peat the premier league title as they have done for the FA Cup and President’s Cup. But Village

Six playoff thus far and an excellent streak in round 2 of the premier league. Now both teams
will duke for the coveted title and the grand prize of $50,000, starting on Saturday at 8 pm at the
Warner Park. At a pre-match press conference on Thursday at Warner Park, players and

Manager Austin Lewis encouraged fans to come out in their numbers to support their teams.  

“I would like to ask the fans of both teams to come out and support your club to the fullest. As
simple as we may see it, each time we go there we put our lives at risk to entertain you guys. So
let us come out and support our teams respectfully and at the end of the day football be the
winner,” Lewis said., player Jamal Jeffers and Village’s President MJ Byron and Coach Steven
Clarke. St. Paul’s Captain Jamal Jeffers spoke about the level of training his teammates endue as

Paul’s from winning a third consecutive Premier League title. “As you know, we are trying to
stop the three-peat. Nobody has ever three-peated in the SKNFA (Premier League) yet and it
surely won’t happen with Village Superstars in the finals. So that is our stance and our goal
coming this weekend,” he said.
