The Edward ‘Screw’ Richmond Foundation, named in
honour of arguably one of Linden’s greatest footballers, has once again given out bursary awards to two of Linden’s brightest performers at this year’s National Grade Six Examinations.
Benefitting this year are Ms. Nkechi Layne, who sat the examinations while attending the Regma Primary School and obtained 521 marks, while another Regma Primary School pupil Ms. Azzarreya Allicock gained 518 marks and they are currently students at Queen’s College.
The yearly award once again supports the United States-based Foundation’s aim to continue to give back to Linden, not necessarily in the football arena for which they have established themselves with their annual Inter Secondary School Under-18 football championship, but in other areas of interest and endeavours for the people of Linden.
This Edward ‘Screw’ Richmond tournament has clearly aided in the development of the game at the school level, and more-so in promoting soccer where Linden now boasts the four-times Digicel National Secondary Schools Football Champions the Christianburg Wismar Secondary School, who incidentally are also the Edward ‘Screw’ Richmond Schools Champions.
Resident representative for the Edward ‘Screw’ Richmond Foundation, Mr. James Craig, handed over the bursary awards to the two top performers at the current Upper Demerara Football Association (UDFA) GT Beer championship which is being contested at the Mackenzie Sports Club ground.
Craig congratulated the two young lasses and encouraged them, to continue to make Linden proud.
