CGC’s Cult Energy Drink on board as EBFA launches U-17 tourney
They have been inactive for quite some time but recently returned to the fray with two tournaments, the Trophy Stall Under-15 approximately one month ago and now the Stag Beer Division One tournament currently underway.
Now, the executive of the East Bank Football Association (EBFA) has heightened activities and have launched yet another tournament, the Cult /EBFA Under-17 League slated to kick off at the Grove Community Centre Ground EBD, Saturday May 17 next.
The tournament would be staged under the Cult label, an energy drink marketed by the
Continental Group of Company. To this effect, the organizers convened at the Industrial Site headquarters of that organization yesterday morning where Corporate Secretary of that organization, Percival R. C. Boyce (Jr.) joined with his Office Manager, Chaitnarine Brijnandan and other executives to hand over the requisite sponsorship cheque to offset the expenses require for the tournament’s success. President of the EBFA, Wayne Franscois, was also in attendance as was his Secretary, Franklin Wilson.
Mr. Boyce congratulated the organizers for their efforts and said that his company was extremely delighted to support their efforts. He noted that the tournament aims to prepare youths for the many challenges ahead and since this objective paralleled with that of his organization, he felt obliged to offer support.
He further said that the Cult energy drink is an energy activator powered by the guarana fruit and the popular ginseng herb to produce the most efficient energy drink. This product will be on sale at the match venue during the tournament.
Mr. Wilson also conveyed deep appreciation to the sponsors and urged the public to render support to the product which by extension is rendering support to the development of the sport. He said that the organizers will aspire to maintain tempo in organizing tournaments over the coming years.
Mr. Wilson said that they wish to acknowledge the achievements of Trayon Babb, a young Golden Jaguar and hope his success would serve as the inspiration to other players. “It is our desire that other players clinch lucrative opportunities that will see them showcasing their skills beyond the border,” Wilson concluded.
Eight teams will battle for championship honours including Kuru Kururu Warriors, Timerhi Panthers, Grove Hi Tec, Diamond United, Herstelling FC, Mocha Champs, Agricola Red Triangle and Soesdyke Falcons.
The players will also vie for the Most Valuable Player Trophy donated by Trophy Stall. The organizers also hinted that New York based rifleman, Sigmund Douglas, will donate a computer for the Most Valuable Player while there will also be prizes for the best goalie and the most prolific goal scorer.
