From 10 am on Saturday August 29, the country’s best talent in the Under-11, Under-13 and Under-15 categories will contest the semifinal and final rounds of the 2015 Republic Bank National Youth Cup tournament.

San Juan Jabloteh can become the first club to do a clean sweep of titles, as the “San Juan Kings” are still alive in all three divisions. While Central Zone representative, Cap Off Youths, and South Zone team, Uprising Youths, are contesting two divisions.

Trendsetter Hawks are the only 2014 champion team who have made it to the final four and can still defend their crown.

    I think Trendsetter Hawks are favourites in Under-11, San Juan Jabloteh in Under-13s… I really am not sure with Under-15s.
