Sixteen vying for honours in Diamonds Football League


Sixteen teams are vying for title honours in the 2017 Hairoun Diamonds Football League, which got going last Sunday at the Diamonds Village Playing Field.

Returning to try for a third title in succession is Computec Vincy Masters.

They head up Group A, which also has Sparta FC One, South Rivers United, DESCO Strikers, Richland Park Pride and Joy, Je Belle /Chapmans, Lauders, Progressive Youths and Argyle Combined Strikers.

In Group B are Youngsters FC, Sparta FC Two, Park Hill United, SV United, Biabou FC, Brownstown, Defenders and Knockers.

Teams are not only seeking to unseat Vincy Masters, but gain the $2,500 purse for the winning unit.

The second place gets $1,500 and third place, $500.

The league will have a two-week break after last Friday’s fixture, as way is made for the observance of national Carnival celebrations.

Resumption of the league is set for July 16.

Meanwhile, the league was granted a spot in the national inter-community championships, staged by the St Vincent and the Grenadines Football Federation (SVGFF).  

This solemn promise was made by president of the SVGFF Venold Coombs, who addressed the opening ceremony.
