Dig­i­cel Kick­start Presents Op­por­tu­nity of a Life­time

The Star (St. Lucia) - - COMMENT -

The Dig­i­cel Kick­start pro­gramme, which gives young foot­ballers a chance to nur­ture and hone their skills, is giv­ing Jervel To­bierre and Ny­rone Win­ter an op­por­tu­nity of a life­time – to rep­re­sent Saint Lu­cia at the Dig­i­cel Kick­start Ex­pe­ri­ence in Manch­ester, Eng­land.

While in Manch­ester, the boys will un­dergo a se­ries of in­tense train­ing, ob­ser­va­tions and sem­i­nars as well as a com­pre­hen­sive as­sess­ment the play­ers' phys­i­cal, men­tal and psychological strengths. The week-long itin­er­ary in­cludes ses­sions on nu­tri­tion, on­line devel­op­ment from the Foot­ball Squad, per­for­mance test­ing, per­for­mance anal­y­sis and vir­tual re­al­ity ses­sions in ad­di­tion to in­ter­ac­tions with the me­dia.

Jervel To­bierre, who hails from the tran­quil com­mu­nity of Des­ruis­seaux, spoke of his prepa­ra­tion thus far for Manch­ester. He said; “The pro­gramme has taught me a num­ber of things to help im­prove my game. Through strength train­ing at the gym, I have in­creased my over­all body strength and I've also im­proved men­tally through my club coach and men­tor, Cal­lus Moncherry, who has struc­tured my train­ing sched­ule to have me in peak con­di­tion in Manch­ester.”

Ny­rone Win­ter, in speak­ing about his prepa­ra­tion for this amaz­ing op­por­tu­nity said; “Af­ter re­turn­ing from Ja­maica, I won Sports­man of the Year and Footballer of the Year of my grad­u­at­ing class and can hon­estly say the Dig­i­cel Kick­start pro­gramme played a ma­jor role. With the sup­port of my fam­ily and train­ing with the St Lu­cia na­tional coaches, I will be ready for Manch­ester both phys­i­cally and men­tally – I can't wait.”

Dig­i­cel St Lu­cia Mar­ket­ing and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Ex­ec­u­tive, Louise Vic­tor, said; “This is un­doubt­edly a big deal for the pro­gramme, the kids and Saint Lu­cia. From the on­set dur­ing our lo­cal clin­ics, Jervel and Ny­rone demon­strated great poise and over­all ma­tu­rity and now it's pay­ing div­i­dends. Many thanks to Manch­ester City FC for the op­por­tu­nity – the boys are tak­ing full ad­van­tage of it.”

Jervel To­bierre and Ny­rone Win­ter head off to Eng­land in the hopes of im­prov­ing their skill set in the in­ter­na­tional foot­ball hub, Manch­ester.
