Having seen St George's College cruise to a 4-1 win over Jonathan Grant High in the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association FLOW Manning Cup semi-finals on Saturday, team coach Neville Bell believes his charges could be considered the best schoolboy football team in the land if they win all four titles on offer.

St George's have already won the FLOW Super Cup and should they beat defending champions Jamaica College in the Manning Cup, win the Walker Cup and Olivier Shield it would be unprecedented.

JC advanced to the Manning Cup final with a 4-2 win over Denham Town, but they were beaten 4-0 by StGC the week before in the Super Cup final.

"The best is relative, I think we are a very, very good team, but I also think the Jamaica College team is a good team also, so again we look forward to the final," said Bell.

"We have one trophy, we are in two other finals and hopefully we will get to the Olivier Shield finals, we are going to go up against a pretty decent team and we hope we can do it," said Bell, who has won five Manning Cup titles so far.

"We are fired up for the game. We play hard every game, all the teams that come against us, they come to beat us, and Jamaica College will be no different so we are fired up. We are here to play good football and to win as many titles as possible," said Bell.

Alex Marshall scored a first-half hat-trick which leaves him well on the way to his target of 30 goals this season.

"I just go out there and play for the team with a lot of confidence and ask God for his guidance and protection and smile and have fun," he said.
