Manager of the Red Steel, Colin Borde, says that
his team is packed with professionals who know
where they went wrong and what they need to do,
which in his words: "Simply play better cricket."
The Red Steel has so far lost their two matches
on the road against Guyana Amazon Warriors and
Barbados Tridents. They next play Jamaica Tallawahs
tomorrow at the Queen s Park Oval. This will be fol-
lowed by a clash against the Guyana Amazon Warriors
on Friday and then on Sunday against the Antigua
Billhawks, also at the Oval.
The next three home games are essentially impor-
tant for the Red Steel and they need to win all to
stand a good chance of making the semifinals. Borde,
who has been hard at work getting conditions perfect
for his men, said: "Simply put, these guys need to
play better cricket. They are professionals and they
know where they went wrong and what is required
to correct it. They are also fully aware of the situation
they find themselves in at the moment and they
need to try and put things right in order for this
team to get back on track."
The Red Steel had a training session at the Oval
last evening and is expected to have another this
evening. The Jamaicans arrived in the country at
midday yesterday and will have first use of the Oval
facility today to train.
Borde continued: "All these players signed up for
this tournament and they knew that the pressure
would be immense, they need to show up and make
a telling effect. We will continue to improve and I
want the public to know that this team will turn it
He added: "We have five matches to go and it is
ample time to put the campaign right and to get into
the playoffs. One thing I can say is that all the players
are focussed and determined to get success and they
are very well aware of the fans and what would make
them happy and they are going to do just that."
Borde: Red Steel simply
needs to play better cricket
Newly elected president of the Tennis Association
of T&T Kendall Cuffy says that one of his major
goals while in charge will be to increase the pop-
ularity of the sport towards a level on par with
football, cricket and athletics.
Cuffy, a former national junior player, replaced
Jermille Danclair as the organisation s head during
its Annual General Meeting last month and believes
the sport still has a "long way to go" in T&T. Speaking
during the National Open Tennis Championships in
St Clair over the weekend, he said he was planning
to set up tennis programmes in the country s sec-
ondary schools to ensure that youngsters would
sustain their interest in the game as they grew older.
"We have a good system in place right now in the
primary schools and what is happening is that they
loose interest after that because they don t have a pro-
gramme which extends into the secondary schools,"
he said. "Our goal really is to ensure that when we
catch them young, that we re able to extend that interest
right up to college level and at that point in time they
can make the decision as to if they want to take uni-
versity tennis or turn pro if they get that good."
Cuffy said that hosting more international tour-
naments would also serve to develop the sport, though
the association would first need to secure enough
backing from the Ministry of Sports.
He said: "We are fortunate to be one of the nine
sporting organisations to receive funding from the
Government but at the same time we would like to
get some more funding. The current budget that we
get is not really enough to sustain us. Bringing more
international tournaments here is one of the things
we would like to do, especially at the senior level so
our Davis Cup Players could get some exposure. It s
difficult for us to send them out to other countries
because of the cost, but at the same time, we want
to get some additional funds to see if we could fund
a national elite programme where our senior players
are getting support."
