Brighton trumps Stubbs Village Football title

Brighton trumps Stubbs Village Football title


Brighton stopped the popular Stubbs Bridge Boys last Sunday, from doing the double in the South East Development Organisation Inc. Village football competition.{{more}}

Bridge Boys, who last week Thursday got past Enhams Playing It Safe, 4-2 in the Knock Out finals, were buoyant coming to the league final.

The first half, however never lived up to its billing and was a lack lustre affair as neither of the teams found any co-ordination.

A left footed free kick from national senior team player, Shemmol Trimmingham found the head of Randolph Williams, who buried his effort in the back of the net.

Williams then became the provider as his long throw in was mishandled by the Bridge Boys keeper, giving Quillan Tash the easiest of tap ins.

The two goals silenced the partisan Stubbs support which had swarmed the Stubbs Playing Field.

But a tiring Brighton team started to appear in the Bridge Boys defence third. Norris John found a loose ball just outside the 18 yards box, and rifled a right footed blinder, for which national senior goalkeeper, Dwaine Sandy had no answer, as he watched the ball sail into the net.

This goal injected some energy in the Bridge Boys team and they came close to sending the match into penalties.

Former national player Fawn Williams rocketed a right footer that crashed onto the upright with Sandy already beaten.

But it was too little too late for Bridge Boys as like the fading light, their chances of securing both titles faded, as referee Bert Francois called time on the encounter and duration on the competition.

The top performers in the competition were set to receive their winnings yesterday, as SEDI hosted their second annual Independence Fun Day at the Stubbs Playing Field.

The Inter Village Football Competition was part of the revival thrust being undertaken by SEDI inc. to have sporting events back in the south east belt.

After yesterday’s Fun Day, the Netball Competition takes root soon at the Stubbs hard court.(RT)
