The Charley's JB Rum Western Confederation Super League returns from the Christmas break with a full slate of matches down to be contested. The schedule includes a tough matchup between Group One leaders Salt Marsh United and Savannah SC. Match time is 3 p.m. at the Frome Sports Complex.

Salt Marsh will put their perfect start to the season on the line against one of the brand-name teams in the competition, having already logged six points from two matches before the one-week break.

They will be keen on making it three in a row and condemn one of the big-name teams to another loss.

The other matches in the group are Granville (third in Group One) up against Montego Bay Boys and Girls Club (MBBGC) at the Granville Community Centre.

Petersfield FC, second in the group on three points, host Lucea FC at the Petersfield Sports Ground.

GROUPTWO

Meanwhile, in Group Two, top club Beaches Negril (four points), after two matches, travel to tackle Sandals Whitehouse.

The Aaron Lawrence-coached Sandals Whitehouse team are off to a slow start by their standards and will be in for all three points against their cousin team from Negril.

Sandals are yet to win a match so far this season after two tries and will need a strong defensive display to keep Beaches at bay.

Also featuring today is Reggae Youths versus Clarks Town at the UDC field in Montego Bay, while two former winners, Wadadah and Village United, meet at the Elleston Wakeland Centre.

Village are in dire need of a victory, though that will be tough against this strong Wadadah team, who are currently second in the group with three points.

All matches start at 3 p.m.
