Can anyone help with details of where and when the Sydney African Cup is on/being held ?
I came out of the Bankstown premier league grand final on Saturday and on the adjacent field there were around 30 or so African players training. I stopped and watched for a few minutes and was really impressed with the skill level and quality of play.
I spoke to a couple of the spectators who said they were preparing for the African cup later this month. The majority of the squad they said were from Sierra Leone. They thought the comp was being played somewhere in Parramatta but weren't sure of the details.
Some will recall the African squad (mainly from Ghana) who played with skill and flair in Granvile in 2003 and 2004.
It would be good to catch some of these matches which I have heard are very competitive and highly entertaining.
