GLENMUIR High's four year daCosta Cup veteran and captain, Kevon Lambert, has been a source of great inspiration for the Clarendon school this schoolboy football season.

The 18-year-old central midfielder has netted 12 goals and contributed six assists for the Jackie Walters-coached team since the start of the season.

His dream of ending his schoolboy career with the daCosta Cup were dashed after the team lost successive quarter-final games to Rusea's and Clarendon College.

The lanky playmaker believes he made significant contributions to his team's run to the quarters this season and wants to end his schoolboy career with at least a victory.

"I have helped my team so we can reach this far and I have put out the hard work so that we could go further. As captain I look to myself to contribute a lot towards this team. I know it's going to take a lot of hard work to regain the daCosta Cup but we are up for it," he said.

"It has been a good effort from my team against, we have a very quality team," he told STAR Sports.

Glenmuir play surprise team Dinthill in their last quarter-final game this Wednesday and Lambert is confident they can overcome their setback and end the competition on a winning note.

"We have a chance to win, but we have to put in the hard work and show the determination and see if we can go for it," he said.

"I just want to lead my team on the right path, so they can follow me as a leader and an example. I want to leave with the win and we can't accomplish it without hard work and determination. So for my teammates it's just hard work and dedication, just the same," he added.
