The information provided to Republica suggests that a 20-member squad has been finalized to compete in the Hampshire league.
According to Sahara UK President Navin Gurung, Nawal Gurung and Sandeep Upadhyay will lead the team. "The main aim of joining the local league is to create an identity of the Nepalese team (Sahara FC UK) in UK and give the opportunity to talented Nepalese players in UK and Nepal," said Gurung.
