FOOTBALL: Four withdrawls from 2013 schoolboy competitions

Published:Thursday | September 5, 2013 | 9:07 AM

Four schools have pulled out of the 2013 schoolboy football season which is scheduled to start on Saturday at the Montego Bay Sports Complex.



Of the four schools which have withdrawn, three are from the rural area daCosta Cup.



Those schools are Hopewell High, Albert Town High and Porus High.



Hopewell High have been replaced by Irwin High, who will play in Zone 'C'.



With no replacements named for Albert Town and Porus High, it means 80 schools divided into 15 Zones will contest the daCosta Cup.



The urban area Manning Cup competition has been affected by one withdrawal in Mona High.



As a result of that withdrawal, 41 schools will now contest the Manning Cup competition.



A triple header will signal the start of the season on Saturday in Montego Bay.

Manning Cup champions St George's College and Camperdown High will clash in the opening match of the season.



That match is scheduled to start at 3 p.m.



That match will be followed by daCosta Cup champions Glenmuir High against Denbigh High at 5 p.m. in the afternoon and Maldon High against Cornwall College in another daCosta Cup match at 7 p.m.



The competition will have a new sponsor as telecommunications firm LIME has signed a five-year deal with the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association worth$150 million.
