East End Lions central defender Ibrahim Kabba who is fondly known as Tarribo has provided support to young lads of Ernifty Football Foundation with 100 face masks and some food condiments at the Carlton Community in the Western Area, Freetown.
Whilst presenting the items to the young potential football players the Carlton Community, Kabba said it reminded him of his own past when he started playing football as a kid at the Carlton grounds when things were difficult. Kabba added that giving to his community at this time means a lot especially when football in the country is at a standstill.
He advised that even if they want to take up football professionally, they should take education very serious and would become the likes of Mohamed Kallon, Kei Kamara and others.
One of the objectives of Ernifty Football Foundation is a newly-established body to develop young stars to play for bigger clubs in the country and elsewhere and to guide them on their academic work.
Among some of the personalities was Musa Conteh former Captain of the Carlton Community Team. She informed her audience to become great footballers by following the instructions of their coaches and having respect for elderly persons in society.
She explained that as a former captain for the Carlton Community “it was difficult for us when playing but if you want to succeed you must have the vision to play in bigger arenas and to even represent Sierra Leone,” Musu said.
