[www.inewsguyana.com] – The East Bank Football Association (EBFA) will join forces with the Ministry of Culture Youth and Sport to kick off an Under-13 tournament on Saturday, September 27 set for the Farm Community Centre ground, East Bank Demerara.

Trophies and medals will be up for grabs for the top three teams while fourth place will receive a trophy. The Most Valuable Player (MVP), the highest goal scorer and best goalkeeper are also slated to receive trophies after the tournament’s conclusion.

However, thus far only five teams are in: Soesdyke Falcons, Kuru Kururu Warriors, Agricola Red Triangle, Grove Hi Tech and Herstelling Raiders. Herstelling Assistant Coach, Paul Sookram was in high spirits about the tournament.

“We have been trying our best at the Herstelling Raiders FC to keep our youths active in the sport of football and they have been doing us proud. We finished second on the just concluded Cult Under-17 League; we also did well in the Trophy Stall Under-15 League earlier this year and we are competitive in the Stag Beer Division One League,” Sookram stated.

Sookram believes the tournament will be a success and thanked the Herstelling/Farm/Little Diamond Neighborhood Democratic Council for their ardent support in hosting the tournament.
