In a speech, the Chairman of the Sawla Tuna Kalba District Football Association, Mr Alhassan Rahman Nyariba made known the existence of the District Football Association which is geared towards bringing football opportunities to their doorsteps.
He reiterated that, the value they attach to formal education should be replicated for football because they are inseparable because the juvenile players registration requirement demands a child should be in School. He urged the Parents to help develop the football talent of their wards by encouraging and supporting them financially and spiritually just as the formal education. He cited an example of how a child can rise to the top as a talented player but weak in academics.
The Community and the stakeholders should strongly support the managers of the Taare Babies Football club to raise the image of the community and the District, he added.
