Ronaldo Flowers and Shaquan Telemaque emerged winners from a group of 70 talented male and female young footballers at the FLOW Ultimate Football Experience skills competition held at the Antigua Recreation Ground (ARG).  
Flowers and Telemaque will travel to Trinidad & Tobago in May, along with their parents and coach, for a two-day skills session with Caribbean Football Union (CFU) and Manchester United Soccer School coaches.
They will then compete against duos from 14 other Caribbean countries for the ultimate prize. The final top two winners from the region will travel to the world-famous Theatre of Dreams to witness first-hand Manchester United’s final Premier League game of the season, against Crystal Palace.
This VIP experience will also include a visit to the Manchester United Museum taking in the history of the club followed by a tour of the iconic stadium.
Cable and Wireless’ Country Manager, Joe Mathieson, warmly welcomed the participants and presented trophies to the two talented teens. 
In his remarks to the teens, the country manager stated, “You are the future of football in Antigua & Barbuda, in the Caribbean, and in the World. Flow supports you all the way. We wish you the best today and for the rest of the competition.”
He reiterated the company’s continued commitment to the sport as evident by its sponsorship of the Old Road Football Club and Cable and Wireless’ global partnership with Manchester United.
Also on hand to address the youngsters was the country’s Minister of Sports, EP Chet Greene who congratulated Flow on the initiative aimed at improving the skills of Antigua & Barbuda’s Young Footballers.
The minister remarked, “The Government of Antigua and Barbuda very readily and proudly identifies with this initiative which caters to the athletic development of 70 of our young footballers.”
The minister also encouraged Flow to make this an annual event and pledged the government’s continued support.
Gordon Derrick, president of the Caribbean Football Union, and Everton Gonsalves, president of the local football association, were among the other football executives present to witness this first-of-its-kind competition.
In congratulating Flow and Manchester United, the president of the CFU indicated that it was an easy decision for his organisation to endorse the initiative by Flow and Manchester United.
 The president said, “The Flow Ultimate Football Experience brings another exciting element to the football calendar across the 15 countries where Flow operates.”
He noted that the creative event supports the training and development of the region’s young footballers while helping to enhance their skills as it aims to build passion among the participants.
