St George’s footballers receive smartphones from Digicel after theft
St George's College footballers with their new smartphones after a handover by Digicel recently.

Following the theft of their smartphones from their locker room during the recent season opener, members of the St George’s College Manning Cup football team have received replacement devices from schoolboy football sponsor Digicel.

Digicel Junior Brand Manager, Kaydean Webley, sprung the surprise on the student-ballers during a training session at the school recently.

As the jubilant teens powered up their new phones, Webley commented, “We are super-excited that you are already loving your new phones, and that you’re all able to continue to enjoy your Prime Bundle plans with the fastest mobile data speeds. The excitement on your faces reminds all of us at Digicel why we continue to support our young ballers. Continue to enjoy our services, and all the best with your quest for the Digicel/ISSA Manning Cup.”

On September 10, while St George’s College faced off against Ardenne High at Sabina Park in their ISSA/Digicel Manning Cup opener, thieves broke into the George’s players’ changing room and stole cellular phones, items of clothing and even football boots.
