CAPTION: 2 Mile United players and officials in their new outfits donated by Street Scene PNG.
STREET Scene PNG has boosted the team spirit of Two Mile United rugby league club players and officials with the donation of new sets of jerseys and official wears.
Two Mile United are participating in the 2017 NCD Governor’s Christmas Cup tournament which kicked-off on Friday.
Speaking on behalf Street Scene PNG, Killian Epou said the company is proud to support local community sporting teams like the 2 Mile United.
Epou said even though our country is facing tough economic times, Street Scene is happy to support local communities in our city in whatever way they can.
He said the new sets of jerseys, officials wear and water bottles cost money and urged the players to look after them properly.
Epou urged the players and supporters of 2 Mile United to look after their community as well especially our women and girls.
“Be an advocator of gender equality and lets us show to the people of Port Moresby that 2 Mile area is safer and the best place to live in,” he said.
Since the inception of NCD Governor’s Cup 9 years ago, 2 Mile United has not even won the cup and major prize money.
And this might their year and they have players to do so in the likes of Agmark Rabaul Gurias hooker Brian Gispe and Port Moresby Vipers halfback Dicksy Ani.
They also have the services of Silvester Nuabo, Max Koro, Paul Yol, Fedro Gene, Jacob Kale, Alua Yori, John Bonny, Mosco William, Stoney Yoba and
Michael Boeo ‘AKA’ Willie Mason.
NCD Governor’s Christmas Cup tournament was launched last Friday at the Kone Tigers Oval and is set to run through the festive period from December 22-31.
Tournament director Bosky Koke confirmed that 34 teams would take part in this year’s competition.
Koke said more than 50 teams had shown interest but organisers decided for 34 and all have completed the registration process.
The NCD Governor’s Cup is an annual tournament which is into its 15th season and its main objective is to keep our youths out of trouble during the festive season.
