Wolmer's Boys coach Vassell Reynolds has revealed no surprise at the level of daCosta Cup teams in this year's compact and intriguing ISSA/Flow Super Cup, noting his charges will have to be on their best to beat Cornwall College in tomorrow's big final.

"We have to get better; the Cornwall team runs off the ball very well. They have very good technical players; we have to put our best forward come Saturday against Cornwall," he said of the contest.

Familiar with the attacking threat and all-round ability of Cornwall, Reynolds feels his team has to stop them.

"They are playing well and it is going to be a very tough encounter, they are good in defence and they are attacking well," he said.

"I am one of the coaches who had predicted that the daCosta Cup teams had done their home work, it's not that the level of Manning Cup teams would have fallen, I thought that the teams performed very well and they deserve to have been in the semi-finals," continued the Wolmer's coach.

Wolmer's might be playing close to home in Kingston, but that does not make them favourites said Reynolds.

"I am not too certain of that, we would have won a number of hard tough games recently, and maybe based on that performance people start to give us that favourite tag but we want to remain focused, keep composed, keep our feet grounded," he reasoned.

Wolmer's qualified with a 6-5 penalty win over STETHS while Cornwall College eased past Clarendon College 4-2.

" It has been a number of tough games recently so we just have to remain focus and continue to work hard," he told Star Sports.
