THE Telekom S-League will resume this weekend after a month break.

Solomon Islands Football Federation Competition Manager Gabriel Riotarau confirmed yesterday that four matches will be played this Saturday and Sunday.

“Just to remind all TSL club managers and coaches that according to the Turf Manager, Rubén Oimae, after assessment on Lawson Tama ground after the OFC U16 Championship, the ground is now ready for TSL matches to resume this Saturday 29th September 2018.

“Therefore, I strongly call on all TSL clubs to be ready for this weekend,” Riotarau said.

The league went on a break after entering into its fourth weekend on Sunday 26th August.

The break was to allow the national governing football body to carry out some refurbishment work on Lawson Tama stadium’s turf and changing rooms as part of their preparation to host the recent Oceania Under-16 Championship in Honiara which finally concludes last weekend.

With four weeks gone since the start of the 2018/19 season of the TSL till the break on August 26, Henderson Eels are leading the points table after three matches.

Eels gained the advantage to go to the top of the table due to their goal difference of 9+ despite equal on seven points with Western United (+7), Solomon Warriors (+4), KOSSA (-1) and Real Kakamora (-2), respectively.

Four interesting encounters are set down for this weekend.

At 2pm this Saturday will be Solomon Warriors taking on Real Kakamora and to be followed by Marist going against KOSSA at 4pm.

Western United and FC Guadalcanal will kick off Sunday’s round of matches at 2pm while at 4pm will be Malaita Kings and Henderson Eels.
