Duckie's future at Humble Lion to be decided

Donovan Duckie is still head coach of Humble Lion Football Club, at least until the club's directors meet to review the 2016-17 Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) season.

"I run a professional club. He (Duckie) is still my coach," President of Humble Lion Mike Henry told STAR Sports in an interview recently when quizzed about the status of Duckie.

Duckie has faced a rough patch over the last few weeks. After coaching the team to the top of the regular Red Stripe Premier League season for the first time with two points, the team was eliminated from the competition at the knockout stage after losing to Arnett Gardens in the two-legged semi-finals.

In addition to earning 61 points in the regular season, the Clarendon-based club was also the best defensive and most consistent.

"I already have the manager's report and awaiting the coach and captain's reports as well," Henry told STAR Sports.

However, Henry said he would not make public the timeline on a decision on the future of Duckie at Humble Lion.

"I won't make public when the decision on the coach will be made," Henry informed.

It was the third time Duckie had guided Humble Lion to the semi-finals of the RSPL without a title win.

Duckie has had a long career in coaching, but has yet to win the Premier League title after also coaching at Waterhouse FC, Star Cosmos and Portmore United.
