Charl­ton con­fi­dent Claren­don will win ‘all four tro­phies’

Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS - Shayne Fair­man Gleaner Writer

CAP­TAIN CREGGTON Charl­ton, the tip of the Claren­don Col­lege (CC) at­tack­ing pyra­mid, is ready to lead his school to school­boy foot­ball supremacy and “win all four tro­phies this sea­son”. He is on a high now, hav­ing scored the 1-0 win­ner at the 50th minute over 2014 cham­pi­ons and last sea­son’s beaten fi­nal­ists, Ja­maica Col­lege (JC), in the In­terSe­condary Schools Sports As­so­ci­a­tion (ISSA)-FLOW Su­per Cup at Sabina Park on Satur­day. “The sea­son is

go­ing well. We are un­de­feated so far and we are gonna win the (daCosta Cup, FLOW Su­per Cup, Ben Fran­cis and Olivier Shield), all four ti­tles,” pointed out the con­fi­dent player, who is eye­ing 25 goals. “Yes, we can win all four. I am try­ing to score at least 25 goals this sea­son. I will try to put away my chances and try to bond my team to­gether so we can achieve our goals,” he told The Gleaner.

Cour­tesy of the for­ward’s hero­ics, CC pro­gressed to the quar­ter-fi­nals, where they will play Ex­cel­sior High next Satur­day.

GO­ING FO EV­ERY­THING

“We are good this year be­cause of our com­mit­ment, our to­geth­er­ness, and we are go­ing for all tro­phies,” he re­it­er­ated, adding that his school might be “un­der­rated” against Kingston schools, but they will come to give their best.

“I want to lead my team to all four tro­phies be­cause they think we can’t win them,” stressed the game-win­ning skip­per.

The Claren­don-based school were last daCosta Cup win­ners in 2014.

How­ever, they were stopped from cop­ping the dou­ble Olivier Shield by cor­po­rate area king­pins JC.

The Claren­don team is coached by Paul ‘Te­gat’ Davis, man­aged by Richard ‘Richie P’ Palmer, with Len­worth ‘Lenny’ Hyde as the as­sis­tant coach.

“They (JC) beat me 2014 in the Olivier Shield and now I’ve taken back my re­venge. No fear play­ing JC. JC isn’t a top-class team like a Barcelona. It’s just another team like ev­ery other school,” he rea­soned, while cred­it­ing team­work for the win.

Claren­don Col­lege won 1-0.
