Constant Spring seek more improvements in Super League

Rejuvenated Constant Spring FC will aim to continue adding to their points tally when they tackle Real Mona FC in the feature match of the Magnum KSAFA Super League cross zone double-header at Constant Spring Complex on Saturday, beginning at 8:30 p.m.

The first match, set to kick off at 6:30 p.m., is a traditional game between former giants of local football, Santos and Boys’ Town, both of which are in Zone B.

The other fixture is a Zone A clash between teams that displayed contrasting form in their opening games. Constant Spring lost their four matches and were rooted to the bottom, while Real Mona had won twice in that many games to sit in the top three.

In their last two matches, however, Constant Spring have shown signs that they are turning the corner, by winning once and drawing the other to make four points and move above Maxfield Park in the tables. Real Mona, on the other hand, have remained steady with one win that pushed their tally to 10 points and third place.

Gregory Walters, coach of Constant Spring FC, says the win has impacted his team positively and he expects them to continue along that path.

“The first win that we’ve got for the season for the Super League, it has motivated my players really well because I see them putting more effort into the training, they’re listening more and right now I think they’re stepping up their game and they are executing the game plans more than how they were doing it in the first round,” expressed Walters.

“They’re following the instructions, they’re playing more as a unit, they’re playing more defensive and they’re going in attacking mode as one unit,” he added of differences in their play.

Continuing, Walters said: “I think they’ve improved in a lot of different stages in the football game … so really and truly I give them a plus for the improvements that I’ve seen so far.

“Right now I’m pleased about it, but I think we should have been doing better from the first round. I see that they’re getting the understanding. They’re youngsters, so I knew that it would have taken a little time still,” he added.

His team drew 1-1 with Molynes United last weekend when Javier Wilmot scored. Wilmot also scored in their only win, a 2-0 result over Maxfield Park FC, and he will shoulder their hopes for more goals, along with Ryan Palmer.

Real Mona  have been more consistent and have a number of players who have been getting their goals, including Kemoy Phillips, whose lone goal earned them a 1-0 win over Maxfield FC.
