Long-time head coach of the St Elizabeth Technical (STETHS) track and field programme Reynaldo Walcott, is the being heavily tipped to take over the reigns at the Wolmer's Boys school following the recent coaching shuffle at the Heroes Circle - based institution.

News broke last week that the entire Wolmer's coaching staff led by Christopher Harley, who took over from David Riley in 2012 was shown the door following disappointment with the team's showing at the recent ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls Athletics Championships.

Wolmer's Boys finished ninth with 50 points.

Walcott is the man behind STETHS' re-emergence as a solid athletics programme over the past few season, leading the team to top 10 finishes in the girls' section and top five finishes among the boys over past few years.

He is also a member of the MVP Track Club, which is of course headed by veteran coach Stephen Francis, a past student and influential voice on the Wolmer's athletics programme.
