Trinidad will play their second match of the current football tour against St. George's Old Boys, the Senior Knockout holders, at Sabina Park this afternoon.

The Alpha Band will be in attendance from 3.30 o'clock. The teams will be presented to the Most Rev. Thomas Emmet, S.J., D.D., at 4.15, and the kick-off will follow at 4.30 p.m.

But for "Happy" Delgado, who has been showing indifferent form recently, and the steady Roy Johnston, the right back, who is suffering from a bad foot, the "Light Blues" will be at full strength.

Arthur McKenzie & Llonsley DeLeon, only local "survivors" of the last tournament who will likely play in this tournament, will be on the side; whilst two of the schoolboys who took the field against the visitors on Saturday, will be also in the line-up today. They are Headman and Largie, back and half-back respectively.

It is interesting to note that Waldy Ricketts, Jamaica's left-back elect for Wednesday's first Colony Match, will be playing. It will be remembered he developed back trouble during instructional practice a week ago. He will be played at outside left today.

The visitors will naturally make changes in their team today. Joe Gonsalves (goalkeeper), Huggins (back), Seales (half back) and Andy Ganteaume are likely to be seen in action this afternoon.
