Young Elite tackle Future in West Bay showcase

Elite faces Future SC in the
quarter-finals of the Cayman Islands Football Association Under-13 FA Cup
competition.

The match is slated for next Tuesday
February 23 at the Ed Bush Stadium in West Bay
at 4:30pm.

News of the match was announced at
a live draw held in the studios of Radio Cayman last Thursday by host Nikolai
Hill and Deputy Chairman Paulette Connolly-Bailey.

Joining them in the studios were representatives
of CIFA and Kennedy Kelly, representative of Bodden Town FC.

The other draws were Tigers meeting
George Town at the Bodden Town Play Field on February
23 at 4:30pm, Bodden
Town facing Seven Miles
Sports Club on February 24 at the Bodden Town Play Field and Cayman Athletics encountering
St Ignatius at the Ed Bush Stadium on February 24 at 4:30 pm.

During the preliminary stages
played last week Future turned back Scholars International 5-4 on penalties
after a tie at regulated and extra time while Tigers defeated Academy 3-1 in
their game.

The four winners of these games
will contest the semi finals on a date and venue to be announced. 

At the end of the draw Kennedy
Kelly representative of the Bodden Town Football Club said that the Bodden Town
School was adopted by the
Football Club and out of that approach a great crop of players have been
unearthed and they are doing well so far.

Paulette Connolly-Bailey endorsed
that statement pointing out that Coach Gillie Seymour had done a similar thing
with the George Town
Primary School and George
Hicks as well and this too had been a success.

Connolly went on to appeal to the
fathers of these players to come out in support of their sons and also to act
as Linesmen in the games as the demand for Referees was vast and they needed
the help of volunteers in this capacity.

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