Shamir Rall, Director of the Greater Portmore Football Club, restructured the club on April 1, 2022. He wanted to revive a community football team that had not played for more than 15 years. Through this club, people of all ages can participate and represent the community in the many events held by the St. Catherine Football Association. The formation of a club committee and registration with the St Catherine Football Association and Companies Office of Jamaica allowed the team to compete in the parish championships.
We decided to start the development process at the appropriate age, with individuals fifteen (15) years old and younger into the Academy program in accord with the Club’s motto “Developing Young Players the Right Way” Nonetheless, we also created a senior and an under-20 men’s team. The club Academy team trained all year long, enabling for growth.
The coaching staff recognized the team’s development and decided it was time to enter the under-15 competition held by the St Catherine Football Association. With the few resources the club possessed, we decided to find the right sponsor who would share our vision and aim of entering these young men into competitions, so they could show off their skills and have a chance to win.
RSD Shipping Agency Limited was recommended, because they support community initiatives and give young people the chance to succeed. We contacted the Managing Director, Mrs. Sonia Clarke Bowen, she responded and agreed to sponsor our club. This allowed these young players the chance to participate in the tournament as well as pay our expenditure throughout the competition.
Greater Portmore FC won The St Catherine Football Association Under 15 Competition in 2023. It is with pride that we celebrate this momentous event which occurred because of this sponsorship. RSD Shipping Agency Limited has our sincere gratitude for their funding and commitment to allowing young people to express their talents.
