ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Whilst they will have to wait for the Official Presentation of the Trophy, the Islanders secured a 4th consecutive BVI Football Association (BVIFA) National League title with a 2-1 win over the Rebels FC on Sunday January 29, 2017.

Needing at least a point to deny the Sugar Boys, who beat Old Madrid 4-1 the previous day, a chance of sneaking the Championship, the Islanders went ahead in the first half through Fitzroy Daley. However, Joel Williams equalised and it was left to talisman, Avondale Williams to calmly slot home the winner from the edge of the box.

There are still games to play on Wednesday February 1, 2017 and at the weekend, but at the conclusion of the last game of the season, the Sugar Boys against the Islanders, the presentations will be made.

Goals galore for Sugar Boys

Sugar Boys had applied a little bit of pressure on the Islanders with a comfortable victory on Saturday against the Old Madrid side, with Mohamed Kachour scoring a hat trick and going joint top of the Golden Boot table on 11 goals.

The other goals came from Akeem Hendrikson and a Sugar Boys own goal.

Kevin Fisher of the Islanders also has 11, as does Richard Morgan of One Love.

Despite defeat, the Rebels guaranteed themselves a top four finish as did One Love with a 2-0 victory against the Panthers, courtesy of Goals from Morgan and Uriah Junior Baptiste

The Wolues 4-0 win over VG United began the penultimate weekend’s action with goals from Kevin Carragher, Giovanni Di Biaise (2) and Omar Elliston sealing a comfortable win.

On Wednesday Night at 7:00 P.M. on the A.O. Shirley Ground, the Rebels will play Sugar Boys.
