NLCL 23: U15 Cup semis set for Malabar; Pt Fortin, Ginga, Titans and Cox FA in title hunt

The NLCL U15 Community Cup hits the knockout stage on Saturday, with Point Fortin Youth Football Academy, Jaric Titans, FC Ginga and Cox Football Academy all seeking a path to the finals of the inaugural competition.

Titans, the Group C winners from Tobago, face Point Fortin from 2pm at the Larry Gomes Stadium in Malabar on Saturday 10 June, while Group B champs Cox Football Academy tackle Group A winners FC Ginga from 3.45pm at the same venue.

Gates open at 12:30pm at the Malabar venue, with fans asked to arrive early. Admission is $30 with children under 12 free of charge.

Point Fortin Youth Football Academy are yet to concede a goal in the Community Cup so far, while they and fellow southerners Cox FA ended the group phase undefeated.

FC Ginga, who edged Trendsetter Hawks to Group A honours on the final match day, and the Titans, who finished ahead of Sidey’s Youths on goal difference in Group C, have their work cut out to avoid an all-south final.

“It’s not surprising to me anymore that so many talented young footballers are being well coached all around this country,” said tournament chairman Brian K Jordan. “The NLCL Community Cup is all about development and creating a platform for like-minded organisations and their youngsters to continue to get better in a sport we all share a passion for.”

The NLCL U15 Community Cup is sponsored by the Next Level Consulting Limited, Next Level Foundation, Ministry of Sport and Community Development, National Gas Company of Trinidad & Tobago, and Ramsingh’s Sports World.
