The annual Banks Beer Cup knockout football competition will continue this year, president of the Georgetown Football Association (GFA) Vernon Burnett said yesterday at the presentation ceremony to reward winners of the second annual tournament which concluded on New Year’s Day at the Georgetown Cricket Club (GCC) Bourda ground.
“The word on the street is whether the Banks Beer/GFA Knockout tournament will continue after this year,” Burnett stated at the ceremony held at the Banks DIGH Sports Club last evening.
“Based on the turn of the tide and now that we are back together as one football family the Banks Beer Cup will continue,” he assured.
“This provides an opportunity for our Banks Beer Cup to be even bigger and better than come 2013,” Burnett added.
The GFA, he said, was pleased to be associated with the Banks Beer Knockout Cup and more so pleased to be a partner with Banks DIH and all the other sponsors.
An excited Burnett said it was pleasure for him to be standing once again congratulating their partners for another successful tournament.
