Condolences to the Woodley family and the Saints fraternity. RIP Luci.  God Bless!!! Fellahs, Luciano was one of the best to come out of the Colleges league. Again like many others, born the wrong time. Luci was an excellent striker. Probably scored more hattricks in college football than anyone. I remember him playing for Saints, with Trevor in goal, Keston, Frankie, Neil Williams, Bobby Marquez, Callender, Jobe and other I can't remember their names at this time. I played against him also. He was deceptively fast and just had an instinct for being in the right position.  When Saints and Belmont clash at any venue, it was people "for so". Luci was also on the youth team for the Benson and Hedges tournament in TT. Luci, God Bless. To Trevor and all the CIC frats, Thanks for all the good memories.

My condolences to the family   :(

When I was in Form 1 ('70) and 2 ('71), we used to walk from school to the grounds to watch the "at home" matches.  I remember one game in particular when Woodley scored a hat trick (in '70 I think).  I left T&T after Form 2 but the memories of our first 11 will aways be one of happy times.

I think we all went hoarse with the cheering.

Travel safe Woodley.

Luciano Woodley was a larger than life figure in Intercol soccer.  I grow up in Tobago and was playng football in high school for Bishop's in th elate 68 - 70 and we all wanted to be Luci Woodley.  Many evenings I would try to get home in time to hear the Saints game on the radio.  Bernard Julien, Ian Bain and Greg Gomez I remember from that team.  That was the era of great intercol football as I remember it.

Condolences to the family and may he rest in peace.

'Bound to score' Woodley is dead
By: Glen Mohammed (Express)


Wednesday, February 6th 2008
 
  (http://www.trinidadexpress.com/shared/images/2008/02/06/s5.jpg)
FLASHBACK: St Mary's College striker Luciano Woodley in his playing days in the Colleges Football League. Woodley died last Friday at the age of 54.

LUCIANO WOODLEY, a goal-scoring machine for St Mary's College in the Colleges Football League in the 1960s and early 70s, is dead.

Woodley, a former president of the Racehorse Owners Association (ROA) and a Port of Spain Alderman, died at his home last Friday after ailing for some time.

The 54-year-old Woodley leaves to mourn his wife Lauren and three children, including the apple of his eye, daughter Leighara.

The funeral service to celebrate the life of Woodley will be held at 10.00 a.m. tomorrow at St Theresa's RC Church, de Verteuil Street, Woodbrook.

Woodley, also known as "Barbie", is best remembered as the prolific Saints striker but he was also a very good athlete, winning from 100 metres to 400 metres while attending Belmont Boys RC and St Mary's.

On the football field, he was referred to as the "hat-trick man", having scored six hat-tricks in the InterCol competition, and he held the record for most goals scored in a single season, netting 34 for St Mary's in 1970.

He played alongside the likes Keston Nancoo, current chairman of the National Carnival Committee, and goalkeeper Trevor Leiba, making the Saints almost unstoppable as they marched to InterCol glory in 1970.

Woodley, who was self-employed having set up his own insurance brokerage firm in St James, was also a football coach.

In 2006 he coached Real Dimension women's football team to success. He also coached Holy Name Convent and St Francois Girls.

US-based T&T and MLS striker Scott Sealey, whom Woodley coached, was considered his protege.

While his first love was always football, the excitement of horse racing took his fancy after his school days. He owned several horses and served on the Trinidad and Tobago Racing Authority (T&TRA) and also the Betting Levy Board (BLB) and took a prominent role in the ROA.

When I saw this news, the name immediately rang a bell, but i couldn't place the face and actually even confused him with someone else...

Now seeing that pic I remember him just from the sweat in the savannah at the top of Marli Street. He used to sweat with Ice picks sometimes too..

De man was big and in his fifties, but had real touches and I have to admit I never knew too much about his history until now..

Also you could tell simply by his demeanor that he commanded alot of respect among his peers..

RIP Woodley.

Hello. My name is Paul Woodley Jr. I am Luciano's cousin. My uncle is John Woodley. I have met him only once as I was a little boy then. I am very sorry to hear about Luciano passing away (and my Uncle too last year). As a matter of fact my father Paul Woodley just received this news a few days ago. We the Woodley family (in the USA) express our sincere condolences to our family back in Trinidad! Me being the eldest son of Paul Woodley would like to reconnect with my cousins (Lucia, Ricardo, Jose, Mario) and or 2nd cousins. I never had the opportunity to really know my family back in Trinidad - I wish I did. Reading articles about Luciano makes me real proud! It seems we lived parallel lives in a way. He a soccer star and me as well back in the day. I'm happy he has affected so many people in a positive way. I feel proud to be a Woodley! Please if you know of Luciano's family personally please forward them this post as me and my brothers and sister (James, Jonathon, Danielle) and of course our father Paul would like to re-connect with our family back in Trinidad.  So much catching up to do!!

P.S. We plan on coming to Trinidad this year (don't know when yet) - I myself have never been but I will!! (-;

Love always to my family back in TT, and Luciano's friends!

Paul Woodley Jr.

"I Love Lucy"
BY HANNIBAL NAJJAR (Guardian Sports Arena)


I HAVE known Luciano Woodley, alias “Lucy”, from our Form-Two days at St. Mary's College (CIC as we are more affectionately known).

Ever since those early days, I took to liking for Lucy. Some of it, a kind of hidden jealousy, and some, just a pure desire to match the expectations that he had set himself as a footballer.

We played football in the "Small Yard" together every lunch time and would compare each other's efforts or goals. Then, we would carry that silent yet, passionate inner "burnings" into the afternoon classroom sessions until we got "down grounds", where we would continue our quest to better each other feats.

We did this throughout out "Giants" and later, "A Colts" years. This trend continued as we were simultaneously called up to the Championship side at 14 years of age each.

Lucy was the younger, having his birthday in December and I, in October. During both our years as playing for the "A" Colts team, we also played for the Championship team.

We won every national age group championship and we were both always competing for most goals at every turn, except in the 1968 team.

I felt, from very early, that I was a better all-round player, while as we aged, I had to succumb to the reality that he was going to be the better goal scorer.

We were both on the championship winning team of 1968 that overpowered QRC's mighty and highly touted team 2-1, with the likes of Rolf Clarke, Roger Mathews, Neil and Larry Springer, Ian Jeffers, Stephen Gomez, Earl Best and others.

Our fortune continued into the Island-wide championship game against St. Benedict's College, where we gave an awesome display with a 4-2 victory.

St. Benedict's themselves were hot favourites to win with the Hackett brothers, Ruben, and others leading their charges. But our team was a superb unit as far as understanding of duties and roles were concerned, and in Intercol, we are indestructible.

Fr. Reginald DeFour was the major organizational force behind our youth development plan and game-day plans, though our senior players would have his ears.

Our team was one that boasted the likes of Steve Waldron, Russell Tesheira, Miguel Hospedales, Ian Bain, Alvin Henderson, Richard Callender, Richard Brathwaite, Jackie Messiah, Wayne Dopson, Michael Cooper, Alex Hamel-Smith, Rupert Wilson, and others.

The best was yet to come when we, along with the outstanding play and leadership of Alvin Henderson, carried the momentum into 1969 under Michael Liang and then later, in that superb year, 1970, under Alvin Corneal.

We were both 17-year-olds in 1970, and after myself playing for Raffie Knowles and the ultra-talented Queen’s Park squad, with the likes of Gordon Husbands, Roger Matthews, Sheldon Gomes, George Romano, Ken Butcher, and others, I was dispatched to Canada to complete my Grade 13 and first-year university studies.

Lucy continued and played one more year for St. Mary's College. I played three years at the championship level and Lucy, four.

Overall, we played five very memorable years together and shared one class, Form Three.

In our never-to-be-forgotten 1970 year, Lucy established a college record by scoring 36 goals and in the process, six hattricks, at least three of them, natural ones. He was the league's leading scorer and I, the runner-up, with 18.

Lucy's year was so great that he was called up for a North team at the adult level and with his usual carefree ways and bold assurance, he scored in his debut game at the King George V Park.

I loved playing alongside Lucy and today, there are memories of him and I together, that would never ever fade in visual clarity or emotional high.

The last time I played alongside Lucy was in 2003 at our annual old boy's CIC-Belmont clash and, as we did all through our college years, we linked up with his patented decoy run and I, my lay-off to him to, yes, score again.

There is no one that I could remember playing alongside that allowed me to enjoy myself or play as well as I did, and I had very good tandems in Alvin Henderson at St. Mary's College, Sheldon Gomes at QPCC, Godfrey Harris at Maple, Martin Bourne at UWI and Maple, Sammy Lewellyn at Essex, Ron Laforest and Sammy Llewellyn at ASL, or anyone elsewhere else that I have been or played.

There are so many things that I could remember about Lucy and none that I would like to forget. The one thing I would further state is that even back then, Lucy was never haughty, boastful, or arrogant, and he always had that meek, sincere, sheepish smile, and possessed a blending personality.

He was, however, just as miserable as all of us were as children growing up, but he was different in that he held his peace longer than we seemed able to, or so I thought. Today, at 54 years of age, I can say that truly, "I love Lucy" and I appreciate him more than I did back then, MUCH MORE!

Lucy is all that every speaker made him out to be when they delivered their eulogies last Thursday morning before he was laid to rest.

In the busy world that we live in today, it is difficult to make the time for each other as we once did so easily. But after speaking with Lucy's wife, Lauren, from my St. Louis home upon learning of his hospitalization, and then, upon learning of his passing, I dialogued with my friends Trevor Leiba, Ian Bain and Alvin Henderson, brother Labib, my wife and family and it was clear that I had to attend my friend's funeral.

My wife Annette, ne Kumar, of almost 28 years, and confidante of, 37, knew what such a person meant to me and she fully encouraged the visit. Naturally, it is always an excitement to visit home as I miss it dearly and so the trip was essentially on.

I then consulted with the principal of my High School (LWCS) over the weekend and with his consent, I purchased a last-minute ticket that Sunday night for departure on Carnival Monday to be at my friend's farewell and celebration of a life well lived.

I am exceedingly happy to have made it and I rejoice now that I was with Lucy's entire family and host of friends, colleagues and well-wishers at his farewell presided by Fr. Girod. As sentimental as it was to be at the occasion, it was made more meaningful since the service was held at my childhood church in Woodbrook, St. Teresa's - the moment was nostalgic.

Most fitting as well, was that very evening, we had our traditional annual CIC-Belmont post-Carnival 22-year rivalry which was then used to further honor Lucy.

The evening was so fitting that the skies shed some of its tears as we prepared to play the great game. A product of both Belmont and CIC, Lucy would have been proud of that occasion which was very well attended by a host of soccer greats including Everald "Gally" Cummings, Alvin Corneal, Lincoln Phillips, Sedley Joseph, Michael Wiley, Brian Rigsby, to mention a few. David Rudder, a former Belmont boy was also in attendance from what I was told - I missed meeting and chatting with him, a personal friend I consider him to be.

The game was very well participated, and St. Mary's overcame Belmont 3-0. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the two thirds that I played. I felt great with the spirit in which everyone conducted themselves, as I was with my performance (I still love my football) despite my week-long illness. I thank God for the privilege of playing yet another game as we honoured my friend, Luciano "Lucy" Woodley.

The occasion was blessed with a pre and post game minutes of silence and later, we were graced with some fine T&T cuisine and fabulous "Old-Time" kaiso music performed by the irresistible, Wayne Dopson, Charla Dore and others.

I submit this brief, but moving, passage in time, with the greatest love and respect for my friend Lucy. I trust that others too, share in this sincere exchange of love for Lucy, for the game, and for what sport and this great game have done for those of us who have played the game of football especially during the eras and periods that we participated - these are times never to be forgotten, and more so, always to be cherished. Friendships are built that will last forever, last beyond the ages; you understand this all to well my friend of the Guardian, Gregory Trujillo.

I just returned from Trinidad to attend Luciano’s funeral.  Have you ever heard someone say a funeral was nice?  Well, it was a wonderful service.  I never heard so much laughter at a funeral.  St. Theresa’s Church was packed. 

There were many old CIC footballers there – Alvin Henderson, Hannibal Najjar, Keston Nancoo, Keith Look Loy, Ken and Wally Butcher, Frankie Stone, Neil Williams, Ian “Charla” Dore, Brian Gent, Murchison Pierre, Wayne Dobson, Gary Almondoz, etc.

The funeral also was attended by numerous past footballers such as Lincoln Phillips, Alvin Corneal, Sedley Joseph, “Gally” Cummings, Wayne Lewis, Ron LaForest, Tony “Chucker” Griffith, Tansley Thompson, Bobby Banfield, Winfield St. Hill, Lenny Alphonso, Desmond “Baby” Headley, Brian Rigsby, etc.

I know this is an old thread (I was notified to consider starting a new one, but I think/hope this is appropriate anyway), which I actually saw months ago, and was I shocked to learn of Woodley’s death. While not a close friend, I competed against Woodley off and on at CIC, but mostly in training, as he (fortunately) was a Juniors runner when I was in Giants. When often ran neck and neck, with Woodley usually edging me out over the last few yards. But we did play soccer together, if I recall correctly, sometimes in CIC “A Colts”, though I never played in the First XI. All of the descriptions of him in this thread fit perfectly with what I remember of the unassuming and humble Luciano Woodley.   
   
I presume most CIC old boys would have kept old school annuals, as I have, but this particular photo was too good to pass up (just in case):

Woodley is second from the left in the front row, next to Hannibal Najjar, on his right.

The best person to name the players is Trevor. I have played against and with Lucy. He was a class guy. Front in glasses is Mark Kendall. To his left is Dr. Alvin Henderson. I know Hannibal in that picture, but I getting old I can't seem to make him out. Keith Lookloy in the middle row.To the extreme right in the back row is probably Murchison Pierre. And Frankie Stone 2nd from left backrow??? Trevor whey yuh? The rest I can't remember

"CiC had ah ah goal scoring machine,de man use to score hattrick at will.. Luciano Woodley he wasn't no flashy dribbler but cudda put de ball in de back ah de net."



Fellas, I trying to confirm some info here.
I spoke to Eric White of the Mucurapo team of 1978. He said he broke Woodley's hatrick record by one. But more than 40 years later, he cannot remember the number of hattricks that he did score. He thinks it is six. But I see the Press saying Woodley scored six so using that logic it should be seven.

I pushing it here. But could anybody confirm from that year if he did break the record and by how much?

Here is a quote from Berris back in 2006

"CiC had ah ah goal scoring machine,de man use to score hattrick at will.. Luciano Woodley he wasn't no flashy dribbler but cudda put de ball in de back ah de net."



Fellas, I trying to confirm some info here.
I spoke to Eric White of the Mucurapo team of 1978. He said he broke Woodley's hatrick record by one. But more than 40 years later, he cannot remember the number of hattricks that he did score. He thinks it is six. But I see the Press saying Woodley scored six so using that logic it should be seven.

I think is 71, that Lucy scored all them hat-tricks. He scored most against Belmont, because they replayed those tied inter-col games all the time. Like the CFL used to pray for a tied game when Belmont played Saints. To be honest vb I can't give a precise count. He scored quite a bit. He even scored a hat trick in Sunday morning football for Leeds the same year and  some people and the newspapers were making a thing about it. he playing too much football, he go get injured. For more info on Luciano you will have to speak with Trevor Leiba or Keith Lookloy.
