He also commended the Federation and Banks DIH for their contribution to this passion.

Speaking on behalf of Banks DIH Marketing Director George Mc Donald said that it was a privilege to host the trophy and show it off to those gathered.

The viewing of the trophy continues this evening at a GALA event at Thirst Park.
And the Kashief and Shanghai year end tournament has been relegated to a schoolboys tournament which begins on the 8th December. The organization has been giving the cold shoulder by the GFF to host its usual tournament at the end of the year.
The Kashif and Shanghai organization will bypass the GFF by holding its schools tournament. The school boys tournament will be launched tomorrow.
The organization has complained of unfair treatment at the hands of the GFF. They even traveled to the Cayman Island to seek an audience with Concacaf President Jeffrey Webb to have him pronounce on the matter but that has failed to change the situation.
