Friendly match

Kohima, April 14: In preparation of the Dr T Ao Inter-district Football Championship to be held from April 18-29 in Mokokchung, a friendly match was played between Kohima and Tseminyu districts at Indira Gandhi stadium Kohima today.
Kohima District Football Association (KDFA) defeated Football Association of Tseminyu District (FATD) 3-1.
The FATD was formed recently following the upgrade of Tseminyu sub-division to a district, and this will be its first major tourney.
FATD team manager Chenonlo Woch said that the new team which was once part of KDFA is grateful to it for the constant support.
Mentioning that the FATD players have reaped benefits through the KDFA, he hoped that the existing spirit of brotherhood between the two will only grow though the players have been divided to two teams now.
KDFA president Mathew Yhome also exhorted the players ahead of the match, encouraging the players to play a safe game, while also advising them to be disciplined and maintain sportsmanship.
