Black Starlets manager Laryea Kingston has heaped praises on the KGL Foundation for their massive contribution to the development of Colts (juvenile) football in the country.

The former Black Stars winger has revealed that the KGL Foundation Under-17 Regional Tournament has significantly aided his selection of players into the national Under-17.

Speaking after his side’s impressive outing against Ivory Coast in the opening game of the WAFU Zone B U17 Championship, Laryea underscored the significance of the KGL Foundation tournament.

“Thanks to KGL Foundation for their massive support. When I got to the country, I was lucky they had partnered with the GFA to develop a tournament that brings together our best Under-17 Colts players; and trust me, this particular group of players have about 8  players from the KGL Foundation tournament,” Laryea said after the game.

“So, for me the journey started very early and we are grateful to the GFA and KGL Foundation for their massive assistance,” he added.

The KGL Foundation is the official sponsor of Colts (juvenile) football in Ghana, investing an unprecedented $1m (one million United States dollars) covering a five-year period.
