Paulette wants corporate help for aspiring Rooneys

Future and Scholars International
will meet in the preliminary stages of the Cayman Islands Football Association
Under 13 FA Cup competition on Tuesday 9 February at the Ed Bush Stadium in
West Bay at 4:30pm.

At the TE McField Sports Complex
Academy will face Tigers at 4:00pm on the same date.

The draw was done in the studios of
Radio Cayman last Thursday by the Coordinator and Director of the youth
competitions Greg Ebanks and Deputy Chairman Paulette Conolly-Bailey under the
watchful eyes of representatives of CIFA and the clubs.

The two winners of these games will
advance to the quarter-finals scheduled for 23 February at a venue to be
announced.

Ten teams are participating in this
competition namely Academy, Bodden Town, Cayman Athletics Sports, Club Future,
George Town, Scholars International, Seven Miles, St Ignatius Catholic School,
Tigers and Elite.

Connolly-Bailey pleaded on air for corporate
sponsors to assist the children for essential items such as socks, water, Gatorade,
boots and other items.

She said: “It’s mandatory for the
youth teams to play in this competition as this is the feeder programme and
qualification basis for the First Division and the Premier League competitions.

“Therefore, I am appealing to the
corporate sponsors to help with gears and refreshments needed for these youths
to perform better in these games. Any company that comes on board to assist
will be greatly appreciated and given publicity for their efforts.”
