Sponsorship to boost Youngstars

THE Youngstars soccer club is aiming to climb to the super premier competition in the Rewa Football Association league by end of the season.

Formed in 2005, the club has been competing in the premier grade although it has faced financial difficulties for the past few years.

Club vice president Vashneel Nand said through the collective efforts of the executives and players, they were able to secure a sponsor last year.

"Early last year we began talks with FMF Foods Limited and by July we managed to finalise a one-year sponsorship deal," he said.

"We are very thankful to Leena Punja of FMF for supporting this club."

Nand said the sponsorship boost was enough to help them remain in the premier division last season.

"The goal was to help the team remain in the premier division which the management were able to do, as there was some financial difficulties until the club received the sponsor from FMF.

"This motivation enhanced the players skills on and off the field and now our aim this season is to do better.

"We want to move up to the super premier division. We know it will be a hard task but it can be achieved.

"A move up to the top level in the league would also help us extend the sponsorship deal."
