Wired868 kicked off its second annual Football Festival yesterday at the UWI Admin ground and there were an array of former football stars on show.
There were some future stars.
And equality among the sexes.
But mostly goals… And the final score was a whopping 10-4 in favour of the Earl “Mango” Pierre XI.
It was not everyone’s idea of fun.
For some, prevention was worth more than cure.
The supporters were not complaining.
Although one young man was kind enough to offer advice.
Leonson Lewis again led Wired868’s resistance with a hattrick while Tariq John, the 17-year-old son of record Trinidad and Tobago goal scorer Stern John, scored a brilliant strike.
But Lorne Joseph was unstoppable with five strikes while Conrad Smith scored twice and Darin Lewis, Marvin Joseph and Che Benny notched one goal apiece.
See you next year, fellahs. We will be stronger then!
Wired868 will like to give a special thank you to its sponsors: Trinidad and Tobago High Commissioner to Jamaica Dr Iva Gloudon, Cascadia Hotel, Neal and Massy, DIRECTV, Toyota, Carib, HowZzat Media, All Sport Promotions, Sacha Cosmetics and Easi-Pharm.
