Sierra Leone Premier League to resume in January

November 30, 2021

The Sierra Leone Premier League Board have announced last Friday that play would resume on January 7 2022 after a month break.

According to a press release from the PLB, registration of players has already commenced and it is expected to end on the 31st December 2021.

The PLB statement reads:”The Sierra Leone Premier League Board will like to inform the public that the second round of the 2020/21 premier league season will start on 7 January 2022.

“Accordingly, the transfer and registration of players have commenced effective immediately and will close at midnight on Friday 31st December 2021.”

Meanwhile, Jose Solomon Cortes’s Bo Rangers are sitting at the top of the log with 35 points after seventeen first-round matches thanks to Central Parade 1-0 over East End Lions on Sunday courtesy of Musa Bangura only goal at the Siaka Steven Stadium.

Bangura’s goal came in the 45th-minute, assisted by Man of the Match midfielder Kassim Turay.

The Southern Province side, on their part, has been on top gear defeating the Republic of Sierra Leone Armed Forces outfit by 2-0 with goals from top league scorer Musa Noah Tombo and Lamin Kargbo in their final first-round game on Saturday at the Bo Stadium.

It was a tough defeat for East End Lions, who lost to third-place side Central Parade as they have failed to win in their last three league outings.

Another interesting result was the East End Tigers 1-0 win in Koidu Town in the Eastern Province of Sierra Leone to wrap their first lap.

Northern Province giant Wusum Stars stay fourth on 29 points, six behind leaders Rangers and four adrift of Lions in second.

FC Kallon is still in the race after 17 matches with 28 points seven adrift from the top, but they will have to improve their winning run in the second round. The Cavaliers suffered a home defeat to Diamond Stars in their last league outing.
