May Pen, Clarendon — A week after beating Cornwall College to take the all-rural ISSA/Wata daCosta Cup, Carendon College travelled to the National Stadium in Kingston and stopped Kingston College 1-0 to capture the ISSA Olivier Shield.

The Chapelton-based school claimed the prestigious title with 87 minutes gone in what had been a highly competitive contest when 65th-minute substitute Andre Nicholson blasted home an unstoppable right-foot shot.

It was the first Olivier Shield for a rural school since 2006 when Glenmuir High shared the title with Bridgeport High.

Clarendon College dedicated their triumph to the late Winston Chung-Fah who coached the school in the late 1970s — winning the Olivier Shield in 1977. That 77 team, considered among the best ever in Jamaican schoolboy football, included current coach Lenworth Hyde who was arguably the leading schoolboy football star at the time.

This was a glorious football season for Clarendon College. They lost just once — to Charlie Smith High in the ISSA Champions Cup which was eventually won by Cornwall College.
