The Malaya FC U13 squad emerged as Division 1 bronze medalist of the Speed Regalo Youth Football League 2nd leg Season 3. Playing for the team were four Ateneo Junior High School students: Craig Coronel (Montserrat/7-Harcourt), Aidan Aguirre (Cardoner/7-Andlauer), Zef Daquigan (La Storta/7-Collins), and Chico Zabella (La Storta/7-Colombiere). Malaya FC U13 fought harder than their opponents because they “played up” in a higher age category and competed in an 11-aside game. Spanning 11 weeks of highly-competitive football games, the YFL is one of the longest-running youth football club leagues in the country and one of the most prestigious.
