Molynes United head coach Calvert Fitzgerald said that his team's advancing to next season's Kingston and

St Andrew Football Association (KSAFA) Super League is part of a three-year plan to qualify for the Red Stripe Premier League.

"The objective is to take the club to the Premier League," Fitzgerald told The Gleaner yesterday. "We had a meeting with the new chairman Eurado Cornwall, president Herman Cruickshank and myself, and we put the three year plan in place to take the club to the Premier League," he added.

Last year, the plan was derailed as Molynes were beaten 3-1 by Central Kingston in the Major League semi-final. That setback is now behind them and they are on the road to the nation's top league.

"We did not have a deep squad last year and the players were not used to the limelight. Now, we brought in some experienced players and they have done the job. We have a deeper squad," Fitzgerald explained.

 

LEADING THE CHARGE

 

"Mr Cornwall is leading the charge to the Premier League. He is the CEO of Metrodade (Protection Security) and spent time at Premier League clubs such as Rivoli United and Waterhouse. He is working hard on making the team better," he noted.

Molynes are in the Super League for the first time, but don't intend to stop there.

"We aim to win the final. I watched Mountain View against Pembroke Hall on Saturday night. They have a good team, with players who can possess the ball. We can't give them any chance to play the ball. We have to push as hard as possible on Friday night," Fitzgerald said ahead of the final.

Molynes reached the Magnum-sponsored Super League for the first time in the club's history when they thrashed Cooreville Gardens 4-0 in the semi-final last Friday night at Constant Spring Complex in St Andrew. Molynes' scorers were Ali Henry, Damion Thomas, Ramone Rose and Remilio Wilson.

They will oppose Mountain View in the final scheduled for Friday at Constant Spring, starting at 6:30 p.m.
