BAUGHERS BAY, Tortola, VI - There were all important wins for Robinson O’Neal Memorial Primary, Bregado Flax and First Impressions when the BVI Football Association (BVIFA) BDO Primary School Leagues drew to a close at the Millicent Mercer Recreation Grounds in Baughers Bay on Wednesday December 2, 2015.

Robinson O’Neal Memorial Primary beat First Impressions 2-0 to be crowned U7 champions after an own goal and a cleanly struck penalty from Kyle Farrington.

“I’m very pleased with them,” commented Coach Thomas Albert. “We worked hard all week on how we were going to play this game and we were successful.”

In the Under 9’s, Joel Mars netted twice to hand Bregado Flax Educational Centre- Primary Division a 2-0 win over St George’s Primary.

“The whole season they had been playing a certain style, but it took them a while to settle down. At half time I reminded them of how they should be playing and in the second half they put it all into practice to win the game,” stated Albert, who also coached Bregado Flax.

And in the U12 Final, First Impressions proved too strong for Cedar Green to run out 2-1 winners with Justin Smith and Nathan Adams on the score sheet. Azarni Callwood pulled one back late on for Cedar, who were indebted to  goal keeper Ollie Henderson for keeping them in the game as he pulled off a string of great saves.

“We had a couple of good players who are very technical and made good use of the ball, control, passing and of course scoring goals. Their goal keeper should be praised though, he made some great saves and kept them in the game,” noted First Impressions Coach Michael Fieron.

Awards

The Golden Boot Awards went to Kyle Farrington in the U7’s, Christian Vanterpool in the U9’s and Azarni Callwood in the U12’s.

The MVP’s were Te Mauri Isaac, Joel Mars and Justin Smith respectively.

Golden Gloves went to Caliq Creque, Jaden Abrams and Ollie Henderson.

“It has been tough getting the leagues done in the September term, but in the end today all three finals were good contests. We shouldn’t forget the runners up either; Cedar School had a young team, which gave First Impressions a good run for their money in the U12’s. The overall standard and the quality of play makes the BVIFA very happy and to see the likes of Henderson playing so well in goal, can only bode well for the future of the game,” commented President of the BVIFA Mr Andy Bickerton.

    It is such a shame that the league leaves players off the pitch as the politics of football seem to have no boundaries.
    As a parent with children who have played for several years in this league we could be done. The lack or proper management has created a league with no direction. BVIFA IF YOU WANT TO KEEP IT TO EARN YOUR $$$ THEN GET TO WORK.
    Create a clear set of rules.
    Ensure there is proper communication between team leaders to ensure games actually happen.
    Ensure those that are paid to work at the league actually do their job in a professional manner.
    it used to be a pleasure going to the games now it is a nightmare... bring the fun back into it, this is kids playing, keep your adultnuss away from the kids and let them play and have fun...
    remember fun..........
