    From the copperbelt the feeling is that it’s the way to go with identification of young promising players! These should be filters to super league teams without any hindrance. This happens in European leagues; talented players are not left to languish for long in lower leagues by selfish club bosses. In fact super league officials should be encouraged to be present at such the finals. We could unearth talented players at at early age.
