A number of big name footballers such as Kenwyne Jones, Yohance Marshall, Jan-Michael Williams, Julius James and Kevon Villaroel etc will be on show when the St Anthony’s College Football Fiesta takes place tomorrow at the Training Field of the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Mucurapo from 6pm.
This year’s event is being dedicated to ex manager Anthony Clarence who passed away from cancer in January this year. Nigel Grovesnor, the former St Anthony’s coach described Clarence as his man of business for many years and his riding partner.
Clarence who lost the battle for life after ailing for a while, also had two sons who represented the school in football, Abiola and Ajani Clarence.
Both are expected to be among the gathering of ex players from the different eras, who will battle among themselves for bragging rights.
In spite of using a different venue instead of the school ground where it has been held for many years, Grovesnor said he holds the football fiesta close to his heart as he enjoys seeing the reunion of many past players whom he coached when they were at the college.
He called on all past pupils to come out for a time of fun and remembrance of the times they had at the school.
Grovesnor is now coach at Queen’s Royal College (QRC) taking it to ninth in the Premier Division of the Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) this season.
The fiesta began back in 1990 as a memorial tournament for midfielder Martin Anatol who drowned while he was on scholarship abroad.
It has since grown to include others who have died and those who have made significant achievements in their lives.
