BFA hoping to conclude final weekend
The Bermuda Football Association is desperate to finish the football season with the final round of matches on Sunday set to determine two remaining issues.
The BFA, who is expected to make an announcement today or tomorrow, may also be considering bringing the April 5 FA Cup final between North Village and Robin Hood forward a week after the International Kappa Tournament, scheduled from March 27 to 29, was postponed because of the threat of the Covid-19 virus.
“On behalf of the Men of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc Bermuda Alumni Chapter, we have made the decision to postpone and reschedule the Kappa Classic 2020 due to the health concerns surrounding the coronavirus [Covid-19],” the organisers said on the weekend.
The penultimate round of league football went ahead on the weekend despite some other sporting events being called off, and indications are the BFA want to play this weekend’s final league games.
The league and promotion issues have been decided, but the final relegation spot and the two remaining positions for next season’s Dudley Eve Trophy will be determined after the final weekend of matches.
Five matches are scheduled for Sunday and four of them will have a bearing on the relegation picture, which involves five teams trying to avoid the drop into the First Division along with Boulevard, although it could come down to a decision by the BFA on the recently abandoned match between Somerset Trojans and Southampton Rangers.
After wins by Rangers, Somerset and Somerset Eagles last weekend, just two points separate five teams, from Devonshire Cougars in fifth place to Eagles in ninth. On Sunday, Cougars and X-Roads meet at Devonshire Recreation Club with both teams needing a victory to be certain of top-flight football next season.
Meanwhile, Somerset are away to Boulevard; Eagles take on Robin Hood at White Hill and Southampton Rangers are away to Dandy Town, who need a point to ensure a second-place finish.
