A good old fashioned battle royale on the football pitch, and all for a good cause.
Monday night (1 February), new life was breathed into an old rivalry between West Bay and George Town at Ed Bush stadium.
Some of the beautiful game’s… ‘senior’ players laced up their footy boots and showed off the skills that earned them the title ‘masters’.
The match, dubbed the Marcus Cumber Cup, helping to benefit the Hope Foundation’s work to help people in our community break free from their addictions.
“When you go there and you meet the individuals, you realize the backgrounds they have come from,” said Marcus Cumber, a supporter and sponsor of the Hope Foundation. “In some of the cases they’ve had really troubled families and in other cases they simply made wrong decisions, and it’s about helping them help themselves to be better.”
“I think it is so awesome to see them come together for one primary objective, and that is to assist those that are struggling in this community with addiction issues and to help them,” said Brent Hydes of the Hope Foundation.
Though some of the stars of the game may be feeling their age today – Ben-gay anyone? – the game was full of highlights.
