Despite being the outstanding performer for Jamaica College in this season's FLOW/ISSA Manning Cup, attacking midfielder Tyreek Magee is not about to get complacent.

He knows how important it is to stay on top of his game if the defending champions are to upset the odds and win a fifth straight Manning Cup title.

"I always try to keep myself motivated. I am one of the key players in the team, so in every game I have to give a good performance. I have to be very focused and that's why my performances are consistent," he told STAR Sports.

"I think I have done fairly well, but I don't want to tell myself that, I just want to continue working hard and smart," he added, not long after helping JC to a 5-0 win over Mona at Old Hope Road on Tuesday.

The Jamaica under-17 star, who is the team's leading scorer with five goals, was also pleased with the strides his team, which looked a shadow of themselves at the start of the season, has made.

Magee, who said he has no personal targets and just goes out each game to do his best, has warned JC's doubters to write them off at their own peril.

"Every match we gradually improve, so I am grateful for the performance. Over the years, we have always been doubted, but going down to the late part of the season, we always prove our doubters wrongs, and we want to do that again this year," he said.

"I expect to get better, I expect the team to get better, and I expect us to go on to defend our title," he concluded.
