MONTEGO BAY, St James — Favourites Flanker United and King Gate FC will meet in the final of the St James Football Association/Guardian Group Division Two competition after completing semi-final victories earlier this week.

Flanker United came from a goal down to beat Better Tomorrow 4-1 in their return-leg semi-final at UDC Field on Tuesday for a 10-2 aggregate win, while King Gate FC had an aggregate 5-2 win over Rose Mount FC following their 2-1 result, also coming from a goal back, on Wednesday.

The final will be decided on July 28 at UDC Field, while both finalists have also earned qualification to Division One next season.
