‘Admiral’ Bailey lifting Tivoli Gardens FC with ‘basics’ in RSPL

first_imgTwo-title winning Tivoli Gardens Football Club coach Glendon ‘Admiral’ Bailey has admitted that he found his former team in a less than ideal state and has been having to teach football tactics from the very basics.Bailey replaced Christopher Bender late this season and got his team off to a come-from-behind 2-1 win over Rivoli United at the Edward Seaga Sports Complex.”There is a lot of work to be done. First and foremost, I have to get them more tactically aware so they understand the role and understand where they are supposed to play on the football field and what time, and then the playing conditions,” Bailey outlined.When asked if his team could rebound to finish among the top four and make it into the semi-final round, Bailey said that he was not looking that far.”There is still a lot of work to be done; there is nothing to celebrate. In terms of the fitness level and the whole understanding role for the football field, there is still a long journey, still a long way to go, but it is always good to start out positive and winning,” stressed Bailey, who admits to taking time away from his musical career to deliver Tivoli from a relegation struggle.Tivoli then rallied to a similar 2-1 come-from-behind win over Harbour View on Sunday, taking them to four points ahead of the relegation zone and one point behind ninth-place Cavalier SC.”It was very important for us. I think it gets us out of the red temporarily. One step, one day at a time, but there is still a lot of work to be done,” Bailey said.last_img read more

It does take a while to learn there is a learnin

first_img“It does take a while to learn, there is a learning curve to it but hopefully once we do get a chance to meet with our players, we can cut that curve down a little bit by tweaking some things, by using different terminologies they are familiar with and eliminate some of the steps along the process.” Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Top Stories The Arizona Cardinals have a new defensive coordinatorwho spent the 2010 season as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers’coaching staff. It just isn’t either of the names that were heavily toutedfor the job over the last month.Steelers’ defensive backs coach Ray Horton, not Keith Butler or Dick LeBeau,was named as the Cardinals’ replacement for Bill Davis Wednesday, agreeing to a three-year deal with the team. Prior to joining Ken Whisenhunt’s staff he spent the lastthree seasons working with Pittsburgh’s secondary, a position he waspromoted to in 2007 after Mike Tomlin was hired as head coach. D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Horton may lack experience as a defensive coordinator but he certainly doesn’t lack in confidence. During his introductory press conference Wednesday he made it very clear that he is ready for the challenge of turning around the Cardinals defense.“This team was in the Super Bowl two years ago. We were in the playoffs a year ago. We just fell a little short last year. We aim to be right back there in the playoffs pushing for a Super Bowl bid. There’s no question about it. We’re going to improve on defense.“What we’re aiming to be is one of the top defenses in the league, bar none,” the new coordinator said.He also wasn’t afraid to share with the media what his defensive style will be.“We’ll be an aggressive, disciplined, downhill attacking defense.“Our motto is going to be: ‘Go get ’em’. We’re going to make the quarterback very uncomfortable,” Horton said.Horton added on 620 KTAR’s Gambo and Ash show that he plans to build on the Cardinals number one ranked red zone defense and will bring the personality of Pittsburgh’s defensive style with him. “It’s a 3-4 attacking style defense, schematically very sound,” Horton said. 0 Comments   Share   last_img read more
