character,” he said.
The Tokarara team claimed K10,000 for their efforts.
