Clarendon's Humble Lion have been handed a triple blow for this season's Red Stripe Premier League as they have lost three of their top players to the newly promoted Mount Pleasant academy. Merron Gordon who guided the team to an eight place finish last season after a slow start believes this is a huge blow for the club but understands the move.
“Ricardo Campbell one of our defenders; we lost Kevaughn Isaacs , one of our best young midfielders who is also now in the national programme and Ricardo Dennis is also one of our young wingers. We lost those three to Mount Pleasant,” said Gordon. Semi-finalist from the 2016/2017 season, the Effortville-based club have the services of 11 goal man from that season, Francois Swaby.
Gordon says this could bring some dynamism to the attacking line which scored 39 goals last season. “Francois Swaby who was away on contract abroad is back now. He was the main reason why we didn’t finish in the top six last year because he was always our main goal-scorer so Francois Swaby with a Craig Foster if we can get that chemistry going then we can get a lot of goals there,” noted Swaby.
