Coaches give mixed views on ISSA knockout football competitions this season

Report by RJRGLEANER Communications Group Sports Reporter Trishana McGowan

The Covid 19 coronavirus pandemic could force ISSA to amend the structure and time frame for this year's schoolboy football competitions if and when the season eventually gets underway. Despite the current uncertainty, several coaches have weighed in on a few possiblities if the competitions are given the go-ahead.
ISSA president Keith Wellington and his executive will meet with schoolboy football coaches virtually next Tuesday to discuss the way forward when the new school year gets underway in September. Last week, Ludlow Bernard, head coach last of season's Champions Cup winners Kingston College, said ISSA could consider forgoing knockout competitions to save time.

Fellow coaches Kemar Ricketts (BB Coke High), Merron Gordon (Garvey Maceo High) and Anthony Patrick (St Catherine High) share similar sentiments.

However, Davion Ferguson, Technical Director of Manning Cup champions Jamaica College says it would be a slap in the face of the schools which would qualify for the knockout competitions.
