Parish target top spot

Hamilton Parish will be looking to replace Devonshire Cougars at the top of the Premier Division tomorrow.

Parish host bottom team Southampton Rangers at Wellington Oval and victory will move them a point clear of Cougars at the top.

Cougars and sixth-placed St George's Colts are not playing this weekend having already played their first league meeting back on October 10. The remaining Premier fixtures that weekend and the following were postponed due to hurricanes Fay and Gonzalo.

Parish are coming off a 2-1 loss to PHC Zebras in the Friendship Trophy earlier this week while Rangers suffered a home defeat by the same scoreline against Somerset in the league last weekend.

Zebras, who are presently on a three-game losing streak in the league, will be keen to stay within touching distance of the pace setters when they face third -placed Robin Hood who are coached by Kyle Lightbourne, the former PHC winger, at Southampton Oval.

Remaining Premier matches will see champions Dandy Town host North Village at St John's Field tomorrow, while Flanagan's Onions and Somerset Trojans do battle tonight at Goose Gosling Field.

In First Division action tomorrow, Boulevard Community Club will be looking to maintain their lead when they host X-Roads at Police Field.

Any slip ups by Boulevard could see nearest rivals Devonshire Colts knock them off the top if they can beat bottom team Ireland Rangers at Malabar Field.

Elsewhere, Somerset Eagles host Young Men's Social Club at White Hill Field, while BAA and Paget Lions play at Goose Gosling Field.
