In accepting the gifts at a simple presentation ceremony at Amory’s office on Victoria Road, Minister Hamilton explained that the gifts were part of a request he made shortly after assuming office in 2015.
“When I became the Minister, I approached him and said I have three first class teams in the competition and all three are doing well, and we need to assist them with some football gears. Mr. Amory did not hesitate, and so when I further went on to Italy, I had met with the officials there who had known about the request I had made through Mr. Amory,” Hamilton said.
In accepting the donation from Amory, Minister Hamilton said that the gears would go a long way in assisting the teams in their preparations for games, while pushing them to perform at their best.
“Today, I am pleased to be standing with Mr. Amory as those gears, shorts and jerseys have arrived and he is pleased to hand them over to me so I can share them with the three major football teams in my constituency.”
