The Future is bright

The Cayman Islands Football Association Premier League season kicked off on Sunday and there were a few surprises.

The biggest one was the young Future team beating Elite 3-2. Elite are the reigning league champs and Digicel Cup holders. They also got to the final of the FA Cup last season.

Another surprise was George Town beating Bodden Town 3-2. Bodden Town won the FA Cup last season and walked away with the Foster’s First Division title. They are expected to challenge Elite for the title this season and wanted to get a good start but the far more experienced George Town put paid to that.

Scholars International won 4-3 in a thriller against Sunset and Tigers beat Roma 3-1 thanks to a hat-trick by Kiegel Atkinson.
