Boys' Town play Vere Technical at 6.30
Final match of tour at 8.00

THE TRINIDAD All-Colleges football team play their final match of their Jamaica tour tonight, as they take a second crack at Jamaica schoolboy champions, Kingston College, at the National Stadium at 8.00.

The Trinidadian team have so far lost their two matches both 1-2 to Jamaica's Under 19 team and the Kingston College squad.

On Thursday night the visitors outplayed the Under-19 team but the Jamaicans gained first hold on the Trophy presented by the sponsors of the tour—Jamaica Mutual Life Assurance Society.

The visitors ace-schemer-shooter inside left Everald Cummings got good support from his other forwards in the last match, especially from Kenny Josephs the speedy inside right, and outside left Ellis Sadaphal and together they made huge gaps in the Under-19 defence. Goalkeeper Leslie Lucas did a good job between the sticks.

The Kingston College defence is built around centre half Franklyn Morant, who has been a constant tower of strength. Lloyd McLean at inside left, Trevor Harris at centre-forward and outside right Neville Oxford have shown that they are quite capable of splitting the Trinidad defence, spearheaded by centre-half Wayne Jackson.

One thing is certain tonight is that the Purple and White boys will not have things as
easy as on Tuesday night as the Red-clad Trinidadians are determined to break the Jamaicans dominance.

The first match will be between DaCosta Cup champions Vere Technical and Boys' Town at 6.30. This match should provide a lot of interest for the spectators, as both teams play the "tick-tock" brand of soccer.
