Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS - Marc Stamp Gleaner Writer

JA­MAICA MEN’S na­tional se­nior foot­ball team will en­gage Suri­name in a top-of-the-ta­ble clash in Group One of the Sco­tia Bank CFU Caribbean Cup qual­i­fiers to de­ter­mine which team ad­vance to the 2017 com­pe­ti­tion as well as the CONCACAF Gold Cup tour­na­ment.

The game will be played on Sun­day at the Na­tional Sta­dium, start­ing at 6 p.m.

Both teams are joint lead­ers in the three team group on three points apiece, so based on the com­pe­ti­tion’s rule, it will be a play to the fin­ish en­counter.

The game was orig­i­nally sched­uled on Oc­to­ber 5 at the An­thony Spauld­ing Com­plex in Trench Town, but resched­uled due to safety con­cerns re­gard­ing Hur­ri­cane Matthew.

Nine over­seas based Reg­gae Boyz ar­rived in the is­land yes­ter­day and will be join­ing the camp to be­gin prepa­ra­tion this morn­ing at 8:00 to be fol­lowed by an­other ses­sion at 4 p.m. at the Sta­dium East Com­plex.

The over­seas play­ers are Damion Lowe, Omar Hol­ness, Owayne Gor­don, Shaun Fran­cis, Ryan Thomp­son, Oneil Fisher, Cory Burke, Michael Binns and Ro­mario Wil­liams.

They joined lo­cal based play­ers – Ladale Ritchie, Dwayne Am­burse­ley, Al­lan Ottey, Dino Wil­liams, Ewan Gran­di­son, An­drew Vanzie, Rosario Har­riott, Di­coy Wil­liams and Ro­han Richards.

Ja­maica will look for their sec­ond win in the group as they had de­feated Guyana 4-2 on Oc­to­ber 11 in Guyana. The Guyanese are out of con­tention as they also went down to Suri­name.

Mean­while, tick­ets for the game will go on sale this Saturday, cost­ing $1,500 for grand­stand and $700 for bleach­ers. Out­lets are: York Phar­macy in Half-Way Tree; To­tal ser­vice sta­tions lo­cated at Stan­ton Ter­race and Dun­robin Av­enue; Ja­maica Pe­ga­sus Ho­tel in New Kingston; and Cap­tain’s Bak­ery and Grill in Down­town and Cross Roads.
