No pity! - Henry serves warning on last-place Maverley
HUMBLE Lion chairman Mike Henry said his club will not let up in their quest for silverware this season, sending a warning to University of the West Indies (UWI) and Maverley-Hughenden, teams at opposite ends of the Premier League standings.
Humble Lion are second on 57 points, one adrift of leaders UWI in the race for the $1 million bounty awarded to the team that ends the preliminary rounds on most points.
Henry is oozing confidence that his team will be number one and will show no mercy in their two remaining games, especially against last-place Maverley-Hughenden, considering Tivoli Gardens, who they will also face, are third on 52 points.
"Being second best for Mike Henry and Humble Lion is not a question," Henry said about his club's intention to win the $1 million bonus, and ultimately, the $2.5 million top prize and trophy.
"I think the club has enough depth. The coach must produce the results," the Humble Lion chairman warned.
"We are going at the $1 million first, then the championship trophy and winning prize money. We will not rest players. The players will get majority of the prize monies," he pointed out.
The tide seems to be in Humble Lion's favour as UWI have not won in their last two games. Humble Lion closed the gap with a 2-1 win against Jamalco in their last match.
UWI face two tough rivals, wounded champions Montego Bay United and last year's beaten finalists, Portmore United, to end their preliminary round.
'They (UWI) are playing stronger teams but we won't take any team lightly. The ambition is to win the title for the first time in the club's history," he said.
