The 2017-2018 season of the top two Kingston and St Andrew Football Association (KSAFA) competitions come to an end today and a lot will be at stake.

Both the finals of the Major League and the Super League will be contested at the Constant Spring Field. The cost for admission to the finals is only $500.

Constant Spring FC will do battle with Meadforest FC at 6:30 pm in the Magnum Major League final and that game will be followed by the Magnum Super League final between Brown's Town FC and Barbican FC.

New President Wayne Shaw, who is serving in his first full term as head of the association, is pleased with the way the season has gone so far, suggesting that both the standard of play and the competitiveness of the leagues have been better than previous seasons.

A number of clubs from both competitions have shown better levels of organisation, according to Shaw.

“Barbican, Molynes United, Brown's Town, Meadforest, Constant Spring, Bull Bay and Central Kingston are some of the teams that have shown really good organisation this season, so it is no surprise that four of these teams that I have mentioned will contest the respective finals tonight.”

With both Major League teams guaranteed passage to the Super League next season by virtue of making the final, Shaw is expecting an opening and engaging encounter as the two teams battle for the top prize.

The Super League final, however, is not expected to be the same, as a lot more is on the line for the winner of the feature encounter.

“Too much is at stake for the Super League teams, so I think the teams will be defensive and try to score on the counter attack,” Shaw suggested.

The winner of the Super League final will go on to represent KSAFA in the Premier League play-offs that begin on Sunday, June 3. Boys' Town were relegated from the Premier League but the KSAFA President believes that the same number of teams will represent the most powerful football confederation next season.

“With the quality shown on the field this season, either of the two teams should represent KSAFA well in the play-offs and go on to qualify for the Premier League,” he said.

Billed as the “KSAFA Combo”, fans can expect two engaging finals at the Constant Spring Field tonight.
