Mount Pleasant and Prior Academy will once again look to separate themselves and make the final, when they clash in the second-leg of the Magnum Eastern Confederation Super League semi-final at Drax Hall on Sunday starting at 3:00 pm.
Their first-leg semi-final last Sunday ended in a 1-1 tie with each holding a win over the other in the preliminary round of the competition. Priory Academy winning 1-0 and Mount Pleasant 4-1.
Both coaches, Paul ‘Tegat’ Davis of Mount Pleasant and Santanio Miller of Priory Academy, believes they have seen enough of their opponent this season, to make this deciding game counts.
Davis said, “the guys have been training properly this week. You will see a good game and we will come out victorious. It’s going to be an interesting second-leg semi-final. I know we are better than them, but there is a little hump between Volvo and this team.
“Volvo is a little team that have a psychological edge on teams in St Ann because they have been as a foundation team, but we have the players and the team that can move forward,” Davis said, in reference to Prior Academy’s previous name.
Miller said, “I think it will a very interesting, maybe high-scoring game as both teams are going for the win. We were Volvo before and it’s been a while since a St Ann team made it to the Premier League play-offs and the people want a team from the parish in the Premier League.”
The winner of the Magnum Eastern Confederation Super League, will play with the other three confederations winners for two spots in the Red Stripe Premier League.
