SEVERAL?Premier League and past Barbados footballers will be on show in tonight’s final of the Rondell “Crash” Pollard Memorial Football Tournament at Ellerton playing field, St George.
The surprise team of the competition so far, Cave United, will face off against star-studded Bangkok Elite in the highly anticipated final, which is slated to begin at 9 p.m.
Having defeated one of the pre-tournament favourites, Scotty’s Combined All-Stars, in the quarterfinals, the Shawn Scantlebury-managed Cave United then booked their spot in the final when they defeated the much touted home side Yung Starz in their semifinal match.
Cave United will be led in defence by Barbados defender Jomo Brathwaite, Cleve “Fedder” Boyce, as well as Andre Gibson, who have both enjoyed a spectacular run in the competition so far.
The emergence of two young midfielders in Ryan Grant and Christopher Atherley, who play for Tudor Bridge during the Barbados Football Assciation’s season, has also been one of the reasons behind their success, with Brittons Hill and Top Bay Settlers lanky striker Henderson Richards leading the way up front.
Bangkok United, managed by Andre “5-Star” Scott, will fancy their chances, with former national goalkeeper Morrison Taylor between the uprights.
And with the presence of three other former national players in the experienced John Hawkesworth, Jarvis “Ching” Forde and Omar “Benz” Primus, marshalling their defence and midfield, a highly competitive contest is on the cards.
In the third-place game, which many fans thought would have been the championship match, Yung Starz will take on P.A.B?Ballers, also known as Southside, at 7 p.m..
The likes of Ramar Miller, Jabarry Chandler, Diquan Adamson and Kemar Headley will all be in the P.A.B. Ballers line-up while Shane “Cappy” Codrington, Gregory “Lalu” Goodridge, Rosean Brathwaite and Randy “Higgins” Burrowes will represent Yung Starz.
Tournament organizer Corey “Beenie Man” Barrow revealed that the night’s programme will kick off with an exhibition match at 5:30 p.m. (RB/EZS)
