“We only ac­cepted coaches with a Caf C badge and a min­i­mum of two years work­ing ex­pe­ri­ence so 10 guys were sent back home for fail­ing to meet the cri­te­ria.

“The ma­jor­ity of as­pir­ing par­tic­i­pants that were sent back home were hold­ers of Caf C badges, but fell short of the two years ex­pe­ri­ence,” said course co­or­di­na­tor
