Title-holders Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) will attempt to make it win number two when they take on Trelawny CA in the second round of the Jamaica Cricket Association Senior Cup at the Trelawny Multi-Purpose Stadium starting today.

The matchup will be one of three in Zone A. The others will see St Ann playing host to Hanover at Noranda Bauxite and St Catherine CA hosting St James at Windalco.

Over in Zone B, Boys' Town will entertain St Elizabeth, St Mary will be at home Kensington and Kingston and St Andrew CA will play away to St Catherine CC.

Zone C will see Lucas hosting Kingston, Clarendon travelling to

UWI and Manchester welcoming Westmoreland.

Meanwhile, in Zone D, Police entertain Portland and St Thomas will be at home to Melbourne.

JDF seek third title

The army men, who are seeking a third successive hold on the crown, will enter the contest following an eight-wicket win over St Catherine CA at Up Park Camp last weekend.

Trelawny, in the meanwhile, will be seeking to bounce back after going down by nine wickets to Hanover CA.

"Based on out last outing, and the result from the Trelawny game, we are looking to take full points from match," said Mark Gray coach of JDF.

"We will, however, not be complacent and intend to bring all our experience and quality to the encounter."

Trelawny, according to manager Chester Anderson, are also optimistic.

" I am hoping that for us it was first game blues and we will improve against the JDF," said Anderson. "They're a good team, but if we can improve on our outfield performance we can put up a good showing," said Anderson.
