Yohance Marshall has played five matches for the T&T team and now he is trying to play his part in securing his first major silverware in local football as he marshals the Central FC defence in the closing stages of the T&T Pro League.
The 28-year-old old former Rochester Rhinos player has been a force in the Central back line since joining the club earlier this season. His understanding of the game, his particular role and his courageous and never say die approach to the game has made him a fixture in Terry Fenwick’s line up.
Team managing director Brent Sancho believes the player could play a key role in the team’s aspirations for a place in next season’s Caribbean club championship and Concacaf Champions League.
“He’s come into the club and fitted right in,” Sancho said. “Obviously he has some experience having played in the US and in Asia and he brings a level of maturity and professionalism with him to Central FC and he’s helping the younger guys around him which is a plus for the club.”
Marshall also played two games with LA Galaxy as well as Chainat FC in Thailand.
Central has brought in the likes of Sean De Silva, Leston Paul, Ataullah Guerra and Willis Plaza, who have all played their parts in the team’s title drive in the late stretch of the season.
