Former champions Wolmer’s Boys could face a tricky contest when they play away to Spanish Town High in today’s feature match of the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports

Association (ISSA)/Pepsi/ Digicel Manning Cup urban area senior schoolboy football competition, at Spanish Town Prison Oval, starting at 3:30 p.m.

The Ludlow Bernard-coached Wolmer’s, who are unbeaten in the competition so far, are oozing with confidence ahead of today’s encounter, following their 8-0 victory over Edith Dalton James in their opening match on Monday.

Last win

The Heroes Circle-based school, who last won the competition in 1994, will once again look to their inspirational striker Jason Wright, who scored a hat-rick in their opening win.

“We are very confident, but we just have to go out there and play organised football, both offensively and defensively, and once we do this, I believe we will get the victory,” said Bernard.

“However, this is a new game, different team and different approach, because this is an away game,” Bernard said.

He added: “I think our opponents should be all fired-up because they are in their comfort zone, and so I think it is going to be a very tricky game. But I am still very optimistic that we can get all three points.”

Wright is expected to receive major support from captain Omar Holness, Janime Dennis and Desmond Campbell.

Meanwhile, the Anthony Thompson-coached Spanish Town also won their opening match, as they blanked Donald Quarrie 3-0 on Monday.

Thompson said his players are also ready and raring to go for full points.

“We are in a very confident mood … we are in a tough zone and we have to play our best football in order stay up there with the leaders,” said Thompson.

“It is going to be a tough game because Wolmer’s always have a good team, but we are going out there in a winning mood and to ensure that we get all three points,” he said.

Thompson added: “We have a well-rounded team and I believe that as the season goes on I know that they will get better and better, because I know that we can win this group.”

Spanish Town will rest their hopes in the hands of leading players Kenroy Powell, Okama Thompson, Vinroy Haynes and Owen Walters.
