Tigers enjoyed a lion’s share of the limelight

The Tigers footballers who were the ball boys at the Romario match to honour Lee Ramoon, could not have been there without the help of Butterfield Bank.

Organised by the Cayman Islands Football Association at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex, the event was a great spectacle in June.

World-class players including Tyson Nunez of Honduras national team and Jamaican Theodore ‘Tappa’ Whitmore, played in Romario’s team.

The Under-14 Tigers enjoyed the privilege to be the ball boys. ‘The club thanks Butterfield Bank for their continued partnership,’ said Rodolfo Amador, Tigers vice-president.

‘We are very privileged to have Butterfield Bank as a partner in our youth programme and thank them for their support since our inception of the programme in 2003. The success of our programme would not be possible without the partnerships shared by private companies such as Butterfield Bank (Cayman) Limited.’

Tigers – who have over 20 children between the ages of nine and 12 – performed well during the football season with their development and improvement evident.

The programme promotes leadership, team work and perseverance; it allows the youths the opportunity to demonstrate their team spirits through sacrifice and commitment, an action clearly expressed in the team’s motto ‘Sacrifice – Success’.

‘At Butterfield Bank, we are proud that we can support a worthy organisation like Tigers,’ said Searlina Bodden. ‘We intend to continue to support Cayman’s youth and sports in this manner and look forward to seeing Tigers grow from strength to strength.’
