Purewater/JC to honour Coley


The 25th staging of the Purewater/JC/R. Danny Williams Development meet will be held at the school grounds, 189 Old Hope Road, on January 6. Start time is 8:30 a.m.

The Purewater/JC/R. Danny Williams is one of the qualifying meets for the annual Boys and Girls' Championships, which will have its 108th staging this year. The meet has been officially accredited by the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association.

This year's honouree is Miguel Coley, football head coach and technical director of Jamaica College. Coley is being honoured for his tireless efforts as an outstanding football coach of JC.

A special presentation will be made to the family of late Jamaica College old boy and long serving official/volunteer at this meet, Andrew 'Bull' Moss, who died tragically on November 21.


Manchester KO finals tomorrow


Former champions Hill Stars and Mile Gully will contest the finals of the MFA/Brumalia House Knockout Competition tomorrow at the Kirkvine Sports Club.

Kick-off time will be 3 p.m. Extra time and, if necessary, penalty kicks will be employed if the contest is not settled within regulation time.

Hill Stars are multiple champions while Mile Gully will be looking to earn their first knockout title, although they have been to the final several times, including losing to Hill Stars.

However, Mile Gully's place in the final is somewhat of a resurgence for the team, having struggled in recent years in the Major League. They reached this year's final after knocking off defending champions Ricam Academy on penalty kicks in thesemi-finals.

Hill Stars needed extra time to defeat Los Perfectors 4-3 in their semi-final encounter.
