SALVADOR DO MUNDO: The long wait of Salvador Do Mundo villagers for a football ground finally ended with a construction of a standard size football ground and car parking on church property.

After the villagers’ long search for a land for the ground failed, the Saviour of the World Church offered its property for the football ground and car park. 

It was a moment of immense joy and pride for the parishioners when the ground was inaugurated and blessed by the Parish Priest Fr John Fernandes, on Sunday. 

To mark the occasion, an exhibition match was held at the newly inaugurated ground. Saviour of the World boys outplayed Penha de France Youth, 5-1 to emerge winners of this match. The game began with both the teams attacking and trying to establish control in midfield. However, as the game progressed, the Salvador do Mundo lads literally camped in the territory of the rival team. The first goal scorer of the match and on that play field was awarded to Ramino from the home team.

A few parishioners got together for this cause and spent two months of tireless efforts developing the ground during their leisure time. The entire cost of this ground has been borne by few parishioners who have generously donated towards the cause.

One of the parishioners, heading this project, said that this initiative was taken up for the benefit of the youth of the village. “In the church property itself we decided to level and develop the open area into a play filed for the children. Since there is no ground in the village, this can be used by the children especially during their on-going holidays. There is no restriction on the usage of the ground and it is open for all communities to play here. The parishioners will also have additional parking space,” he said.
