Con­fi­dent school coaches

STETHS, coach Omar ‘Rambo’ Wed­der­burn

“As you can see, the FLOW Su­per Cup brings a lot of ex­cite­ment, ding-dong bat­tles be­tween town and coun­try schools ini­tially in the first round. It (FLOW Cup) gives more schools op­por­tu­ni­ties to ex­press them­selves, with the ul­ti­mate goal of be­ing cham­pi­ons.

“It is the sec­ond time for us in the FLOW Cup semi-fi­nals, and we are con­fi­dent we will in get past Wolmer’s, but we are not un­der­rat­ing the op­po­nents.”

Claren­don Col­lege, man­ager Richard Palmer

“The Su­per Cup is cer­tainly the cham­pi­ons league of school­boy foot­ball. I love it. It is about the pres­tige and ex­cite­ment it brings.

“We have been per­form­ing well in all school­boy com­pe­ti­tions this year. We are in the semi-fi­nals against Corn­wall, so our chances are as good as any other team in the last four. We re­spect all op­po­nents but have con­fi­dence in our abil­ity as a team to per­form on the day.”

Wolmer’s coach Vas­sell Reynolds

“It is a good com­pe­ti­tion that all teams want to win.

“We are look­ing for­ward to the game, and we know that the STETHS team is a very good one in terms of struc­ture and or­gan­i­sa­tion and abil­ity.

“They will be pumped up by the fact that the daCosta Cup teams are do­ing very well, and we are the only Man­ning Cup team in the Su­per Cup. It is a tough en­counter, but we will be pre­pared for it.”

Corn­wall Col­lege’s coach Dr Dean Weatherly

“The FLOW Su­per Cup has done some­thing for the schools in terms of the prize money and pres­tige. How­ever, the or­gan­is­ers must con­sider to play it be­fore or af­ter the daCosta and Man­ning Cup. It is taxing on the play­ers to be play­ing reg­u­larly. How­ever, it is a good com­pe­ti­tion.

“The game be­tween Corn­wall and Claren­don is a bat­tle be­tween two good teams. It will come down to the team that wants it more on the day. When deal­ing with youth, it’s about men­tal prepa­ra­tion for each game. I think we are ready as a team and will­ing to give it our all. We are the un­der­dogs, so un­der lit­tle pres­sure.”
