Football Flashback 6 – Updating players list for 1970s

SportsFootball Flashback 6 – Updating players list for 1970s

BELIZE CITY, Mon. May 11, 2020– Our population couldn’t have grown that fast, so we suspect it had to do with the heavy turnover rate of players on teams as more and more young people joined the Exodus north to the USA, resulting in new young recruits being promoted to 1st Division football; but we have compiled a huge list of players from the 1970s period, and more names keep coming in.

Over the past weekend, our former Charger teammate Lewis “Lee Buck” Belisle, Jr. added a few names to our list of Mid-1960s to Late-1970s players; and Lee Buck also provided for us the first name of the great “Negro” Hall; he says his first name was Hubert. Lee Buck also said that “Buck” Torres was named Emilio; and he added the names of Frank Taylor and Stanley Gentle (who came from Cayo to play briefly with Charger) to our 1970s list.

Other names we added to the Mid-60s to Late-70s list this week include Bob “Mamboco” Myvett, Oliver Estell and Wilmore Staine; Mamboco and Oliver have passed, but Wilmore is still with us and active in coaching. Hey, these were ranking players that we missed earlier.
All are included in our latest updated roster of 1st Division/Senior players from the 1970s era of Belize football (see below). Feel free to send in any names we might have missed, or corrections and completion of names where we only have nicknames. Contact us by email at [email protected], [email protected], or text/call us at cell 607-8616.

P.S. We have to acknowledge that Amandala articles by Michael Finnegan have been helpful with some names, as has been the book, “Sports, Sin and Subversion” by Evan X Hyde.
