The Seventh Edition of the Edward ‘Screw’ Richmond U18 Secondary Schools’ Football tournament was launched Monday in the Boardroom of LEN’s Building.
According to Organizing Secretary James Craig, the 2015 tournament started before but due to certain constraints they were forced to call a halt to the tournament. “This Organization is a Non Profit Organization and the reason why we had to stop it before was the fee structure. The referees wanted $7,000 per game and that was too much for a tournament that is not bringing in money at the gates.”
According to Craig all these issues had to be ironed out and after correspondence back and forth to the Guyana Football Federation they were given a revised fee of $5,000.
Craig also noted that all the previous matches played are now null and void so in fact it is a new tournament. He also mentioned that in the previous tournaments there was one group now they are two groups with four teams in each group. He noted that the scholarship programme that was on the back burner will come on stream this year. “I want to ask teachers to select one person from your team who is well rounded academically and on the field and in the fourth form for consideration. That means that child CXC fees will be paid by the organization thus taking the burden off the parents and who knows it may not end at CXC it may go on to University once potential is there.”
All games will be played at the Wisburg Ground with the exception of the final which will be played at the MSC ground. The tournament began April 14th and ends May 07th.
Defending Champions Christianburg Wismar Secondary School is in Group A with Harmony Secondary, Linden Foundation High and Linden Technical Institute and in Group B are New Silvercity Secondary School, McKenzie High School, Wisburg Secondary and M.C’s Educational Institute.
