Home Opener !
St. Lawrence will play their home-opener against the CBS representatives this coming week-end. St. Lawrence will be led by the return of Richard Kelly, Rudy Norman , Jon Grant and John Douglas . The Laurentians had earlier opened the 2012 season, with a visit to the Avalon Peninsula, recording a 2-1 loss to Feildians and a 1-1 tie to Mount Pearl. Although, I feel the Laurentians will be a much stronger squad this season but it may take some time for the team to gel. The team is currently working on a new system of play that may take some time before the teams chemistry is at a comfortable level.
However, the CBS representatives - CB Auto Strikers FC team have the makings of being the, "Most Improved Team" this season. Coach, Gary Forsyt has done a superb job with this young team in just three short season. I like his technical approach and the emphasis he has placed on physical fitness. His assistant, Damien Masteron has been a very good compliment since signing on with the FC Team . On the field CBS are led by their all-star keeper, Chris Hayes. While Ryan Sheppard, Trevory Ivany and Allan Dalton are solid players. Up front Chris White and Ayuba Kamara provide adequate offense. Could be an interesting week-end.
