ISSA not expecting Manning Cup scheduling issues
Competitions Officer at the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA), George Forbes, is not expecting any congestion of fixtures following the postponement of several ISSA/Flow Manning Cup games yesterday due to heavy rains.
"It would not affect the Manning Cup schedule as we could reschedule the more important games first," Forbes told The Gleaner after the postponement of the full slate of games scheduled for the urban area competition yesterday.
The second round of the Manning Cup is slated to start after the semi-finals of the Walker Cup knockout competition on October 17. Before that, the quarter-finals, which will be played among the seven group winners and best runner-up, is set to begin on Friday, October 13.
Checks made by The Gleaner revealed that none of the nine games scheduled yesterday were played due to waterlogged fields.
Meanwhile, the Meteorological Service of Jamaica predicted that there will be scattered showers and thunderstorms, which could also affect today's games.
