Rangers need help, says MP

Government should step in and assist Southampton Rangers Sports Club in ridding itself of antisocial elements, according to area MP Zane DeSilva.

“Rangers are the only club in Bermuda that pay rent for their field,” Mr DeSilva told MPs at the close of Monday's House of Assembly session, citing a figure of $1,200 a month.

“We have had several shootings; we have had a death at Rangers — it is no secret that one of the biggest revenue generators in our clubs is the sale of alcohol.”

Violence has marred several of the island's sports clubs, but Southampton Rangers has garnered unwelcome press in a number of recent incidents.

Mr DeSilva called on the Government and the Ministry of National Security to look into assisting the club with its dues, so “they might be able to stop certain people from coming in”.
