W Connection defender Alvin Jones has his sights set on returning to the national senior team this year. The 20-year-old earned his first call up to the senior team last year during the semi-final round of the Caribbean Cup and has proven to be one of the bright young defenders in local football at this time.

Reflecting on last year, Jones says he intends to step up his game this year.

“Last year for me was a great year in my life. 2014 was a stepping stone. Getting into the senior team was one of the best things to happen to date in my life. It gave me more confidence as a player and a person, and opened my eyes up to international football. I’m constantly working on improving my game and putting out my best for W Connection.

I know there are opportunities that will come but I have to remain focused. My aim is to get back into the national senior team this year. We have the Gold Cup and the World Cup qualifiers coming up and I’d love to be part of the squad,” Jones said.

“At club level I want to help W Connection win the League again and get back into the running for the Concacaf Champions League. I’ve had some trials in Europe last year and hopefully this year something can work out for me as I try to reach the highest level possible."
