'Zoff' cries out for
Sancho prize $$$
Community sports administrator
Roger 'Zoff' Celestine now faces a
possible lawsuit over monies he owes
to a number of All Fours clubs of the
2015 Tyro All Fours Tournament, a
competition he had put on for former
Minister of Sports and Youth Affairs,
The monies owed to the teams amount
to a whopping $63,000 which was prom-
ised by the ex-national defender as part
of his election campaign for the People's
Partnership Government ahead of the
General Elections of 2015.
From the tournament both Bloodbath
and HD secured $18, 000 in winnings,
while Avengers earned $12, 500, Whose
Next $8,000, Warriors $3,500, Puncheon
More Fire $4,000, which were never paid
by the ex-minister to the organiser.
Zoff told Guardian Media Sports he is
facing a lawsuit or two from clubs mem-
bers who are fed-up of being given empty
promises. As such he will hold a meet-
ing of the clubs on Monday to update the
clubs on the situation. The meeting will
be held from 7 pm at the Smallie Place
in Bourg Mulatresse.
Yesterday, the 54-year-old adminis-
trator was drawn to tears, saying Sancho
has not only embarassed him but has sul-
lied his good name.
He is also taking legal action against
Sancho, the Central FC Managing Di-
rector. According to Zoff his Attorneys
Natasha Samuel & Company await a re-
sponse from Gerald Ramdeen who will be
representing Sancho, after Ramdeen in
a letter on July 19, 2016, explained that
he was in the process of taking instruc-
tions from his client and would supply
him with a substantive reply in 28 days, a
response that Zoff said he never received.
Instead Sancho was quoted in a news-
paper report which stated that his legal
team had been chosen to deal with the
Tyro issue. Zoff who was an Independent
Candidate at the Local Government Elec-
tion last year November, said he does not
want any animosity with the ex minister
but rathers to mend bridges, urging him
to honour his commitment for the league
and put everything behind them.
He noted Sancho's attorney has also
disregarded reminders by his legal team
which could only signal the start to legal
Zoff who celebrated 37 years as an
organiser of sports and cultural events
in the San Juan area recently, was ap-
proached by the ex-T&T defender to put
on cricket, football and all fours events
in the name of the People's Partnership
Government ion 2015.
All three events carried a whopping
$201,000 budget which were to be shared
as prize monies.
He complied to a request by Sancho to
submit proposals for a $50,000 football
competition that comprised an open di-
vision, 40 and over play-off, an $81,000
cricket tourney that featured a 45 and
over, men's open and women's league and
an all fours competition for $70, 000.
Zoff said Sancho now owes him $63, 000
after Neil Gosine gave him a sponsorship
of $7,000 which he used to clear part of

standout performers from a field of over
280 swimmers when the annual National
Age-Group Long Course Championships

state of the art National Aquatic Centre
in Balmain Couva.
This event marks the last qualifying oppor-
tunity for athletes to qualify for the Bahamas
hosted Carifta Swimming Championships
scheduled for 15 - 18 April 2017, and Antho-
ny wasted little time in staking her claim for
a ticket on the team.
Anthony won gold in the 11-12 Girls 200m
breaststroke three minutes, 05.65 seconds in a
Carifta qualifying time and also was the fast-
est qualifier for the 50m butterfly final (32.96

Marlins' Jonathan Andre (4:58.28 mins) and
Atlantis' Marquise Nelson (4:58.54) were sec-
ond and third respectively in Carifta qualifying
standard marks as well.
Blackman's team-mate Graham Chatoor
won the 15-17 Boys version (4:18.67) with

and Tidal Wave's Gabriel Bynoe (4:38.16).

time when he won the 18 & Over Boys 200m
breaststroke (2:24.38), just missing his own
record of 2:23.42.
Preliminary heat swimmers in the 50m but-
terfly did not wait until finals last night to reg-

ten attaining their respective age-group mark.
Kadon Williams of Pt Fortin Aqua Darts was
the fastest qualifier in the 11-12 Boys event in
29.89 achieving Carifta and CCCAN times, and
he was joined by four other swimmers from the
event in Blue Dolphins' Zarek Wilson (30.32),
and Blackman (30.65), who both qualified for
Carifta and CCCAN as well, while Sea Hawks
duo, Riquelio Joseph (31.10) and Josiah Changar
(31.19) achieved Carifta times.
Last night's final was expected to be a keenly
contested one as only the top two from the
event can travel with the team to Bahamas.
The 13-14 Boys 50m butterfly heats which
was won by Aqeel Joseph of Sea Hawks (27.68),
had three other finishers achieving the set
standard for Bahamas in Atlantis' Malik Nelson
(27.95), Silver Sharks' Jonathan Constantine
(28.04) and Tyrell (28.32) while in the girls
event, Jahmia Harley's time of 30.25 was fast
enough for a CCCAN mark.
Amira Pilgrim of the University of T&T was
the fastest qualifier in the 15-17 Girls (29.81),
qualifying standards for both games, beating
Atlantis' Jada Chai (30.65) into second with
