Head Coach Deklerk Nsakakuona has added 10 more players to the 20-man squad that went to Tanzania for the Federation of East Africa Secondary Schools Sports Associations (FEASSSA) games last month.

The team will remain in camp until the start of the tournament on 11th October.

FAM technical Director John Kaputa says they have jointly with the Malawi Schools Sports Association put in place a programme that has incorporated academic activities to keep the players abreast with their studies.

“All the players are now registered with Massa and have been provided with text and note books as per their classes. We will now work on allocating teachers for academic sessions in between training sessions,” said Kaputa.

According to Kaputa, the team will have a total of 18 training days before the Cosafa competition.

He said the team will be training three times a day during the first week.
