Today, our dear friend and colleague, Gregory Grimes, was called to take his Heavenly rest. We at the Bermuda Football Association have heavy hearts as we contemplate football without “Grimes” with us. Gregory Grimes was a servant of the game. Even though retired from our Executive Council, he continued to serve football on our Referee Committee, Youth Committee, and as a Match Commissioner. His frequent visits to the BFA Office to work on his days off to assist where ever he could will be sorely missed.
Through our tears we take time to send condolences to his family and our friends in the Bermuda Police Service. We encourage everyone to remember the good times, the mentorship, the quiet guidance, and the confident assurance his presence has brought us all.
As a show of respect to our friend, all matches this weekend will observe a moment of silence as we do what he would have wanted; “play the game”.
On behalf of the Executive Council, staff and the entire family of football!
