    Kingston College (KC) coach Ludlow Bernard hailed a 2-1 defeat of St Andrew Technical (STATHS) in the semi-final of the ISSA/Digicel Manning Cup on Tuesday, as a vindication of the team’s fearless approach to the football.

    This time around last year it was STATHS who turned back the heavily favoured ‘Purples’, who employed much the same tactic, ensuring the North Street team remained one more season in the Manning Cup wilderness. 

    On this occasion, KC again pushed forward in waves but goals from Shaquille Campbell (49th) and Dwayne Atkinson (72nd) ensured that there would be no repeat of that result as Jevoney Johnson (75th) minute strike counted as a mere consultation.

    The result meant KC, who were defeated twice in the last three semi-finals, returned to the Manning Cup final for the first time in 18 years.

    “We needed to take chances.  So our aim was to come here and attack, attack, attack, because we were confident in our defence.  We had a small lapse at the end but we were still confident of holding out,” Bernard said.

    “I’m elated, I’m glad for the boys because they have really put in a lot of work for the last five months.  We came here with a never say die attitude and I told them fortune favours the brave.”
