CLUBS that qualify for the Telekom S-league (TSL) championship have begun serious training ahead of the premier league which is set to start next month.
Solomon Warriors, Western United, Koloale, KOSSA, Marist Fire, Guadalcanal, Real Kakamora, West Honiara and Malaita Kingz are the nine clubs that will be competing this year.
The S-league champs Solomon Warriors are eyeing another history record in the championship after winning the TSL for the third time.
Warriors so far hold the best record in the TSL, having won the TSL title three times and the season’s championship three times.
But Warriors understands it will not be an easy ride as all teams are prepared to have a shot for the title after missing out on the fifth TSL title.
Previous TSL champs, Western United will also be gunning for a shot for victory in this championship.
The team finished second and will be led by one of the country’s finest, Henry Fa’arodo Junior and for sure will be a threat to other teams after a strong but late come back in the second round of the TSL competition.
Marist FC and KOSSA who finished fourth are also reported back in training.
These four top teams in the S-league will take on the bottom four with the first placed team taking on the eighth place team and the second will play the seventh and so forth.
New comers, West Honiara FC and Guadalcanal FC will also be looking to make their mark for the first time in the league.
