I Movement Promotion & Eddie in Collaboration with Conrad St Romain in an effort to promote health and wellness through sports, social and cultural interaction will be hosting the St Romain 10th Annual Memorial Games during the period Sun 30th July to Tue 1st August 2017 at the Fitzburg Community Center Sports Ground, Port Kaituma, North West District, Region 1.
The main feature will be a football tournament involving 8 teams from various locations in the Region 1 area. Matthews Ridge, Mabaruma, Maruka, Port Kaituma, Hosororo, Sebai, 5 Star and Arakaka will all be represented on this glorious occasion, a release from the organisers informed.
The winning team is expected to receive $1000 USD, 2nd place $500USD and 3rd place $250USD.
Among the sponsors supporting the event are the Chinese & Daughter General Store, Les General Store, Ronaldo Barber Shop, C/S General Store & Boutique, Payne Guinness Bar, Johnny Philis & Craig Transportation Services, Sandy’s Transportation Service, Odessa Boutique, Dallo, Rallo Mining, Simone Boutique and Red Neck Groceries.
Organiser I Salam believes that with this type of promotion lots of talent will be unearthed in the North West District. He further went on to say that the Indigenous Community has lots of talent and with football being played on a regular basis and at a high level the players will develop their individual skills, talent and technique. I Salam also noted that his Organisation is in line with the principles of the GFF of promoting football throughout Guyana.
Meanwhile, President Wayne Forde of the Guyana Football Federation has donated a number of footballs towards the success of the tournament and has strongly endorsed the playing of organized football in the outlying districts. President Forde, who is expected to be present in Port Kaituma during the period, emphasized that the vision of the GFF is to have football played regularly in the far reaching communities and he thanked the Organisers for hosting such a massive promotion which will see teams travelling miles across rough terrain just to be present. This, the President noted, makes football the most passionate sport in the world, with hundreds of thousands of dollars being spent in the Organising of such events.
The Ministry of Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs has recently appointed a Sports Organiser to assist the Indigenous Communities in Organising Sports and these types of activities are in keeping with the vision and projection of the Ministry of Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs and the GFF to ensure that the outlying and remote districts are kept intact with sports and football development.
On Sunday July 30, action opens from 4:30pm with Moruka vs 5 Star, to be followed at 6:00pm by Mabaruma vs Sebai, then at 7:30pm P. K. United vs Arakaka and Matthews Ridge vs Hosororo in the nightcap.
The respective winners collide in the semis on Monday 31, while the third place and final games are set for Tuesday August 1 from 7:00pm.
There will be a march past of all participating teams before the commencement of the Tournament. GFF President, Mr Wayne Forde is expected to be in attendance.
