Clubs warn NSC

KATHMANDU: The ‘B’ Division clubs warned the National Sports Council (NSC) not to interfere in the Martyrs Memorial ‘B’ Division League, scheduled to begin on Thursday. “The ANFA is ready to organise the league and we are ready to play. We don’t want any kind of obstructions,” said the representatives of the nine ‘B’ Division and five ‘A’ Division clubs at the press meet. The clubs’ move came after the NSC issued a notice instructing the ANFA and National Football Association not to organise any football tournaments until further notice. — HNS
