Avengers, 1976, Football team from San Ignacio and Santa Elena

How many young people of San Ignacio and Santa Elena, (under 40 years old) know that we once had the best football teams in Belize? The mighty Avengers are Belizean football legends.

Well starting in the 1950's, we had the invincible WD ELEVEN, that defeated the best from Peten, from the Districts, and even Selection from Guatemala City, for the President Castillo Armas Trophy, and to crown it all, defeated the HOLYWOOD TEAM, Champion of the Caribbean.

Then came the ROCKING R. that was a match to any team in and outside Belize Country.

Then came the MIGHTY AVENGERS, Champion of Champions that were ready to defeat any in site. So I made arrangements to take them to Honduras, where they left a good name, In fact EIGHT of our Avengers players were classified as material for Professional Players. If I remember this was taken at MCC field. I believe Polo Waight was then coach/ manager.

Bottom L to R.....Earl Haylick, Edgar Frutos, Nayo Waight, Culebra Neal, George Wagner, Turo Azueta, David Smith, Too Lennon. Top R to L. Tony Wagner, Pappy Smith, Leagues, Speedy Henry, Lazio Martinez ( Police), Vargas, Timba, Lloyd Smith, Pillis Neal, Lazio Martinez.
