As we prepare for the start of the 2014 ISSA/LIME Schoolboy Football Season we are continuing with our new feature on our site called ‘Players to Watch”.

Today we present to you Mr. Junior ‘Starboy’ Flemmings, captain of Jamaica College 2013 Manning Cup and Oliver Shield Championship team.

Playing in the number 7 shirt and wearing the captains’ armband, Flemmings created terror for opposing goalkeepers for the past five seasons (he has been playing in the Manning Cup since third form).

In his 2013 campaign he netted 22 times to lead his beloved JC to victory in the Manning Cup and all island Schoolboy Supremacy, by defeating STETHS to lift the Oliver Shield.

His Grandmother has been the most influential person in his life for the man who likes Principles of Business as one of his favorites subjects in school.

When asked about his life ambition Flamming said “My ambition in life is to maximize my full potential which is self actualization but doing so I will reach at the highest point playing pro football in the English League”.

Defending your crown has always been one of the toughest things for any champion. The ‘Starboy’ was very confident when asked what can we expect from JC this season? “Great stuff, Team is looking good playing a attacking style of football as usual we have our same strike force from last year. Have a lot of seniority in the team so that will enhance our performance going into the season.”

You have to respect a man with confidence, when asked can JC retain the Manning Cup? “Yes we are going retain our two titles plus the Walker cup and the LIME Super Cup, very confident in that.”

This young man is beyond his years; he has been the captain of the Tivoli U13, U15, U17 and U20 teams and also represented the club in the 2012/2013 Jamaica’s National Premier League.

He has been called for national duty representing Jamaica at the U17 level and is in training with the U20 and National Senior Team, ‘The Reggae Boyz’.

We want to thank Junior for taking the time out to speak with us and wishing him all the best, not only in the Manning and National Premier League but his quest to play football in the Barclays English Premier League.
