TTFA Elite walked away with the Under 11 title during the Shaq Moore Youth Classic which was held at the Dwight Yorke Stadium from December 14-15. Titans earned second place, while Trendsetters Hawks locked in the third place spot. TTFA Elite’s players also made a clean sweep of the tournament’s special awards with Joshua Miguel earning “Most Goals” and “MVP” titles. Jeremiah Daniel was awarded “Best Defender”. In the Under 14 matches, Eagles emerged triumphant to lift the winners’ trophy. They were followed by Trendsetters in second place and the Coaching School team which finished third. Keanu Boatswain and Jediah Phillips, both of Eagles, were named “MVP” and “Best Defender” respectively. Meanwhile, Olando James skillfully secured the award for “Most Goals”. The event saw young footballers showcase their skills in the pursuit of glory. The Division of Sport and Youth Affairs proudly partnered with organisers and stakeholders to support the annual tournament, which provides a prime opportunity for youngsters to develop as athletes through competition. Teams from Trinidad and St. Vincent and the Grenadines also made the journey to Tobago to participate in the Classic. The initiative is the brainchild of Tobagonian former national footballer, Wendell Moore and his son, current player in the Segunda Division of La Liga, Shaquell “Shaq” Moore.  The two are intent on using the tournament to give back to Tobago, while positively contributing to the island’s sporting landscape.
