DASC was also pleased to announce that they received a major boost from Umongo Petroleum’s CEO Boston Moonsamy who sponsored the winners with soccer and netball kits.
Moonsamy is well known for his contribution and support in the sporting front and very instrumental in sponsoring the George Ramalu soccer tournament over the years and is always committed and passionate about community and sporting projects.
According to Anand Thaver, Deputy President, “as a Club, we are really honoured and privileged to have Boston Moonsamy pledge his support for this tournament where the focus is on sports development amongst the youth of today and Boston also commended DASC for the sterling work and community projects that they are involved in.
