The Georgetown Football Association has kicked off the Guyana Football Federation/NAMILCO Thunderbolt Flour Power National U17 IntraAssociation.
Compton FC and Fruta Conquerors opened their accounts with impressive victories over the weekend when the U17 IntraAssociation League kicked off at the GFF National Training Centre.
The competition is the latest edition of the nationwide U17 collaboration between the NAMILCO and the GFF, which has supported the personal and sporting development of more than one thousand boys across the country since its inception.
“This is the first partnership that we launched back in 2016, and this partnership has endured for almost seven years,” GFF President Wayne Forde said after the official march-past of all the Georgetown Football Association (GFA) competing teams before the opening match.
In the first two matches for the GFA leg of the tournament, Compton routed Black Pearl 5-0, while Fruta Conquerors defeated Georgetown FC 3-1.
“I want to congratulate the Guyana Football Federation for taking this initiative and also to NAMILCO, our company, for having this tournament,” said NAMILCO Marketing Supervisor Alicia Anderson.
Anderson urged the competing teams to use the tournament as an opportunity to build their discipline and implement it in their lives.
GFA General Secretary Adrian Barrow thanked NAMILCO for its ongoing support to the development of youth football, and urged the players to make the most of the experience.
