KINGSTON College coach, Ludlow Bernard is pleased with the team's progress over the last two seasons.

KC have advanced to the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association ISSA/FLOW Super Cup and Walker Cup Knockout competitions but Bernard said he will be taking nothing for granted but continue fighting in a competition where anything can happen.

KC easily cruised through Group G, dispatching their nearest rivals former champions Camperdown 2-1 and 2-0 and will today face the Manning Cup's best overall second placed team St Jago.

"I think there is a lot of unrevealed potential here (KC team). We are really trying to see if we can maximise it. I am really not so sure that we are giving of our best as yet, a lot of players, this is the first time they are pushing themselves and we really need to know how far they can go," Bernard said.

Bernard, a tactician who has coached at different levels, has won the Walker Cup competition with Wolmer's Boys, where he spent three seasons previously.

"I don't think (KC players) know their potential just yet. Each match they get a bigger test, each match they get more exposed, they get better, they get more matured and more serious in dealing with the Manning Cup season. After the disaster last year, they really aim to set the record straight and based on how the Manning Cup been going so far anything can happen," Bernard said.

"Same formula that we use at Wolmer's, same formula here. Only thing, hoping this time that we can strike the jackpot (win Manning Cup)," he concluded.
