Brac Report - Written by Paul Macey.
Sunset Football Club took Under 12 and Under 14 Boys teams to the Brac this past weekend for games against the Brac youth teams. We received the usual warm welcome and many thanks to Harold Sanford for making the local arrangements. I don’t know if it’s just me, but it always seems hotter on the Brac. A large cooler full of water and Gatorade was appreciated by the boys as was the air-conditioned changing rooms.
We arrived early on Saturday morning and one of the island’s school buses was ready to take us to breakfast at Captain’s Table. Despite requests for waffles, sausage and bacon the boys were treated to a pre-match meal of cereals and fruit.
After breakfast we headed to the sports complex. I’m sure the bus driver used to race professionally because we couldn’t keep up in the rental car, I was in. The roads on the Brac are a little bumpy so by the time we arrived the boys were a little shaken although from some reports it was one of the best rides they’ve had for a long time.
The Under 14 boy’s played against a strong Brac team and lost a close game. Coaches Hirst and Griffith were trying out a few new formations gained from watching the mighty Leeds in the English Premier League. I’m sure this will pay dividends as the season progresses.
We had enough players for two Under 12 teams, and we played a round robin with the Brac team. After all the games were completed, every team won one and lost won so honors were even. Everyone contributed and performed well. Coach Sellars won the honors as his team won the battle of the two Sunset teams. I suspect that will come up in conversation for the rest of the season.
After the games we headed back to Captain’s Table for a BBQ lunch before heading off on an island tour. Again, the bus driver was out of the gates like a rocket and I had trouble keeping up on the windy roads. The bat cave, lighthouse and bluff were all on the agenda. Thankfully, no one was injured climbing the ladders to the cave and to everyone’s surprise even Coach Chris made it to the top.
After retrieving our masks, we checked in and despite some confusion with the late flight going before the early one we all arrived safely back in Grand Cayman.
All in all, a very enjoyable day.
