Green's departure a loss for H View - Bernard
Harbour View FC team manger, Ludlow Bernard, believes the departure of Daniel Green to Mount Pleasant FA is a big loss for the east-Kingston club this season, as he believes the player just started showing the promise they saw in him. However, he says their decision to send him out on loan is an indication of how highly they rate the 21-year-old.
Green, who made his international debut for Jamaica in a friendly international against Grenada last night, went under the radar during his two seasons at Harbour View, but shot to prominence recently after he was selected to the national senior squad. The young forward's exploits saw him earning rave reviews from coach Theodore 'Tappa' Whitmore, who praised the youngster for making the most of his opportunity and pointed to him as an example for the local national invitees.
But Bernard, who helped discover the young talent, and has seen him progress over the last two years, said the club was looking to benefit off his talent this season, but has allowed the young player to return to his home parish to represent newly promoted, high spending Mount Pleasant.
"Unfortunately, he (Green) will not be with us," Bernard said. "Mount Pleasant have requested his services and he has decided to go there. We expect good things from him, especially at a club like Mount Pleasant that has serious aspirations and ambitious in their intent. "He should be able to strive, so I expect good things from him. Certainly, it's a loss for Harbour View. Now is the time that he is ready to take off. But we know in time we will reap the reward from his success. He will be on loan for a period, but we are looking at the soonest possible time to retake his services."
