Jaric Titans move into U-13, U-15 finals
By Narissa Fraser (T&T Newsday)


THE Republic Cup National Youth Football League, which began on June 1, continued yesterday with its semi-final matches at the Larry Gomes Stadium in Malabar, Arima.

A total of 12 teams faced off in the Under-11, Under-13 and Under-15 categories to secure their spots in next week’s finals.

The Under-11 games were 50 minutes each with nine-a-side teams. The first match between SKHY FC and Pro Series began with some excitement as Kai Williams of SKHY FC found the back of the net in the seventh minute. SKHY FC were on their way to victory but a 40th minute equaliser from Jasai Theophilous, who was the MVP of the match, took the teams to penalty kicks where it ended in heartbreak for SKHY as Pro Series won 5-4.

Trendsetter Hawks I cruised past Queen’s Park Football Academy 2-0 in the second Under-11 semi; both goals scored by Ishan Miller.

Jaric Titans faced Trendsetter Hawks II in an Under-13 semi. The matches in this category were 60 minutes long but the coaches seemed tense as they were pacing and shouting on the sidelines.

The Titans supporters were also at the edge of their seats until Denton Alleyne copped a late goal, leading the Titans to a 1-0 victory. Alleyne said the match was easy for him and that he is looking forward to scoring more goals in the final.

Trendsetter Hawks I defeated the Point Fortin Youth FA 1-0 with a late goal from Mordecai Ford.

Following in the footsteps of their younger counterparts, the Jaric Titans Under-15 squad earned a 2-0 victory over Santa Cruz United, with Orlando Jones finding the back of the net in the 36th and 50th minute.

The day ended the same way it began - with penalties. FC Ginga faced off with Trincity Nationals where it remained goalless at the end of regulation time. Trincity Nationals went on to win 4-2 on penalties.

The finals will be held on July 6 at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Mucurapo from 10 am.

Republic Youth Cup to provide scholarship opportunities for players
By Jonathan Ramnanansingh (T&T Newsday)


REPUBLIC Bank’s partnership with Gateway Athletics International for the 2022 Republic Youth Cup will provide players with the opportunity to secure scholarships at local, regional and international colleges and universities.

This was announced by Gateway managing director Shem Alexander at the tournament’s launch last Friday at Republic Bank’s head office in Port of Spain.

After a two-year absence owing to covid19, the long-standing youth competition returns in June and will provide avenues of academic and sporting growth for young players.

Registration is open to all schools, football academies and clubs. Interested participants can register by logging on to www.gatewayathletics.com.

Hosts Republic Bank have been involved in this popular tournament, which promotes the advancement of youth football, for over two decades.

At the launch, Alexander, a former Republic Youth Cup participant, expressed enthusiasm for the competition’s return and was eager to see T&T’s up-and-coming talent on show.

“We have come on board to act as the conduit to ensure the student-athletes with the local schools, football academies and clubs are given the opportunity to chart their football career through football scholarships to colleges and universities, locally, regionally and internationally.

“The vision was birthed as a result of a need to assist and provide a bridge of opportunity to local and regional student-athletes.

“Through strong established relationships with various universities, colleges and clubs throughout the US and UK, Gateway stands proud on its record of having fostered over 100 scholarships for both male and female student-athletes,” he said.

This year’s Republic Youth Cup features male and female Under-14, Under-16 and 17-19 divisions.

Additionally, organisers revised the previous format and reverted to the original format which is seven versus seven.

Alexander added, “We expect to grasp the spirit of the community as we host a weekend of play for each of the various zones throughout TT. This provides good opportunities for participants through the All-Star weekend while engaging US-based colleges and institutions.”

Also present at the launch were Republic Bank’s senior manager group marketing and communications Kwame Blanchfield, Gateway Athletics director of operations Adrian Romain, YMCA CEO T&T Odetta Alexander, director of SporTT Hayden Mitchell, chairman of Tunapuna Regional Corporation Kwesi Robinson and tournament ambassador/international footballer Robert Primus.
