Robinson: JC have what it takes

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.
