The Football Association in partnership with the VG Football Committee, Speedy’s Ferry Service, CCT and Mr Nice Guy was hailed as a great success by organizers, players, and spectators alike.
With off field entertainment provided by Mr. Walkie of Black Sage Management and on field excitement created by exhibition games between U13’s, U15’s and Women’s team representing Tortola and Virgin Gorda as well as the BVI All Stars against the SVG All Stars the large crowd thoroughly enjoyed themselves and had no hesitation in joining in with the FA’s efforts to add monies to the St Vincent Volcano Relief Fund.
“We had a lot of kids turn out and every game was well attended.” commented FA Executive Member, Mr Craig Grant who had spearheaded the event for the FA Competition Committee and been the liaison with those on Virgin Gorda who had done much of the groundwork and on short notice. “Everything turned out really good and everyone involved needs our thanks. The Coaches too, for putting the teams together and the Match Officials, everyone.” Grant concluded.
Whilst the final sum raised has yet to be calculated, for the record, Jadon Abrams and Kyle Farrington scored to give VG the U15’s a 2-0 victory and the Women battled to a 0-0 draw, whilst the BVI All Stars wee indebted to a 75th minute goal from National Team Goalkeeper, Phillip Graham, playing up front, for a 1-0 win.
