PORT OF SPAIN, Nov. 3 (Reuter):

Sir Frank Worrell former West Indies cricket captain, has said that football offered greater enjoyment both to players and spectators than did cricket.

"This might certainly surprise you, coming from me, but I do honestly find there is greater enjoyment from football than cricket, in which you wait five days sometimes without getting any result from a match," said the man described here recently as "Mr. Cricket Number One."

Sir Frank was addressing a gathering of young people in South Trinidad on Sunday.
