Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport Congratulates Devonshire Colts

“Congratulations to Devonshire Colts who had an impressive season, not losing any of their games, and winning the First Divison Trophy.” said the Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport, Senator Owen Darrell, JP. 

“As one of the two National Sports in Bermuda, Football is deeply ingrained in our culture. The beautiful game, with a blend of skill, strategy, and passion captivates fans worldwide. Football has a way of stirring emotions and uniting people from different cultures and backgrounds transcending individual differences.” 

Minister Darrell added, “Devonshire Colts are a great team with a rich heritage founded by Edward DeJean, the principal of Howard Academy, and Braxton Burgess, a physical education teacher. Former players included Kenneth Richardson, Lionel “Eggs” Darrell, Charles Phipps, Calvin “Bumps” Simmons, Cecil “Junks” Durham, Edward “Woody” Fox, Raymond Morgan, Delwin Trott, Alex Romeo, Onslow Grant and Arnold Todd, and coaches Carlton “Pepe” Dill and Donald “Dick” Dane.” 

“Over the years, Devonshire Colts achieved astonishing success. In 2023, they celebrated 65 years and marked the anniversary with a gala black-tie dinner and a documentary to promote awareness of Devonshire Colts’ impact on the community, entitled Sportsmanship, Character, and Unity: The 65-Year Journey of Devonshire Colts.” 

 Minister Darrell concluded, “On behalf of the Ministry of Tourism, Culture, and Sport, I congratulate both the Devonshire Colts and the Boulevard Blazers for delivering a truly captivating end-of-season match.”

“Supporting our sporting teams to foster a sense of unity, pride, and identity in our community is essential. The Ministry and Department of Sport and Recreation will be on hand to congratulate the Premier Divison Champs and FA Cup Champs in the upcoming weeks.”
