BELIZE CITY–Vincent “Winty J” Johnson informed us today that two friendly football games are being planned in connection with the 2nd Annual Mugger Day, which is again hosted by a living legend himself, Nelson “the Roo” Robinson at #3 Oleander Street, across from the St. Martin’s football field, on Sunday, September 14. Winty J said the first game is a youth match, featuring kids coached by Jerome “Peeloff” Maheia of Yabra and Dion “Pussy” Flowers of Third World. That game starts at 12:00 noon, to be followed by the veterans’ game – Kulture vs “The Rest.” Kulture won last year’s Mugger Day veterans’ game.
All veteran football players are invited to the festivities.
For interested donors, contributions are still welcome. “A football would be appreciated,” said Wiinty J. The Roo can be contacted at 627-7471 or 661-6908; and Winty J at 635-9724.
Mugger Day is in tribute and remembrance of Belizean football legend, Louis Antonio Garbutt, better known as the Mugger, Sunrise – September 19; 1940, Sunset – June 28, 2013. But as we discuss the Mugger on that day, we will also remember his Independence teammate, Serapio “Big Mole” Alvarez, who passed on August 23, 2013, and other great footballers of the past.
