Alex Bunbury’s Academy outfits IGG Futsal team with footwear
Almost immediately after securing tryouts for four local footballers to Sporting Lisbon and Deportivo Alves respectively, the Alex Bunbury Sports & Academics Academy (ABSAA) came to the aid of Guyana’s Futsal team as they prepare for the Inter-Guianas Games against Suriname.
During a simple presentation ceremony, held at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall, representative of ABSAA Junior Forrester handed over twelve pairs of Futsal shoes to Manager of the Guyana Inter-Guianas Futsal team Dwaine Moses.
Forrester speaking at the occasion disclosed that once they were approached they readily agreed to help the team, adding that they saw it was another good opportunity to fulfill an important role in the lives of young people and one that fitted in with their mandate to assist in the furtherance of sports development.
He said that the request was made at a recently staged press briefing to identify the four footballers who were selected to attend the tryouts at the two Academies and to reveal the location where the Academy would be located.
Moses in his response admitted that the request was done at short notice, but commended the ABSAA for supporting the call for assistance in a positive manner
He promised that the gift would be used in a responsible manner and expressed optimism that the players are determined to bring glory to this country in their clash against the Surinamese.
Guyana will face Suriname in the first of three games on Saturday from 13:00 hours, then on Sunday from 09:00 hours and 13:00 hours. This is the first time Futsal will be featured at the Inter Guiana Games.
