Belize will be participating in CONCACAF U-15 Boys Championship Tournament which will be staged in the Cayman Islands from August 10 – 25. This is for the countries in the CONCACAF region.

(Ed. Note: See “Guatemala U-17 women top Belize” elsewhere in this issue. Our girls will try to redeem themselves this Sunday.

In the friendly in Melchor, our National ‘A’ Team defeated Guatemalan 1st Division club Heredia, 2-nil, on goals by Trevor “Burger” Lennen and David Trapp. The real test will be against the Guatemalan ‘A’ Team on June 11.

Our National U-15 male team, like our National Female U-17, will not have a long time to prepare for the CONCACAF competition in August. Fortunately, the Belmopan Football League has a good U-15 tournament going, including the Gold Medal winning YWAM Roaring Creek squad, which might form the nucleus of our National U-15 male team.)
