CC show them your best! – Weatherly

Jamaica Gleaner - - SATURDAY - Shayne Fair­man Gleaner Writer

THERE HAVE been many great per­for­mances in what has been a per­fect sea­son for western Ja­maica’s ISSA-FLOW Su­per Cup flag-bear­ers Corn­wall Col­lege.

Yet, they ar­rive in Kingston ahead of to­day’s fi­nal at Sabina Park, look­ing to do even bet­ter with Wolmer’s stand­ing be­tween them and their place in his­tory as the daCosta Cup’s first Su­per Cup win­ner.

Corn­wall played their first game at Sabina Park last week - a 4-2 win over of a strong Claren­don Col­lege team in the semi-fi­nals.

It was the lat­est tick in a sea­son that has seen the self-pro­claimed ‘Orig­i­nal CC’ out­fit go un­beaten in 19 games in all com­pe­ti­tions in­clud­ing 16 wins in 16 DCup games.

Yet, coach Dean Weatherly be­lieves there’s a lot more to come from his boys.

“Peaked? No, no, no we have not peaked. We have ways to go still; we are prob­a­bly at about 80 per cent right now, which is hap­pen­ing for us at a good time in the sea­son,” he said.

Weatherly, while be­ing re­spect­ful of a tac­ti­cal Wolmer’s team, says they will play with­out fear and work for the win.

“We are hop­ing that the boys turn out and pro­duce their best game. I guess if we turn out and play our A game it will be suc­cess­ful,” he told The Gleaner prior to his team’s ar­rival here in Kingston, last evening.

“We didn’t over­stretch against Claren­don, we have more in the tank for sure, ev­ery­body (play­ers) is good and we will have a full strength team to­mor­row (to­day),” added Weatherly.

“We are just hop­ing to play some good foot­ball and see if we can stick to Wolmer’s be­cause it’s a hard run­ning team, and we have to match up with them,” he stressed.

“Our play­ers have to ex­press them­selves within lim­its and as long as they are play­ing within what is the re­quired sys­tem, then in­di­vid­u­ally, we just have to make them feel com­fort­able in what they are do­ing,” he as­sured.

Like his coun­ter­part on the Wolmer’s bench, he feels play­ing at Sabina Park will not give ei­ther team an ad­van­tage.

“As long as you are on top the fans will go any­where, it doesn’t mat­ter where the game is be­ing played. Yes, of­course we can win, we are go­ing for that but you know how foot­ball is, and teenagers,” added Weatherly.
