CC show them your best! – Weatherly
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.
