Hot keeper could leave STATHS
Phillip Williams, coach of beaten Manning Cup finalists St Andrew Technical High School (STATHS), said he is not sure whether outstanding goalkeeper Jeadine White will return to the institution for his final year next season.
White, 17, was the best schoolboy goalkeeper this season, leading STATHS to the Manning Cup final, which they lost 3-5 on penalties to defending champions Jamaica College last Saturday at the National Stadium.
White's performance in goal was excellent throughout the season, conceding only eight goals in the Manning Cup.
He produced two brilliant saves before returning to score the penalty-kick winner in a quarter-final play-off game against St George's College on November 14, at the Constant Spring Complex.
Williams told STAR Sports that White has indicated that he will be looking at his options and he is, therefore, unsure whether the shot-stopper will be returning to Spanish Town Road.
"We are not sure if Jeadine will be coming back next season. I know he is looking to go overseas to college or playing professionally," said Williams.
"We wish him all the best in whatever he chooses, and we will just have to move. We have 18 players from this team who will be returning next season, so we will be right up there with the top teams next season," he said.
White also played a vital role in helping Cavalier regain promotion to the Premier League competition, producing outstanding performances in the Kingston and St Andrew Football Association Super League.
