President of the Republic distinguishes Castilho club as worthy of everyone’s support for what it has done in these 100 years

Mindelo, Feb 27 (Inforpress) – The President of the Republic today classified Grémio Sportivo Castilho as an association with “great wealth” and “heritage” of São Vicente and Cape Verde, which deserves to be supported by the “good things” in this century of existence.

José Maria Neves went late this morning to visit and pay tribute to Castilho, “because it is not every day that a sports institution celebrates 100 years” and which is already, he specified, an institution of São Vicente and Cape Verde, for the its “important role” in sports and culture.

“Our perspective is to give visibility to these good examples like Castilho and others that exist in the country and that are often hidden”, clarified the Head of State, recalling that today, in Cape Verde, “it is not easy to manage and maintain” an organization like Castilho.

Incidentally, Neves considered it to be “a heroic act” all this work that the club has been doing, maintaining permanence in the football championship and still making this effort to develop other activities.
