Tema Youth will not recall five of their key players on national duty for the second half of the season.
Defenders Jeremiah Arkoful and Joseph Attamah as well as midfield duo Moses Odjer and Derrick Mensah and striker Francis Narh are key members of the national under-20 team currently preparing for the 2013 African Youth Championship in Algeria.
Youth say they will not invoke Article 13 of the Ghana FA regulations which allows them to seek for a postponement of their League match against Medeama after contributing more than four players to the national team.
“We’ll play without the five players because we want the good of the national team,” Sporting Director Winfred Osei Parma said
“They are influential members of our team but we have other players who can hold the forte while they are away on international duty.
“We’re not going to disrupt the League by seeking for postponements. That is the assurance we give to our fans.
The Black Satellites will embark on a training tour of Italy next week in preparation of the tournament in Algeria.
