Bernard hoping KC can rebound

November 01, 2016

Kingston College's coach Ludlow Bernard is hoping his charges will pick up the pieces and continue their Manning Cup challenge this season, following last Saturday's FLOW Super Cup defeat by Wolmer's Boys.

According to Bernard, "the Manning Cup is what they would prefer to win, which is more traditional." KC are unbeaten in the Manning Cup.

The 'Purples' are one of the more prolific scoring teams this season, but have hit a slump in form which Bernard hopes can be corrected.

"Yeah, probably we are missing a game winner off the bench; we would have been disappointed with some players in midweek during the game against STATHS.

"We thought that we would have got better service from the replacements, but you will have seen that we stuck with the tried and proven starters in the Super Cup," Bernard told STAR SPORTS.

The 'Purples' coach feels his team will need motivation following their Wolmer's loss.

"Motivation is what we need going forward, it's not that we had a bad game," reasoned Bernard.

The coach, now in his second season at the North Street school, hopes his charges can get back to winning ways.

"They are youngsters, and they sometimes have to experience the agony of defeat and probably that will provide the impetus for them to move on," Bernard stressed.
