[SPORTS]:::Granville Hunt Arnett Scalp

No. 67 Wednesday, March 17, 2010
By Craig Oates
Granville RC. will this afternoon be taking dead aim at Premier League outfit Arnett Gardens in the Flow Knockout football competition. The Tracy Reid coached team continued its good run of form coming from one goal down to beat York FC 3-2 at the York Sports Complex, St. Thomas on Wednesday, March 3.

    The team showed good composure despite playing away and stuck to the task, led by the inform Garth Johnson who got a brace. The team held on for a hard fought win
    Johnson, Granville's ace striker and the Flow Champions Cup joint leading goal scorer, with three goals will be the man who stands between victory
and defeat. His penetrative dribbling skills have left many a defender mesmerized in the league and if he can replicate such form, the Junglists could be in a spot of bother. Johnson stated that he is confident that the team has the quality and is prepared to give their best in going all the way.
    "A great part of the team's focus for the rest of the 2009/2010 season is to continue giving a good account of themselves and go all the way in the Flow Champions Cup; while at the same time continue moving up the table and consolidate the team's placing in the Western Confederation Super League; thereby creating a solid foundation for the 2010/2011 season and the teams bid to qualify for the National Premier League," Loxley Reid, coach said.
    Arnett Gardens on the other hand will be no easy
push-over. Despite finding themselves in the relegation zone the team has enough quality to win against any opponent and with a blend of veterans including Kevin Wilson, Cornel Chin-Sue and former/player coach and national representative Fabian Davis. the West Kingston based team should not be taken lightly.
    Granville should get additional firepower from Odane Snow; Davian Thelwell, Dale Gillard and Michael Thompson. With the supporters expecting to turn out in droves, Granville could pull the Rabbit out of the hat and dispatch their more heralded opponents with disdain.
    "The support of the Granville community as well as the persons or organizations that have contributed to the team's preparations and participation in the Western Confederation Super League as well as the Flow Champions Cup Knockout competition has been appreciated and has borne positive fruit , as Granville has the en­viable achievement of being the only non-premier league team/parish champion left among the eight teams in the quarterfinal stage of the com­petition.
    Club VP, Ricrado Rho­den is urging support ahead of Wednesday's clash.
    "Come be a part of history in the making, as Granville RC. continue to use the game of foot­ball to bridge gaps, break down divides, foster unity and strengthen the friendships and bonds for the betterment of the citizens of Granville and its environs," said 2nd VP of the Club Ricardo Rho­den.
    Officials for the game will be Dwight Royal, referee, Kedlee Powell, Preston Davis (assistant referee) and Allie Mckenzie (fourth official).
