Makati Football Club’s (MFC) Girls U14 will have a silver medal to show from its international debut in the Singapore International Youth Cup, validating a program that aims to unearth future stars from the grassroots.

The young girls yielded to Australia’s Northern New South Wales, 1-0, in the final. It was a sorry loss for MFC Girls U14, composed of provincial footballers, which defeated the same team, 2-1, in the group stage.

The girls also beat Fremantle, 2-1, and Football West, 5-0.

“We wish that one day we will be able to align our program with the national federation so we can … help develop our local athletes to give them better opportunities to maximize their potential,” said coach SeLu Lozano, Makati FC chief.
