Chairman of Humble Lion Mike Henry says that it will be the third time lucky for his team as they intend to go to the final and win the Red Stripe Premier League for the first time.

Humble Lion are in the semi-finals for the third straight season and are scheduled to play against Arnett Gardens in the first leg of the two-way tie at the Anthony Spaulding Complex in Trench Town tonight, starting at 8.

On the previous occasions, the Effortville in Clarendon-based outfit lost to Arnett in 2014-15 and also to Portmore in 2015-16 and were eliminated at the semi-finals stage.

Henry is now oozing confidence that his team will go all the way and win the nation's elite title for the first time in their history.

After finishing the regular season on most points and being rewarded with the $1 million bonus, Henry is very confident of winning the double.

"I'm expecting them (Humble Lion) to go to the final and win. With the type of football that the team has been playing for the past weeks and the experience in the group, we are confident in going all the way," Henry told STAR Sports yesterday.

"We are pretty confident. It is important for Clarendon to win the national title. I have the utmost faith in the coaching staff and, also the administrative staff and, of course, the players," Henry added.
