St George's College striker Amoy Brown captured the inaugural ISSA/LIME Super Cup Golden Boot award. The presentation was made yesterday at the school's auditorium during devotion.

Brown was presented with the LIME Super Cup Golden Boot award and a Huawei Y 300 mobile phone by Stephen Miller, LIME's sponsorship and events manager.

Brown scored a hat-trick when his team defeated Godfrey Stewart High 5-1 in the opening round of the LIME Super Cup schoolboy football competition at the National Stadium on October 18.

St George's were eliminated by Wolmer's Boys' (3-0) in the second round a week later.

"First of all, thank God for this award. Without my teammates I would not get this award," the 18-year-old fifth-form student told The Gleaner.

"I feel great, very happy. It was a really great competition that gave us (the players) more experience in a professional atmosphere," he added.

Brown will be sitting eight subjects in the upcoming CSEC examinations and is also working towards a contract overseas. Although he would accept one anywhere, he said "my favourite club is Manchester United in England".

He also plans to pursue business as a career.

Great Coach

Brown, who resides in Burnside Valley, Red Hills, St Andrew, has high regards for his school coach Neville 'Bertis' Bell.

"He (Bell) is a great coach who also teaches us about life. He is one of the greatest persons I know," the former Quest Preparatory school student informed.

Meanwhile, LIME's Miller disclosed that the LIME Super Cup that was contested by the top eight urban-area and top eight rural-area schools was a "massive success".

"In terms of quality play, crowd support, it was truly massive, more than we expected. We also added an entertainment package for the family," he noted.

However, Miller pointed out that his company will look into scheduling for next year's competition.

"The Super Cup games put added strain on the players as it is played during the Manning and daCosta Cup season," Miller added.

He also says that the LIME Super Cup is here to stay.

"I think that the Super Cup is here to stay. It is a winner that brings the top 16 schools together playing on quality surfaces," he said.
