FALMOUTH, Trelawny - Former champions Holland United will lead the way into Sunday's first leg semi-finals of the Trelawny Football Association's National Rums of Jamaica Major League at the Elliston Wakeland Centre.

Holland who topped the points tables after the preliminaries with 53 points, seven more than second placed Duanvale FC, will play Clarks Town in the second game of the double- header.

Duanvale and Kinloss will face off in the first game set to start at 1:30pm.

Four points separated five teams as Kinloss finished with 38 points, one more than Clarks Town, who edged Jackson Town on goal difference for the last semi-final place.

Prospect Links had 36 points and Granville, the early leaders, had 24 in seventh place.

Holland who are coming off a 1-0 win over Spicy Hill on Sunday, has a winning record over Clarks Town this season, beating them 1-0 in the first round game before drawing 2-2 in the return game.

Duanvale and Kinloss had split their season series, either team winning 1-0 at home.

The return leg of the semi-final will be played next week Saturday, May 26, with the winners on aggregate over both legs meeting in the finals set for June 3 and 10.

The winner will automatically be promoted to next season's Western Confederation Super League.



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