Regional masters football in works
By Justin Marville (Daily Nation)


THE "OLD BOYS" will get an opportunity to atone for their younger counterparts' recent failures in regional football.

In keeping with its mandate of advancing the sport, the Barbados Masters Football Association (BMFA) is set to host the inaugural Caribbean Masters Football Tournament in November.

Word of this came from chairman of the association Sherlock Yarde, during a Press conference yesterday at the Notre Dame Sports Club in Bayville, St Michael, to announce the upcoming masters season.

The first of its kind in the region, the tournament will attract about seven territories, including Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana, to compete against a select Barbados national team for an undisclosed grand prize and the right to be called Caribbean masters champs.

"We believe at the executive level that masters football needs something different and a special approach to take it where we would like to see it go," said Yarde, who also serves as the senior vice-president of the Barbados Football Association.

"We intend to market and promote the football so that it will capture the imagination of the football fraternity. [So] we will be asking corporate Barbados to support this tournament as we believe it would be a very worthy event to get involved with.

"If it is a success the tournament will expand to a world tournament because when it comes to promotion we have no limit," Yarde added.

In preparation for the eight-team competition, the Barbados Masters Football Association will be making plans for the senior side to undertake an overseas tour in either June or July.
