Veteran striker Jermain 'Tuffy' Anderson says he is ready to stay on and fight for a place on the Waterhouse FC team for the upcoming Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) season scheduled to kick off on September 4.

Anderson turned up for his first training session in pre-season on Monday at the Duhaney Park playing field under the guidance of new coach Marvin Tate.

"I started training (pre-season) on Monday. Now, it is up to the new coach (Marvin Tate) for selection of players. But, I'm ready to give it my all as usual for Waterhouse," the 37-year-old Anderson told STAR Sports yesterday.

With the club's new focus on exposing young players for the overseas market, it is unclear whether Anderson will be a regular player this season.

"We have a new focus and that is to get young players deals overseas. This is the new direction for the club," Waterhouse's general secretary Richard 'Spoon' McCallum informed last month.

'Tuffy' has scored 73 goals for Waterhouse since moving from Montego Bay's Wadadah in 2009. He is yet to win the national league title. He also represented Village United, Seba and CD Aguila in El Salvador.
