St Jago's performance in this schoolboy football season has earned them many admirers, and one of their shining stars throughout the campaign has been striker Ryan Smart.

Smart, who is the team's second top scorer with nine goals, says the sky's the limit for them this season and he's confident they can end the season, with some trophy success.

"We can more than win a trophy this season because St Jago is growing from strength to strength. We believe, and once you believe and put God first, you can be successful. We fear no team," he told Star Sports.

The speedy striker admitted his conversion rate could have been better, but he says there is still a lot to play for, and he has a lot more goals to contribute before the season ends.

"My coach always tells me that I have goals in me and that I just have to come out and execute. I feel okay with the amount that I've scored so far, but I know I should have scored more. But I have more goals in me, and I will score more," he said.

Smart netted a brace in St Jago's 2-0 win over St Elizabeth Technical in the FLOW Super Cup quarter-final, and he is hoping to have a similar goalsscoring performance in today's semi-final against St George's College.

"I have had some bad days, and so I want to come out and execute, and I feel good in myself," he added.
