Unable to field team, Halifax City bows out of league

One of Nova Scotia’s top women’s teams has removed itself from the Nova Scotia Soccer League Premiership.

One of Nova Scotia’s top women’s teams has removed itself from the Nova Scotia Soccer League Premiership.

Halifax City, which captured a Jubilee Trophy as national senior champions two years ago and has won two of the past three Premiership crowns, folded earlier this month because it was unable to field a team, a league spokesman said.

The move leaves the Premiership with seven teams, including four in the Halifax area: Defending champion Halifax Dunbrack, Halifax County, Dartmouth United and Suburban, formerly known as Scotia. Cape Breton, Highland and Valley round out the rest of the league.
