BYC, LISCR in “War-of-Words” on Friday’s Game



Liberia’s best football coach, Robert Larteh has revealed plans to bang LISCR FC on Friday to demonstrate their control in Liberian football.

The successful coach who has held the title: LFA Coach of the Year for 2-years said FC BYC will whip LISCR FC at least 2-0 on the Blue Field to erase the impression of LISCR being an archrival.

The BYC manager in an interview with the Daily Observer yesterday via mobile phone spoke confidently about his team’s chances of beating LISCR FC.

“We’re capable. We’re going to win at least 2-0 — we ’re the leading team in the country, and we have the caliber of players to outdo LISCR,” Coach Larteh said.

Coach Larteh, popularly known as Coach Pella, said strikers Van-Dave Harmon and Lamine Jabateh would be among Good Friday football’s scorers to diminish the Ship Boys.

He indicated that besides the already five new signees, BYC would parade two more new players (whose signings are officially in the making) – Christopher Momo, who plied his trade in Cameroon and Abdulai Conteh who had a sting in Sierra Leone.

The previously signed on players are potent forwarder Van-Dave Harmon, defender Alvin Maccornel, midfielders Amara Sackor and Abraham Cokie as well as goalie Allenton Sambah.

Also, four of the promoted players from BYC II are also in the line-up, which includes defenders Hilton Varney, Karleo Anderson, striker defensive midfielders Mark Paye and Molley Gray.

LISCR FC is also expected to show off their new players, which include potent striker Dominic Jlateh, midfielder Abraham Barshall and defender Grosso Sloboh.

Others are defender Blidi Jackson, midfielder Stephen Seamah,  striker Thomas Myers and midfielders Allen Njie Terrance Jones (on loan from Gardnersville FC) including defenders Momo Kiadi and Lasannah Kanneh.

 LISCR skipper Mohammed Varney has earlier expressed confidence of thrashing BYC FC 3-1, and would score more than one goal.

Skipper Varney told the Daily Observer through facebook chat on Tuesday that his side is determined to whip the current football champion to serve as impetus of winning the 2015 LFA League after two years of title drought.

“We are confident, we are strong, and we believe in our capacity to restore the years,” Varney said.

Additionally, the friendly is in celebration of the 2015 Good Friday, (Holy Friday) –traditionally the Friday immediately preceding Easter Sunday, the day on which Jesus Christ was crucified.

According to the organizer, admission is L$300 and there would be no free entry – and gate would be opened to the public at 12noon.
