The coaches say ...
- Miguel Coley, JC - 'It will be tough'
"It will be a tough game between the two teams that are unbeaten in the Manning Cup this year. Charlie Smith are a good team, strong in defence and can hit you on the counter," Miguel Coley told The Gleaner.
"Once we execute properly, we will win the game. We will most definitely be coming all out. It is a final and we want to put our best foot forward because, at the end of the day, we want to win the Manning Cup," he said.
"Some of my players are from Trench Town and the two teams have been rivals for a long time and so it is going to be a tremendous game for us."
- Jerome Waite, Charlie Smith - 'We are confident'
"I think it will be a good matchup against JC. They (JC) have quality and depth, but I have confidence in my team," Waite said.
"Both teams have conceded only four goals apiece in the Manning Cup, so the team that breaks down the other's defence will be the winners," Waite, who has been coaching at Charlie Smith since 1987, pointed out.
"We fell short in the Walker Cup and Super Cup and that gave us time to focus on the Manning Cup. Now that we are in the final, the aim is definitely to win for the first time since 1995," he shared.
