The 2017 Veterans Tournament is on the way. This weekend, a number of matches will be held as teams attempt to qualify for the tournament proper. On the weekend and in the coming week, Labowe Connexions, Choiseul Veterans, La Clery, Canaries, Marchand, and Vieux Fort North will all be in action. These teams will be fighting for the final four spots, in what is expected to be the biggest Veterans tournament in St. Lucia’s history.
While these teams are in action, a number of the teams who have already qualified will be engaged in warm up matches. This Sunday, before the play off matches, one of the pre-tournament favorites Soufriere Veterans, will come up against former champions Caricom Masters at 1:00 pm. At 2:00 pm, another team to look out for in this year’s competition Central Vieux Fort, will come against Micoud Veterans. In the final warm up match before the qualification round kicks off, Francis “Baba” Lastic and the Gros-Islet Veterans will come up against Laborie Veterans.
All this action, is scheduled for the Phillip Marcellin Grounds in Vieux Fort.
