Hundreds of aspiring skilful footballers turned up at the Paa Joe Stadium inside the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) for the Ashanti Region tryouts of the ongoing Betway Talent Search.
The players who turned out for the tryouts had various skill sets as some were midfielders, defenders, forwards and goalkeepers.
