Minister DeSilva previously confirmed the donation was being made in his personal capacity, saying, “I think the guys have done really, really well. I personally appreciate the work the players and personnel have put in.”

Making their first ever debut in the Gold Cup, the Gombey Warriors scored a total of four goals against some of Concacaf’s most elite teams, who all represent nations with millions of people.

The team won their last game against Nicaragua 2-0, and made very strong showings against Haiti and Costa Rica, with Bermuda footballers claiming a Man of the Match award, a High Mileage Player of the Game award, and a Save of the Game award.

    Zane, is all about himself…and the way he carries on in the house needs to be addressed.

  3. mark says:

    you couldn’t just give it to them… you needed it to be publicly broadcasted? i guess everything has to be a photo op

  4. La Verdad says:

    Well done Minister Desilva. Hope other politicians follow your example. Ignore the Trump supporter. Anything to try and score political points for the defunct OBA.

  5. Amazing says:

    And amazing that someone cannot make a generous donation without all of you trolls taking a shi* all over it! Get a life trolls! Thanks Minister DeSilva for all that you do!

    • truthertz says:

      Remember how the PLP trolls commended the OBA for fixing the Somerset Cricket Club wall just before Cup Match last year?

      Me either.

    Well done Zane. There will be critics, but you have helped football in Bermuda and no one can nay say that.

      So why did he choose football? Did WE not give football a major taxpayer funded cash injection a few years ago? Whatever his reasons he wants to be a politician so he should suck up whatever comes his way.
