In the now defunct National Premier League, Boys’ Town have had an illustrious history. As one of the first professional clubs formed in the land of wood and water, Boys’ Town were dominant in the 1980’s – winning 3 titles with Jamaican football icons like former national coach Carl Brown and the legendary Lenworth Hyde, now coach of Digicel Premier League rivals Tivoli Gardens. But since their last title in 1989 the Boys’ have been unable to live up to their storied history.
But now in the revamped Digicel Premier league under the stewardship of the charismatic Andrew Price, the ‘Red Brigade’ find themselves second in the standings on 18 points after 9 games and on the verge of getting a shot at the first piece of silverware for the season – the end of round finals.
Coach Price commented on the resurgence of his legendary club: “I believe that three years on, since our return to Premier League my club has acclimatized to the nuances of the competition and we are now well equipped this season to challenge for the title. We have competed effectively in the past, so there is no time like the present to make this challenge. What we need to continue to do for the remainder of the round is accumulate as many points as possible to ensure that we are in the End of Round Finals.”
