Rock in Wolmer’s Boys’ de­fence

Jamaica Gleaner - - SATURDAY - – L.S.

“We re­alise that this (JC) team is un­der­ap­pre­ci­ated, but we re­spect ev­ery team. We have a fi­nal in front of us, and in terms of a big team, we have Wolmer’s in front of us and that’s the most im­por­tant thing,” he com­mented.

He noted that Wolmer’s will be on a high af­ter their Su­per Cup tri­umph and says full re­spect must be shown to them.

“They are good com­peti­tors; they are in the fi­nal; we re­spect them. They have won a com­pe­ti­tion so far, so we have to give re­spect to that as well. But we know our strength, we know our de­ter­mi­na­tion and what we are all about ... So it’s about char­ac­ter, de­ter­mi­na­tion and the whole Ja­maica Col­lege prod­uct,” he con­cluded. Jah­wani Hinds WOLMER’S CAPTAIN Jah­wani Hinds has been the rock, leader and chief or­gan­iser be­hind a water-tight Wolmer’s de­fence that has con­ceded just four goals in all com­pe­ti­tions this sea­son.

In the Man­ning Cup, only Cam­per­down have breached the na­tion’s mean­est school­boy de­fence, and that was in the first round of the com­pe­ti­tion.

But the big cen­tre-half, who moved over from Cal­abar three sea­sons ago, hopes to use all his ex­pe­ri­ence and know how to bring the Man­ning Cup back to He­roes Cir­cle for the first time in 22 years.

“We at Wolmer’s know that de­fence has been our strength, so we have to keep do­ing what we have been do­ing from sea­son and don’t con­cede. It’s just to keep the run go­ing. I have to mo­ti­vate each and ev­ery­one, so they know we can do it, be­cause be­ing captain of pre­vi­ous youth na­tional teams gives me the op­por­tu­nity to bring back my ex­pe­ri­ence to the school and let them know how it is over­seas and on the in­ter­na­tional scene.

“This is my fourth Man­ning Cup sea­son, so I hope to just use all that ex­pe­ri­ence to help each and ev­ery­one in the team,” he told The Gleaner.
