Coach Emmanuel Eckow Amoako insists his James Town side will be looking to prove that they’re not a team that any position should take lightly, despite some insinuations that the group might be over the hill.
James Town looked rejuvenated in the qualifiers after they won two out of three games to book their passage to the finals.
There are many who have question the ability of the side to progress from the group phase after they were handed a tough draw.
They will battle high-scoring side Burma Camp, Kwadaso and Djejeano-Anafo in a group that many pundits have described as difficult to surmount.
Not many gave them the gist to qualify to the finals but they silenced their critics with victories over Adabraka and Labadi during the Greater Accra qualifiers and their head trainer is primed to run the circles around his opponent.
“That what people said when we started the regional qualifiers and so I am not perturbed at all,” Amoako said
“We are preparing feverishly for the finals. We respect our opponents but we don’t fear them at all,”
“I appreciate that we are in a difficult group. But that will not be enough grounds to start throwing our hands in despair,”
“We will meet the teams squarely and ensure that we win at all cost. The players know what is at stake and so I am not sure they will not slack.”
James Town will open their group A account against Burma Camp before playing Djejeano-Anafo and wrap up with their final game against Kwadaso.
