GFF KO Super League set for Wednesday
The commencement of the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) 2012 Knock out (KO) Super 8 League, which was slated for this week, was forced to be postponed due to unforeseen circumstances which were beyond the organisers control.
This was revealed in a press release from the GFF Competition Coordinator, Lawrence Griffith who on behalf of himself and the President (ag.) of the Federation, Franklin Wilson, apologized to the clubs, players, officials, referees, spectators and those closely associated with the competition for the sudden unavoidable change.
The League which will see eight top teams participating and battling for a spot in the final will now commence on Wednesday July 11 at the Georgetown Football Club (GFC) ground with a double header from 18:30 hrs.
The first match will be an engagement between Mining Town’s Milerock and Western Tigers of the city; the youthful Milerock participated in the CFU Club Championship which was held at the Guyana National Stadium earlier in the year.
Pele and Amelia’s Ward will throw down the gauntlet in the final match for the night in another Linden vs Georgetown affair. Amelia’s Ward is currently ranked 3rd in the GFF Super League with 18 points after defeating Milerock.
The League continues two days later (Friday) at 18:00 hrs with Rosignol United and Den Amstel engaging. In the feature game Alpha United and the youthful Buxton United will clash to close the curtains.
The Semifinals and Final are scheduled for Wednesday July 25th July and Sunday July 29th at the same venue.
