65 juvenile players selected in
Juaso (Ash), Feb 1, GNA – The Ashanti Regional Football
Association (RFA) has selected 65 juvenile players in the
Under 14 and 17 categories at a “Justify your Inclusion”
exercise at Juaso in the Asante-Akim South District.
In the highly patronised exercise, 37 players were selected
for the Under 14 division with the remaining 28 for the
Under 17 category.
Over 300 players from all parts of the District who
converged at the Juaso Secondary/Technical School Park were
offered the opportunity to justify their inclusion.
Mr Asare Lartey, Regional Football Development Officer, who
briefed the GNA Sports after the exercise, said it formed
part of a four-year development plan of the Ghana Football
Association (GFA) to unearth talents at the grassroots.
He said the selected players would further be pruned down at
the Winneba Sports College, adding that the remaining
players would be groomed to ensure sustainable supply of
players to the various national teams.
Mr Lartey said that a similar exercise would soon be
organised to select ladies under the Plan and commended the
District Assembly for its immense involvement in the
organising the exercise.
