Excelsior High coach Shavar Thomas has warned his rivals that his players are nowhere near full potential just yet and will get better in the latter part of the ISSA-FLOW Manning Cup season.

According to the former Reggae Boyz skipper, he has "given the players more freedom to play and enjoy their game," as this was lacking before.

"My thing is that, when I came here, what the players lacked most of all is the ability and freedom to express themselves, and that is what we armed them with, and just to go out there and enjoy the game and play football," he said.

Excelsior head Group A ahead of St George's College and the coach is eyeing nothing less than winning his group and qualifying for the FLOW Super Cup.

"Trust me; it's astronomical in terms of the players' ability to get better and better. Getting them fit, staying injury free, and playing good football is our plan. Trust me, they haven't 'maxed' out their potential as yet," Thomas told STAR Sports.

Excelsior put an end to St George's unbeaten run at Winchester Park last Friday. They now lead the group with 19 points, one more than the many-time winners St George's. Both have played seven games and will now meet in a crucial match to decide the group winners.
