Having been knocked out of the two previous editions by Wolmer's Boys' School, talismanic St George's College (STGC) forward Alex Marshall is plotting revenge, hoping his team will turn the tables when both teams meet in today's ISSA/FLOW Walker Cup final at the Stadium East Field.

St George's are the defending champions, having triumphed 3-2 over Jamaica College (JC) in last year's final at Constant Spring.

According to 17-year-old Marshall, who has scored 26 goals in all competitions this season, he is looking forward to beating Wolmer's most of all.

"From I was a little boy coming up from Pepsi (Under14), Colts (Under-16), they (Wolmer's) always knock me out of competitions, so I want to repay the favour this time," he told The Gleaner.

 

SUPERCUP

 

Even though St George's recently won the FLOW Super Cup by thrashing JC 4-0 in the final, Wolmer's will no doubt want to profit from the fact that STGC lost 1-0 in a bruising defeat to JC in the Manning Cup final.

"All I do is just go out there and make use of the opportunity and score. I don't know how much I will get (goals this season). It's up to God," Marshall said.
