Winners Connection tackle Capital FC, Milerock face Topp XX challenge
…as UDFA Senior League continues tonight
When the Upper Demerara Football Association (UDFA) Senior League championship resumes tonight, a double-header feature will see Capital FC and Haynes Winners Connection meeting from 06:00h while at 21:00h it will be a grudge match between Topp XX and Milerock at the Mackenzie Sports Club Ground.
Dubbed the “Return To Play” championship league after the COVID-19 pandemic interrupted the playing of competitive football over these past two years, footballers are eager to display their skills at the championship level.
Game one tonight between Capital FC and Winners Connection will provide fans with what is expected throughout this 13-club league championship.
Among those appearing for Capital FC will be forward Tyric McAllister, who will be seeking goals while the schemers will be their captain, Andre Myers and David Fiedtkou with the backline centred on Jamal Almond and Omari Ramsammy.
They will face the experienced Haynes Winners Connection, a team which have won three GT Beer year-end tournaments among others and will make formidable opponents.
Haynes Winners Connection will not take Capital FC lightly, and their line-up has Akeem Caesar and Kevin Dare as forwards seeking to pressure the opposing defence with Anthony Layne showing up in the middle while their defenders will be Andre Phillips and Raynard Caesar.
The next game will gather momentum from this opening game when Milerock and Topp XX come to grips with each other.
Milerock will be introducing an almost new breed of players this time around. Marcus Tudor will be up front with the midfield play shared by Ramjan Ramdeholl, Neil Kennedy, and Odessa Tudor, who have all played for Guyana at the youth levels.
Add the veteran player Rawle “Boney” Gittens to Marcus Tudor and you get the challenge Topp XX are up against.
On the other hand, Topp XX will bring all their experience into this game which makes it most interesting.
Led by Travis Waterton and Carlos Grant in the midfield and the likes of Keion Hall and Jamal Bentick up front with Omari Gordon defending and in goal Gregory Hinds, Topp XX will be a tough lot.
Two more matches will be played on Sunday at the same venue.
