Play in the 2019 ISSA da’Costa Cup continues later today with another ten matches across the western end of the island from Zones ‘A’ to ‘D’.

Anchovy High, who raised a few eyebrows in last year’s campaign and almost made it through to the Inter Zone round, play their first home game when they line-up against the 2008 winners St. James High.

Anchovy failed to get a point off their opponents last season, losing both games and scoring just once, and they will be hoping for a turn of events this time when the two collide.

Green Pond High, who have struggled in recent years and failed to make it out of the group stage for the last four, get their season up and running against Maldon at Green Pond.

The last time they met, they shared points in a 1-1 draw. Green Pond, though playing at home, will be gunning for a winning start for the third time in as many years.

Elsewhere, 11-times champions Rusea’s enter the part in Zone ’B’ with a home fixture against  Merlene Ottey, a team they slammed 17 past in two games last campaign. Green Island against Cambridge is another game on in the Zone.
