St George’s striker Jonté Smith encouraged by flying start

Jonté Smith, the St George’s Colts striker, is encouraged by his team’s flying start to the season and his own personal contribution in the attacking third of the pitch.

Jarreau Hayward’s team have gone unbeaten in their opening four Premier Division fixtures and top the standings on goal difference over champions Dandy Town and North Village who are also yet to suffer defeat.

“It’s been a good start to the season for the team being undefeated so far, but our toughest challenge is always the next game,” Smith told The Royal Gazette. “We need to keep that mentality and be up for the fight every week.”

St George’s soared to the top spot of the table thanks to an emphatic 11-1 rout of Robin Hood on their own patch at Wellington Oval on Sunday.

“As a team we performed really well,” Smith added. “Robin Hood gave us a test early in the game. They seem to have some promising young players in my opinion.

“I think our captain Kashae Hall led and organised our midfield and backline very well.

“We worked extremely well as a unit, but we have to remain humble and work hard to avoid any complacency.”

Smith is also off to a flyer having scored seven goals in his only two appearances to date this season.

“Personally, I was happy with my performance,” he said.

“I felt fitter and a bit sharper, so I feel that I’m getting to where I want to be each week with training and games.

“I’m pleased on a personal note to have scored seven so far this season, but we have plenty of goal scorers and creative players in our team, so I feel we’ll always be a threat going forward.”
