Bermuda's European Footballers Round Up
Willie Clemons & Bodens Celebrate the Winner
Nahki Wells came off the bench in the 72nd minute as Queens Park Rangers picked up their third away win of the Sky Bet Championship season after downing Ipswich Town 2-0 at Portman Road.
A corner from Luke Freeman found its way into the net to open the scoring after 13 minutes before Tomer Hemed converted from the spot on the stroke of half-time to make it 2-0 after Ebere Eze was upended in the box.
Reggie Lambe and his Cambridge United teammates displayed huge character to secure a well-deserved point away to League leaders Lincoln City, in a 1-1 draw at Sincil Bank.
A stunning strike by Jevani Brown cancelled out Matt Rhead’s early header for Lincoln City to ensure Cambridge United ended their losing streak in Sky Bet League Two, although they pushed to take the spoils against Lincoln who were a man short after the dismissal of Ellis Chapman in the first half.
Dante Leverock and his JK Navra Trans teammates went down 2 – 1 at home to second placed Flora.
Flora would take the lead in the 22nd minute with a goal from Erik Sorga, but three minutes later JK Navra Trans were level when Victor Plotnikov scored. Flora would go back in front in the 42nd minute through an Rauno Alliku strike and with that being the only scoring of the game they would hang on for the win.
Willie Clemons and his Bodens BK are promoted to the 1st Division after they came from behind to defeat Piteå 2 – 1.
Piteå took the lead when Johan Hedström managed to score giving the home team a 1 - 0 lead, but goals from Jack Serrant-Green and Max Nyqvist earned Bodens the Title.

BEDC Sports Club Development Seminar
Ministers Weeks & Simmons
In a joint Ministry initiative, the Minister of Economic Development and Tourism Jamahl Simmons, and the Minister of Social Development and SportsMichael Weeks, participated in the launching of the Bermuda Economic Development Corporation (BEDC) sports club micro loan initiative, at a seminar that took place at the Bermuda Industrial Union.
Representatives from local sports clubs were on hand at this development seminar to learn about this new initiative and the loan application process as well as receive information on all of the BEDC’s products to assist clubs.
This new program will provide assistance to existing sports clubs through $25,000 loan guarantees to assist in achieving their goals and objectives.
Minister Simmons said, “The Ministry of Economic Development and Tourism is excited to partner with the Ministry of Social Development and Sports to support the development of football, cricket and sailboat clubs. Only these clubs will be supported initially and after review of loan product take-up, the sports club micro loan product will hopefully be offered to other types of clubs as well.
The Government’s 2017 Throne Speech touted our desire to support Sports Clubs with developing financial products to create more sustainable business models in an effort to better serve their members and the public at large.
This evening, together with the Bermuda Economic Development Corporation and the Department of Youth Sport and Recreation, we are pleased to be able to continue to build on that promise. The Government, through BEDC and the Department Youth, Sport and Recreation, is proud to be leading with innovative Club-funding mechanisms to drive new economic success.
Clubs have historically played a key role in Bermuda as a connector to our community. However, they can also play a key role in the economic development of our communities and our Island, from creating an environment to foster micro-enterprise or vendors to facilitating business development through renting out physical space to established entrepreneurs.”
