The Liberta Sports Club has pledged its support to ailing football coach and the Antigua and Barbuda Football Association’s (ABFA) technical director, Rolston “Debu” Williams.
President of the Liberta SC and former West Indies fast bowler, Kenneth Benjamin, said a portion of the funds collected during the Blackhawks’ next home match will go towards Williams’ medical fund.
“We couldn’t force people to go to the boat cruise and the breakfast so what we have done is that for the next home game, PIC Blackhawks versus All Saints United, we will donate 50 percent of the gate receipts to Debu’s medical fund,” he said.
“Debu and I, we have our differences but I believe that Debu and Porridge, they go a long way back, and so we felt it was the right thing to do,” he added. 
Williams, who is also coach of the defending Premier Division champions, Asot’s Arcade Parham, has been hospitalised for some time now, unable to coach in the top flight since it started on November 12.
Benjamin has urged the public to support the effort as the Liberta Sports Club seeks to do its part in assisting the former player.
“One never knows what is going to happen to you tomorrow and we just wanted to do our bit in terms of assisting Debu as a football technical director and national coach. We are just appealing and hoping that people will come out and support because whatever we get we will just have the treasurer split in half and forward 50 percent,” he said.
Liberta Blackhawks take on All Saints United on December 19 in Liberta. Entrance fee for the match is $5 with 50 percent of all funds collected at the gates going to Williams’ medical bill.
