Junior Gaur Kyle Gaspar in the spotlight after superb performance in Junior Gaurs League.
Junior Gaur Kyle Gaspar was felicitated with the Player of the Tournament award following his performance in the recently concluded Junior Gaurs U-10 league organised by FC Goa. Competing against 882 other players, Kyle and his team, comprised of Sunshine School pupils, shone bright after a tough tournament. The youngster skippered his team to the finals, scoring twice and assisting another in the ultimate match to help his team overturn a deficit and clinch the title. The youngster scored 12 times and provided the maximum number of assists to win this top laurel. On the pitch, it was hard not to marvel at his clinical finishing, pin-point crossing and great understanding of the game.
An avid lover of the sport from his early school days, the youngster didn’t have too many opportunities to showcase his talent due to the general lack of tournaments in his age group. The Junior Gaurs League was the first major tournament for Kyle and he grabbed the opportunity with both hands.
“This was a well organised tournament and it was great to see so much involvement by the parents as well! With respect to my son, as a parent, I will support him and encourage him to pursue whatever he wants to.” proclaimed a clearly delighted Roy Gaspar, Kyle’s father and constant supporter.
He adds, with immense hope, “It is very early but I would like to see Kyle represent the country some day. For this, he needs to be consistent with the hard work. I will always be there to support him with this.” For the youngster, it will be back to the training ground where he will be coached under the tutelage of qualified and experienced coaches in order to hone his skill and help him reach the next level.
