March 4 (EMN): The five-day 2nd Aphuyemi Football Cup organised by the Aphuyemi Football Club (AFC) under the aegis of Sumi Games and Sports Association (SAGSA) was inaugurated by MLA Y Vikheho Swu at Pughoboto local ground on Tuesday, March 3.

Altogether 11 teams from various villages in the Pughoboto sub-division are participating in the tournament.

Further, Swu urged the Sumi Aphuyemi Teachers Welfare Organisation to restart the government schools’ U-12 tournament and tap young talents.
