HONIARA-based football club, Henderson Eels has released a 27-man squad for the new season of the Honiara Football Association (HFA) league.
The list was released Tuesday this week.
Helen Wakio, the club owner said the players named in the list were selected based on two criterions.
The criterions are training attitudes and discipline in general and the second one is development.
Wakio said: “The club is looking at developing youthful potential players thus showing a huge amount of young players in the team.
“Many of our youths and young players got excellent talents which needs to be showcased and needs to be out in the open.
“This is different from the Telekom S-League (TSL) team. When in training and during HFA games, young players may develop themselves to enter or have the chance to join the main TSL Team.”
Included into the HFA team are notable names such as Andrew Rarangia, Junior Albert, Hudson Felani, Boni Pride, Joses Nawo, Clement Baegeni and Tuti Zama Tanito.
The 2018 HFA season will kick off on May 12.
Registration will close this Friday.
The HFA league competition went under a review recently and this season they are using the newly adopted two-divisional structure for the first time – Premier Division and Division One.
The new structure will see both divisions having 18 teams each.
The increment to the number of teams into each division is aimed toward having more matches for clubs in a season.
