Ghana’s U-17 team, the Black Starlets, will camp in Nigeria to prepare for this year’s African Junior Championship in Gabon.

Coach Paa Kwasi Fabin’s side are expected to leave the country next month to fine tune preparations ahead of the tournament.

The Starlets will play a trial game with third-tier side Republicans today at their camping base in Prampram.

Ghana is in Group A alongside host country Gabon, Cameroon and Guinea in the tournament which is scheduled to commence from May 21st -June 4th.

Ghana have won two gold medals in the U-17 category in 1991 and 1995.
