Starlets Coach Quits Club Duties

Soccer Express

The coach of Sekondi Hasaacas, David Duncan has vacated the position to concentrate on his new job as coach of the national under-17 team, the Black Starlets.

Duncan's decision was taken after discussions with the management of Hasaacas.

Duncan joined the Hasaacas side in the 2003 season after parting ways with Accra Great Olympics and kept an impressive home record in the league last season.

He was appointed Starlets coach last month.

Duncan begins his Black Starlets selection process on June 15 after having called up 56 players to camp.

David Duncan had been reported to be reeling under intense pressure from scouts and football agents seeking places for their wards and players.

But Duncan told the Soccer Express Tuesday that henceforth, his team would not entertain any advances from any quarters seeking to foist any player on the Starlets.

Duncan said even though major exercises to recruit the best of talents into the Starlets have been completed, there could be other equally good potentials yet to be spotted and as such would keep the doors to the Starlets camp open to accommodate them.
