ALL SET FOR 4TH EDITION OF PENNOH W. BESTMAN MEMORIAL FOOTBALL TOURNAMENT

Date:

LIBERIA – The 4th Edition of the Pennoh W. Bestman (PWB) Memorial Football Tournament kicks off this Saturday, April 15, 2023, at the Willis D. Knuckles Sports Stadium (Alpha Field) in Zubah Town, Paynesville.

The one-day sport event is in recognition of Mr. Bestman’s passion and sacrifice in promoting football development among youth in communities.

The memorial tournament will involve four teams, namely Orange Liberia, Liberia Bank for Development and Investment (LBDI), Liberia Airport Authority (LAA), and Gedeh Old-timers Social & Athletic Club (GOTSAC).  Winner of the PWB Tourney will receive trophy while other teams, including teams participating in exhibition matches, will receive certificates.

There will also be exhibition matches in kickball and football. Orange Liberia’s kickball team and Girls of Black Star will participate in an exciting kickball match while Alpha Old-timers Sports Association All-star team will play Liberia Black Star on the same day.

In her words of appreciation and encouragement, Mrs. Agnes Bestman said “On behalf of me (Agnes Bestman) and the children we want to thank everyone who is involved, and a special thank you to the Black Star organization for annually gathering this program. I know my husband PENNOH Bestman is smiling down on everyone (Love you honey).”

And according to Black Star’s president, Alvin J. Wright, “Pennoh was one who gave himself to everyone he came across, whether you were a football lover or just a regular person. He gave himself to this game and it is only fitting for the game he loves to honor him through this tournament.

It is also heart-wrenching that we would be honoring this man on the very same day he left us. April 15, 2023, marks his death anniversary and coincides with his 4th death anniversary celebration. I would like to invite the general public to join us in celebrating this man, this legend in the late Pennoh Wleh Bestman.”

Black Star’s notable accomplishments occurred during the administration of Mr. Bestman, winning three Championship titles in one year – LFA National League, LFA Knock-out Championship, and The President’s Cup in 2007.

Mr. Pennoh W. Bestman, former president of Liberia Black Star FC, former Vice President of the Liberia Football Association (LFA), and former Marshall in the East as well as former Senior Warden of Blazing Star Lodge 17, was a passionate football supporter.

He also served as Deputy Managing Director of the Liberia Airport Authority and former Senior Advisor of Alpha Old-timers Sports Association.

In Game 1 of the tournament, Orange Liberia will play LBDI followed by Game 2 with Liberia Airport Authority going against Gedeh Old-timers Social and Athletic Club (GOTSAC). The winner from each game will play each other in the finals to determine the champion.
