Bel Air with 23 points from two games are in second place followed by Transport SC with 15 from two and GCC two from two. Teams will play each other thrice with the top two going through to the final.
Chairman of the competitions committee Shaun Massiah told Kaieteur Sport yesterday that all tournaments will resume as soon as the weather changes and said the unavailability of grounds is one of the major factors affecting the GCA. One of the venues in the city that has not been upgraded for close to a decade is the Transport Sports Club ground and due to this its members have to resort to the tarmac or neighbouring grounds for training. The players there have voiced their concerns on several occasions which have gone unheard and are calling on the relevant authorities to upgrade the facility so they can be better prepared for matches. He also lamented on the lack of adequate covers at most venues.
Massiah said they will be looking to stage a first division 50-over and T20 as well as a second division T20 and an U15 tournament in the coming season but would need corporate support.
