Wolmer’s Boys coach Vassell Reynolds said he is not concerned with anything else but eliminating big-named rivals and reigning ISSA-Flow Manning Cup champions Jamaica College today, when the schoolboy football powerhouses square off in their semi final at Sabina Park, at 4 p.m.Wolmer’s did, recently, eliminate today’s opponents from the Walker Cup quarter-finals, but none of that will matter today, Reynolds reasoned.”My approach from the beginning of the season is not to concern ourselves with the name of a team; the teams dont matter to me, only our next game. We always look to the next game,” warned Reynolds.”We dont know anybody named JC right now!” Reynolds quipped.”The Super Cup is glamorous and there is monetary reward and exposure there, because most people watch it. In terms of prestige, history, folklore, even though our aim is to be in all three finals, I would choose the Manning Cup.”We are confident of our ability as usual, we will be relying on our strength, and we will be focused and confident we will get the job done. We have momentum on our side, we are still unbeaten, we concede the least amount of goals,” Reynolds was quick to underline.He warned his charges that losing today would be unacceptable.”We don’t play against a name, we play against a team. It’s evident this is not the JC of last year, but from we met them in the STETHS CUP (pre-season), we knew they could be a formidable team,” Reynolds added.
