SPORTS REPORTER, DHAKA

Bangladesh District and Divisional Football Association (BDDF) will continue to keep its effort to find out and develop quality footballers. And from this point of view the BDDF successfully completed their first mission by organising Sheikh Kamal Under-20 National Football Championship recently.

The secretary general of BDDF Tarafdar Ruhul Amin officially completed the task of a successfully organised Sheikh Kamal Under-20 Tournament when he distributed prize money among the champions ad runners-up teams at a function in the capital yesterday. Champions Rajshahi Division received Taka 1,20 lac while runners-up Khulna Division won the Taka 72,000.

Tarafdar Amin, while addressing the gathering said that their main object to pave the way for providing players to local clubs and ultimately they (players) will be grown as national team players to meet the present crisis of enough quality players in the country.

Tarafdar also explained their future plan with the players they collected from the Sheikh Kamal tournament that they have high performance training in home and abroad to train up them enough to play in the local teams and to represent the national side.

Tarafdar said, “Our focus is not for near future but to organise a long term training programme for the age group players, who will met up the demands of quality players of the clubs and the national teams.”

“In our initial programme we started for the Under-20, then we will do it for from Under-18 and Under-16 age groups. Here, we stored 53 booters after a final selection from the Sheikh Kamal Under-20 tournament when we started the agenda from the upazila and then district level and we got 240 players after preliminary selection and then we short listed 144 from eight divisions and after the final selection we made it 53 for high performance training.”

Tarafdar, who is also the chairman of the football committee of Chittagong Abahani Limited, said, “We will begin the high performance residential training programme with this 53 players from July and it will continue up to December 2019 in Chottogram.

“From the 53 players’ training camp, 35 to 40 players will have the opportunity to get the final high performance training in abroad in January 2020. Before that players will play two matches with foreign teams and four matches against any of the Bangladesh Premier Division teams.” The finally selected players have already signed a five year contract with the BDDF. Under the agreement the local premier clubs will have to pay certain per cent of signing money to BDDF.

Tarafdar also advised the players to be sincere to their training and to build up themselves for bright future not to thinking about the interest of near future.

Former national footballers Sheikh Mohammed Aslam, Imtiaz Sultan Jony and Hassanuzzaman Bablu also attended the prize giving ceremony.
