Organisers of the inaugural Massy Under-15 football league will hope for much of the same enthusiasm and competitiveness that prevailed last weekend, to be on show again this weekend when rounds three and four are staged at the Tucville Ground, Georgetown.
The competition, organised by the Fruta Conquerors Football Club and sponsored exclusively by Massy United Insurance, was off to a tremendous start last weekend with the city’s top youth footballers showcasing their raw talent on the field.
Officials of the 12 participating clubs affiliated to the Georgetown Football Association will now look to shape those skilful youth footballers into top-class players, capable of holding their own on the national, regional and international scenes.
Twelve games are carded for this weekend, with an equal number split over the two days. On Saturday, the action will kick off at 09:00h with hosts Fruta Conquerors against Camptown, followed by Black Pearl versus Pele from 10:00h.
Order and Discipline, one of three teams with an unblemished record from the opening two rounds, will square off with Beacon at 11:00h, while Houston Stars and Riddim Squad, both of whom are without a point, will look to get their campaign back on track an hour later.
Santos, the other unbeaten team in Group A, alongside Renaissance, will face Western Tigers, while Georgetown Football Club and Renaissance will collide in the final game at 15:00h.
On Sunday, the first game is also slated for 09:00h with Order and Discipline facing up to Camptown, followed by Beacon against Black Pearl. Fruta Conquerors and Pele will trade skills in game four, after which Georgetown Football Club will confront Riddim Squad.
Western Tigers and Houston Stars will meet in the penultimate match-up, while Renaissance and Santos will close off the weekend’s action.
After the first two rounds, Renaissance and Santos are atop Group A with the maximum six points, followed by Western Tigers and Georgetown Football Club on three each, and Riddim Squad and Houston Stars in the cellar position without a point.
Group B is headed by Order and Discipline with six points from two victories, while Fruta Conquerors and Beacon share second spot with four each. Camptown and Pele are locked on a point apiece, with Black Pearl yet to get off the mark.
