THE Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation will launch the second round of screening activities for their Boys Under-15 Development Programme this weekend. Activities will kick-off on Sunday at 9 am at the Marvin Lee Stadium in Macoya.

In August organisers visited a number of venues throughout the country and Sunday’s activities will start another nation-wide talent search.

TTFF Special Advisor Jack Warner says this is just another initiative to ensure the sustained growth and development of sport

“We cannot only measure success by the number of matches we win, but a number of other factors must be considered. I measure success by the impact this sport is having on the development of this country. “I measure success by the number of young people lined-up to participate in this sport. Success in this sport is not judged by one project , but by our ability to ensure success in all future projects,” Warner said.

“Succession planning is the key to success and the Under-15 Development Programme is a critical component of success in the future,” the FIFA vice-president said.

Proposed dates and venues are as follows:

Sunday September 20th Marvin Lee Stadium , Training Field 9am- 12 noon

Skinner Park, Sunday September 27th, 9.00 a.m.- 12 noon.

Hasely Crawford Stadium or St. Mary’s Ground, Sunday October 4th, 9.00 a.m.- 12 noon.
