United Petrotrin and Trinidad and Tobago international midfielder Keon Daniel has been unanimously voted the Round Three Most Valuable Player, an award picked up by Marvin Oliver (Caledonia AIA) in RD1 and Anton Pierre (Defence Force) in RD2.
The 20 year old Keon Daniel is the youngest player this season to achieve the award.
Keon picked up his 21” Flat Screen Television courtesy sponsors Courts Trinidad and Tobago Limited on Monday at their Mega Store branch in San Juan.
Although the ‘Oilmen’ midfielder is delighted over his personal achievement, he wants more and targets 2008.
“I feel good as one of the young players in the League to show this type of character, but I want to see what else I can win. This is an award that my family and deceased mom will be proud of,” said the Tobago born footballer.
“Our (United Petrotrin) season is done but next year is going to be a better one for me personally, whosoever I play with.”
Keon who started off his professional career in 2006 when he joined United Petrotrin from Bertille St Clair Coaching School of Tobago said that he has gained a lot of experience that will make him an even better player in 2008.
Speaking on his team’s 2007 performance Keon said, “We had a good team and its not that the other teams we’re superior to us. It’s just that we lost concentration.”
United Petrotrin finished 7th in the TT Pro League, failing to make a Lucozade Sport Big Six place and their best knockout performance was a FA Trophy semi-final place.
Keon has also represented Trinidad and Tobago at Senior and U-23 levels this year and is aiming at securing his senior team spot for World Cup qualifiers.
“I played once for the senior team in the Digicel Shield against Mexico’s U-23 team but I want to get another chance to prove my worth for my country.”
