The 5 sets of heroes behind the successful Go Green Cup!

Rustomjee’s Go Green Cup hosted by Kenkre held at the Don Bosco Grounds, Matunga from the 23rd of February to the 4th of March was a huge hit for all the participants and their parents/ coaches alike. This can rightly be attributed to the following dedicated, passionate individuals who worked hard enough to ensure that the football carnival went about smoothly without any hiccups! The real Men Of Steel were:

Joshua Lewis

Joshua Lewis, CEO Kenkre FC

Joshua Lewis, CEO Kenkre FC

CEO of the Kenkre Football Club, this calm man was the main force behind organizing the tournament on a massive scale which saw more than 600 kids in participation. He was present on field, day in and day out and micro managed the entire event on a personal level. His humility was evident when despite being busy he made himself available to answer the minutest of parental queries as well as indulge in a light conversation with the young kids as and when he found a bit of time.

Sagar Kamble, Akhil Kothari and Harry Sir

These ones were the people actually running around from one end to the other to handle the proceedings. From ensuring that the matches scheduled were happening on time, informing the teams, handling first aid in case of injuries right up to playing the roles of coaches for some particular teams… they WERE THERE!

Field coordinators: Faizan Thange, Shaun Fernandes and Kapil Shrimali

These young professional footballers were the directors on the grounds. Marking the attendance of the players on the team sheets, handing them out their prestigious Adidas bibs and keeping a tally of the score: they called the shots and with perfection! It was a commendable endeavor on their part as all three are not only college students but Faizan and Shaun also play for Kenkre FC in the Elite Division while Kapil plays in the First Division.

Referee’s: The men in uniform

A strong contingent of about 10 referee’s was there to preside over this sporting event throughout the course of 6 days. With a minimum of 6 working at all times, they ensured that game was played in all fairness and spirit as they enforced the Laws of football! They adapted very well as many of them went beyond their role and dealt with the young kids in an endearing manner, explaining (rather than warning) them the nuances of the game while playing.

Lastly, The Grounds men!

Fondly referred to as “mama” they were not anything less than the silent heroes! The two mama’s were the first ones to enter, set up all the arrangement right from the watering the grounds, setting up the miniature sheds and chairs, marking out the field lines with white powder after every couple of games, fetching the balls each time then went afar to winding up everything each night only to restart the next day! They were easily one of the most vital elements in organizing the championship.

Thus, it was these people who worked with all their heart, sinew and sweat behind-the-scenes to ensure that the 5th edition of the Go Green Cup triumphed in being a landmark football experience!
