“Beacon Ministries has made this a tournament to remember for the players and come next year the players will be eagerly awaiting the tournament, we thank you,” said Mohammed.

Head of the Ministries, Archbishop Dr. Philbert London said he was very pleased with the tournament and also commended the executive for the support he received in the running of the tournament. He also promised to make the tournament even bigger next year and said that he may even consider a two day event with more flights.
