PWD Bamenda Fires Coach As Anglophone Clubs Limp 

By Basil K MbuyePWD Bamenda

After just six days of play into the League 2 football season, PWD Social Football Club of Bamenda has fired their coach, Roger Fotso.

Fotso was sfired on February 28. The decision was made known, thanks to a press release made public by Pierre Anoufack, team press officer, and signed by the President Pascal Abunde.
According to the press release, Roger Fotso was sacked due to “a series of poor results produced by the team (8 points in 6 games) which does not put the club in a position to challenge for the league’s top positions.”

PWD Bamenda, aka Abakwa Boys, currently occupies the seventh position, after recording five draws and one victory in six games. The sledgehammer fell on Fotso after the team’s latest draw in the derby against National Polytechnic Bamenda, NPB FC.

In their six matches in the league, so far, the team seems to be playing more of a defensive system. They have conceded three goals and have scored five goals in six games, so far. They have failed to score in two games in which they recorded goalless draws and had remained one of the two teams unbeaten, so far, in the championship.

PWD are currently four points shy of Fovu of Baham, who are also unbeaten and occupy the first position. The club is yet to announce a replacement for Fotso, who helped qualify the team for the Professional League after more than a decade in the Regional League.

On their part, National Polytechnic of Bambui and Dynamic of Buea, have been limping since the beginning of the championship. They have each recorded just a single victory in their six games played. This situation has put their form in question if they are into the championship to maintain or gain promotion in the country’s top league.

Njalla Quan Sports Academy Continue Sinking

Since relegated to League 2 last year, the Limbe-based club of late Henry Njalla Quan is yet to find a winning formula. After six days of play, the club has registered a whopping five losses with a resounding 5-1 humiliation last Sunday against AS Etoa Meki. NQSA has recorded just a single point against Tonnerre of Yaoundé during day two of play.

According to reports, the club is believed to have turned its attention to its academy, thereby using only players in its football academy.
If things continue the way they are, the team is bound to continue its journey to the Regional League.
