Reno to recall Findlayson
Robert Bailey, Gleaner Writer
National representative Nicholy Findlayson is set to make his much-anticipated return to promoted Digicel Premier League outfit Reno for the upcoming season.
Wendell Downswell, head coach of Reno, told The Gleaner in an interview yesterday that Findlayson has completed his one-year loan stint with Waterhouse and they are now currently discussing the personal terms of his contract with him.
"The hierarchy of our club is currently in negotiation with the player and I am pretty confident that everything will be sorted out very soon," said Downswell, the former national football coach and technical director.
"He was an integral part of the Waterhouse team when he was on loan there last season, but he is our player and we are glad to have him back with us," Downswell said.
Downswell added that the 25-year-old Findlayson, who has represented Jamaica at all levels, would help to add a lot of depth and knowledge to his team.
"He brings a wealth of experience, tactical understanding and leadership to our team because the last time he played in the Premier League for us, he scored 10 goals," said Downswell.
He added: "Findlayson is also a very good dead-ball specialist and with his presence on the field, it would help inject a high level of confidence among the other players."
The Westmoreland-based Reno, winners of the Western Confederation Super League, secured their return to the Premier League after topping the Jamaica Football Federation Confederation play-offs. They were demoted from the competition last year.
Downswell noted that his club is also currently in negotiation with a number of players, who have said that they would like to join his team.
"We have number of quality players, who made contact with us, but nothing has been finalised yet with any of them," he said.
