STETHS, coach Omar 'Rambo' Wedderburn

"As you can see, the FLOW Super Cup brings a lot of excitement, ding-dong battles between town and country schools initially in the first round. It (FLOW Cup) gives more schools opportunities to express themselves, with the ultimate goal of being champions.

"It is the second time for us in the FLOW Cup semi-finals, and we are confident we will in get past Wolmer's, but we are not underrating the opponents."

Clarendon College, manager Richard Palmer

"The Super Cup is certainly the champions league of schoolboy football. I love it. It is about the prestige and excitement it brings.

"We have been performing well in all schoolboy competitions this year. We are in the semi-finals against Cornwall, so our chances are as good as any other team in the last four. We respect all opponents but have confidence in our ability as a team to perform on the day."

Wolmer's coach Vassell Reynolds

"It is a good competition that all teams want to win.

"We are looking forward to the game, and we know that the STETHS team is a very good one in terms of structure and organisation and ability.

"They will be pumped up by the fact that the daCosta Cup teams are doing very well, and we are the only Manning Cup team in the Super Cup. It is a tough encounter, but we will be prepared for it."

Cornwall College's coach Dr Dean Weatherly

"The FLOW Super Cup has done something for the schools in terms of the prize money and prestige. However, the organisers must consider to play it before or after the daCosta and Manning Cup. It is taxing on the players to be playing regularly. However, it is a good competition.

"The game between Cornwall and Clarendon is a battle between two good teams. It will come down to the team that wants it more on the day. When dealing with youth, it's about mental preparation for each game. I think we are ready as a team and willing to give it our all. We are the underdogs, so under little pressure."
