All-Star School football matches return after two-year Covid break
The Bermuda School Sports Federation will host its annual All-Star football matches for the first time since 2020 on Saturday.
Five matches will be held at the Flora Duffy National Stadium starting at 10am with the Middle School Girls match. Primary boys will take the field at midday followed by the Middle School boys at 2pm. The Senior school girls match will kick off at 4pm with the nightcap featuring the senior school boys at 6pm
SENIOR SCHOOL BOYS ALL STARS (6pm)
The east team will be heavily reliant on BAA’s first-division squad with eight of the 17 players selected representing the club.
CedarBridge Academy’s Chioke White, Saltus’s Cole Summers, Cole Packwood, Ayden Morris and Tre Burgess along with the home-school trio of Riley Robinson, Jaidyn Robinson and Chazz Knight all play for the Woodlands Road club.
Jaidyn is part of the Under-17 national team currently preparing for the Concacaf Championships next month, while brother Riley earned a senior cap during the current Nations League Campaign. Somersfield Academy’s forward is one of the top scorers in the under-17 league and has made a few Premier Division appearances for Somerset Trojans.
Front Street Mile winner Tajahri Rogers, from CedarBridge Academy, will trade in his sneakers for his playing boots and expects to be part of the busy east midfield.
CedarBridge and North Village’s O’Mari DeShields will share the goalkeeping duties with Knight. Kairo Lewis from Saltus and PHC and Cameron Simons from Somersfield and Vasco will be expected shore the defence for the east squad with Somerset players lead the east attack with Kee-Zai Cann, Keanu Coddrington and Kameron McNeil joining Saltus and Vasco forward Dante Hayward in the attack.
The West squad features a large Berkeley Institute contingent with PHC’s Shavon Nisbett hoping to continue his scoring ways. Nisbett scored the last-minute winner in the six-a-side tournament final and has found the back of the net on a few occasions in the Premier league with PHC.
The squad also boasts two players preparing with the Under-17 national team in centre back Luke Fulton, from Warwick Academy, and Berkeley’s Daion DeSilva-Swan.
Warwick’s Kwame Naylor has been a regular midfielder for Robin Hood’s Premier outfit over the last two seasons.
Fulton will be surrounded by a wealth of defenders with North Village’s Anijahe Martin, from Mount Saint Agnes Academy, and Kristian Cherrington from Berkeley both seeing top-flight action this season.
MSA’s Olek Rymon Lipinski from Warwick Archers and Berkeley pair Jaylon Ible and Isaiah Francis will also feature in the west defence, while Saqui Robinson from MSA will share the custodian duties with Berkeley’s Jonah Trott.
Nisbett will get help in the forward department from Warwick Academy and Vasco forward Moses Johnson and the Berkeley duo of Zano Tucker, from North Village, and Miguel Falcao from BAA. The midfield will also feature Warwick’s Jesse Craft, Berkeley’s Tavez Smith and Bermuda Institute’s Sebastian Davis
