Rock in Wolmer's Boys' defence

Wolmer's captain Jahwani Hinds has been the rock, leader and chief organiser behind a water-tight Wolmer's defence that has conceded just four goals in all competitions this season.

In the Manning Cup only Camperdown have breached the nation's meanest schoolboy defence, and that was in the first round of the competition.

But the big centre-half, who moved over from Calabar three seasons ago, hopes to use all his experience and know how to bring the Manning Cup back to Heroes Circle for the first time in 22 years.

"We at Wolmer's know that defence has been our strength, so we have to keep doing what we have been doing from season and don't concede. It's just to keep the run going. I have to motivate each and everyone, so they know we can do it, because being captain of previous youth national teams gives me the opportunity to bring back my experience to the school and let them know how it is overseas and on the international scene.

"This is my fourth Manning Cup season so I hope to just use all that experience to help each and everyone in the team," he told The Gleaner.
