After the match Coach Stephen Clarke of Village Superstars, said the win was a great way to start the season.  “For the players, they wanted to go out and seal this win to start off the season on a positive note; win another championship because when it’s all said and done, you will only be remembered by how many championships you won,” Clarke said.

Meanwhile, rookie coach of St. Paul’s United and former player Thrizen Leader said defensive errors cost them the match. “I thought tonight was an excellent game to start off the season. I think in football, teams that make the least mistake eventually win the game and tonight we made two crucial mistake which cost us the game,” Leader said.

The President’s Cup was preceded by the official opening of the SKNFA Football season, with the presentation of the main sponsor National bank Group of companies and other corporate partners: SKB MRI and Dasani Water and Powerade. Representatives of the SKNFA member clubs were also present. Fireworks lit up the Basseterre skies just before the match started, signaling the grand commencement of the 2024 football season.
