GROUP C of the ISSA/LIME Manning Cup is arguably the most open of the seven zones with no clear-cut favourites. In fact, it could also be deemed the weakest of the groups. Two-time champions Tivoli Gardens — winners in 1976 and 1999 — and 1991 champion Ardenne High are the only two schools with pedigree in this group. But they are far from being championship contenders. The emerging Denham Town High and Innswood High are the two seeded teams based on last year's performances and the six-team group is completed by Edith Dalton James High and St Mary's College. The Industrial Terrace-based Tivoli Gardens High are a shadow of the once powerful West Kingston school, having finished at the bottom of Group E last year with just four points from 10 games.
