The Youth Pro League (YPL) will have new challengers in southerners Point Fortin Civic (PFC), when the 2014 YPL kicks off tomorrow at four venues across Trinidad.
TT Pro League debutants Point Fortin Civic have done remarkably well in the professional division, sitting third on the Digicel Pro League standings after two rounds, and tomorrow the southerners will field youth teams in the under-14, under-16 and under-18/reserve divisions.
Point Fortin Civic will host last season’s under-13 winners North East Stars at the Mahaica Oval in Point Fortin, beginning with the under-14s from 10 a.m., the under-16s from two p.m., and the under-18/reserves from four p.m.
“We are starting on Sunday and we will be ready,” said PFC technical director and former Trinidad and Tobago standout Steve David. “The guys look really good. They are ready to play and are all pretty excited. But we don’t know what to expect. Until we get a feel of the league and know what it’s like, only then I’d have an idea on how well we would do.”
Also tomorrow, last season’s under-15 and under-17 winners St. Ann’s Rangers will host San Juan Jabloteh in the under-14, under-16 and under-18/reserve divisions, at Trinity College ground in Moka. Last season, Jabloteh represented Defence Force at all youth levels, finishing runners-up in the under-13 and under-17 divisions and third among the under-15s.
Police and W Connection will do battle in all divisions at the St. James Barracks ground, while Caledonia will tackle Central FC in the under-16 and under-18/reserve divisions at the Valtrin Recreation Ground in Valsayn.
