East Ruimveldt Secondary School football team yesterday received a timely boost
made possible through overseas based Guyanese Nigel Whyte.
At a simple ceremony held yesterday at the school, Whyte’s aunt Gloria Gray-Eastman presented a quantity of football boots, jerseys, balls and gloves to head teacher Selwyn Browne.
Eastman who was instrumental in the venture informed that it was made on behalf of the Cross Fire FC of Washington DC, USA where Whyte now coaches.
Eastman added that she is interested in sports development at the institution and follows the team closely, stating that she is happy to contribute towards their development. While indicating that she is pleased with the team’s performance in the current MILO tournament so far, Eastman urged the students to take the sport seriously as well as their education and wished them well in the future.
Browne expressed gratitude to Whyte and Eastman, and gave the assurance that the gears will be put to good use. He pointed out that while the players are talented they are willing to work hard for their success, this he said was evident in their 2-1 win over a strong St. Winifred School in the Milo U20 competition recently.
The school will take on Tucville in their next game today at the Ministry of Education ground.
