Fruta Conquerors U-20 and Georgetown Football Club (GFC), two teams that have high quality youth players, will go head-to-head for championship honours in the Turbo Energy Drink Football tournament on Sunday at the Ministry of Education ground, Carifesta Avenue.

On Friday, Petra Organisation held a press briefing for the two finalists and it was little words said by players and coach.

Conquerors U-20 Head Coach, Wayne St. Jules: “We are not underrating GFC; it is a good team. From what I saw, they have been playing good football, but we are coming with our A-Game and I hope they come with a triple A because we are coming all ‘guns’ blazing.”

GFC Head Coach, Dellon Cadogan: “I think the victory will go to the team with least mistakes. From time to time we having been working to make the least mistakes because as you know in a final there is no room for mistakes. Let’s leave the talking for the field and let’s watch football to the highest.”

GFC Captain, Kelsey Benjamin: “Sunday won’t be an easy game because we are coming against old teammates, schoolmates. We play together and know each other and it won’t be easy, so may the best team win.”
