The Cayman Islands Football Association, in conjunction with the West Bay Sports Foundation, hosted the CIFA 2012 Charity Shield match between Scholars International Sports Club (winners of last season’s Cayman Premier League and FA Cup) and Elite Sports Club (runners up of last season’s Cayman Premier League).
Scholars International won 2-1.
In the curtain raiser, Academy Sports Club Under-15 team played CD Vida U-15 team, with the Honduran side winning 1-0.
CIFA net proceeds from the night were donated to the Cayman Outreach Association, on behalf of Dwayne Ebanks. Cayman Outreach Association is a faith based organisation that cares for at-risk children.
Bruce Blake, first vice-president of the CIFA, said: “Dwayne Ebanks is one of our most dedicated and respected referees and recently had some health issues. The CIFA wanted to show our appreciation for his contribution to the sport by donating the proceeds from the Charity Shield match to a charity of his choosing. He recommended that we make the donation to the Cayman Outreach Association.”
Founder members of the West Bay Sports Foundation presented the donation to Michael Myles, along with Blake and Ebanks. The West Bay Sports Foundation representatives at the presentation were Renda Cornwall, Ardin ‘Cheeky’ Rivers and Mervin Smith. The total donation made to the Cayman Outreach Association on behalf of Dwayne Ebanks and the CIFA totalled $1,000.
