THE Guyana Police Force’s football team will face Riddim Squad while Uitvlugt will tackle Santos today, when action in the Hamilton Green Cup Knock-Out football tournament continues at the Den Amstel Ground, West Coast Demerara.
In the opening match from 14:00hrs, the lawmen, just a winning streak in the just-concluded Corona tournament which they won, will be seeking a place in the quarter-final round of this tournament with the aim of carting off the $500,000 fir st prize money and trophy.
However, they will have to be wary of Riddim Squad whose attack will be led by Kevin Agard and Teon Jones, while Seon Hope, Kevin Gordon and Lyliton Ramsay will lead the support from midfield.
The team’s defence will be marshalled by Mark Gilkes, Dorville Stewart and Orville Stewart.
In the feature game from 16:00hrs, both Uitvlugt of West Coast Demerara and Santos of Georgetown will also be seeking to book their places in the quarter-final round, but only one team (the winner) will be able to advance and this makes this game, like the opening fixture, a must see as it promises much excitement.
Meanwhile, Den Amstel, Soesdyke Falcons and Ann’s Grove booked their quarter-final spots last Sunday with victories over Golden Grove, Mahaica Determinators and Buxton Bakewell, respectively at the Victoria ground, East Coast Demerara.
Den Amstel of West Coast Demerara beat ECD’s Golden Grove 2-0, while Soesdyke Falcons of East Bank Demerara (EBD) defeated Mahaica Determinators 4-2 and Ann’s Grove (ECD) edged their ECD counterparts Buxton Bakewell 1-0 in the feature game.
The winners of the Santos versus Uitvlugt game will meet Soesdyke Falcons in the quarter-final round and Den Amstel will face Ann’s Grove next Sunday at the Georgetown Football Club.
Also on that date, Western Tigers will meet Milerock and the home side GFC will oppose Eagles United.
The tournament is being coordinated by former national player/coach Lennox Arthur.
