The Sports Association of the Sister Islands (SASI) launched the competitive football season on Cayman Brac last Saturday, 29 September, with the 2nd annual SASI Kick-off Football Tournament.

The tournament was a warm-up for the Cayman Brac Power and Light Football League, which starts on Wednesday 3 October for Infant, Junior, Youth and Senior divisions.

In the SASI Kick-off, five-a-side Youth and six-a-side Senior division matches played simultaneously on the Cayman Brac High School field, with a total of 65 players – children and adults – taking part.

Deadly Alliance was the unstoppable team in the Youth Division, with Reforced, Blazers and Real Cayman placing 2nd, 3rd and 4th respectively. In the Senior division, Young Guns were tops, beating Brac Galacticos into 2nd place, followed by Strikers FC and Barca United.

However, the team line-ups will remain the same for the CBP&L League, giving all players a chance to settle the scores.

‘The CBP&L League is the highlight of the year for Brac soccer and all the players are fit and ready,’ said Brac Sports Instructor Mitchum Sanford.

‘CBP&L is delighted to sponsor the League again this year,’ said Sister Islands MLA Moses Kirkconnell, who is a CBP&L Director. ‘These friendly matches are not only fun for the players but also foster real community spirit when friends and family get involved with the sport by supporting the teams.’

Sanford added, ‘I’d like to thank the 50 or so spectators who supported the teams on Saturday, especially those who helped with the SASI food sale, but would like to see more people come to watch the League matches. It gives players a real boost to know that there are people out there cheering for them.’

The CBP&L League will take place every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, coordinated by SASI and the Department of Youth and Sports.

Matches on Mondays and Wednesdays for Youth and Senior divisions will start at 5:15 pm, 6:15 pm, 7:15 pm, 8:15 pm and 9:15 pm. Friday Matches for Infants and Juniors will start at 5:15 pm and 5:45 pm.

All team players have been provided with a team t-Shirt, compliments of the sponsor CBP&L.
