GFA Salutes National U14 Boys Team  

PR – The Grenada Football Association (GFA) salutes the National U14  Boys team and coaching staff for their passion and determination in the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) U14 Boys Challenge Series. The team played their final two (2) matches in the tournament  on Wednesday and Thursday (August 17 & 18), losing 4-1 to St.Lucia and 8-0 to Martinique, the  latter match seeing Grenada being plagued by injuries. 

In the match against St.Lucia, Raheem Raeburn was Grenada’s goal scorer in the 31st minute of  play. 

Outstanding players during the tournament were goalkeeper Neon Smart who delivered some  amazing saves, Raheem Raeburn, Delron John, Taneil Morain and Izion Frazer. 

In applauding the entire team, President of the GFA Marlon Glean said, “This is a development  tournament and an introduction to international football. The Challenge Series provided some  solid experience for the team. They see where they are now and the work they have to put in to  go further. We salute them for representing Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique.” 

Speaking at the end of Grenada’s Challenge Series campaign, Head Coach of the U14 National Team Tyron ‘Pele’ John said, “I am pleased to see how the young stars gave their all in this  tournament despite the challenges. We learnt a lot as a team and the coaching staff is willing to  come back home and work with the players to reach our goal as a nation.  

The CFU Challenge Series serves as an introduction to international competition while allowing  youth players to work on their overall game and deportment.
