Holy Trinity's star striker and captain, Shai Smith, has been leading from the front as the team's top goalscorer on eight goals from seven games in Group F of the ISSA/Flow Manning Cup.

According to Smith, his team is ready to come away with the Manning Cup title for the first time in their history. They are currently in pole position and look a sure bet to top the group.

"We have to fight for what we want, so the aim is to work together as a team," Smith, who also represented Portmore United in the Red Stripe Premier League last season, told STAR Sports.


The lanky striker has netted in four games with hat-tricks against Clan Carthy High on September 19 and Jose Marti on September 25 and one goal each in games against St Jago and Ascot.

Holy Trinity placed third in last year's Manning Cup, and Smith, who is in his third and final year, is highly confident that they can win the title this year.

"We have the ability to go all the way. We can win titles this year. The aim is to be consistent and take it one game at a time,' Holy Trinity skipper confidently said.
