Brittons Hill, spearheaded by a hattrick from 32-year-old midfielder Anthony 'Del Piero' Cumberbatch, recorded a 5-1 blitz of Eden Stars at a packed YMCA stadium.

SWEET VICTORY. The first time is always the sweetest. And yesterday the pupils, teachers, parents, guardians, fans and friends of St Angela's, were thrown into fits of ecstasy at the National Stadium, when the Collymore Rock, St Michael school won the National Sports Council's Bico Primary Schools' football championship

It was St Angela's first taste of victory, and made even sweeter since the team they defeated 1-0, Westbury, had been in winners' row on three previous occasions and were considered the favourites to win by many observers. Here, St Angela's youngsters savour the joy of their success.

GIRL POWER. Some girls are not only making up numbers but actually proving to be a handful for the boys in the National Sports Council's Bico-sponsored Primary Schools Football Competition. Yesterday at the Blenheim playing field in St Michael, Aisha Bowen (right) of Charles F. Broome not only showcased her soccer skills, but her speed and stamina as she left several of the young footballers from the St Paul's School in her wake.

ANTIGUA ST JOHN'S – New Barbados captain Norman Forde believes the unity within the team contributed greatly to them emerging as the Digicel Caribbean Cup Group "B" first-round winners with an unbeaten record in the just-ended qualifying tournament in Antigua and Barbuda.

"I've been playing with the national team for many years. This is my 94th cap right now and we probably don't have the best players but in terms of morale and the love and unity, it is a whole family atmosphere in the team," he said.

"The younger players look up to the older players and it is just good being among these guys," he added. < Read more >

National youth team coach Kenville Layne is making this request to clubs and the Barbados Football Association (BFA) as the team move into the final phase of preparation for next month's Central American and Caribbean (CAC) Games Group qualifiers at the National Stadium.

Barbados will host Puerto Rico and Aruba in the three-team qualifying series from April 14 to 18 and Layne believes there should be a cut-off period for the footballers who are playing with clubs in the Digicel-sponsored Premier League or in the Division 1 competition.

Prior to last Sunday's friendly international against Antigua and Barbuda, a number of players,

who are members of the national Under-21 squad, were involved in a Premier League double header at the Empire Club.

"Sometimes it could be a disadvantage and sometimes it can be a plus but at the present time, it is a little hard to have an international game and two, and three days before a tournament my guys are involved in high competitive games in Premier League football," Layne said.

"That is my worrying factor and I am hoping that the next time this situation comes around I would be allowed to have these players at least four or five days before a game of this nature," Layne said. (ES)

Pine Hill St. Leonard's Boys finally succumbed in extra time to The Lodge School's determined onslaught when Wednesdays Under-14 interschool football final came off at the National Stadium, Waterford. Pine Hill St. Leonard's Boys finally succumbed in extra time to The Lodge School's determined onslaught when Wednesdays Under-14 interschool football final came off at the National Stadium, Waterford.
The lone goal scorer, striking in the 53rd, was Lodge's captain, Darian King, who was later named finals' Most Valuable Player.

Lodge were the underdogs early on and at the start it was all going St. Leonards' way. The ball never even left the Lodge School half in the first five minutes.

However, the St. Leonard's boys didn't convert their possession and gave Lodge the chance to build an offence. Although Lodge had less possession, they looked the more disciplined and purposeful side when they did have the ball. By halftime, King had already begun to look dangerous. < Read more >
