Winners of the Guyana Football Federation Inter-Association Tournament, Georgetown recently rewarded its outstanding performers and coaches during a simple ceremony which was conducted at the Sleep In Hotel on Brickdam.
Attended by members of the new executive of the Georgetown Football Association including President, Lieutenant Commander Vernon Burnett, Vice-Presidents Ivor Thompson (Administrative) and Mark Phillips (Tournament Co-ordinator), parents, well wishers and coaches, Head Coach Sampson Gilbert, who delivered the feature address implored on parents to play an active role in their children’s careers, adding that that support is crucial if they are to stay in the sport and display the kind of discipline necessary to develop into top flight players.
“Parents I urge you here tonight not to neglect your role as the main supporter of your children. Your input is extremely important and relevant if they are to go on to become good players and more significantly stay in the sport,” Gilbert said.
Lt. Commander Burnett speaking with the media promised to maintain a database of the players in an effort to help guide their careers, especially those who had done well during the competition.
He said that it is critical to have such a record since it will enable the Association to monitor their careers and assist in the development of the game here by the production of future stars.
The players were presented with boots and other related items to play the sport, while the coaches received stipends for their outstanding work in guiding the team to the title.
Prizes were donated by Colors Boutique.
