Organisers of the Footy Promotions Youth Futsal League have hailed the event as a success.

As many as 100 youngsters participated among two age groups during the league, which ran from June 27 to August 15 with all matches held at the National Sports Centre.

“Footy Promotions Youth Futsal League was a fantastic event for young players,” Mark Wade, the Bermuda Football Association president, said. “Futsal is a tool that we hope more players will use to improve their technical skills.

“There was some great young players on display and the BFA look forward to continuing the partnership with Footy Promotions in 2022.”

Wade spoke after the end-of-season presentation on Sunday at the NSC which was also attended by Maurice Lowe, the BFA’s technical director.

Force Black won the 8-11 title with a team that comprised Samar Augustus, Tanaka Kunze, Darien Lambert, Cameron Porter, David Richard Augustus, Marcus Spencer, Isaac Todd and Gebre Vickers.

Todd was the division’s leading scorer with 21 goals, Aiden Jones earned the Best Goalkeeper Award, Dunstan De Sa the Most Valuable Player Award and Christian Phillips-Steede the Coach’s Player Award selected by visiting professional futsal player Jordan Deer.

Force Red Team won the 12-14 title with their team of Preston Bang, D’Ari Coddington, Janos Lindsay, Malik Paynter, Jai Simmons, Troy Washington and Rakeem Wilson.

Coddington was the division’s leading scorer with 26 goals, Damori Baxter earned the Best Goalkeeper Award, Paynter the Most Valuable Player Award and Harlem Bean-Fox the Coach’s Player Award.

Vinzie Zuill, the Footy Promotions president, said his organisation was “very pleased” to host the Youth Futsal League this summer.

“All participants in the Youth Futsal League showed their skills, teamwork and passion,” Zuill added. “It was a joy to watch.

“The league provided a positive environment for players to develop their skills through futsal. It was great to see over 100 players participate in the league in two age divisions.”

Zuill also congratulated Force Black and Force Red for winning their respective divisions.

“Both teams were very entertaining and scored some sizzling goals,” he said.

“Overall, it was really good to see players and teams improve, become sharper and compete each week.

“Thank you again to the Bermuda Football Association for your commitment to youth futsal as a tool for development.”
