Conceding that the defending champion Christianburg /Wismar Secondary School (CWSS) are usually a much fitter and athletically gifted group of players, Head Coach of Waramadong Secondary School Louie Thomas speaking with Kaieteur Sport ahead of Sunday’s final showdown revealed that they are working on strategies to negate the opposition’s advantages.
Thomas, who was spearheading a practice session yesterday at the BV ground, told this newspaper that the team is not concerned with the previous results that saw them lose thrice to CWSS and was more focused on getting a positive result this time around.
“The good thing for us is that this team will not be affected by the previous results against them, we are a new unit and what the other teams did not achieve will not influence the way we approach the game and I can say that we are preparing to give a good account of ourselves and even come out with a positive result,” Thomas said.
During the recent session the players were seen intently focused on an attacking style of play which Thomas said was primarily bent on scoring early goals.
“We have to score early goals and get a lead it gives you an advantage and hopefully by doing that we could apply some pressure to the opposition.”
Thomas also felt that being aggressive both in attack and defence has to be a priority against a team that is fast and fit and confident in their ability.
He reckoned that their intent to be aggressive is the only way to beat the defending champions who play at a consistent pace throughout the game.
Thomas, who has been in charge of the team for sometime now, disclosed that he understands CWSS style of play which according to him is to deliver the long balls and have their strikers run on to them and create damage.
He assured fans that come Sunday they will see a brand of football that will certainly impress them, adding that they have a large contingent of supporters who will be coming to the game to rally around the team.
