OVER 300 young footballers participated in a three-day soccer clinic of the Waterloo Institute of Soccer at the Ato Boldon Stardium recently.

WISP later held their annual awards ceremony at which Chaguanas Mayor Orlando Nagessar in giving the feature address stressed the importance of football as an exercise for good health.

Medals were presented by Central Football Association president Bryan Layne to the Cap Off Youths under-13 players who were runners-up in the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation National Youth League.

But pride of place went to the under-10 squad which won the National Cup at a tournament in Florida, USA, and got tokens from Couva/Tabaquite/Talparo Regional Corporation Councillor Dhanraj Saroop.

Special awards went to Michael David for coaching, veteran Leslie Hoyte for sports education and Layne for administration.

And appreciation awards were handed to five US-based Trinidadian coaches Kendall Walkes, Anthony James, Kendall Reyes, Derek Arneaud and Andre Fortune.

Players receiving awards include Shalette Alexander, Victoria Swift and Keri Myers, all of the national under-17 squad; Garvin Samaroo national under-17 boys and Ryan Fredericks and Donnelly Gopicharan. Their awards were handed out by TTFF president Lennox Watson.
