St. Kitts' technical director Lenny Taylor put his team through their paces at National Stadium yesterday and then predicted they would entertain the crowds in this weekend's double header.

Jamaican Taylor, who has been running the national football programme in St Kitts & Nevis for the past three years, said his team had a splash of star quality from the likes of Atiba Harris, who plays in the MLS for Chivas USA, and Gerard Williams, who plays professionally for W Connection Wanderers in Trinidad.

But he insisted his side, which is preparing for World Cup qualifiers against Belize and Mexico (if they get through round one) were all about the 'team concept' rather than individuals.

"We emphasise team play and you will see a lot of inter passing, a lot of inter-play. We work to the team ethos."

He added that this was a young side with the emphasis on preparation for the future,

"We come here in friendship, we come here with a young team and we are just going to try to play good exciting, attractive football for the fans and make sure also that we excite the Kittitian people living on the island.

"I think we have a pretty good team - it should be a good game."

Taylor, who like his managerial adversary at the weekend, Keith Tucker, coached in the U.S. College system, has been rebuilding the soccer programme in St Kitts, from the youth upwards.

The first graduate of his youth system - 17-year-old Travis Somersall - is set to feature in tonight's game.

And Taylor believes that when Bermuda brings in a technical director his first focus will have to be the youth system.

"There are similarities (between Bermuda and St Kitts) It's a Caribbean mentality, a Caribbean approach to football.

"In order for the Caribbean to move forward we have to have better coaching education programmes - beginning with kids under 12.

"Without a national philosophy of coaching it's difficult to have a national philosophy of playing.

"Each coach has to reinforce each other. Almost every successful football country has that structure."

Taylor, who coached at City University in New York, believes Bermuda has a good man to take the country forward in national coach Keith Tucker, who coached at Washington DC based Howard Univesity.

"He's an established coach in the U.S. college system.

"He's someone I've known from the U.S. I think he'll do a fantastic job because of his temperament and his understanding of the game."

Sylvester Fraser, VP of St. Kitts FA, urged all Kittitians living in Bermuda to come and support their boys. "We're all one family," he said.
