Wales and Paradise through to playoffs

Reigning Barbados Football Association (BFA) Champions Cup kings Weymouth Wales are in contention to adding another piece of silverware to their trophy cabinet.

It was the third consecutive victory for Wales who were made to use all of their quality and experience against the Division Two bound Technique FC.
