Football fans are in for a treat this weekend. What’s on the menu? Three football finals being played at Mindoo Phillip Park and the Micoud Playing Field.

Today is the SLFA’s Under 17 Male Inter-District Football Tournament Championship. In the final set to take place at 4:00 pm at Mindoo Phillip Park, Vieux Fort South go up against Central Castries. Preceding the final is the third place playoff between Gros Islet and Canaries which kicks off at 2:00 pm.

On Sunday beginning at 2:00 pm is the final of the St Lucia Football Association Fantasy Football Championships on the Micoud Playing Field. The teams playing in the finals was decided Friday evening following the outcome of two semi final matches played at Mindoo Phillip Park.

In the first semi-final, Central Castries Barcelona went up against Vieux Fort North Arsenal. The second semi-final saw Gros Islet Manchester City taking on Dennery Chelsea.

The winning semi-finalists square off in the final on Sunday beginning at 6:00 pm at the Micoud Playing Field. Prior to that game, at 4:00 pm is the third place playoff between the losing semi finalists.

Also taking place Sunday is the final of the Marchand Big Eight Knockout Football Tournament between Big Players and the winner of Friday’s semi-final, which had the Marchand Under-20 side going up against Bagatelle.

Big Players booked their place in the final following a hard fought semi-final victory over Arundell Hill on Thursday at Mindoo Phillip Park. After a scoreless first half, Big Players got the game winner from midfielder Nick Joseph midway through the second half.

Commenting on the game Big Players Coach Desmond Sydney said: “It was a very tight physical game and for a while there I even thought they wanted to win more than us. We could not really get going but in the end we were resilient and came away with a 1-0 win.

Sydney was full of praise for his midfielder who scored the game winner. He said Joseph is a very smart technical player, the shortest player on the field and he was able to score on a header.
