According to information received by MiyVue.com, work on the upgrading of the playing surface at the football stadium in Warner Park was not completed in time for matches to be held at the facility.
This publication understands that the Government, through the Ministry of Sports, started work on the field during the Christmas period, but the upgrading process is yet to be completed.
SKNFA Office Manager Dexter Tyrell explained that the local football body had planned to resume matches at Warner Park this weekend, however, upon an inspection late last evening the association came to the decision that the conditions were unplayable for the safety of the players.
Further, Tyrell indicated that the association brought in an expert to inspect the outfield and he, too, was not satisfied with the conditions of the field.
With the football stadium being used as a multi-purpose facility, the surface has begun to deteriorate, and with that, the sports ministry undertook the challenge of upgrading field.
As a consequence, matches in the Premier Division would continue to be played at the New Town soccer field until the surface at Warner Park is in a playable condition.
Action resumes Friday, 6th January, with Winners Circle United coming up against Rams Village Superstars from 7 p.m. On Saturday 7th February, from 6 p.m., Mantab would do battle against St. Paul’s, and Cayon will face a stern challenge from third place St Peter’s.
And on Sunday, SPD United will lay challenge to Garden Hotspurs from 4 p.m., and Trinity United and Conaree will close out the weekend encounters from 6 p.m.
