More than 60 young Jamaican footballers from across the island had the opportunity of a lifetime on Saturday when they were joined by Quinton Fortune, Manchester United legend, who jetted to Jamaica for the Flow Ultimate Football Experience youth skills development clinic held at the Liberty Ballaz field in Kingston.
The tough-tackling midfielder and South African international is one of several Manchester United Legends who will be present in some of FLOW’s markets at the skills-based events, leading up to the Flow Ultimate Football Experience Final in Trinidad on May 7.
The latest region-wide initiative, hosted by FLOW and Manchester United, is designed to give youngsters the chance-of-a-lifetime to participate in local talent development football camps across FLOW’s 15 markets.
Two winners from each country will advance to the two-day skills session in T&T to experience one-on-one training with Caribbean Football Union (CFU) and Manchester United Soccer School coaches. There, they will participate in a series of drills designed by the coaches and compete for the chance for two finalists and their coach to win a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Old Trafford in Manchester, England, to see Manchester United in a Premier League fixture.
Thirteen-year-old Tyrese Williams, a student of Kingston College and a member of the Harbour View FC youth programme, and 15-year-old Romario Willis, who attends St George’s College and plays for Central Kingston, have been selected as the two lucky youth players to represent Jamaica in a region-wide skills development camp. The boys along with their coaches and a guardian will be making the trip to Trinidad in May.
