Recently crowned National Super
League champion club Guaya United
and its former head coach Ronald
La Forest have parted ways.
The two parties, following a meet-
ing mid-way through February, near
to the end of the Super League sea-
son, agreed to separate because of
"major differences in vision and mis-
sion", stemming from an incident
several weeks prior.
Quoted in a media release yester-
day, Guaya United thanked La Forest
and former assistant coach Calvin
Hughes for their efforts during the
campaigns of both the Eastern Coun-
ties Football Union championship
and the National Super League. "Mr
La Forest s experience served the
community and our club in an excel-
The statement said that La Forest
and Hughes chose to attend an invi-
tational football tournament in the
United States, during a crucial period
for the club, which was preparing for
the second round of Super League
matches, including fixtures against
then title contenders Club Sando and
Malabar FC. The club said because
of this, it held serious doubts about
La Forest s commitment to Guaya.
"Ron s failure during the period
January 11-February 3, 2014, to
respond positively and timely for an
urgent meeting with the Guaya exec-
utive on matters relating to his com-
mitment, dedication and training
techniques for our programme,
required of the executive to take
immediate action for the continued
success of Guaya United."
The club said neither La Forrest
or Hughes coached Guaya during
the three-week period. "In these
circumstances, both parties met on
February 15, 2014, and it was agreed
that it would be mutually beneficial
for separation to take place. We wish
him every success in his future
The last six matches were headed
by Vernon Haynes and Joseph
Weekes as interim coach and assis-
tant coach, respectively. They record-
ed a five-one win-loss ratio, which
led the team to the title. Guaya con-
gratulated Haynes and Weekes for
Guaya also thanked the national
community and its home fans who
have shared in the club s joy at win-
ning the National Super League in
its inaugural year of participation.
"The sentiments expressed by the
wider population have convinced us
that communities provide the best
foundation for the complete revival
of National football. This is a core
belief of Guaya United FC.
KINGSTON --- Jamaican all-rounder Andre
Russell says his players will have to bury
the disappointment of the Super50 tourna-
ment and turn their attention to the upcom-
ing Regional Four-day competition
The Jamaicans lost to hosts T&T by seven
wickets after a poor batting display saw them
dismissed for a record low 49 in the semi-
"Honestly. I don t know what happened
in the Super50 semifinal. I m lost for
words...first I don t really know how to explain
a cricket game," he said.
"We made a plan, but we just never had
the score on the board."
Jamaica, winners of five straight four-day
trophies until relinquishing the title to Bar-
bados last year, meet Guyana at Sabina Park
in the tournament opener on Friday.
Russell, selected in the 13-member squad
for the encounter, said the focus is now on
reclaiming the four-day crown.
"We are surprised (at how we lost in the
Super50) and as professionals you don t want
to accept that," said Russell.
"It hurt, but at the same time you have to
try get it off your mind as soon as possible.
The four-day is coming up and we want to
win that again."
Russell, one of the stars of last year s inau-
gural Caribbean Premier League T20 tour-
nament, said he made himself available for
the longer format so that he can get more
time to work on both his batting and bowl-
"That kind of cricket will give me the
chance to spend time at the crease and work
on my batting. Playing the longer version
will help me to improve my cricket," said
Russell, a regular member of the West Indies
Twenty20 (T20) team.
"Batting in a four-day game I won t be
thinking about getting like 40 runs in 15 balls,
I can actually build an innings. And in terms
of bowling, I can relax some more and hit
my areas." CMC
La Forest parts ways with Guaya United
to rally Jamaica
