Robin­son: JC have what it takes

Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORT - – L.S.

JA­MAICA COL­LEGE’S cap­tain, Oquin Robin­son, says the more ma­ture team will walk away with the Man­ning Cup prize when they square off against Wolmer’s Boys in the fi­nal at the Na­tional Sta­dium this evening.

In a team of ac­com­plished school­boy foot­ballers, Robin­son was cho­sen to lead the group, and so far, he has led with dis­tinc­tion. The team’s only de­feat this sea­son came in the Su­per Cup at the hands of Claren­don Col­lege, so he be­lieves his lead­er­ship has been vi­tal to the team and that it will be very im­por­tant when they play the de­cid­ing game.

“I am re­ally im­por­tant be­cause we have a lot of lead­ers in this team, play­ers in the na­tional team, play­ers in the Pre­mier League, play­ers from the daCosta Cup, and play­ers who have played in this com­pe­ti­tion be­fore. So my re­spon­si­bil­ity has been re­ally great. I have to make sure they are mo­ti­vated, de­ter­mined and fo­cused on what is at hand,” he said.

The cen­tral mid­fielder be­lieves the more ex­pe­ri­enced team will take the ti­tle and he ar­gued that he and his team fit the bill more than their op­po­nent.

“It’s go­ing to be a very im­por­tant game, but as the name states, Man­ning Cup. So it’s the ‘man­li­est’ team that will win, and we have the ma­tu­rity and con­fi­dence,” he said.
