ST.JOHN’S –UNDER 17 FOOTBALL CHAMPS It’s official. The St. John’s team is the 2016/2017 under 17 champions of Football on Nevis.

At the not so well publicized grand finals which was held on Saturday night-14th January, the St. John’s team, sealed the deal in emphatic fashion versus the St. Thomas’ team, in front of a small but vociferous crowd.

By the end of the second half, the St. John’s team was leading by a comfortable margin of 2 goals to nil.

Late in the second half, a defensive error on the part of the St. Thomas’ team, saw one of the St. John ’s forwards, tipping the ball into the back of the net, with the goal keeper left flat footed.

Make that 3 goals to nil.

Disappointingly, tempers between the young, promising Footballers flared, towards the end of the game and the referee was forced to intervene in no fewer than three unsavoury spats which saw players of opposing teams facing off with ready fists.

This resulted in the eventual expunction of no fewer than three players from the game, having being issued red cards.

A brief presentation ceremony followed and the top awards were made by SL Horsfords Manager Oscar Walters, sponsor’s rep:
