Premier League clubs should register players early: //HoŽbeb
NAMIBIA Premier League (NPL) Administrator Joshua Tovey //HoŽbeb has called on Premiership clubs to register their players early for the 2010/11 season, and not wait for the very last day.
In an interview with Nampa on Monday, //HoŽbeb said the first registration of players kicked off on Monday this week, and the teams have been informed of the date.
ďThe morning has been very quiet. Teams like rushing at the very last minute (to register),Ē said //HoŽbeb, adding that perhaps the clubs are in negotiations with old and new players. The 12 elite teams have until 31 August to complete their registrations for the 2010/2011 NPL season that is set to start on September 11.
The Premier League clubs are African Stars, Black Africa, Orlando Pirates, Eleven Arrows, Blue Waters, Civics, Oshikandela Ramblers, Cymot Sport Klub Windhoek (SKW), Oshakati City, Tigers and newcomers Blue Boys. One team is still expected to come from the Northern Stream First Division.
//HoŽbeb said the Northern Stream First Division will conclude its play-offs in early August.
He thus advised those players who want to join new clubs to first resign from their current clubs, adding that those clubs who are interested in players must also first negotiate with the current clubs of the players to enable them to be released orderly.
ďThey must follow the correct procedures,Ē warned #HoŽbeb.
The second transfer period will take place in January 2011. Ė Nampa
