“The Association hosted the luncheon in conjunction with a former Somerset Cup Match player Barry DeCouto, who fully sponsored the event. The Association is grateful to him for his generosity and for helping this worthy cause.”

The Association recognizes the need not only to preserve the significance of Cup Match but more importantly you, the legacy, the history, the role models and what you and your families contributed to this game being one of the most important and significant holidays in Bermuda.
