The Zamfara united football club has begun screening for new players as the league season draws closer.
DAILY POST who visited the Gusau township stadium where the screening exercise is ongoing, reports that many players with outstanding qualities were present to fight for a shirt in the football club.
When interviewed, the chairman of the club, Abdulaziz Hamza and the Technical Adviser, Alhassan Mohammed expressed satisfaction, saying that the screening exercise has attracted promising talents from various league and non â€“ league clubs to the camp.
â€œIn fact, with what we have seen on ground, the club will be one of the few clubs to watch out for in the forthcoming league seasonâ€ they added.
