Ky-Mani Marley, son of late Reggae icon Bob Marley and table tennis great Anita Belnavis, said his association with Trelawny Major League team, Falmouth United, was born out of a desire to give back to his community.

"With me being from the community and seeing where I can help bridge the gap by giving some youths an opportunity and a chance at life, it was only right that I take that position. Football is my first passion. Being as football lover from birth, for me it went hand in hand, trying to help to rebuild a community and using football as the forefront," said Marley.

Marley has also become involved in table tennis in Falmouth.

"Table tennis is my mother's sport and one that I definitely have a love for, same way. For me, it's just as important because that's what Falmouth was about, football and table tennis. My mother was the champion from Falmouth and there were many more that came out of here. We know that it was a part of the backbone of what Falmouth was built upon and so for me, I want to bring that back to the community," said Marley.
