Beaten last year in a hard fought final to eventual champion St. Pius, West Ruimveldt Head Coach Sherwin Jaisingh is
vowing to go one step better this time in the Courts Pee Wee Schools Football Competition which commences on Saturday, at the Thirst Park ground.
Jaisingh, who has been a constant face on most sporting activities for the school, speaking with Kaieteur Sport via telephone yesterday, met the question of what the fans should expect from his charges this year with a bout of laughter, before predicting a win in this year’s competition.
“We reached the final last year, but we are looking to go all the way this year,” a confident sounding Jaisingh told this newspaper.
Quizzed on the makeup of the team, Jaisingh, who revealed that they had just concluded a training session, informed that he has about four players returning from last year and this could act as an advantage to his team’s chances of lifting the trophy this year.
Another advantage Jaisingh disclosed that could work in his favour is the fact that even though the bulk of the players will be competing in the tournament for the first time, most of them are already attached to clubs.
“My players already have a fair amount of knowledge of the game so my work has been made much easier it is just about getting the right chemistry and having them work as a team,” he stated.
Twelve games are slated for the day and West Ruimveldt start off with a clash against Redeemer at 10:00 hrs on Pitch #1, while Comenius takes on Green Acres on Pitch #2.
St. Pius kick off their pursuit for top honours when they face J.E Burnham.
Starting from 10:45 hrs, St. Stephen’s engages St. Gabriel’s, while Tucville and Thomas More square off at the same time.
At 11:30 hrs, F.E Pollard clashes with St. Angela’s and at 12:15 hrs, Success Academy go up against Enterprise and East La Penitence and Ketley do battle.
St. Margaret’s and Smith’s Memorial collides at 13:00 hrs and this game will be played simultaneously with the one between South Ruimveldt and St. Ambrose.
In the final double header of the day, Marian Academy collides with Stella Maris and North Georgetown tackles Winfer Gardens.
Furniture and Alliances giant Courts have pledged in excess of $2.8 million in sponsorship towards the tournament, while Petra Organisation will once again co-ordinate the tournament which is also being sponsored by Banks DIH Ltd.
The Ministry of Education is also working in collaboration with the Petra Organisation to ensure that the event is a success.
