St George’s hammer Edith 11-0 in the (ISSA)/Pepsi/Digicel Manning Cup urban area senior schoolboy football competition

September 28th, 2010

National Under-20 representative, Rohan Roye, scored a four-timer to guide defending champions, St George’s College, to an 11-0 hammering of Edith Dalton James in their Group E match of the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA)/Pepsi/Digicel Manning Cup urban area senior schoolboy football competition, at Winchester Park (St George’s) yesterday.

 Roye, who made the switch from North Street rivals Kingston College to St George’s at the start of the season, has now netted 11 goals in four matches.

Roy scored his goals in the 9th, 46th, 48th, and 89th minutes. Devon Williams (40th, 70th), Brandon Salmon (13th, 51st), Kendon Anderson (26th), Carl Reid (37th) and substitute Davian Kelly (76th), were the other goalscorers for the Neville ‘Bertis’ Bell-coached St George’s .

Season aim

The fleet-footed Roye, who also set up a number of his team’s other goals, is delighted with his performance so far and aims to score over 20 goals this season.

“It is a joy to score four goals in one game, but it would not be possible without teamwork, and that is why I scored these goals today,” said Roye.

“My aim is to score 20 or more goals this season, but I just have to continue to put in the hard work in training and to listen to the coach and once we play posessory football, then the goals will come,” Roye added.

St George’s, who are aiming to secure their third consecutive hold on the trophy, have now won four straight matches in the competition. Despite this fact, Bell admitted that they still had a lot of work do to retain the title.

“We still have some tough games because this is still the first round and we are not where we want to be yet and we still a lot more work to do, but we are happy where we are at the moment,” said Bell.

“It think that it was a tough day for football because the field was not ideal, but we were able to get the better of Edith Dalton,” Bell said. “It wasn’t a tough game, but we got a couple of injuries that bother me a bit, and I certainly am disappointed with that, but I am happy for the three points.”

Meanwhile, Omar Williams, coach of Edith Dalton James, who have lost all their four matches, said: “It was a very poor performance because we came here hoping to get a draw out of this match based of the inexperience of our players, but none of them listened to my instructions and in the end we got thrashed.”

Meanwhile, all the other matches scheduled yesterday were rained out and will be slated for another date.
