MFA President Norman Darmanin Demajo paid a visit to the Gozo Football Association for the official presentation of the UEFA Solidarity Funds for Youth Development to the Nurseries forming the Gozo Youth FA. The Gozo Youth FA also benefited from these Funds. The presentation took place in the presence of the President of the Gozo Football Association Alvin Grech and the President of the Gozo Youth FA Paul Galea.
This was the first time that UEFA Funds were being addressed directly to the Clubs to support the initiatives for the improvement of the Nurseries.
The MFA President in a speech insisted on the importance to continue with the current momentum to establish appropriate infrastructure for all the clubs to provide a sound foundation for the improvement of the game. Once the infrastructure is in place the association can look forward to introduce training for more qualified Coaches who can develop the skills in the children from a young age.
Mr. Darmanin Demajo warned all the Nurseries to make appropriate use of all the funds being provided by UEFA because this aid is for the benefit of all those who have the passion for football.
The MFA President also presented Kits and Technical Equipment provided by FIFA to the Gozo Girls U/16 Team. He remarked about the growth of the Women’s football and noted with pleasure the improvement registered by the Gozitan Team in the National Competitions.
