Yanga claim success in pre-season camp

YOUNG Africans have described their pre-season as a befitting test prior to the start of the 2022/23 Premier League season which officially takes off from August 15th this year.

During their ongoing pre-season camp, Yanga played three friendly games and won all comfortably.

Last season's top goal scorer runners-up Fiston Mayele and Heritier Makambo contributed one goal each to enable Yanga beat Namungo in their third game at Avic Town, thus making the team to seal perfection by 100 percent.

It all started with a 5-1 win over Transit Camp, 9-0 victory over Friends Rangers before seeing off Namungo in their last signal testing encounter.

Up next, Yanga will face Vipers of Uganda at Benjamin Mkapa Stadium in Dar es Salaam tomorrow in a match that aim to add a dimension  to 'Wiki ya Mwananchi' celebrations.

On that day, the club will also parade their full squad to be featured in their 2022/23 league and CAF Champions League campaigns. 

It will be an opportunity for Yanga family to witness their new framed team taking on champions of Uganda in a seemingly difficult match set to colour the important day for the Jangwani street giants.

However, commenting after the game, Yanga's second choice goalkeeper Abdultwalib Mshery said the match gave them genuine test of what they should expect when the new premier league season kicks off.

"We have generated positive things from this game which will be used to scale up our performance when the league starts and as players, we are all looking forward to the new season," he said.

Yanga will begin their title defence campaign with a tricky away fixture against Polisi Tanzania at Sheikh Amri Abeid Stadium in Arusha on August 16th this year.
