Confident Cornwall - Coach says loss of key players won't hurt chances
Dr Dean Weatherly, coach of DaCosta Cup champions Cornwall College, says he has a strong squad, despite having lost key players from last year, including Jordain Fletcher.
"We have so far managed to retain 80 per cent of our winning squad ... and also, people want to join us. Players normally want to come and join us because of our rich history," Weatherly said.
Last season, Jordain Fletcher formed a key part of the Cornwall College's offence, along with strike partners Garnet Hudson and Aiden Jokomba, who are still enrolled at the school.
Fletcher, the Golden Boot winner, helped Cornwall to the DaCosta Cup title and to the finals of the FLOW Super Cup. Attacking midfielder Peter Lee Vassell, goalkeeper Jamario Hinds, and defender Howard Dent have also moved on from the school.
Team captain Geovaughni Reid told WESTERN STAR that Hudson and Jokomba would again be playing up front, and that there are other quality players in the line-up.
"We have other players that can come in for them and do good as well. They have been working together since under-14 and under-16 [competitions], and so they have good chemistry," he said.
