Jamaica College (JC) Manning and Oliver Shield-winning defender Zeron Sewell is looking to make his mark at the senior level with Tivoli Gardens.

The 18-year-old rose to fame for his partnership with JC captain Allando Brown at the heart of the JC defence on their way to winning their third successive Manning Cup and Oliver Shield titles last season.

However, the towering young defender, who is already physically on par with his more senior counter-parts, is a Tivoli youth player, and he is convinced he can break into the senior team and help them avoid relegation.

"Playing in the National [Premier] League means there will be a bit of an adjustment, because it is rougher than the Manning Cup, but I can adapt and play, and I think I can make my mark at this level," he said.

"Tivoli is in the relegation zone right now. My objective is to go in and make a big impact on the field in this National League and help them out of relegation.

"The defenders are playing good, but with hard work, I know I can get into the team. I think we can get the job done if we are motivated and work hard," he continued.

"On a personal level, I hope to get as many starts as possible, be a major impact, and try to help the team keep as many clean sheets. For the season, I hope to get the team out of relegation and make the semi-final," he added.
