T&T Pro League

Aguillera returns to Connection

Romauld Aguillera is W Connection’s latest acquisition this season ahead of a very cumbersome schedule with the CONCACAF Champions’ League Group stage, Digicel Pro League Championship and domestic knockout tournaments ahead of the Coach Stuart Charles Fevrier’s side.

 

“Aguillera was with us before. He is a mature player. He has served us well in the past and we are hoping he can do the same again,” said Fevrier on signing the 30 year old midfielder for the rest of the 2009 season.

“This year we have a lot of football to play, so we are trying to get depth in our squad to deal with all competitions,” explained the St Lucian.

Fevrier is hoping to sign a couple more names to add further depth to his already talented squad—as he is always looking for talents.

Meantime Aguillera is hoping that his most recent move from Pro League newcomers FC South End to his former club W Connection can bear fruits for his future.

“I feel good getting this chance to come back with Connection,” said the Palo Seco resident.

“Stuart (Charles Fevrier) and I had a good understanding while I was here in 2006. We had a good understanding and even after I left, we kept in touch. Coming back to Connection is a good choice for me with the number of competitions they have ahead. I feel that I can do well for the club and myself, especially in the CONCACAF Champions’ League. I’m also hoping that by good performances in the Chanpions’ League I can maybe earn a break abroad to bigger Leagues,” said Aguillera.

Aguillera played for Arima Fire from 2000-2000 before they combined as Caledonia/Arima Fire 2005 where he spent one more season before joining W Connection 2006. In 2007 he moved further south joining United Petrotrin under now assistant coach to Fevrier, Brian Williams where he spent two season and had impressive showing—earning himself a few call-ups with the Trinidad and Tobago National Senior Team. In 2009 joined seedling club FC South End under former United Petrotrin teammate Anthony Rougier who is co-owner and coach of the club.

But in their debut year, FC South End are forced to face the struggles without major sponsorship losing key players Sylvester Teesdale, Lyndon Andrews, Daniel Joseph and Brenton De Leon. And after seven months Aguillera soon followed the exit path.

“It was due to financial problems that FC SouthEnd suffered to cover even salaries,” said Aguillera. “South End is not a bad club. It had a lot of future to it. But it wasn’t possible for me to stay at the club and just as many other players I had to pull out.”

Aguillera now reunites with coach Brian Williams and trainer Wayne Lawson (both former technical staff with United Petrotrin FC) at the Savonnetta Boys.
