The Minister of Sport, Olivia Grange, is expressing condolences to the immediate family and to the Clarendon College family on the death of the assistant manager of the Clarendon College daCosta Cup football team, Neville ‘Manny’ Peart.

Mr Peart died in a motor vehicle crash on the PJ Patterson Highway in St Catherine on Thursday night, December 1. He had visited the Clarendon College team in Kingston and was on his way back to Clarendon.

According to the sport minister, Mr Peart’s passing is a real tragedy and coming at the time it did, just before the daCosta Cup finals on Saturday.

She says he had served the football programme at his alma mater and the community in general well.
