FALMOUTH, Trelawny - Former champions Holland United and first- time finalists Kinloss FC will meet in the two-way finals of the Trelawny Football Association's National Rums of Jamaica Major League finals starting on Sunday at the Elliston Wakeland Centre, after completing semi-final wins last weekend.

Holland United got by Clarks Town 5-2 on aggregate, despite losing 2-1 in their return leg last Sunday at Elliston Wakeland, while Kinloss prevailed by a 2-0 score after holding mid-season champions Duanvale to a 0-0 draw Sunday.

The teams are seeking a place in next season's Western Confederation Super League and will meet in the return leg on June 10, also at Elliston Wakeland.

Holland who were losing mid-season champions has a psychological advantage over Kinloss, after winning their first meeting this season 2-1 and drew the other game 0-0.

Ronique Haynes and Warren Dixon will lead the Kinloss FC attack against the best defence in the league after giving up just 11 goals in 22 games. Nelson Adams, Roniel Cole and Hugh-George Watson will be the players expected to score the goals for Holland United.

On Sunday in the return leg semis-finals, Holland who had won the first leg 4-0, took the lead through Cole in the 17th minute, before Dwayne Brown and Lloyd James scored in the 50th and 77th minutes to give Clarks Town a consolation win.



Do you think an increase in JUTC bus fares is justified at this time?
