Junior Elite 3V3 League Launch
The Junior Elite 3V3 League – in association with CO Technique, kicked off amid pomp and fanfare on Thursday 28th February with 24 U11’s and U12’s who impressed in the trials held a week earlier, competing in squads of six each in four uniquely named teams representing former Junior Elite players.
The teams are:
a) Wan-Bissaka Wanderers named after Aaron Wan-Bissaka (Crystal Palace)
b) Smith-Rowe Rangers named after Emile Smith-Rowe (Arsenal)
c) Blackman Rovers named after Jamal Blackman (Chelsea)
d) Djilali United named after Kieran Djilali (Crystal Palace)
Special guests included Premier League players Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace) and Ryan Sessegnon (Fulham) both formerly coached by Colin Omogbehin – Chairman & Founder of Junior Elite.
To inspire the boys there was an amazing performance by @Rebazfreestyle, a Professional Football freestyler and a Guinness World Record Holder.
We were privileged to have in attendance Deputy Cllr Niroshan Sirisena – Croydon Cabinet member for Culture, Leisure & Sport.
Also in attendance was one of our sponsors, Kala Sports.
The event was filmed by Fulham FC and @RootzTV.
The Launch went spectacularly well and the boys have exciting midweek football to look forward to until 30th May 2019.
Before our very eyes we will all witness their transformations as they progress both in techniques and tactics.
