AFTER a near-perfect season with 21 goals in all competitions, St George's College's leading marksman, Alex Marshall is putting team ahead of self when StGC face defending champions Jamaica College for the prestigious FLOW Super Cup inside the National Stadium, today.

The former national Under-17 midfielder plays centre-forward for StGC to deadly effect, netting six Super Cup goals.

Today, he will no doubt be locked in a duel against the astute, rock-solid and equally gifted captain Allando Brown, in the centre of JC's defence.

"I expect it to be a very intense match so I am looking forward to doing well for the team. I hope with God's help, I hope I can deliver goals and win the trophy," Marshall said of today's game.

Marshall admitted that he was not at his best against North Street rivals Kingston College, but was happy to score and get the job done.

"I wouldn't say they rely on me but they expect me to go out there every time I get the opportunity and make use of them," he said.

"I aim to score 30 goals so hopefully with God's help I can win each final way play in and I can add more goals," he added.

"We can win three trophies. We have the team that can do it."

Coach Neville Bell has no fears over his leading player's fitness.

"If you watch Alex, he enjoys his game more than anyone else I know. The reason I took him out, we had the game won and he was being beaten up all game," he said.
