Trendsetter Hawks will be aiming for their second consecutive victory in the Elite Under 17 division of the Republic Bank Youth League today when they face Queen’s Park Football Academy at 3.30pm at the Queen’s Park Savannah, Port of Spain.
The Hawks are confident of recording another win after completing a resounding 6-0 victory over Crown Trace in their opener last week. However, the Parkites will be keen to rebound after suffering a 4-1 defeat to Marabella FCC at the same venue. At 12.30pm, Marabella will be coming up against Tobago’s Jaric Titans, who won their last match against Giving Back FC 3-0.
Prisons FC will face Giving Back at 3.30pm, with both teams searching for their first victory. Simultaneously, Crown Trace FC will be hoping to get off the mark as they battle Petit Valley/Diego Martin United.
The Pizza Hurt Player of the Day award last week went to Queen’s Park’s Zane Marshall who bagged a beaver-trick in a 4-0 hammering of North Coast SCC in the Under-15 division.
The Republic Youth League is the country’s longest running and most successful youth football competition at 27 years old. This year, the league has again attracted 100 teams. Tobago’s competition kicks off next weekend.
This year the competition has added a new Elite Under 17 division with the top eight clubs from 2018 qualifying. The clubs which have qualified for this first edition are: QPCC, Trendsetter Hawks, Marabella Family Crisis Centre, Giving Back FC, Prisons FC, Petit Valley FC, Crown Trace and Tobago champions Jaric Titans.
