Twenty teams divided into two zones are vying for honours in the competition, which is into its seventh year.

Chairman of CADO Foster Hannibal delivering remarks, reiterated his organisation’s stance on ill discipline, and forcefully stated that it will not be tolerated in this year’s competition.

Organisers are hoping for a sponsor to come forward, since the competition has started without one.

Dr. Linton Lewis had sponsored the competition for several years.

Organisers are also hopeful that the lights installed at the field will be corrected, to facilitate matches going into the evening. (RT)
