In a warm-up to the tournament, veteran players of the Carenage will engage in a friendly match with a squad of younger players drawn from the community. The friendly is carded for 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 24.

Since the beginning of the year, Old Trafford has become a hive of daily activities of schools, sports clubs, community organizations and church groups.

Among the regular users are the T.A. Marryshow Community College, Anglican High School, Carenage Sports Club and athletes of the Royal Grenada Police Force.

It will be the venue on Easter Monday, April 9, for a children’s fun day organized by the St. George’s Anglican Church.
