Kaieteur News – Former Prime Minister and City Mayor Hamilton Green will be celebrating his 88th birthday today November 9th.
Former National football player and Coach and also Coordinator of the Mayor’s Cup Committee, Lennox Arthur, who has organised a football tournament in Green’s honour over the years, is extending birthday wishes to Green on behalf of the Committee and all well wishers. Arthur disclosed that as was usually done in the past an Inter Ward/Village football tournament commemorating Mr. Green’s birthday will be held next January.
Attempts to play that tournament was last made in 2019 but had to be scrapped due to the advent of the covid-19 pandemic.
Arthur disclosed that the tournament has been fixed for January 28th to March 12th and will involve teams out of Georgetown, East Bank, West Demerara and Berbice.
This event has been staged under Prime Minister’s Cup and Mayor’s Cup for over 30 years and will now return as the Hamilton Green Cup to honour this former Guyanese politician and official.
Arthur noted that teams have a few months to get in gear…but with yearend football tournament of a similar format in the wind…the action coming out of this tournament promises to be exciting as players will be in top shape after the yearend event being supported by the President Dr Irfaan Alli himself and government.
Arthur has lauded the many sponsors that have supported him over the years and is again soliciting their support along with new sponsors to come on board for this next event.
