Western Bureau:

Rusea's High School Principal Linvern Wright believes that building a long term programme around Coach Vassel Reynolds is the key to a return to daCosta Cup supremacy for the institution.

Rusea's is one of the most successful teams in the competition with 10 titles, however, they have not lifted the title since 2011.

The institution was the undisputed king of the 1980s when they dominated with five titles between 1984 and 1990 and Wright wants to bring back the glory days a challenge he feels Reynolds is capable of matching.

"My aim is to have a good programme, and what I see is a coach that believes in moulding the players, doing the things right from day one, and eventually, titles will come," said Wright who is also the chairman of the daCosta Cup competition.

Meanwhile, Reynolds acknowledged the importance of returning the daCosta Cup to Rusea's and underlined that his aim is to ensure that the team remains competitive each season.

"Year after year, we must always be a force to reckoned with as to if that grants us trophies so be it but we are focused on being challenging," said Reynolds.




When asked if he will display the same philosophy that brought him success at Wolmer's Boys last year, Reynolds who is the reigning winning coach of the Flow Super Cup, shared that he wants to display that same brand and philosophy of football with his new team.

"Most definitely, especially on understanding the game form a tactical point of view and what we need to do to win games," Reynolds said. "I'm very positive that once we can get that done, we will get them to perform at their utmost best, and from there, the sky is the limit for now and years to come."

When quizzed on goals for the season Coach Reynolds said that though his team is prepared to take on the new season it is going to take it game by game and round by round and then assess its general possibilities going forward.

"I think we have as good a chance as any to challenge for any trophy that is available, but we just want to focus on getting through the preliminary rounds," Reynolds said.
