A lone strike from East Coast’s Mark Glasgow in the 58th minute of the following encounter was the deciding factor in the contest between East Coast and Upper Demerara ATCS.
Meanwhile, West Demerara and East Berbice ATCs played to a 1-all draw. While Keon Grant found the back of the net for West Demerara, Xavier Andrews did the same for East Berbice.

The GFF-Tiger Rentals’ Under-13 Inter-Association Development Football League kicked off in January, and features young players from clubs and Academy Training Centres (ATC) in Guyana.
The tournament was specifically designed to develop young players’ football knowledge, and to ensure that they have a national platform to showcase their skills on the pitch.
The ATC aspect of the League is scheduled to resume on Saturday, March 25th, with the intra-association leg of the League set to resume this Saturday, March 18th.
