New Amsterdam (NA) United coach Lennox Adams says that to be afforded the opportunity to compete in the inaugural Guyana Football Federation (GFF) Premier League is a great experience and a privilege.
Speaking to Stabroek Sport via telephone, Adams said: “It’s a real blessing and one that we have been waiting for. We are one of the top 16 teams in the country and we feel good about it. To meet at this level and to be competing against good teams, it will be a very good but challenging experience for us.
“Whatever the tournament has to offer, we have planned and prepared for,” said Adams.
Questioned about his side’s preparation going into the event, Adams said: “It has been coming along alright. We are working on the physical, technical and tactical aspects as well as the overall camaraderie of the team.
“We want to get unity in the side. We are also focusing on mental preparation because we know you have to be mentally tough in a tournament like this,” added Adams.
Asked about the expectations for his side in the tournament, Adams said “The first thing is we want to stay in the league and don’t get relegated. However, we do consider ourselves contenders as we have the experience and a few former youth nationals that can compete.
“We are a surprise element and package in the tournament and we have put things in place to win. We have no fear whatsoever and we will not only give a good account of ourselves but also for Berbice.”
