Former Trinidad and Tobago striker and Neal and Massy Caledonia AIA player Nigel Pierre has returned to his former Club, B Mobile Joe Public after three years away from the Macoya based team.
Speaking with ‘ttproleague.com’ Technical Director of the Club Keith Lookloy confirmed signing Pierre along with a couple of additions to his 2006 Pro League winning team.
“We have signed on a couple of experienced players that would do well for us this season,” he said.
“We now have with us striker Nigel Pierre, Guyanese midfielder Kayode Mc Kinnon formerly of North East Stars and goalkeeper Shurland Awai from Superstar Rangers. They have all signed on with us and this is great. Both Pierre and Mc Kinnon have received two year contracts while Awai is with us on a one year agreement,” he confirmed.
Speaking with ‘ttproleague.com’ the 27 year old Pierre said his main focus on returning to Joe Public is to regain his past form and hopefully get back on the national team, “There is no place like home. This is where I have spent most of my playing days and I have always considered Joe Public my home,” said the striker.
“While I was out of Joe Public things didn’t go as planned. It was difficult for me and this is my main reason for returning to Joe Public. I hope to reignite the form that everyone has known me for. I don’t here my name any more. The public is not aware of me and this is what I want to change. I want to return to my goal scoring form and re-establish myself on the national team,” ended Pierre.
Mr. Lookloy went on to explain his decision to sign the players saying, “Nigel has indicated to us his desire to return to the National team therefore his reason for rejoining us. His entire history is on goal scoring and we believe he still has the talent.”
“Mc Kinnon on the other hand is a very experienced midfielder and has a lot of experience in the Pro League. He has also done well for Guyana in the recent Digicel Cup and I believe he can do well in the middle with midfielder Dale Saunders,” explained Lookloy.
According to Lookloy goal keeper Awai would team up with their Colombian goal keeper Alejandro Figeroa. As the other Joe Public goal keeper Jamaican Jacameno Barrett is on loan to a Jamaican Premiere League Club and is expected to rejoin the 2006 Pro League Champions at the end of March.
It was also revealed by the Technical Director that former national under-17 World Cup and Joe Public midfielder Terrance Mc Allister now 22 years old has signed on for another year with the ‘Eastern Lions’.
