    Look at the picture you mean to tell me that the Recreation Trust could not pay someone to cut the grass. They are paying a man ninety thousand dollars yearly to manage the fields and other places and this is what we are getting.

      @the rock, can you please donate some pants or some funds to buy some pants? This is a noble effort of some older guys to revamp the dying Primary School League. It has been working well except for the lack of funds to fully sponsor teams and equipment. Contact Al Frett or Milton McLean with your donation. Thank you.
