SPORTS NEWS:Footballers step out to help Haiti relief fund

Some of Bermuda's top footballers, past and present, helped raise $2,000 for earthquake-stricken Haiti by taking part in a charity football tournament.

Four teams, Corporation of Hamilton, Ministry of Works and Engineering, BELCO and Telco, have spent the last few weeks competing in a round-robin competition.

The final, held at BFA Field on Monday night saw The Ministry of Works and Engineering (MWE) defeat Telco 5-1 thanks to a hat-trick from man of the match Dennis Russell and goals from Donnell (Red) Bailey and Komeni Talbot. The scorer for Telco was Philip Clark.

In the third place game, Troy Burgess and Caisey Burgess were on target for Corporation of Hamilton (COH) who beat BELCO 2-1.

Lirano Lima was the scorer for BELCO, who also fielded a female player, Michelle Leman.

Well-known players such as former Bermuda internationals Kentoine Jennings, Kofi Dill, PHC defender Corey Dowling, Southampton Rangers striker Dennis Russell and ex-Devonshire Colts stopper Vic Ball all pulled on their boots for the charity matches.

Co-organiser Ball said they hoped to make the tournament a annual charity event.

"All teams were responsible for raising $400 each ... we raised $2000," he said. "Bermuda Football Association also sponsored the trophy which was presented to the winning team.

"We are planning for this to be an annual event and the beginning of businesses and corporations coming together to enjoy sports for a worthy cause. Because of this event we hear that Bank of Bermuda, Parks Department, Fire Service, Police and others are interested in starting a corporate league."

The tournament was conceived by Kennedy Wainwright of BELCO and organised along with Chris Wright of Telco, Vic Ball of MWE and Jamal Warren and Danilee Trott of COH.
