Brac Cup Football Tournament

Postby KarenS » Thu Jun 08, 2006 6:46 am

From CAyman Net News: "Last year’s Brac Cup Football Tournament certainly proved that the people of Cayman Brac know how to put together a good weekend of top class football.

Building on this success, the 2006 Brac Cup Football Tournament will be held over the weekend of 26 and 27 August in Cayman Brac.

The Brac Cup started out eight years ago with the local nationalities forming teams to represent their respective countries as a tournament of pride for the local labour force. The last two years have seen Future FC from Grand Cayman taking part in the tournament and claiming wins in 2004 and 2005.

The surprise package of last year’s tournament was the very competitive rookie team from Little Cayman Football Club.
Many different nationalities are represented in the club, with Cayman, Jamaica, and Honduras making up the team. To the horror of a number of bigger teams, the team from Little Cayman was far from a pushover, and managed to out-play many of their more fancied opponents, claiming a win or two along the way.

'This tournament brings together the diverse nationalities that are present on our islands to compete in a friendly and competitive weekend of football,' said Sports Instructor Mitchum Sanford.

This year the Sports Association of the Sister Islands invites clubs in Grand Cayman to follow the lead of Future FC and come over to the Brac for some fun, excitement, socialising, and just a fun weekend of football.

'Future FC has been using the Brac as a retreat and a reward for their team for all their hard work during the league season. They have also been assisting in the development of youth football in Cayman Brac over the last three years,' said Mr Sanford.

'I think last year the local boys in the Sister Islands proved that they can offer a challenge to visiting clubs. So far I’m aware that the Brac Reggae Boyz and Little Cayman have already begun their training and preparations for the tournament.'

The Cayman Brac Football Club will again be fielding a very young team with 75% of the players coming from the Youth Program, with a couple of senior players over the age of 30 adding some balance to the team.

For more information on this and other events coming up in Cayman Brac contact Mitchum Sanford at 925-2933."
