Adam Korave

Marum confirms Korave being dropped from Hunters

“Adam has been dropped. I’ve actually spoken to him; he’s had a few problems throughout this year with his family especially.

“As a leader that we saw fit to lead the boys around the park all of this year, I think he didn’t lead well.

“The football side is ok, but it’s just the off field stuff. I’ve spoken to him, he’s going to go back and work his way back from the Digicel Cup,” said Marum.

The Hunters will go into pre-season training straight after the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup on December 4.

Zeming and Korave to lead Hunters

SP Hunters Coach Micheal Marum announced their names adding they are potential leaders that the management has confidence in to lead the team.

“I want to thank the coaching staff for the confidence in me and Adam to lead the boys for this season. I know it’s a big task but I believe in the boys for cooperation,” Zeming said.

He said being under the leadership of Coach Micheal Marum and former captain Israel Eliab in the past two years has given him a bit of courage to lead.
