The sixth annual St Peter Ah Come From Independence Football Tournament is scheduled to commence on October 5 and culminate with the final on November 23. The tournament will be played on Sundays at the Speightstown playing field from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
This community youth development tournament, catering primarily to the 15-25 age group, continues to be a nursery for St Peter clubs while promoting village cooperation and unity during the Independence period.
Over the years there has been an expansion of the purpose behind this venture, where teams from Boscobelle, Road View, Diamond Corner and Mount Brevitor/Mile & Quarter, transitioned by registering with the Barbados Football Association as a result of having their inaugural team efforts launched during these matches. This gave birth to more teams from St Peter being exposed to playing football at national level.
Ten teams will be contesting this year’s tournament and include reigning champions Mount Brevitor, Diamond Corner, Boscobelle, Black Bess, Six Mens, Speightstown, Road View, St Peter Youth and the returning Ashton Hall and Four Hill.
Coordinator is Steve Cumberbatch who can be reached at 439-2695/ 231-1895.
