PMSA games going well, says Bukoya


THE Port Moresby Soccer Association (PMSA) will head into its fifth week of competition with matches progressing well at the Bisini Soccer Ground, says general secretary George Bukoya.
He said there were 63 teams competing in the premier, first, second, women’s and Under-23 divisions.
PMSA ran a grassroots and youth coaching course as well as a refereeing workshop in the past five weeks in partnership with the Papua New Guinea Football Association (PNGFA).
“We want to acknowledge the partnership and hope to further partner in many other events to promote football in Port Moresby and PNG as a whole,” Bukoya told The National.
“As we draw towards the halfway mark of the season proper, I want to thank all the players, officials and club sponsors for the successes so far.
“A reminder to our followers and players that the Coronavirus pandemic is still a threat, so the wearing of face masks and use of sanitisers is highly advisable.
“No spectators are allowed at the venue so I urge teams to turn up on time, play their scheduled matches and vacate the venue as quickly.”
Meanwhile, the coaching course, facilitated three weeks ago, had identified 17 participants who had been accredited as grassroots and youth coaches.
