Hope for Canada tour

Players from two of Barbados’ leading junior football clubs who were left stranded on the island last week could still be heading to Canada this summer.

Following a meeting on Monday at the Wildey Gymnasium between parents, coaches and minister of sports Charles Griffith, it was revealed that some local entities offered financial support and an additional $48 000 was required to make the trip a reality.

Griffith made the disclosure yesterday during an exclusive interview with Nation Sport.

“If we get the assistance from the private sector and others, there is a possibility that the tour could still be on. This is the reason I am trying to ask the private sector to contribute in trying to make it happen for these youngsters who were expecting a lot,” Griffith said. (MK)
