Positions to play for as fixtures continue

With no confirmed cases of the coronavirus on the island, the Bermuda Football Association is going ahead with this weekend's round of league matches.

Devonshire Colts, favourites to win the First Division title, will be the first team to complete their season when they meet St David's today at Lord's (3pm).

Robin Hood will play PHC in a Premier Division match tonight at Goose Gosling Field where both teams are trying for another top two finish now that the league title has already been wrapped up by North Village.

Hood, second in each of the last four seasons, hold down second place on goal difference over Dandy Town with two games remaining while PHC are a further four points back in fourth place. Town meet relegated side Boulevard tomorrow at Goose Gosling Field.

One issue still to be decided in the Premier Division is at the other end of the table where at least three teams are battling to avoid being relegated with Boulevard.

Southampton Rangers host new league champions North Village at Southampton Oval while Somerset Eagles, second from bottom, take on Devonshire Cougars at White Hill and X-Roads welcome Somerset Trojans to Garrison Field.

Somerset and Rangers, who are awaiting a decision from the BFA on their match that was abandoned on March 1, are just a point ahead of Eagles in the standings.

In the First Division, a win for Devonshire Colts would keep them at least three points ahead of St George's who have two games remaining. They meet Flanagan's Onions at Goose Gosling Field tomorrow before playing Vasco next weekend in their final match.

Other First Division matches tomorrow will see Hamilton Parish playing Ireland Rangers and Young Men's Social Club taking on Wolves at St John's Field.

n St David's match with Hamilton Parish next weekend has been brought forward to the Saturday at Wellington Oval (12.30pm) because Lord's will be closed to prepare for the upcoming Fiqre Crockwell Cricket Expo.
