Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS - Nod­ley Wright Gleaner Writer

AF­TER MAK­ING the bot­tom of the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) their own for most of the sea­son, Dun­be­holden FC are get­ting a taste of life off it, and they are lov­ing it.

So good is the feel­ing above the league base­ment that the St Cather­ine-based team is look­ing to go higher. The club, nestled in the Royal Lakes com­mu­nity of St Cather­ine, owe their new po­si­tion to a hand­some 3-0 mid­week win over Reno FC. This re­sult, ac­cord­ing to club pres­i­dent Dono­van Wit­ter, has given them the boost they need ahead of to­day’s tough home game against for­mer cham­pi­ons Tivoli


“It is a good feel­ing to be not at the ex­treme bot­tom, and it gives us some hope to pass­ing the next team that is above us,” the op­ti­mistic Wit­ter told The Sun­day Gleaner yes­ter­day.

“Based on the whole mo­men­tum from Wed­nes­day’s game and the in­jec­tion of some play­ers, two of whom played on Wed­nes­day, we are ex­pected to add an­other three points and move fur­ther up the ta­ble. That is our ob­jec­tive, and I think the play­ers are re­al­is­ing how se­ri­ous we are about this,” Wit­ter added.

Among the play­ers brought in by Dun­be­holden FC are Nico Williams and Mario Phillips, who spent some time in Canada. They are
