    Again a very misleading statement “4th Annual”. The DFP held the first ever sports award in 1990-1991 and the winners were : Mr. Jeffery Edmunds – sports man of the year and the list goes on and on. What you trying LABOUR!!!!

    Isn’t some kind of award to Jeff Charles long, long, overdue? for the best sports commentator on the island and the Winwards by extension, yesterday and still today? Shouldn’t we name the media centre at the stadium “The Jeff Charles Media Center”? By all means possible! Ensure that the front facing the stadium is properly landscaped as well as the entrance to the stadium and please build proper ticket booths than what we have right now.
