Still regarded as one of the fittest players on the National team, skipper Dwight Yorke says he’s heading off to Sydney where he will attempt to improve his fitness level ahead of the new A-League season with Sydney FC.

T&T head coach Leo Beenhakker will no doubt be happy with hearing that ahead of Yorke’s return to the “Warriors” line up for the August 17 World Cup qualifier away to United States.

“My new career down in Australia is about to kick off and I’m really excited about it,” Yorke said before leaving the Sheraton Hotel in Monterrey on his way to London last Thursday.

“I have some stuff to take care of in England and then head down to Sydney. I can’t wait to get there. It’s a new challenge in my career. “Pre-season starts on July 1 and I’ll be working extremely hard to stay fit and get things started with my new club.

“Hopefully it would do me good on my return to the National team for the next game against America. I think all our guys will be coming back even fitter and ready for the remaining games,” Yorke added.

Sydney FC meantime, defeated AS Magenta 2-0 to win the Oceania Club Championship last weekend which means they will take part in the FIFA World Club Championship in Japan in December.
