Talented borough footballers picked up prizes and took part in action-packed matches

Brent’s most famous footballer Raheem Sterling may be chasing World Cup glory with England in Russia, but the next generation of the districts footballers attended an awards fun day at Capital City Academy.

Since the borough was formed in 1965, a number of famous footballing talents have been developed in Brent, including Cyrille Regis, Stuart Pearce and Rachel Yankey.

The event started with a squad photo of the teams all together, followed by a number of action-packed games that saw plenty of skill and talent.

Veteran Brent coach Keith Young and former councillor Zaffar Van Kalwala, who founded the Brent Super Cup, were in attendance at the event as special guests.

The awards recognised the traditional honours of golden boot and player of the season, but also acknowledged other qualities including most improved player, best contribution to the team and best attitude.

“It was great to see so many young people having fun and playing,” said Brent Schools FA chairman Chris Ampofo.

“Brent is a really special borough and it is a great honour to play for Brent.

“It was important to recognise their efforts and also thank the volunteers and parents who support the teams.

“It was a great day and with the World Cup on we are already looking forward to and planning for next season.”
