St George's College Manning Cup star, Alex Marshall who recently spent six weeks with German club, St Pauli, described his trial stint as a wonderful experience.

The exciting young attacker thought he made and good impression at the second division outfit during his time there, but would not reveal if he would be returning.

"I think it was a great trip and a wonderful experience," he told STAR Sports following St George's College's 2-1 defeat to Kingston College in Saturday's Roper Cup at Emmett Park.

Being the only Jamaican there, with no friend or family and I still went out and tried to showcase my talent," he said.

"I got a first hand experience to see what professional life is like. The coach there says I have a good eye for football and that I can be the guy to make the pass. He says that I fight for the ball and move in space well, so hopefully next time it will be much better," he added.

When quizzed on the possibility of him returning for another stint with the club in the future, his only response was.

"I am working on my physical attributes".

Last year the left-footer schoolboy football season ended disappointinglyafter St George's finished with just one of four possible trophies.

But despite some observers saying they are not as strong this, with the departure of Chevon Stewart and Gregory Messam Jnr, Marshall says they will be challenging for all titles. He also acknowledges that more responsibility will be on his shoulder but he ready for the task.

"This Manning Cup season I am looking to compete for every trophy as last year, playing our type of football and trusting in god. I know I will have to work harder than everyone else, I know that for show so I hope everything goes well."
