The Honourable Darryl Smith, Minister of Sport & Youth Affairs will be joined by the Member of Parliament for Siparia Hon. Kamla Persad-Bissessar and Chairman of the Sports Company of Trinidad and Tobago Michael Phillips at a friendly match between SSFL Premier Division champions Shiva Boys Hindu College and a Morne Diablo XI on Wednesday 15 February from 3:00pm. The match will be played at the Morne Diablo Recreation Ground, which has been upgraded by the Sports Company for this and future events in the community.
The project to construct a pavilion and conduct other upgrade works to the field were completed by the Sports Company. Ahead of Wednesday's event, Minister Smith said, "We are excited to hand over grounds around the country for use by the communities. This is all part of our mandate to take sport to the communities and encourage the organisation of sporting events. Every available space for sport must be utilised by members of the community". After the handover, the Morne Diablo Recreation Ground will fall under the purview and management of the Penal/Debe Regional Corporation.
