The Goa Football Development Council (GFDC) distributed full kit to 120 trainees from Cortalim Football Development Centre at the hands of Aleixo da Costa, Member Secretary GFDC and Dr. Rufino Monteiro, Chairman of GFDC. Present at the function was Parish Priest of Cortalim, Fr. Diogo Fernandes.

Speaking on the occasion Aleixo da Costa appreciated the coaches for their continuous efforts being put in. “If you work hard you will get a chance to become the best footballer and one day play for the International team. If you’ll play well you’ll can become famous like Mandar Rao Desai and Romeo Fernandes,” he said.

Dr. Rufino Monteiro expressed pleasure in seeing young children in football attire provided by GFDC. “All the players will not become the best footballers but by playing every day you will keep good health and become good citizen of this country. This centre has been opened recently and I have known that this centre is doing pretty good,” uttered Dr. Rufino.

The P.E Teacher, Leroy proposed the vote of thanks for the day.
