Charity replay

The Charity Shield football match between Bodden Town and Scholars International was postponed on Sunday due to bad weather a few minutes after it started.

It will be replayed on Wednesday, Oct. 16, at the TE McField Annex Field, kick off 7:30 p.m.

Bodden Town won the league and FA Cup last term under captain Jamal Clarke. Scholars won the Digicel Cup.

Scholars want to recapture the Premier League title they won the previous season.

Bodden Town dedicated their triumphs to fallen teammate Gerome “Bird” Graham, who died of an undetected heart defect at training in June 2012.

Most relieved and emotional of the celebrating Bodden Town players was Bird’s brother Kareem James, who hopes for similar success this season.

Proceeds of this event will go toward The Cayman Islands Red Cross.

Although the 2013 hurricane season has seen relatively low activity, the Cayman Islands Football Association decided to support the Red Cross so that they are fully equipped to continue supporting the community when disasters do strike.

“On behalf of everyone at CIFA, we are proud to honor the Cayman Islands Red Cross,” said CIFA first vice-president Bruce Blake.

“This organization and its volunteers selflessly give to the community, and we wanted to express our gratitude for the work they do.”

Tickets are available at the gate at $10 for adults and $5 for children under 12.
