SOY founder George Roper addresses the young footballers

Three teams took honours at the SOY Foundation Football Extravaganza fund-raiser and competition on Saturday at the George Town Annex, bringing home a message of positive choices for young people.

Twelve teams took part, watched by hundreds of parents, spectators, supporters and friends while scores of players, substitutes, coaches, assistants and referees were in constant motion all day, capped by a trophy ceremony as evening stole across the field.

Academy Football Club won the under-15 boys competition, followed by Future FC and Elite Sports Club.

Elite Under 17s also took the women’s division, followed by Future and Bodden Town.

Academy took the under-17 boys, flowed by John Gray, Tigers FC and Bodden Town.

John Gray coach Ernie “Coach Gillie” Seymour described the extravaganza, the largest in years, as “a beautiful afternoon” that “brought youth together for a good day of football and learning to make positive choices. It went really well.”

Elite Coach Tiger Wilson, who organised and coordinated the event with SOY founder George Roper and Acting President Iris Stoner said the extravaganza had been “a great success, especially with so many people there, including all the parents. It seems like Mr Roper is doing something very successful, and his message of positive choices and community relations is vital.”

Mr Roper declared all teams as winners: “There were no losers. The focus of the event was to encourage young people to make positive choices in their lives, and I want to thank all of them, and all the teams and sponsors for their contributions.”
