Things are heating up on the West Coast of Demerara, as the Leonora Track and Field Facility readies itself to host the West Demerara Football Association’s (WDFA) Men’s Senior League. While former GFF Super 16 Winners Den Amstel FC have made a play for the championships, competition on the ‘West side’ is set to be a bit tougher, with the return of Slingerz FC to the fold.
Like the other Senior Men’s leagues around the country, the WDFA games will commence this Sunday evening at the Leonora Track and Field Facility as nine clubs begin their quest for top honours.
On Wednesday evening last at the host venue, WDFA President Trevor Williams unveiled the league in the presence of fellow Executive Members and Club Representatives.
He challenged the clubs to work together with eth Association and by extension the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) to ensure that the game reaches heights never reached in the WDFA.
Clubs were informed that in this short season, the GFF has made it mandatory that Elite League clubs within the various Regional Associations (RA) compete in the local leagues, and in this instance, Den Amstel FC will be throwing down the gauntlet to their fellow West Demerara rivals.
Additionally, former Elite League club, Slingerz FC will be making a grand comeback which adds more spice and excitement to the competitive pot as it will serve up mouth-watering action for fans to absorb on each match day.
Setting the tone for the league from Sunday evening will be Pouderoyen FC against Bell West FC from 18:00hrs with the main attraction featuring Den Amstel FC against #1 All-Stars from 20:30hrs.
The other contesting clubs are Wales, Crane Rovers, Eagles, Uitvlugt Warriors, and Slingerz. President Williams is urging fans to come out in their numbers to support their favourite club as the game will be back with a bang and fan support is critical to making this a reality.
Meanwhile, clubs were each presented with balls and other gear compliments of the GFF.
