Head coach of Anglican Junior High School, Eddy Teye, has thrown the big gauntlet by claiming his side is capable of winning the ultimate title at the 2011 grand finale of the Milo Junior Ball Championship.
The tough-talking coach guided the Betom-based side to clinch the Eastern regional title on Friday February 25 in front of a partisan crowd.
His team was the first to arrive at the main basketball court of the Koforidua Secondary Technical School (K.S.T.S) and demonstrated that they have the drive to cause a major upset in the grand finale scheduled to take place on the 18&19 March, 2011 at the Aviation Social Centre.
Teye was instrumental in helping the side win the title for the first time with some antics on the baseline that caught the admiration of fans gathered at the venue.
He says he has enough arsenals to win the national event next month.
‘Indeed we’re coming to Accra with one mission and that’s to win the ultimate. We’re very determined and thankfully I have a crop of players who are hungry for success and after winning the championship in the Eastern region, the sky will be the limit for us’. Teye told BASKETBALLghana.com
‘We know the pedigree of some of the schools especially those in the Greater Accra region but we’ll not be overawed by the occasion and live up to expectations. We’re holding the flag of the Eastern region and will do our best to make history once again’.
Anglican JHS will know their opponents for the grand finale when the Greater Accra and Central regional championships are concluded on March 7th and 11th respectively.
