Price: We are in it for the long haul

Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS - Marc Stamp Gleaner Writer

LONG-SERV­ING BOYS’ Town FC head coach An­drew Price is supremely con­fi­dent that his team will start win­ning soon, af­ter a slow start to the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) sea­son.

Boys’ Town are yet to put a point on the board af­ter three games in the RSPL 2016-17 sea­son. They had losses against Hum­ble Lion (2-0), Har­bour View (2-1), and reign­ing cham­pi­ons Mon­tego Bay United FC (2-1).

The Col­lie Smith Drive-based club is cur­rently in 11th po­si­tion in the 12-team league, just ahead of Water­house, who are also with­out a point.

Come Sun­day, the Red Brigade, as Boys’ Town are pop­u­larly known, will host last sea­son’s beaten fi­nal­ists Port­more United FC at Bar­bican Com­plex, start­ing at 3:30 p.m.

“Well, we are ac­tu­ally work­ing hard in train­ing to get it right. We are find­ing our foot­ing and look­ing for a pos­i­tive re­sult against Port­more in the next game,” Price said dur­ing the RSPL weekly press con­fer­ence at Red Stripe yes­ter­day.

“The sea­son is not a sprint; it’s a marathon. We are not wor­ried at this time as we have 30 more games to play in the pre­lim­i­nary stage,” the vet­eran coach rea­soned.

“We will get it right as the young­sters are get­ting the nu­ances of playing in the league,” Price con­fi­dently said.

“The wins will come, so we just have to be pa­tient. We are here for the long haul. We need the se­nior play­ers to con­tinue guid­ing the young play­ers. It is a work in progress, so we will con­tinue to work in or­der to get it right,’ the for­mer Boys’ Town and St Ge­orge’s Col­lege de­fender said.
