GDF romped to a convincing 3-1 win over the Georgetown Football Club (GFC) on Sunday, July 1, at GFC ground to claim the Georgetown Football Association (GFA) Banks DIH Limited-sponsored President’s Beer football tournamentand a $1M pay cheque!

GDF’s launched their attack and were rewarded with a goal in the seventh minute off the boot of Jehu Drewly. One minute later, captain Rayon Morrison scored to bring GDF’s tally to 2-0. GDF extended their lead with yet another goal by Desford Williams in the 23rd minute.

Moving beyond half-time with their lead solid, GDF continued to deny GFC the revenge they sought until GFC’s Roy Stanton put one between GDF’s uprights to score. It was now 3-1 in favour of the military boys and so it remained when the final whistle was blown.

Team Coach, CIV Denzil Thompson pointed out that coming off of the win of the NAMILCO Tournament earlier in the year, the objective had always been to win the next tournament. “That’s what we did!” he said. “We set our objectives, and trained with these in mind. Our guys worked hard to hone their abilities at the technical, tactical and even psychological levels and it paid off!”
