The Masons Elite Under-9 team triumphed handsomely at the Trendsetter Hawks Football Tournament which kicked off last weekend at the Brian Lara Recreational Ground, Santa Cruz.
Braving the weather, this collection of talented 7-9 year olds did well to overcome the challenge posed by other Under-9 teams such as Queen’s Park, Caledonia AIA, the Waterloo Institute and the hosts themselves, among others, to remain unbeaten throughout, conceding just one goal along the way.
The elite team, coached by Kion Williams and based in Port of Spain, is an effort to keep the youngsters in regular training and competition with children of similar talent level from an early age in order to enhance their development and teamwork.
Their victory was their second this year after winning a youth competition in San Fernando previously.
The Trendsetter Hawks tournament was a fund-raising effort by the Trendsetter Hawks Football Academy toward an upcoming tour to Spain.
