TUCKER, St James — In addition to being competitive on the field, two-time Red Stripe Premier League champions Montego Bay United, are to undertake outreach programmes in communities across Montego Bay.

Newly appointed head coach, Vassell Reynolds, says the club's new management, led by Dr Germaine Spencer, has a vision that will go beyond just playing football.

“The new vision is not just a football club, but a football club that will engage in social development within the communities, and to help people in their communities and the parish, and we plan a lot of outreach,” Reynolds told the Jamaica Observer West last week.

Reynolds, who led Rusea's High to the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association daCosta Cup title last year in his first season in the competition, takes over the team after last season's campaign ended under a cloud with the team finishing closer to the bottom of the table than the top, losing their last three games.

According to information reaching the Observer West, the season will start with a public launch at the Bay West Shopping Centre next week, as the club seeks to reconnect with the public that has supported it since its inception. The start of the season has been pushed back to September 16.

The development of the players, Reynolds said, is going to be an important part in the club.

“We stress that players are the main part of the club, and part of the new thrust is assisting the players to realise their personal goals, and so far, the support has been fabulous,” he pointed out.

After finishing ninth in the competition last year, and the subsequent change in the management that was led by founding President Orville Powell, Reynolds said the spirit in the club is at a high level.

“The vibes are high. We have had team meetings and everyone is very optimistic. we recognise that the previous management did a lot of work and built a strong foundation and set the stage for what is to come. They have been there and done that, and it is now up to the new management to pick up the pieces, especially from the disappointment of last year, and to work as hard as possible to add to the legacy that was laid down from previous management,” Reynolds explained.
