    People say whatsoever they want without having the adequate knowledge or information > they tend to ust believe things that they hear and even some things that they seeeeeeeee which are merely deception.
    Footabll in my mouth…a sport without brains( oh so they think ) but newtown people not foolish at all. IN time to come all secrets will be exposed and things will come back to normal and all fakes will be brought before the proper authorities.

    I KNOW what Im talking about !

    Its no wander when there are activities of the academy the newtown savannah does be empty because newtown kids are not fully involved.

    There need to be a commisiion of investigations of the finances and organisation and management of that academy.

    I really hear some person on the matt show and also talking points rapping about problems in newtown football.

    its a blasted shame !

    When one takes a good look at the so called Newtown Juvenile Football Academy one recognises that its ONLY a very small number of NEWTOWN kids who actually are enrolled in its programme.

    The founders of the academy example Joffre Faustin and sponsor Julius Timothy did not intended it to have been so. Evertime I drive pass one the Newtown savanah I see so many young Harlem boys playing football and many of them are not enrolled in the academy. I was told that the fees have been doubled and it now stands at $20.00 per month and many economically stressed out parents from the community are not able to meet such fees , coupled with uniform, boots, pants, hose, sheen pads etc. Its only parents from newtown who are better positioned financially whose kids are in the academy and many of these parents are defiitely not paying any attention to the levels of discrimination directed against Newtown boys ! Its shameful that our savannah and human resources is being exploited to train boys who will be competeing against Harlem football in the not too distant future.
    Is it a commercial academy ! Is it about attracting bourgeoise children and making friends with the upper class in the society? Enough is enough! its time for newtown people to stand up against this public deception ? Theyre being used and exploited! When last was any financial report given to parents whose kids are enrolled in the academy ? Where is the monies going to ?
    WHO IS DOING THE AUDITING or better still is any independent auditing of the books being done ? Is the staff being paid and if so how much and why ?How much money does the academy get from its corporate sponsor and do they issue the said sponsor(s) a proper report as per the use of the said finance ? Clearly the intention to set up the academy was a commendable one but the current managers seemed to have drifted from the original intent and that is to maintain the supremacy of Harlem Football, improve the quality, interests and standards of the game in the community and this will in advertently help develop and improve the sport of football nationally. One all the fronts this management body of the academy has failed astronomically .
