Anthony Patrick is still at Waterhouse despite being relieved as head coach of the struggling Premier League team. He remains at the club as assistant coach and is also in charge of the youth programme.

Patrick returned to Waterhouse as interim coach of the Red Stripe Premier League outfit following the resignation of Calvert Fitzgerald, who started the season in charge.

Poor results led to Fitzgerald stepping aside. Patrick took over. However, the team continued to struggle.

It was rumoured that Paul Young would have taken over some two months ago, but the deal was finalised last week and Young took charge on Friday.

When contacted yesterday, Patrick explained his role at the club.

"I was playing an interim role until Paul Young came in. Now he is at the club, so I am his assistant and also in charge of the youth programme," Patrick told The Gleaner.

Young, who also had a stint at Waterhouse in 2009, a 2-2 draw against Tivoli Gardens last Sunday at Waterhouse Stadium.

Although Waterhouse are at the foot of the table, on 14 points from 17 games, Patrick remains hopeful they will start winning soon.

"It will take self-discipline from players. He (Young) is stressing on that, as it is important in moving forward.

"We are trying to get the players to concentrate for the entire game. We have to be hopeful that the team can start winning. With five games remaining in the second round, the aim is to win those games then enter the third and final preliminary round in an improved position and take it from there.

"We still have a chance of making the last four for the championship play-off," Patrick said.

Waterhouse next play Cavalier SC at Stadium East this Sunday, starting at 5 p.m.
