New men’s champs for Malvern invitational
There will be new champions in the Men’s division when the Malvern Sports Club hosts its second Annual Invitational Hockey Tournament, set to flick off tomorrow and Sunday at the National Hockey Centre in Tacarigua.
Last year’s champions Petrotrin will not be fielding a team, so the favourites tab may fall to last year’s runners-up Trinidad and Tobago Defence Force. The seven-team Men’s competition will include Barbadian squad ABC.
But in the Women’s competition, Notre Dame will attempt to defend their title in the five-team tournament, which also includes GCC from Guyana.
Tournament organiser, Maureen Craig-Rousseau said there will also be a four-team competition in the Junior Boys and Girls divisions.
Craig-Rousseau also said the club is hosting a barbecue cook-off, entitled ‘Tongs on Fire’, as they try to woo spectators to the ground for the two-day tournament. That cook-off runs on the first day from 12 to 5 p.m.
