ST. MARY'S COLLEGE, the premier schoolboy soccer team of Trinidad, may play a series of four games against local schoolboy teams here in December.

Idea for such a tour originated with Eric James, secretary of the British Caribbean Football Association, and the Jamaica Football Association with the approval of the headmasters of secondary schools have undertaken to run the tour.

Proposed schedule of games would pit the Trinidadians against an All Schools team, Manning Cup and Olivier Shield champions St. George's, an All-Manning XI, and a daCosta Cup XI.

St. Mary's College have for many years been the top schoolboy team in Trinidad, and also participate in the major competitions of the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association.

Plans are being made to play all the games under lights at Sabina Park.
