Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS - Marc Stamp Gleaner Writer

THE OP­ER­A­TIONS Com­mit­tee of the Pre­mier League Clubs As­so­ci­a­tion (PLCA) will be in­spect­ing the play­ing fields of all 12 clubs in the Red Stripe Pre­mier League (RSPL) fol­low­ing the re­cent poor weather associated with hur­ri­cane Matthew.

The in­spec­tion is ex­pected to take place be­fore Friday to de­ter­mine the level of readi­ness of the venues af­ter the pas­sage of the weather system.

Matches orig­i­nally sched­uled for last Sunday have been post­poned and a new date is yet to be de­cided by the PLCA.

How­ever, the league will re­sume this Sunday, Oc­to­ber 9 with the orig­i­nal fix­ture in­volv­ing six games.

“We nor­mally have in­spec­tion of the fields, and this will be done by week­end with a team from the op­er­a­tions com­mit­tee,” Franz Walker, PLCA league di­rec­tor in­formed The Gleaner yes­ter­day.

‘NO STRONG WINDS’

“There were no strong winds usu­ally associated with a hur­ri­cane, so the team will just look at fields to de­ter­mine whether they are okay for games,” he also said.

The games sched­uled for Sunday reads: Ar­nett Gar­dens FC host­ing Port­more at the An­thony Spauld­ing Sports Com­plex; Tivoli Gar­dens welcoming Maver­ley-Hugh­en­den to the Ed­ward Seaga Com­plex; Hum­ble Lion and Mon­tego Bay United squar­ing off at Ef­fortville Com­mu­nity Cen­tre in May Pen; Boys’ Town vs Ja­malco FC at Barbican Com­plex; Har­bour View play­ing Water­house at Har­bour View Sta­dium and Reno and UWI meet­ing at Frome.
