WARRICAN EYES ANOTHER VPL TITLE

Custom Text

Irvin Warrican, head coach of La Soufrière Hikers, says his team is going all out to retain Vincy Premier League (VPL) title, the 4th edition of which bowls off tomorrow, Saturday, at the Arnos Vale Playing Field.

“Any team can win on a given day so although we would have won the tournament for two editions, we are going to expect a lot of competition where every team will be coming at us,” Warrican told THE VINCENTIAN, adding that his team has gone through fitness and net sessions as well as some practise matches ahead of the Tournament.

He is expecting his players to be fearless but smart in their approach to defence of their title, even as they take it “step by step.”

Warrican is happy with the composition of the Hikers’ teams.

He noted that as far as composition was concerned, that the teams looked balanced and he expects that “the reintroduction of the overseas players will serve the tournament in good stead, because these guys bring a lot of experience and professionalism to the game.”

The experienced coach is also excited by the inclusion of a ‘development player’. He described it as “a brilliant idea, to give some youngsters the chance to come on board and learn on the ground, …. to help them in their future development.”

La Soufrière Hikers team reads: Desron Maloney Captain, Dillon Douglas, Othneil Lewis, Rayan Williams, Jeremy Layne, Nigel Small, Ojay Mathews, Gidron Pope, Kavem Hodge, Jaheil Walters, Andrew Thomas, Kemron Strough, Cody Dabreo, Romario Bibby.

 The defending champs will face Salt Pond Breakers in their first fixture from 2:30 pm, following the opening match between Grenadines Divers and Botanical Garden Rangers from 12:00 pm.
