Coaches promise top level Manning final
Miguel Coley, the coach of defending champion Manning Cup champions Jamaica College (JC), and his counter-part, Vassell Reynolds of Wolmer's Boys, have both predicted that their teams will be at their optimum best when the schools face off in the final on Saturday.
The two coaches were speaking at the inaugural FLOW/ISSA Manning Cup final press conference at the Jamaica Football Federation headquarters yesterday.
JC are seeking a fourth straight title and their 28th overall and although Coley was tight-lipped about his tactics for the game, he expects his team and players to turn up with their 'A' game on Saturday. And despite winning the last three titles, he says they are still very hungry for success.
"At Jamaica College we understands that success means more success. Excellence is going out there every single time and optimising their ability. This is the final and we are happy to be here," he said.
"Our intention is to be the number one school, not only in Jamaica but in the Caribbean," he added.
Wolmer's have waited 22 years for their 11th hold on the title and although midfielder Yannick Elliot has been carrying a knock, Reynolds is confident his team will come with their best game on Saturday.
"We expect to see both teams at their best really," he reasoned. "but this is a final and we cannot predict how the youngsters will go out there and deliver, but I know both teams will be prepared for the occasion," he said.
"From a coach's point of view, I hope they (both teams) display their true potential for the football lovers, the JC and Wolmer's fans. The Wolmer's team has played the most games and we have done a tremendous job in terms of recuperation and nutrition. So I think we should be ready physically and ... I am certain that once we deliver our best game we will be victors," he stated..
