T&T Maestros U-13s sweep Vincy tourney

T&T Maestros Football Institute U-13 team made a clean sweep in their first ever appearance at the Annual Hamilton Lashley Caribbean Children’s Charity Shield Football Classic held in St. Vincent from August 13-21.

The U-13 boys won the tournament trophy, and copped the awards for Most Goals (Denelson Kennedy, with 12 goals), Best Midfielder and Tournament MVP (Abdul-Quddos Hypolite).

This victory came just a month after securing the 2017 Republic Cup U-13 National Championship in Trinidad and Tobago hosted by Republic Bank Limited.

The T&T Maestros Football Institute, which hails from San Juan/Laventille, has been a quiet storm of talent brewing over the past year. The team also participated in their first ever Flow Youth Pro League Tournament under the banner of Central FC and placed fifth out of 10 teams.

The club places a heavy emphasis on its values of Discipline, Industry, Skill, Athleticism and Intellect and coach Sheldon De Freitas views the Institute as an opportunity to not only teach the youths about football, but mould them with values that can serve them in their communities.

He believes that this can go a long way to reverse the stigma attached to youth that come from certain communities in Trinidad and Tobago.

The Institute is open to all age groups and trains at the Angostura Grounds on Trinity Avenue off the Eastern Main Road.
