YORK REGION FAVOURED FOR CSL TITLE ……….Full playoff schedule this upcoming weekend

York Region Shooters  will be aiming this weekend to begin a repeat of their outstanding performance of 2014, a season when the team just north of Toronto won the CSL First Division and went on to capture the CSL Championship.

Much can be said of expansion team FC Ukraine United which finished the runner-up in the First Division table following a tough schedule against some seasoned campaigners.
