Bernard’s KC aim for trophy success

first_img Home game against Ascott Confident his team has the right balance and is very hungry for silverware this season, Ludlow Bernard has warned his charges, who comfortably top Group C, that anything short of lifting the ISSA/FLOW Manning Cup, FLOW Super Cup or Walker Cup title will be unacceptable this year. Bernard, who is in his second season in charge of his Alma Mater, feels he has players who are mentally strong enough to deal with the conditions of competition this year. “The hunger is very much there in my team. They are probably seeing a light at the end of the tunnel and we are hoping that we can bend the corner and of course, get out into the light. The trophies are there for the taking, and we are one of the contenders,” he told The Gleaner. The many-time Manning Cup champions have gone over two decades without Manning Cup success, and Bernard wants his charges to believe that this year could be the year. Today, Bernard’s KC will line up against Ascott High in a home game at 3:30 p.m. looking to push their winning record to a perfect four. “I can’t really speak for the second round now. We will have to continue our progress, we are playing these games and hoping we can build a momentum with and try to provide as much exposure as possible for all of our players,” he said following his team’s 2-0 defeat of Papine High, last Friday. He wants to win every game and qualify for the Flow Super Cup and Walker Cup. “We are definitely eyeing the Super Cup, that is one of our priorities to try and top the zone and qualify for the Super Cup as well as the Walker Cup. “I guess anything short of that would not be acceptable, but I think we are on course, and we are going to try and maintain our form going forward,” stressed Bernard. The ‘Purples’ have dispatched St Mary’s College, Denham Town and Papine High so far, with Bernard expecting even more wins. “The team is a lot more balanced, and there is quite a bit of depth inside of the squad,” Bernard outlined, noting a number of national Under-17 players will help their title chase in future games.last_img read more
