Rajah Memorial at Aranjuez Savannah

 Former national footballers Alvin Corneal and Ellis Sadaphal will captain the opposing teams in tomorrow’s 24th annual Rajah Memorial game at the Aranjuez Savannah. Kick-off is at 4.30 p.m.

Cecil Rajah was a popular stalwart player with Blackpool in the Aranjuez League, rubbing shoulders with teammates and opponents who went on, like Corneal and Sadaphal, to distinguish themselves at higher levels of the game. Tomorrow’s fixture represents an ideal opportunity to not only pay tribute to a former colleague, but also for veteran footballers and supporters to come together and reminisce on their “good old days” or comment on the state of the game locally and, with Brazil 2014 now less than a hundred days away, internationally.
