Over four hundred and fifty players, officials, and guests packed the standing room only celebration in a year in which the CIFA Vice President Bruce Blake said more games had been played in Cayman than ever before.

Award categories included, for each league: league champions and runners up; Fair Play Awards; Coach of the Year; Goal Keeper of the Year; Defender of the Year; Player of the Year; and the Golden Boot, awarded to the league’s top scorers. Awards were also given for Assistant Referee of the Year and Referee of the Year. Special recognition was granted to Ms. Shanelle Frederick for her outstanding performance in the women’s league, having scored 52 goals over the past four years.

Blake, commended the association on a successful season when he revealed that more games were played across all the leagues this season than at any other time in the association’s history.

He spoke about the association’s commitment to hosting international events and introduced Sharon Roulstone as the chairwoman of the upcoming CONCACAF Girls’ Under 15 Championship and Cayman’s own Girls’ Under 15 National Team and management staff.
