T&T Pro League

Shahdon off for Finland trials

DIRECTV W Connection attacker Shahdon Winchester should join the Pro League’s European exodus on Monday when he leaves for Finland and a trial with top flight club, FF Jaro.

Winchester has already agreed personal terms with Jaro but will spend two weeks there to see how he acclimatises with the Finnish conditions.  It is minus-20 degrees Celsius at the moment in Finland, which is a remarkable 50 degree drop in temperature from Trinidad and Tobago.

If the talented 20-year-old attacker can cope, he will kick start an overseas career that has comprised of several unsuccessful trials at more recognisable clubs like Scotland’s Celtic and Portugal’s Sporting Braga.

Jaro escaped relegation from the Finland Premier League by just one point last season and finished 11th from 12 participating teams.

Winchester has certainly been on a hot streak in Trinidad this season. He scored seven of Connection’s 15 Pro League goals and is second among the League’s top marksmen.

Jaro and Connection will hope he sizzles in sub-zero Finland too.
