George Town SC and Bodden Town FC aim to recapture the goal scoring form in the President’s Cup Semifinals, after finding out their opponents on Wednesday.
George Town drew Elite Sports Club and ever improving Sunset meets Bodden Town. Both first leg matches will take place at the Annex on Sunday 9 February, 2014.
At the semifinal draw George Town Captain Ian Lindo expressed his desire to return to action with the same form his side ended 2013.
In the opening round a double strike from Miguel Simms helped Lee Ramoon’s men kick Scholars International out of the competition.
Lindo said, “When we return to action we have to get back the focus we had before the break. At George Town we are a fun club and we have mixed that with a much more focused mentality. This combination has led to more success on the pitch which we hope to recapture against Elite.
Elite Sports Club’s Dwayne Wright expects a stern challenge from the George Town unit.
“We are comfortable with the draw against George Town. Every team brings a challenge but we are ready,” said Wright, the reigning Most Valuable Player of local football.
In the evening’s opening fixture Bodden Town lines up against Sunset FC.
Elbert Mclean’s Bodden Town side was propelled by double strikes from Theron Wood and Ricoh Brown in a 6-0 drubbing of Academy Sports Club.
Manager Kennedy Kelly said good preparation is key to his team’s chances of winning.
“We have to prepare the best we can. Sunset is a good team holding their own in the Premier Division and the first time we met this season they held us to a draw. We intend to let our playing do the talking.”
Sunset FC Defender John Bruton and General Secretary Kevin Poole represented the club at the draw.
Bruton said, “Bodden Town is a strong opponent and we expect a difficult game. One our day we can match any team and progress to the final. Before the season’s break we were on a bit of a run which we hope to continue. It starts with the belief that we can do it.”
“Sunset has done well since our promotion to the Premier League. We look forward to the challenge of facing Bodden Town, Poole said.”
