Jamaica Gleaner - - TUESDAY SPORTS - Paul Clarke Gleaner Writer

AF­TER LEAD­ING Lennon High to a his­toric first lien on the ISSA-Flow Ben Fran­cis KO ti­tle, Fitzroy Cum­mings, the team cap­tain, said it’s only the be­gin­ning of great things from the school nes­tled in the hills of Mo­cho, Claren­don. “I feel de­lighted that we fi­nally took home a ma­jor tro­phy. Win­ning the Ben Fran­cis Cup is a big deal for all of us, and I am par­tic­u­larly happy to be the cap­tain of this team,” said Cum­mings. At a spe­cially ar­ranged cel­e­bra­tion yes­ter­day, Cum­mings along with his team­mates and the coach­ing staff were feted by the school, fam­ily mem­bers and res­i­dents of the hilly com­mu­nity, for their 4-2 vic­tory on penalty kicks last week over St El­iz­a­beth Tech­ni­cal. Cum­mings, who was like a rock at the heart of the defence for Lennon, noted his plea­sure, play­ing with his team­mates.

“This is a spe­cial set of play­ers to be play­ing with. We are like brothers. We en­joy so much of the same things and the coaches also treat us well and in re­turn we treat them with re­spect,” Cum­mings stated.

“We would love to also win the daCosta Cup and that would make it the most mem­o­rable year of my life so far, so it’s a great feel­ing right now,” he said.

Cum­mings was the goal scorer in their 1-0 semi-fi­nal win over Corn­wall Col­lege.
