Clive 'Busy' Campbell, organiser of the Bring Back the Love football match, says everything is in place for Easter Monday's game at the Waterhouse Football Club in Drewsland. Kick-off time is 3 p.m.

Although he had secured the venue for some months now, Campbell admitted they still had to wait until the final day of the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) season to know if the ground would be available.

"Waterhouse have a (RSPL play-off) game at 8.30 p.m. (Monday) at Harbour View, so we have to complete our game at 6 p.m. to give their fans enough time to go and support their team. We had to wait until the final positions were decided (in the league) before we could finally get the venue as it was then confirmed that Waterhouse wouldn't be playing at home," he added.

This edition of Bring Back the Love will be the first in a three-game series this year, with the other two games set for Labour Day and Emancipation Day. At Monday's game, a number of outstanding community personalities will be honoured before the main event, which will see an Entertainers Invitational team taking on a Masters and Celebrities/Waterhouse Invitational.

"On the day, we will be honouring Evan Samuels, otherwise known as 'Waterhouse Muma'; Fred Perry, a former Waterhouse player and administrator; and Damion 'Rattigan' Williams. Entrance to the game will be $300 for adults and $100 for children.

Meanwhile, some of those who will be on show for the competing teams are Jermaine Gonzales, Jah Mikes, Martin Nomadz, Lukie D, Tony Curtis, Marcel Gayle, Kevin 'Pele' Wilson, Rudolph Speid, Chris Ziaidie, David Laylor, Shavar Thomas, Ian 'Pepe' Goodison, and Hugh 'Bingy' Blair.
