THE Giuseppe Football Club (GFC) won the Mixed U-11 Category in the 2nd Eagles Football Festival at the Dynamic Herb Borromeo Stadium, besting 28 other teams on May 4, 2024.

Fernando Imanol “Mino” Larrañaga, GFC’s U-11 goalkeeper who pulled a save in the final, was hailed as the Most Valuable Player.

“This win is a testament to the hours of training and the passion these young players have for the game. Every player contributed to this win. Together, we’ve built more than just a winning team, we have built a family that supports and pushes each other to be the best we can be,” said GFC head coach Hayato Ayabe.

Ayabe, a Japanese national, is no stranger to the local football community, having been actively coaching and playing since 2001.

GFC’s U7, U9 and U13 teams also had a respectable showing and made the semifinal round.

Joining Ayabe, who coaches for U-9 and U-11, in the roster of GFC coaches are Reeve Andre Sumayod (U-13), Maki Mamac (U-15 and U-7), Evan Abad (U-17), and assistant coach Dianne Gaviola.
