Livingston basks in match winning goal for Molynes United
LIVINGSTON... it has motivated me to put in even more work.

Rashawn Livingston left it very late to make the most telling contribution of the game when his second goal of the season guided Molynes United to their second win of the campaign in the Jamaica Premier League as they edged Vere United 1-0 at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex on Sunday.

Livingston’s 83rd minute winner came after Vere failed to clear their lines properly following a corner kick and he was able to eventually squeeze the ball home from an acute angle to ensure that his team moved up to six points from four games.

The winger was delighted with not only grabbing the winner but his overall performance in the Molynes blue.

“My contribution was 100 per cent. I gave my best today (Sunday) as always and as you can see it paid off. I feel excellent and I am very grateful and excited about the goal.”

Livingston said that he is motivated after scoring the winner for his team.

“It’s the first goal of the game and it’s the winning goal, so it has motivated me to put in even more work,” he declared.

Livingston has been one of the bright sparks at the club since the start of the season and he puts it down to the work he has been doing on the training ground and hopes to continue for the rest of the campaign.

“I have been working very hard in training. Throughout the season it is quite possible that I will have the same form.”

Livingston believes that the game was won by Molynes due to the efforts on the training pitch leading up to the contest.

“It was very, very important to get the win. It was one of our main objectives during training (last) week to take the three points. We needed it and who wanted it more came out and got it,” he said.

Molynes United head coach Alex Thomas also heaped praises on his match winner after the game.

“Rashawn Livingston has been very, very, impressive. He has done well for himself and also for the team. He is a good team player, in training and in games. I will say to him, keep doing what you are doing. The sky is the limit and stay focused.”

Molynes missed out on the playoffs last season, but Livingston said that they are fully focused on winning the league this term.

“We want to win silverware this season, so the team is more competitive.”

The JPL is set to go on a break for the rest of the FIFA World Cup which began Sunday, before it returns in late December.
