Western Bureau:Six teams drawn from the Major and the Division One Leagues, including defending champions Classic FC, are down to contest the 2013 Trelawny Football Association President's Cup, which is set to begin tomorrow.
Two games are on for the opening day; Prospect Links FC bow into action against Salt Marsh at the Samuel Prospect field, and champions Classic FC take on All Stars Sports Youth Club at Wakefield. Matches begin at 3:00 p.m.
Other clubs involved in this pre-season tournament include Spicy Hill FC and Duanvale FC.
Duanvale, 2013-14 Major League champions, Spicy Hill, Classic and Prospect Link are four invited teams from the Major League. Salt Marsh and All Stars ply their trade in Division One.
The winners of the Prospect Links-Salt Marsh game will face with Duanvale, who received a bye to the next round on October 13. Spicy Hill will also bow into action on October 13, hosting the winners of Match Two between Classic and All Stars at Georgia.
The President's Cup is an unsponsored competition that had its genesis in the 1999-2000 season and serves to give the top clubs in both the major and division one leagues some pre-season competition.
"It is a very useful little tournament which clubs use to, first of all have a look at their players ahead of the respective leagues," declared Linnel McLean, Trelawny FA president.
"I urge the clubs to play hard and good football, in the truest spirit of the game, while preparing for the long season of football ahead of you," he added.
The competition finale is set for Saturday, October 20, at a venue to be decided, starting at 3:00 p.m.
