TheSpennymoor Town FC website said, “The journey to The Pure Stadium at that moment has been a long one for Moors’ number one. A one that began 3,385 miles away on an island in the North Atlantic Ocean. There is more than meets the eye with Bermuda, with 181 islands and nine parishes piecing together a country which has the unfortunate trait of lying in the path of Hurricane Alley.

“To say Eve grew up in a small community would be an understatement, but, the country does have natural beauty with it’s golden beaches, picturesque palm trees and camera worthy sunsets.

“Football and cricket dominate the sporting landscape in Bermuda, which is largely in part due to the British influence on the island. Cricket even has its own holiday cup match over two days when east and west go head to head. From the east, St. George’s Cricket Club in pale and dark blue, and from the west, Somerset Cricket Club donning red and navy.

“After several unsuccessful spells and trials at a number of lower league clubs, a golden chance was about to present itself to Eve after Bermuda created history by qualifying for the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

“It made the island nation the smallest nation outside of Oceania to ever compete in a senior men’s Confederation championship. With a population less than one-fifth of Iceland and a surface area smaller than Manhattan, the odds were firmly stacked against Kyle Lightbourne’s team.
