The Green Archers are set to announce the completion of a state of the art youth development grounds and will be the home of the Junior Archers starting next season. The training ground is to be called “Campo Verde” or Camp Green and is 100,000 square meters big. Green Archers owner Jimbo spearheaded the project and said that the camp will try to bring in and train highly touted youth prospects of all ages.

“Campo Verde will be the battle grounds of the up and coming youngsters of the Archers. It’s a battle ground, since many youngsters in the Philippines want to be part of the team but we have limited spots.” Archers owner Jimbo told AP

“A big investment was put into this project but it will be worth it. We are not expecting immediate results but we are patient. We are planning ahead since we have a lot of veteran players this term.” he added

Notes: The Archers are currently in first place ahead of MAAP, Scape United, and Blue Wave FC. The Archers are the first team in the Philippines to build such a facility and will also train the U-20 National Team.

Newly acquired Dutch midfielder, Isaac Verhassel, is showering praise on his teammate Alfredo Varela.

“I have seen his goals and how he plays. he is a true legend in this club and the country. I have seen him play for the country in an international level. Of course he has lost some of his youthful legs but he can be very dangerous in important matches. He is the team’s leader, and everyone here respects him.” The Archers number 2 said to AP

Notes: Isaac Verhassel has scored 12 times for the Archers in the UFL this term, the most in the league after 12 matches. Comedian Joey De Leon and Vic Sotto was spotted in attendance. Varela started on the bench and was subbed in after the hour mark.

Green Archers’ talisman forward, Alfredo Varela, told Archer Pride that the team is very happy with their performances and are aiming for nothing but the league title. The 33 year old forward is saying that this is the closest to the championship that he has ever been and is savoring every moment. 

“The team is very good this term. Verhassel, Sheng, and Sand have been a great boost for the squad and nothing but a championship would be enough for us.” Varela told AP.

“I must thank Jimbo and the staff for bringing in great talent to help the team and bring success to the Archers. The fans deserve this and the city deserves this.” he added
