Waterhouse weigh up Bailey replacement options

November 02, 2017

After Waterhouse coach, Glendon 'Admiral' Bailey walked out of the club after six matches into the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) season, the Drewsland based club is said to be eyeing three possible options to replace their former coach.

According to a source close to the club, the executive has Donovan Duckie and Anthony Patrick as their first two options, with, Paul 'Tegat' Davis as a backup, if they fail to secure either of the first two.

Bailey resigned as head coach of the club on Tuesday after some poor results since the start of the season, which led to growing pressure from fans.

After six games, the former Tivoli Gardens coach is yet to taste victory and have lost his last two games, leaving fans bitter at the highly respected coach. This led to Bailey tendering his resignation after Sunday's 2-0 defeat to Cavalier FC.

Meanwhile, Duckie and Patrick are very familiar with the set up, having coached there before.

Duckie coached at Waterhouse in the 2013 season and had a fairly good stint at the club but fell out of favour with previous president, Ricky Chin.


Patrick, who then replaced Duckie, had two stints with the club. In 2013, Patrick carried the team to the RSPL final and Caribbean Football Union Club Championship title. However, the following season, things soured and he and the club parted ways before he was rehired to replace Calvert Fitzgerald, who resigned early into the 2015/2016 season..

Paul 'Tegat' Davis has no personal attachment to the club, but has worked with local clubs such as Village United, Arnett Gardens and Montego Bay United at this level, and has been impressive.

None of the three coaches are currently coaching in the RSPL.
