Minister of Sports wants to see more national teams developed

GIU – Minister with responsibility for Sports, the Honourable Colin Riley has made several recommendations to aid in the development of football in Montserrat.

Riley was speaking at the recent ‘Meeting of the Minds’ discussion held at the Lyme in Brades, in which he said “I believe we can look at the Sports programming variable in Montserrat by taking an assessment of several things which are value creating and which add to the sporting culture.”

“We need to put some more emphasis on the development of facilities, we should design and implement school and community based youth programmes, develop a culture of professional coaching, work on our referees and officials and it is absolutely important that we bring women into the game,” Riley suggested.

He went on to speak about the development of National teams which he said should be done by gender and age. “We must develop under 12, 15, 17 and 19 teams and that is the way we progress our young people from their very early engagement with the sport unto excellent, outstanding athletes who can defend Montserrat,” said Riley.
