MLAs plan community football clubs

Sports has long been identified and proven as a great way to bring communities together, and two George Town MLAs are embracing this concept to strengthen these ties in their part of the capital.

A social media post by George Town South representative Barbara Conolly indicated that she and Progressives colleague David Wight, the MLA for George Town West were working with the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) Community Neighbourhood Officer, Cardiff Robinson, to build community youth football teams.



“Your representatives from GTS and GTW together with the Community Neighbourhood Officer responsible for these constituencies are attempting to develop football clubs within our communities and are seeking the support of parents who have boys that are under 17 years of age to join us in developing this programme,” Conolly stated on her Facebook page.

“The idea is that once we have these teams formed, they will be competing against teams from other constituencies in the Cayman Islands (to include the Sister Islands) and in future to compete against overseas teams,” she said.

The first-term MLA encouraged parents to bring their boys to a Back to School Fair being held on 11 August from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at South Sound Community Centre to discuss the programme in more detail.

For further information please contact our MLA office at 745-0487/745-0489 or the Community Neighbourhood Officer Cardiff Robinson at 525-9928.
