Lloyd still holding on to promise

When Arnett Gardens’ midfielder Renae Lloyd left the Trench Town club before the start of the 2018/2019 Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) season for Clarendon club, Humble Lion, his expectation was that he was going there to challenge for the title.

Things have gone far from planned, but the midfielder has not given up hope of qualifying for the top six, and if that fails this season he has vowed to return next season and try to fullfil the promise of winning the title for their passionate fans.

“All is not going as we expected when we decided to move and come here. I kind of expected that it might take a little time with new players coming in and would need some time to gel. But, hopefully, we can still make the top six. We can do better as a team,” he said.

“So we didn’t fulfill our promise and we made a promise that we wanted to come and capture the title for Humble Lion this season. Clarendon people really deserves it and so definitely I will be here next season better and stronger.”

Lloyd believes for his side to make it to the play-offs, they must start putting away the chances they are creating. “Failing to put away our chances has plagued us all season. I can tell you of a number of games that we got numerous chances to score goals, even myself but sometimes you have to lift your hat to the ‘keeper’. But it’s going to be tough with six games left. We can get a maximum of18 points but we have to honour the fixtures, play to the best of our abilities and take it from there,” he reasoned.
