The Secondary Schools Football League is one of the most exciting sporting events on the schools’ calendar of activities.

It’s that one time of year that students, football fans or not, rally together to support their teams. The rivalry is usually intense on and off the field. Potential football stars battle each other on the field for bragging rights while vociferous fans, male and female, uniformed and in mufti, beat drums and chant age-old battle songs to spur their sides on.

The air is usually electric with excitement and if nothing else, the lime is a good one with eye candy galore for those needing a visual break from the field.

The 2005 SSFL promises to live up to expectations. The first games have provided the required fodder to keep supporters salivating for more. In the games that have already been played, reigning champions St. Anthony’s College went down 3-2 to Mucurapo Senior Comprehensive in a thrilling North zone game. In the South Naparima College registered the biggest winning margin with an 8-1 clobbering over Mayaro.
