COROZAL TOWN, Tues. Mar. 5, 2019– Another successful weekend! This is our fourth week of the ongoing youth U-Tournaments hosted by the Corozal Football Association (CFA) under the auspices of the Football Federation of Belize (FFB). Every week we are seeing the eagerness of each club wanting to compete and foremost develop on sportsmanship.
On Saturdays our games start at 1:00 p.m., and on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. at the Ricalde Stadium. The schedule was designed this way to be able to accommodate parents to be more supportive to their children. Every week, players give their best and are always interacting positively. We have instilled that after every game, both clubs shake hands and take group pictures acknowledging a good win or a good loss, as our ultimate goal is to develop the players and teach them to know how to win and how to lose in a harmonious manner.
This week, we take this opportunity to recognize another young player that has shown exceptional talent on the field. This young player is always on time for his workout sessions with his coach, and during the game is always giving his very best. At this age, we are certain that he has a promising future. Because of his hard work, dedication and passion for football, we recognize him.
He is Troy Alexander Ferguson (12 years old); he plays with the Corozal Invaders U10. Troy participated in the National U-13 Championship last year. We encourage all parents to keep being supportive to their children.
