Naparima College are quickly disappearing from sight but both St Anthony’s and Presentation College San Fernando have the chance today to narrow the gap at the top of the Premier Division of the Secondary Schools Football League. Defending champions Naparima are on a bye for round 12, so second-placed St Anthony’s can cut the six-point gap to three if they beat Malick Secondary this afternoon.
The Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva will be the venue for this clash between the two North Zone teams. This is Malick’s “home” game but they are not likely to feel any great comfort at the venue against St Anthony’s, who can call on a variety of players to get goals. But Malick are also a team capable of enterprising attacking play and having now slid into relegation trouble, they will be just as desperate for full points as their opponents.
