Harbour View manager pleads for fan support
Harbour View FC Red Stripe Premier League manager Oneal Johnson has said that the team could turn its season around with more support from its fans.
The Stars of the East ended their four-game losing streak with a 1-0 win over Waterhouse at the Drewsland Stadium on Sunday night, thanks to Kemar Bennett's 89th-minute goal.
The three points move the Ludlow Bernard-coached team up one spot to eighth, with 30 points, 11 behind sixth-place Arnett Gardens, who currently hold the last play-off spot. Johnson is hoping the result can now spur on the club's fan base.
"I do believe if we get more support, especially at our home games, from Harbour View and surrounding communities, the team will perform better," he said.
He added that the Harbour View fans have been loyal over the years, but he believes that the team could benefit from a larger regular turnout at the Harbour View Mini Stadium in order to help the team at home, as many points have been dropped at The Compound this season.
"Although we have received the communities' support in the past, we're asking them to come out to the home games and cheer on their boys to encourage them further," Johnson said.
"We would like to thank the community of Harbour View for the support so far. We really appreciate it and will keep working hard to not disappoint them."
