Two get AC Milan nod

Social Share

Torian Went of Harrison College and Antone Greaves of Christ Church Foundation School were the envy of over 100 young footballers at Kensington Oval yesterday when they were selected to attend the 2012 AC Milan Youth Camp in Italy.
The two were selected because of their performance and disposition during the inaugural one-week camp conducted in Barbados in conjunction with Pro Shottas Football Club.
One camper out of the 102 participants, including three players from Trinidad and Tobago, was supposed to be chosen but the three coaches were so impressed with Greaves and Went that both of them were chosen.
Two of the older footballers, Jessie Haynes and Akeem Maloney, were picked to go to a United States college next year.
Pro Shottas head coach Greg Castagne said that every attempt would be made to stage the camp next year in light of the keen response.
Giuseppe Vuono of AC Milan joined fellow Italian Montoya Wilma in praising the enthusiasm and skill of participants.
Vuono said that at the end of every camp they looked into the children’s eyes and they were happy with the positive response they saw in the eyes of the campers at Kensington.
The large number of parents and well-wishers who attended the camp and the closing ceremony was further evidence of its success.
