The Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) will be hosting its inaugural All Star Game on Sunday, at the Manny Ramjohn Stadium, Marabella.

This game will form part of the SSFL’s North-South Classic, with action set to begin at 3 pm.

According to William Wallace, president of the SSFL, “On the weekend of the 9th and 10th, we are putting on, for the first time, what we’ll call a North-South Classic. It’s an All Star game featuring teams from the North Zone, East Zone and Tobago versus the Central and South (Zones).”

Wallace said the North-South Classic will be staged in collaboration with legendary Trinidad and Tobago striker Steve David and local television network ACTS TV.

“We are inviting one and all to this game,” said Wallace. “Entry is free. It’s more than a game, it’s an event.

On Saturday we’ll have a skills competition starting at 3 (pm) and, on Sunday, we’ll have the actual game.”

The SSFL president said that coaches – local and international – will be involved in the process. “The national coaches will be there to look at players,” noted Wallace.

“We’ll also having some scouts at the game from outside of Trinidad and Tobago.

For the secondary school players who are going out on scholarships, that’s a very important thing for us.”
