German’s Restaurant backs new football club in Linden
In an act of benevolence on Wednesday afternoon, German’s Restaurant made a monetary contribution to Capital Football Club, one of the country’s new football clubs based in Linden.
A cheque valued G$100,000 was presented to the club’s skipper and national junior player, 17-year-old Andre Myers, by businessman Clinton Urling at a simple ceremony witnessed by national beach footballer Keon Sears and goalkeeper Norbert Sansculotte.
Also present were Regional Secretary Dameion Forrester and Seon Holland, brother of the club’s president and former Linden Mayor and boxing promoter, Carwyn Holland.
Urling posited that football, and sports in general, bring communities together, forge unity, develop good health and help to reduce crime among several other benefits.
He said German’s Restaurant will continue to support any initiative that helps to develop communities.
Forrester, speaking on behalf of the Region 10 club, thanked Urling and German’s Restaurant for the contribution to the youngest football club in Linden. He stated that the club is also involved in community development work through several projects.
The club is also on the verge of assembling a female team, Forrester outlined. Currently, Capital FC has three teams, namely Under-17, Under-20 and a senior group, which will compete in the Super Cup starting Sunday.
