Western Bureau:

After a trophyless season in 2016, St Elizabeth Technical (STETHS) head coach Omar 'Rambo' Wedderburn says he is focused on making the finals and winning every schoolboy football trophy up for grabs this season.

"We really look forward to winning a trophy or few ... we don't want to go a second year with nothing to show," Wedderburn told The Gleaner.

Highlighting his school's motto, 'Work and Integrity, Wedderburn laments what he described as a lack of enough industry in the team's approach last season, while underlining that his squad is determined to work harder towards achieving the objective this year.

"We're not coming home empty-handed this year," Wedderburn said confidently.


Good preseason


Coach Wedderburn expressed that pre-season preparations have been great despite mixed results and highlighted that he is more focused on building on the psychological aspect of his players' game where they become more motivated to handle any situation.

"This year's mixed result is really testing the players' character from early," Wedderburn noted.

"I haven't changed anything. All I know: Goals win games ... pattern of football and possession don't really count in my book. The best thing about any football game is the winning team. A one goal would do if the opponent don't score," he said.

"Our goal is to win any final that we reach; play to reach the finals and win it, so we are not planning how many titles we are going to win, if you don't reach the final, you cannot win."
