Thirty top schoolboy players, who participated in the ISSA/FLOW Super Cup 2017 competition, will have a rare and exciting opportunity to enhance their skills while interacting with some of the world’s top football coaches this weekend.

On Sunday the players will participate in the inaugural Flow Super Cup All-Star Coaching Clinic at the National Stadium.

The players will benefit from expert training and mentorship under the guidance of coaches from top English Premiere League Club - Manchester United who are scheduled to arrive in Jamaica on Friday.

Members of the public will have the opportunity to see their favourite players in action during a unique private game which will be streamed live online via Flow’s YouTube page starting at 3:00 pm on Sunday.

Carlo Redwood, VP Marketing at Flow, described the clinic as a developmental platform for both the players and local sports.

He said, “we’ve always emphasized our desire to provide greater development opportunities for aspiring footballers and we believe that this ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ opportunity to be guided by international top ranked coaches will prove to be a spectacular experience and will undoubtedly have a positive  personal impact.”

Players selected from that group are:  Benjamin Williams, Kenar Huntington, Demario Phillips and Nicque Daley of Clarendon College; Trey Bennett, Casseam Priestly, Renato Campbell and Trayvone Reid  of Kingston College; Norman Campbell and Tevin Rochester of  Jamaica College; Omar Clemiston, Nazine Matalie and Renaldo Wellington of Rusea’s High School; Tevin Rochester of Jamaica College and  Deandre McCoy of Calabar High School.
