Tema Youth coach Emmanuel Quaye is buzzing with confidence ahead of the start of the 2014 Greater Accra Basketball League this weekend.

The ambitious Tema-based side are seen as one of the major threat to CEPS dominance as they have promised to give them a good run for their money.

Their tough-talking coach Emmanuel Quaye, nicknamed, rubberman has expressed his satisfaction with the character and mentality of his strong list of candidates who are vying to help him reclaim the title from CEPS.

The battle for supremacy begins on April 24 with the squad containing fresh faces and rising talent as well some old players and returnees.

“I’m excited about our squad coming together and starting our preparations,” said Quaye

“The depth of our programme is growing and with that, the competition for all positions is tight. This is both pleasing and tough for our selection panel.

“Our preparation will be short. We need to be ready to play well in our first game against Holy Family on Saturday April 25.

“We will need to make the most of our time in preparation.”

The club will hope to unleash Cameroonian import Edwin as well new recruits Baba formerly of Accra Polytechnic, Kankam, Kyekyeku, Selasi and former University of Ghana star Kwame Boamah.

Old stars Selorm and Mark as still around and will prove experience cover for the side.

Quaye  is a known figure in Ghana basketball having crafted a formidable force over the years.

Despite coming close on a number of occasions, he has almost lost the bragging rights over veteran Brimah Lawah in the race for the top notch trainer in the West Africa country.
