COROZAL TOWN, Mon. May 13, 2019– It is an honor to inform all Corozalenos and fans countrywide of the successful youth tournament held by the Corozal Football Association (CFA) under the auspices of the Football Federation of Belize (FFB). Through these past twelve weeks, we have seen the development in each of the players, starting from as early as for the U10 to the U19 category. Many thanks to all the persons that “Believed in the Process;” it is because of you and your contribution, these past weeks have been the best.
This week, we witnessed the finale of the U15 and U17 Male Youth Tournament on Saturday, May 11, at the Ricalde Stadium. Both teams played their hearts out in each game; but at the end, Corozal Invaders won in both categories.
In addition, we want to make special recognition to Mr. Errol Aranda, Sr., Coach/Manager for the Corozal Rising Stars (CRS), for your arduous work and commitment to youth development.
