Ludlow Bernard, head coach of Wolmer's Boys, is very confident that his team can win the Manning Cup title in this year's Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA)/Gatorade/Digicel Manning Cup schoolboy football competition that kicks off on Saturday.
"I am very confident that in the group that we have are players that can take us to the title," Bernard told The Gleaner in an interview.
Wolmer's Boys have been one of the top performers in the competition, making it to the semi-finals on many occasions and having 10 liens on the title.
It has been 17 years since they last won the title, but after making it to the semi-finals last year, the coach hopes they will give a better performance this time.
"I think our chances are as good as any other team," he stated. "We want to improve on what we did last year."
Returning to the team this year is former national Under-17 players Jason Wright, Kemo Wallace, Amal Knight and Demar Rose.
"The preparation has been going well, and the players are really serious about it," said Bernard.
"They just have to try to maintain their focus and perform at all times right throughout the course of it," added Bernard.
