GFA / Banks DIH President Beer Super League…Santos looking to extend unbeaten run
Santos will attempt to make it two victories on the trot when they clash with the Guyana Defence Force (GDF)
in the feature game of a double header as play in the GFA / Banks DIH President Beer Super League continues this evening at the GFC ground.
In the other game, debutants Charlestown United lock horns with Police in what is anticipated to be just as exciting as the feature contest.
Starting time in this encounter is 18:00 hrs, while the other game commences from 20:00 hrs.
The feature clash is an interesting affair with Santos coming off an impressive win against Beacons should be brimming with confidence, but as they know, the Army is usually a fit team that could run any opponent ragged with their sustained tempo.
They will have the likes of Delroy Deen, who was once part of the national setup, while Paul Bobb, an outstanding player at the junior level seems to have made the transition to the senior ranks quite smoothly and should be able to entertain the fans with his silky skills.
Players such as Dason Ryan, Nigel Brathwaite and goalkeeper Rodwell Sandy are all capable of producing performances that could turn out to be match winners.
Santos, however, have some very talented players in their line-up which is anticipated to be led by the experienced Jermaine Fraser, while Michael Pedro, Ellery Williams, Lennox Charles and Dexter Arthur are all capable of doing serious damage to any opposition.
The curtain raiser is expected to start what should be an entertaining night of football with Charlestown United looking to commence their campaign on a positive note.
Spearheading their quest for victory are Randolph Gravesande, Darren Benjamin, Conley Baxter-Dennis, Shon Anderson and Raulston Heyliger, while Police’s chances of securing a win will rest on the shoulders of Alistair Thomas, Kwame Hyman, Sherwin Grant, Terrence Brown, Orville Pedro and Keith Roberts.
By now, it is known that all matches must produce a winner so should the games end in draws, the next option would be to go to penalty shootouts with the winning team gaining the extra point.
No games are scheduled for Friday because the Organisers are urging all football fans all over Guyana to converge at the National Stadium to support the ‘ Golden Jaguars’ as they look to advance in their World Cup qualifier clash against Trinidad and Tobago’s ‘Soca Warriors’.
