ILNOFA try out for U23, U19, and Mens Open

The following captions where taken during the try out, I forget some important information's which is the fact in the said try out. The try out was conducted by ILNOFA (Iligan-LanaoNorte Football Association) lead by Atty. Alex Macabangkit currently the president of ILNOFA and with the FA crew's. The ILNOFA and we the players are VERY THANKFUL indeed to Gov. Khalid Dimaporo for letting us use the MCC (Mindanao Civic Center) to conduct the said try out and soon to be the home base training ground for the ILNOFA Mens Open, U23 , U19, squads. In fact He let us use the provincial bus and gave us a ride back and forth for free from Iligan City to Tubod, Lanao del Norte. (sorry for being lazy though hehehe)
