Dr. Blackman birthday 7-a-side football tournament to conclude Saturday
After delays due to the inclement weather the finals of the Dr. Noel Blackman birthday 7-a-side football tournament will be staged on Saturday at the Georgetown Football Club (GFC) Ground, Bourda.
Coordinator Lennox Arthur indicated that the event will be staged Saturday and football fans will be in for a treat. He noted that several of the teams will be represented by some of the more exciting players in the shorter form of the game. Some are also popular in the longer form of football.
Among those on show are Devon Millington, a known tormenter of any defence, Shawn Bishop, Shemroy Arthur and the exciting Shem Porter.
The action resumes from 5:00pm Saturday and the 12 remaining teams will battle in an eliminator for the top prize on offer. Their names will be randomly pulled from a bag and this process will continue until the final paring is determined.
The 12 teams contesting Saturday’s finals are; Mocha, Alexander Village, Sophia, North East LaPenitence, Broad Street, Pouderoyen, Grove, Lima Dam, Kuru Kururu, Timehri, Charlotte Street and Tiger Bay.
The winner will walk away with $100,000, while $50,000 goes to the runner-up along with the Dr. Blackman trophies.
