“Their preparation has gone to plan and, as a coaching team, they feel the team is ready for the job at hand and they are really looking forward to seeing the dividends of the team’s hard work pay off on the field on Saturday.”

    I thought we had lots of Bermudian kids coming through. They might be of course, but they don’t sound very Bermudian.
