Price: BT not yet out of the woods

first_img “With seven games to go, I told the players that we needed to win all games to stay up. We had a blip in the loss against Waterhouse. Now, we have to gain at least a point in the last game to be safe,” he explained. Price praised his senior players for their roles in the team’s revival. “The leadership of senior players – Michael Campbell, Daemion Benjamin, Wayne Ellis, Garfield Gillespie, Rafiek Thomas, Xavian Virgo, as well as young Shamar Nicholson who has netted 14 goals, has been very good,” the former Boys’ Town defender pointed out. With Arnett already safe and still in contention for the title, Price is not taking comfort from that. “We are going to Arnett to win the game on merit, show integrity. It is a Trench Town derby. It is a big game,” Price noted. Andrew Price, the coach of relegation threatened Boys’ Town, said that despite his team’s good recent form, they need at least a point against neighbouring Arnett Gardens in the Trench Town derby tomorrow at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex.. Having spent four months in last place in the Red Stripe Premier League, Boys’ Town are enjoying their best form of the season with five wins in their last six league games. That impressive form moved the Collie Smith Drive-based team into ninth position on 35 points ahead of Waterhouse (34), Maverley-Hughenden (32) and already relegated Jamalco who are at the bottom on 30 points. However, after being written off as likely candidates for relegation, Boys’ Town just need to avoid defeat in their last fixture in order to be safe for the nation’s elite league next season. “We are not out of the woods yet,” Price who has been coaching Boys’ Town for over ten years told The Gleaner.

Didier Drogba can still change games for Chelsea, says Cascarino

first_imgFormer Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino says bringing Didier Drogba back to the club isn’t a sentimental move, and the Ivorian can still win matches for the Blues – albeit from the bench.Speaking with Georgie Bingham and Micky Quinn on the Weekend Sports Breakfast, Cascarino explained the logic behind the move.“I don’t think Mourinho has just gone for sentiment and is bringing Didier back for no reason. I think it’s pretty clear that he’s not going to be first choice. What he wants is from the bench, someone he thinks can replace Costa because he wants to play a certain style. Players who come in need to do a job that’s required for the way the team has set up,”“You might only get 20 minutes, 30 minutes from him, but I think he’ll be very effective. Certain matches can be won in the last 20 minutes, and certain players can have a big impact and effect on the team. Jose looks at Didier and thinks that’s what his job will be.”Cascarino feels Drogba’s impact will also be felt further down the line in the coaching of other strikers at Stamford Bridge.“These are smart people. Roman Abramovich is a very smart man and Jose has proven that he’s a smart coach. Forget the emotion, if they didn’t think that Didier could come back and do a job for the team, and further down the line in coaching and nurturing the strikers, he wouldn’t be there.”“Clubs don’t just do this for a favour because you’ve been a legend. If they love you that much but think you can’t do the job then you’d be up in the boxes, in the stands on a Saturday afternoon. That’s how football clubs are, but they feel there’s much more from Didier in the playing sense and also in the players he could improve.”last_img read more
