Football boss to help cops with youth project

| 21/10/2013

(CNS): As the CONCACAF regional sports development conference is set to open in Grand Cayman tomorrow, the regional head of the association and CIFA’s own football boss Jeff Webb has agreed to help with a group of young local footballers from Windsor Park.  At a recent RCIPS community meeting Chief Inspector Angelique Howell heard about the positive projects residents in Windsor Park want to get off the ground. One such project was the football team which is managed by Kim McLean. The team needed equipment, such as bibs and footballs. Following the meeting the RCIPS contacted CONCACAF who agreed to provide sponsorship to assist the young footballers.

Earlier this month PC Emrol Smith was able to hand over a cheque for $469.58 to McLean at the Winners Circle Sports Store on Smith Road. Assistant Manager Nicole Dixon who said she will be helping Mclean to get the best value for the sponsorship funds when he buys the equipment.

“This project underlines the commitment of the George Town Neighbourhood Officers to work with key partners to help communities develop and nurture their young people,” said Angelique Howell who has often spoken about long term crime preventions projects being the only way that Cayman will curb the rising crime levels. “Back in late September we promised that the RCIPS would do what it could to help the Windsor Park community get their projects up and running – this cheque presentation proves that we are doing just that.”
