Georgetown, Guyana - Coach of the Guyana team Esaun Crandon expressed confidence that his team can go all the way in the Regional NAGICO Super50 tournament which commences on January 30 in Trinidad and Tobago.
Speaking with Kaieteur Sport yesterday morning at Windjammer hotel before their departure, Crandon said that winning the tournament is not going to be as easy task. “There are some very good teams so we expect a high level of competition. Our guys have to take one game at a time and play to the best of their ability and as long as they can do that we will be very hard to beat”, he said.
Crandon stated that their first objective is to get to the semis and take it from there. He informed that the team is a well balanced one. “It is a mixture of youth and experience; I think the selectors did a fine job”, he added.
The coach indicated that he is satisfied with the team’s preparation. “The players looked good; they worked really hard during the training sessions and their fitness level improved tremendously”, he explained.
When quizzed as to what conditions he expects in the Twin Island Republic, Crandon said he feels that the ball will move around a lot in the nights. He said most players are aware of this and getting acclimatized to the conditions as soon as possible will be an important factor.
