Long-time Negros football patron Ricky Yanson of Dynamic FC and Dynamic Football League (DFL) is the newly-elected president of the Negros Occidental Football Association (NOFA).
This was confirmed yesterday by NOFA General-Secretary Paulline Javelona following the association’s recent meeting.
Yanson has been the frontrunner of the successful staging of the age-group DFL, which has provided avenue for young aspiring football players from the grassroots.
Joining Yanson are San Carlos City Mayor Gerardo Valmayor Jr. as Vice President, and Board of Directors Junie Lizares (Minuluan FC), Raymando Baldava (Don Bosco FC), Mariano Antonio Cui III (San Carlos FC), Jose Ma. Sanson (Bago City FC), Augustine Rey Rivas (Kabankalan FC), Gerald Pornan (Ma-ao FC), and former president Charlie Cojuangco as honorary board member.
Javelona said the new set of officers will formally take office next month, with the general assembly scheduled January 30.
Meanwhile, the San Carlos City FC closed the year 2014 with a huge success after registering three titles in secondary girls’ futsal, secondary boys’ football, and tertiary men.
The secondary girls recently booked victory over the University of Negros Occidental-Recoletos during the Palarong Panlalawigan while the boys defeated La Castellana (Area V), 4-nil.
Meanwhile, the San Carlos collegiate team outplayed the West Visayas State College of Technology in the just-concluded Regional State Colleges and Universities Athletic Association meet played at the Carlos Hilado Memorial State College in Talisay City.
According to John Carmona, club’s technical director, more programs will be implemented next year particularly among the players and coaches to further strengthen the sports in San Carlos City./
