Despite admitting “respect for a very good Jamaica College team”, St George’s College’s coach, Neville Bell, said his charges are looking forward to ending the ‘dark blues’ reign in their backyard in today’s ISSA-FLOW Manning Cup final at Sabina Park.Bell is eyeing a clean sweep of all titles this season.”We want to win everything, but again, this is football and we are going to go up against a pretty decent team. We wanted to be in the final. This is what we have played for all season.”We know the Jamaica College team and they know us. They are a very very good team. We have a lot of respect for them,” Bell said.Bell’s team beat the defending champions 4-0 in the FLOW Super Cup recently, but he is aware that game is in the past, and today’s game is another massive encounter.”The ball is round and we certainly hope that we can execute just as well as in the Super Cup. We did well last week, that’s finished. They lost the FLOW Cup, they are now thinking about the Manning Cup, and so are we. Hopefully, we can get as good or even a better performance than we got last week,” Bell told The Gleaner.- S.F.
