The Wings Youth Footballers contingent of fifteen (15) players left Antigua on Friday, August 13 for Tortola, BVI, to participate in an Invitational Tournament. The squad is accompanied by Head Coach, Thadeus Price, Asst. Coach, Lyndon Lawrence and Chaperone, Barbara Coates.

It is the first time that the Wings Youth Footballers will be venturing off-shores to engage in a major friendly invitational. The youngsters have been engaged earlier this year in the ABFA U-13 Football Program and a few friendly games against the Young Warriors Football Club.
The Wings Youth Footballers were originally programmed to participate in the AC Milan Football Tournament in Cleveland, Ohio, in July, but were unable to reach their financial target to do so, despite fund-raising and sponsorship. The Wings Youth Football Committee would like to convey special thank you to the Bank of Nova Scotia, Cary Holder of JBQ Wellness, and PWC, for their kind assistance. A full list of Sponsors will be published in a later issue of the CPTSA NewsLetter.
