Less than one month after taking over the reigns at T&T Professional Football League club CL Financial San Juan Jabloteh, English-born coach Terry Fenwick has sacked four players.
The players are ex-nationals Nigel “Croc” Pierre, Ansil Elcock, Vernon “Zartie” Bailey and Michael Celestine.
Contacted yesterday, Fenwick confirmed the sacking.
“Yes, unfortunately we have parted ways with a few guys who have served the club well in the past.
“At this point in their careers, I don’t feel they are good enough for my team,” added Fenwick
Fenwick was happy to announce the promotion of youth team players ex-Queen’s Royal College midfielder Jason Devenish, Terryl Elwyn of San Juan Senior Secondary and national Under-20 defender Carlon Murray to the senior team along with the acquisition of and Devaughn Dummette of Guyana.
“I just felt that the time was right to bring in fresh blood and hopefully they would help to take us in the right direction.
“Devenish, Elwyn and Murray have been with the youth teams for a while now and will be given the chance to prove themselves.”
Pierre and current Jabloteh defender Keyeno Thomas were snapped up by ex-Jabloteh coach Ricky Hill at the start of the 2003 season and helped the team to the league title.
However, since the start of the season, Pierre has not been able to re-discover his goalscoring touch as was often left out of the starting team by Michael Grayson, who was the team’s stand-in coach.
Bailey started his career at Jabloteh before moving to Joe Public and then back to Jabloteh before being fired while Celestine came through the youth ranks of Jabloteh.
