This number represented an increase from last year of over fourteen footballers. The boys and girls vied for the chance to participate in a talent development football camp in Trinidad, and a chance to win a trip to Old Trafford, Manchester, to visit the facility and see Manchester United play.The final weekend in Trinidad will include coaching sessions for the coaches, and the skills and small sided games for the 28 finalists. This will be run by coaches from Manchester United. Manchester United Legend Dwight Yorke will also be in attendance.
Both winners are elated over the opportunity to travel to Trinidad for the next round of competition. They are looking forward to improving their skills, and promise to work hard to win the ultimate prize to travel to Old Trafford and to see Manchester United play.
