MOVING FORWARD Jamaica College (JC) captain Allando Brown warned his counterpart Shevon Stewart and the entire St George’s College (STGC) team to expect a different outcome the next time they meet, after STGC’s 4-0 hammering of his JC unit in Saturday’s ISSA/Flow Super Cup final. Both schools have dominated local schoolboy football for the better part of the last decade, but you wouldn’t have been able to tell after STGC ambushed the former champions inside a packed National Stadium. While STGC looks forward to the Walker Cup final against Wolmer’s Boys, JC, which ended last season with three titles under their belts, will now put all their efforts into successfully defending the Manning Cup, and according to Brown, if they meet STGC along the way, the outcome will be different. FANTASTIC WIN “It’s always about guts. I came out here and did my best. Maybe it’s not as good enough, it’s still my best, I gave my hundred, maybe a 110 per cent. Expect more from Jamaica College going into the Manning Cup finals; we just have to use this loss as a stepping stone,” Brown said. “We lost one of our main trophies, but we still have the biggest one of all, the Manning Cup, so we are going out there and trying to defend our title,” Brown added. In the fast approaching Manning Cup semis JC is expected to meet first-time semi-finalist Denham Town, while St George’s College should play Jonathan Grant. Stewart, however, underlined that his STGC team is determined to grab all four titles this season – the Manning Cup, Walker Cup and Olivier Shield to add to their shiny new Super Cup crown. “It’s a very fantastic feeling to win like this knowing I missed two games and I came back in this one to play a very important role. It’s a very magnificent feeling right now. I have been waiting for this for a very long time. We see ourselves in all the finals this year, we are here now and we delivered,” said Stewart. He assisted Alex Marshall’s first goal and was their midfield engine before being substituted in the second half. “I want to win everything in my final year. We have always been a confident team, and coming out here and beating JC 4-0 is a great feeling, and we just have to go back in training knowing that we have three other Cups we can win,” he added.
