We are now looking forward to seeing more teams in action for the upcoming INSPORTS All-island Football Championship, which is popularly referred to as the ‘Ghetto World Cup’, where I am confident we will see many more talented athletes,” he added. Great conclusion ST CATHERINE: McKOY LANDS crowned themselves king in the INSPORTS/Babsy Grange Community Football competition, registering a 1-0 victory over Genosyde in the final. The winning goal was scored by Christopher Foster in the seventh minute of a highly entertaining and competitive final on Sunday. Genosyde made several well-intentioned attempts at securing an equaliser, but were unable to breach the defensive tactics of McKoy Lands. For their well-deserved win, McKoy Lands were awarded a $100,000 cash prize, while Genosyde received $50,000. In the third-place play-off, Rebel United hammered Brunswick United in an embarrassing 8-1 thrashing. Rebel United took the lead at the fifth minute through Marlon Robinson. However, Devon Francis was the star player for Rebel United, as he netted a hat-trick (13th, 16th, 31st). Father and son duo Wilson Herrera Jr. (19th) and Wilson Herrera Sr. (20th) also got in on the act with a goal apiece. In an embarrassing turn of events, Brunswick United scored an own goal, increasing Rebel United’s substantial lead. Brunswick United’s Robert Junior scored his team’s only goal of the match, in the 32nd minute. The second half proceeded with no additional goals and Rebel United were the clear third place winners. For that outstanding effort, Rebel United pocketed $25,000, while Brunswick United received a $10,000 cash prize. The leading goalscorerwas Dawayne MacDonald of Genosyde, who received a $10,000 prize, while Viper FC were awarded $15,000 for being the most disciplined team.last_img read more

first_imgDear Editor,I read in the news about food safety and the stringent requirements the USFDA is imposing on the businesses. The regulatory body, the Government Analyst Food and Drug Department (GAFDD), seems to be faced with tremendous adversities to act expeditiously on issues.The repackaging of bulk products should be done under its supervision, and stringent rules should be followed. We see repackaged flour, sugar, salt, milk etc being done in unlabelled plastic bags. These are products that cannot be washed before use, and the consumer, not considering food safety, looks at the small price difference in choosing the unlabelled products. Little do consumers realise, to use the British phrase, they are “being penny wise and pound foolish”.My visits to the markets where this repackaging practice seems more prevalent have led me to discover that those markets abound with these products, though some supermarkets also practise this unhealthy habit, although properly packaged and labelled products are available.Recently, I picked up a 5kg bag of flour being sold in the city. The label at the back stated “Repackaged and Distributed by (name and address supplied). It also stated the foreign manufacturer’s name and address. I looked at the 2 kg bag, which stated the country of origin as The Netherlands. Both packages have one-year duration between production and expiry.The main questions that came to my mind were: Is the production date the date of repacking of the flour? If so, how would I know the actual date of production in Holland?This brings me back to the importance of food safety, and the need for strict enforcement. Consumers could be falling sick from hidden causes, such as salmonella poisoning, without knowing it came from the repackaged food they eat.Yours truly,Akeem Noordwyklast_img read more
