A 13-year-old from Antigua and Barbuda and a 16-year-old from Trinidad and Tobago bested their peers at home and across the Caribbean to emerge as winners of the Flow and Manchester United Ultimate Football Experience. The initiative, in it’s freshman year, was endorsed by the Caribbean Football Union (CFU).
Antiguan Ronaldo Flowers and Trinidadian Che Benny, after making the cut to advance to round two from their respective in-country clinics, won the coveted prize of an-all expense trip to Old Trafford and to witness Manchester United’s final match of the season against Crystal Palace. The players were accompanied by their parents and coaches.
The final clinic in Trinidad had participation from 30 young footballers – two each from the 15 Caribbean territories where Flow operates – as well as their coaches to train with coaches from the Manchester United Soccer School. This followed round one clinics in all the countries which, at each stop, was attended by scores of male and female footballers between the ages of 13 and 16.
The CFU, which endorsed the initiative, was represented in Trinidad by Third Vice-President Lyndon Cooper.
