Wolmer's Boys' captain, Kashaun Smith, said the Heroes Circle-based school should have had a more successful 2015 schoolboy football season. However, he believes that the Walker Cup KO title is worth fighting for and declared that his team would be giving everything to end with a trophy.

"It is our last match and a chance to get a trophy, and we are going to do our best. We would have wanted the Manning or Super Cup more, but this is still a title, and we are going to do our best to win it," he told The Gleaner.

The right back is part of the Wolmer's strong defence, which conceded just seven goals in 15 matches this season, three of which came against Jamaica College (3-1) in the Manning Cup quarter-final.

Despite St George's potency in attack, the defender is confident, they can nullify the threat of Alex Marshall, Shevon Stewart, Gregory Messsam Jr, and company.

"They are very good footballers, scoring a lot of goals, but our strength is defence, and we are confident that we can keep a shut-out, but we have to take our chances when we get them and make as little defensive errors as possible," he continued.

"I think I have done well as captain. There is a lot more responsibility and the pressure to lead the team on the field as well as off it. But we are in a final.

"This will be a very interesting match-up. The best defence against the best attack. What will decide the game, though, is who makes fewer mistakes, so we have to take our chances when we get them and make as little defensive errors as possible," he said.
