The Milerock Football Club last Thursday concluded its Summer Camp for Under 17 players with a pep talk at the Bayrock Community Centre ground.
According to a release from the club yesterday, the club’s future players were given a brief talk by Head Teacher of the Christianburg/Wismar Secondary School, Cleveland Thomas who spoke of how sport can benefit the players during their school career.
He told them about the dangers of drugs and what being disciplined youths could bring them in their future careers.
According to the release, the players listened attentively as coach Claude Williams conducted the final sessions with them at the ground they use as their home turf.
Milerock is one of Linden’s top clubs and represented Guyana earlier this year in the Caribbean Football Union club championships after finishing number two in the National Football Club Championship last year.
By playing in the CFU Club championships, Milerock became the first Linden team to reach the second round where they were beaten by Trinidad and Tobago’s Defence Force after knocking out Suriname’s Inter Moengatope in the first round of the home-and-away championship.
