Canaries winger Rashid Duncan may not make the trip to Grenada this week after being admitted to St. Judes Hospital on Wednesday night. The Canaries team was preparing for their champion of champions clash against Paradise FC this weekend at the Grenada National Stadium. Canaries booked their spot in this match up after winning the 2017 Vizion Super League. After being scolded by national striker David Henry for not training after their devastating defeat to Vieux Fort South in the Blackheart Knockout Tournament, the 2017 Vizions Champions were in training at the Canaries Playing Field yesterday evening.
The sports loving community has been excelling against all odds in the sporting discipline of football, despite not having proper playing facilities. Yet, the team will now be without one of their star players who played in New York earlier this year. The playing field has been in disrepair for while now, and, despite calls for the field to get the desired attention, the team continues to practice on this substandard surface. According to fellow player David Henry, “Rashid’s feet twisted in the opposite direction and is still out of place at St. Jude’s.” Asked what caused the injury, David confirmed that it was in fact the torrid condition of the playing field.
