JUCOAG president welcomes GFA colts support package


The Ghana Football Association’s (GFA) recent support package for colts clubs has been met with cautious optimism by the Juvenile Club Owners Association of Ghana (JUCOAG) President, Selasie Glover.

GFA President Kurt Okraku announced the initiative during the National Juvenile Committee’s inaugural meeting on Thursday (28 March).

The package includes new footballs, trophies for regional champions, and, crucially, opportunities for top performers to trial for the national U-17 and U-15 teams. Coach capacity building is also included but with limitations.

Glover, while applauding the direction, expressed concern about its reach. “I think it is a good step,” he told Asaase Online in an exclusive interview. “We hope that it gets to the district level; that is the broader picture.”

His worry lies with the coach development programme, potentially excluding those who need it most. “Usually the clubs that will end up getting to the regional or national level will be clubs that already have coaches that have their capacity building or are already licenced coaches,” he explained.

“In the district level is where you have other clubs that are not really well to do but are trying to manage well to nurture some talents for Ghana. So at that level, we’ll still need capacity building for some of those coaches.”
