Western Tigers Head Coach Calvin Allen in receiving the champion’s cheque credited the teams win to hard work and team spirit.
”I think that Western Tigers always have a talented bunch of players, more so young players and with the blend of the Phillip Rowley’s, Ryan Adolph and the other senior guys around is just about getting the group to work together and a bit harder. I think they were a bit relaxed and took things for granted but are now working hard.”
Allen, who took over the head technical position at the club last July, noted that they players work very hard each session, day in, day out.
”There are a few things that we have implemented that has probably changed the fortunes of the team and the administration of the club has been doing a great job also.”
Western Tigers Allen further informed now boasts a revamped and structured youth programme.
”So far I think we have done a marvelous job, we’ve got about 50 to 60 youngsters coming out to the ground on any given day and the female programme we’re focused a lot on. We have females from the age of five, six to about 15 year-old. So it’s a very young female group and we are hoping to mold them into a very strong and competitive group and hopefully a good group for Guyana.”
