New date for women’s league kick off


THE Honiara women’s soccer league previously fixed to get underway this weekend will have its kick off postponed for next weekend, it was revealed.

The women’s league coordinator Antoinette Miniti confirmed to SunSPORTS yesterday that the new kick off date will be June 16, which is next Saturday.

Miniti explained that the delay to the kick off was upon advisory from SIFF given the proposed match venue SIFF Academy pitch will go under a one-week maintenance work.

“Of course we have been advised to move the kick off date for a week later because the pitch will go under maintenance work.

“So instead of the kick off this weekend, teams are asked to be reminded that it is postponed for next weekend,” Miniti clarified.

A total of eight teams are competing in the 2018 season of the Honiara women’s league.

They are KGVI School, Panatina School, Koloale (2 teams), WanSol, Solomon Warriors, Marist and KOSSA.

Meanwhile, a technical meeting for the competition is rescheduled for next Tuesday at SIFF Academy.

Miniti called on partaking teams to send atleast two representatives to attend the technical meeting.

“It is important that teams must attend the technical meeting. We will deliberate on a lot of matters regarding the competition and so as draw the fixtures for the competition.”
