Five-a-side football’s increasing
popularity has seen the WestTel League’s three divisions flourish this season.
From Monday to Thursday every
evening the court at the King’s Sports Centre in George Town has marvellous
games that draw a lot of attention and bragging rights. Serious footballers use
these games to maintain fitness and their skills, and the casual players
usually try to relive past glories. All organised by Ray Singh, athletic director
at King’s, there is a thriving co-ed league on Sundays too.
Before this week’s games, in the
First Division, defending champions Burger King were giving everybody else a
grilling. Unbeaten in their first six games, their leading scorer is Rene
Carter with 12. WestTel are second in the standings, three points behind on 15
and Old Boys are third with 10. Dominique Pearson of the Transformers has 11
and Chris Ebanks of Appleby is third with eight.
In the Second Division, Centre Spot
are undefeated in seven with 17 points. Last season’s Division Three champs the
CFP Buzz Crusaders are in their transition season and struggling a little but
can still boast the division’s third top scorer in Dan Kelly who hit four in their
5-1 win over HSBC on Monday to take his tally to nine. The division’s top
scorer is Centre Spot’s Lee Parry on 11 and Ricoh Brown of HSBC has scored 10.
Last season’s champs Paramount All-Stars are second in the standings and
Doghouse Devils third, both on 11 points.
In the Third Division PWC have won
all six and are already nine points ahead of second-placed Heineken All-Stars.
KPMG Blue Iguanas are third on eight points. PWC’s Richard Crozier is top
scorer with 13 and Stuart Williams of the Doghouse Devils II has seven.
