Sunset will rise again to shine in their popular sixes

Sunset Football Club has organised its fifth annual six-a-side tournament and it looks set to be as successful as in previous years.

It is at the Camana Bay field on Saturday 15 September and runs from 10am-5pm. The $250 entry fee includes team shirts and trophies for the winners. There is a $250 prize for the winning cup team and non-cash prizes for the winning plate team. There is space available for 16 teams.

“Many of you have been involved in this event over the years and we appreciate your continued support,” said a club spokesman. “One of the main beneficiaries of this fund raising event is the youth programme which has developed significantly over recent years with Sunday morning coaching provided kids aged four and older.

“If you are interested in playing – but do not have enough for a full team, please let us know and we can assist in placing people into full teams. The event is always a good day out, with refreshments available during the day.”

Sunset, based in George Town, play in the Cayman Islands League First Division. They were previously in the Premier League but were relegated two years ago.

A vert progressive club, they have a series of fundraisers throughout the year. This six-a-side tournament is one of the main ones and the other big one is bringing over a British sports celebrity for a question and answer session. Last year it was footballer Bryan Robson and previously the star guest was boxer Frank Bruno.

Others Sunset have brought over include footballers Peter Shilton, Sir Geoff Hurst and Jack Charlton.

For the Robson night, as in similar events at Fidel Murphy’s, plenty was raised from the memorabilia auctioned off. One good sport was Ronan Guilfoyle who paid a high price for an autographed Man Utd shirt. Robson’s fun continued at the traditional Sunset golf tournament at the North Sound Club the next day where 62 participated.
