Government Congratulates Emerald Boys on Sunday’s Win (Official Statement)
On behalf of the Government and People of Montserrat, Hon. Premier Donaldson Romeo congratulates the Montserrat Football Team-‘Emerald Boys’ for their victory on Sunday.
Premier’s message is as follows:
“It is with excitement and a sense of pride that I, on behalf of the Government and People of Montserrat, extend congratulations to the ‘Emerald Boys’ footballers for their dedication and drive, which led them to a 1-0 victory against Belize on Sunday, October 14, at the Blakes Football Field, in match 2 of the CONCACAF Nations League.
I watched with great delight at the demonstration of team work throughout the match, which culminated with Spencer Weir scoring after 73 minutes. My appreciation is also extended to the Team Officials, who would have no doubt provided the necessary support to our players.
The Montserrat Football Association Inc. must also be commended for their hard work in ensuring that this and other football matches are played on such immaculate grounds. Clearly, a lot of work took place in the background to finalise the logistical and other arrangements, which were necessary for Montserrat to host the CONCACAF Nations League.
I also want to specifically say thanks and congratulations to the President of the Montserrat Football Association, Mr. Vincent Cassell; he has done a great job and we are proud of them all.
Montserrat’s momentum and commitment to sports over the past few months has been a high point for us all, and one which we hope will continue throughout the remainder of this year and in years to come.”
