The 2015 edition of the annual Hilbert “Old Beef” Humphrey Inter school U15 football tournament got on the way on Tuesday at the All Saints Scotts Church ground on Princess Elizabeth Road in New Amsterdam, Berbice. This is the 18th year that the competition is being played.
One of two scheduled matches was played. The first scheduled encounter between Berbice High School (BHS) and New Amsterdam Multilateral (NAMS) was not played since NAMS failed to show up giving BHS a walk over. In the one game that was played Vryman’s Erven Secondary (VESS) needled Tutorial Academy Secondary School (TASS) 1-0 with Aaron Hunte netting in the 48 minute.
The competition will continue on Friday with semi final play when Berbice Educational Institute (BEI) will take on BHS and Canje Secondary School meet VESS. Both matches will be played at the Scott Church ground.
The final is set for next Tuesday at the same venue.
The late ‘Beef’ Humphrey was an ardent sports fan with several of his children representing Berbice at football and other sports. Some are still actively involved in promoting the further development of the sport in Berbice.
The coordinator is former national player Neil “Grizzly” Humphrey and he is being assisted by former national Kenrick Bowrey. The top two teams will be presented with trophies and medals.
Outstanding individual players will be presented with medals and other tokens. (Samuel Whyte)
