Mr.S.K.Elilventhan, Principal of Jaffna Central College extends his wishes to the 110th Encounter between Jaffna Central College and Jaffna St.John's College which starts on 10th March 2016.
Indeed, it is my fortune to work out the Central - St. John’s annual Cricket Encounter. The Encounter has been a Big Match until now, but this year Centralite Cricketers have turned up in numbers from abroad to supplement the Battle of the North in the Central Bicentenary year – 2016, thereby it becomes Bigger.
Moreover, we are naming a Block at the premises where Central was when Cricket and Football were introduced into Jaffna by Fredric Webster and Gabriel Leese respectively in 1881 & 1894; thereby the Bigger Match has manifested into the Biggest Match of the North.
I wish the teams of both Colleges every success.
