The head coach of Old Edwardians Football club Junior Konneh has disclosed to Awoko sports that they are going to surprise football fans in this year’s premier league competition that is going to start in a few days time.
He said that some football fans have ruled them out in this particular league as they have lost about four or more players who have gone to different clubs in the country.
He said that last year it was the same thing that happened to the team but we were able to maintain our position in the premier league as many people were thinking that as we have lost our best players, the team would be relegated but that never happened.
He stated that he and his assistant were able to keep the team even though they were not able to honor some of the fixtures in the provinces because of some financial problems affecting the team then.
Coach Konneh also mentioned that though the team was not so strong compared to some of the big teams but they were able to defeat them in the league.
Coach Konneh said that Old Edwardians team can never lack players as players are going out they are training young players to take over from them that is the reason why football fans always admire their team.
He also disclosed that Old Edwardians team would not be easy to be relegated as they have the base which is full of young players.
He said that they are playing this year’s league with a very young crop of players who have a lot of talent and who are going to create serious problems for some of the teams in the competition.
He also maintained that his boys are focused and determined for the league but appealed to fellow Edwardians to come on board to support the team this time around.
