Defending NLCL U19 Community Cup champions Soccer Made Simple (SMS) and anticipated contenders, W Connection FC, will contribute the most players to Sunday’s All Star event, as the 2022/23 tournament takes a break to offer appreciation to its young stars.
The NLCL U19 Community Cup All Star game kicks off at 4pm on Sunday 12 February at the Larry Gomes Stadium in Malabar, with 44 players split between North/ East/ Tobago and South/ Central.
The former of the two combined outfits features players from two groups, although SMS made up more than a quarter of the team.
The Bon Air team’s strike pairing of Terron Miller and Larry Noel, holding midfielder Philip Tinto and gifted left back Tyrell Inniss were among four call-ups for North/ East/ Tobago.
Fellow semifinalists, World Class Soccer Clinic, were also well represented with four players, which included pacy midfielder Theron O’Brien.
There were selections from other nine other teams as well including Ball Blasters YA forward Kyle James, who scored twice in their 3-2 quarterfinal win over Gasparillo Youths on Sunday.
There were only six teams in the South/ Central group and all contributed to their All Star side, although W Connection had the most selections with five: inclusive of forward Caleb Boyce, winger Maliki Carrington, and goalkeeper Zeronn Collymore.
