FIRST Division clubs have agreed to stage some of their matches at stadiums in the New Territories as an option to the frequently used Mongkok and Hong Kong Stadiums. The Hong Kong Football Association's (HKFA) vice-chairman, Andy Lo Yun-sum, said yesterday that the Yeung Uk Road Sports Ground in Tsuen Wan and two other sports grounds in Sha Tin and Tai Po would be the three new venues for local matches. He said the HKFA would ask the Regional Council to improve facilities at those stadiums. 'Those stadiums, which have 2,000 to 4,000 seats, are easily accessible by MTR or KCR. So it will be very convenient for those who live in Kowloon or on Hong Kong Island to go there, too,' said Lo. 'We had matches at Yeung Uk Road Sports Ground a few seasons ago. I don't think there will be major problems.' Meanwhile, the HKFA youth committee last night confirmed who will manage the under-19 national youth team for the Asian Youth Championship next year. The management will be comprised of three HKFA representatives and three from the Hong Kong Sports Institute (HKSI). HKSI head coach Kwok Ka-ming said last night he and the other two HKSI coaches, Chan Yung-cheung and Lai Sun-cheung, would be the HKSI's representatives. 'But we still have to confirm everyone's titles,' he said. 'Basically there will be one coach, one manager and one supervisor from each group.' The national squad will also have a panel comprising the HKSI director Dennis Whitby, Kwok, the HKFA vice-president Veronica Chan Yiu-kam, the HKFA chairman Stewart Lee Leung-nang and the HKFA youth committee chairman Benny Tang Kar-hung. 'We will select around 20 players for the Asian Youth Championship tomorrow,' said Kwok. 'Then we will start our training. 'There will be 15 training sessions each week at the HKSI and we have prepared a few overseas tournaments for them including November's China Youth Cup in Wuhan, which is followed by the JAL Youth Cup.' The Asian Youth Championship will start in January and finish in June. Hong Kong are in the same group as China, Indonesia and Vietnam. The team will be the first test for the joint training programme of the HKFA and HKSI.
