Regional Under-17 Tournament begins on Tuesday
SCARBOROUGH, Trinidad – Holders Trinidad & Tobago will battle traditional sports rivals Barbados at Louidore when the Regional Under-17 Tournament opens on Tuesday here.
Jamaica face Windward Islands at Shaw Park and Guyana meet Leeward Islands at Bon Accord in the other first round matches of the tournament.
The Regional Under-17 Tournament – in its third year – will be contested under a round-robin format, featuring five rounds of 50 overs-a-side matches with the team accumulating the most points being declared champions.
T&T captured the second edition of the Tournament staged last year here, by topping the points table following victories over Leewards, Windwards, Barbados and Guyana. Their only loss came against Jamaica. The Barbadians narrowly edged out the Windwards for second spot, with Leewards, inaugural champions Jamaica and Guyana following.
