St. George’s College will start their Manning Cup campaign this Monday against Tarrant High at Winchester Park.
The Georgians are a young side with a splatter of older players in their ranks. Good leadership is expected from senior players Arsenio Hamilton, Cheva Denton, Matthew Wilson(Captain) and ace striker Akeem Robotham.
Additionally, we have a crop of younger but talented players who, from pre-season displays, seem capable of making a real impact. That was pre-season. We now come to the real deal.
The team seem balanced with a bench with quality especially in the mid field department. The unpredictability comes when we play high intensity matches, on pitches with poor surfaces and with the weather. It appears that the weather condition may become unpredictable earlier than the late October/ December period when we inevitably get disruptions. In these settings, the team has to maintain the discipline and rely on their intense preparation.
Tarrant is not expected to pose much of a problem for the Georgians. The real challenge in the zone will come from Denham Town, a real threat and to a lesser extent St. Catherine High.
So, let the competition begin!
Come out and cheer on the Light Blues this Monday. Match starts at 3:00 pm.
