Jimmy De Rozario

SIBU: The Sarawak Central Region Soccer League 2019 quarter-finals line-up was completed on Sunday and is set to kick-off early next month.

Joint organising chairman Jimmy De Rozario warned the last eight teams that they cannot afford the slightest error in the July 6-14 knockout round.

“The quarter finals will start next week. We hope that all teams will play their best in the elimination round.

“Hopefully all managers and coaches will be going all out with quality games and play with fairness,” he told The Borneo Post yesterday.

The quarter-finalists are Projek, V8, Sessang FC, TMP SB, Nangka United, R13 FT, P206 and Despacito FC.

He added that the preliminary rounds will be completed by this week, with three more games to go.

The five-month long league, which started in February, is jointly organised by Nangka Social, Culture, Sports and Unity Secretariat, PBB Youth Sibu and Nangka Service Centre.

Prize money for the top four teams are RM15,000, RM5,000, RM2,000 and RM1,000.

The Golden Boot (top scorer) and Golden Hand (best goalkeeper) will receive RM1,000 each.
