Kingston Wharves hunt historic four-straight in NADB Business House League
Defending champions Kingston Wharves will be looking for a historic four-peat when they start their title defence against arch-rivals Wray & Nephew Limited as the 2017 National Association of Domino Bodies (NADB)/Wray & Nephew White Overproof Rum Kingston & St Andrew Region Business House League gets cracking today with matches in both divisions.
Kingston Wharves, who are unbeaten in 33 laegue games since 2014, will welcome their opponents at their home base at King Port Building in their Division One contest. It should be a walk in the park for the champions as Kingston Wharves are yet to be tested by their Wray & Nephew Limited opponents in their previous four games and should set the tone for the remainder of the tournament. Kingston Wharves are also the Knockout champions.
Campari, who were runners-up to Kingston Wharves for the last two seasons, should also get off to a winning start when they host Division Two champions Urban Development Corporation (UDC) at 234 Spainsh Town Road. Unlike Kingston Wharves, Campari will be tested every inch of the way by their stubborn opponents. However, with experience and consistency, Campari should come out on top albeit after a close battle.
Jamaica Urban Transist Company (JUTC) should see their road licences being taken away when they travel to 228 Spanish Town Road to face 2013 champions Seprod.
In other Division One matches, Digicel’s signal will have to be strong if they are to step with National Baking Company at Half-Way-Tree Road; National Commercial Bank (NCB) should make light work of Petrojam while the game between Carib Cement and
Gleaner could go either way with the former getting the nod.
In the lower division, demoted National Housing Trust (NHT) should have their roofs replaced by newcomers Registrar General’s Department (RGD) at 40 Duke Street in Kingston. The ever-consistent Ministry of Finance (MOF) will have their hands full when they welcome a dangerous Cari-Med at 30 National Heroes’ Circle; Jamaica Observer should easily write off newcomers Sagicor Limited at home at 40-42 1/2 Beechwood Avenue in Kingston; Stewart’s Auto Parts host newcomers Jamaica Pre-Mix in a game that can go either way and Nutrition Products should send Port Authority of Jamaica packing at 6 Marcus Garvey Drive.
All matches are scheduled to begin at approximately 6:30 pm. Home teams are required to provide refreshments for both sides.
