Ranjitsingh - Awarded All-Freshman Atlantic Sun Team

Five Bears Earn A-Sun Postseason Awards

MACON, Ga. – Five members of the Mercer men’s soccer team received Atlantic Sun postseason honors as announced on Monday morning by the league office after voting conducted by the nine conference head coaches.

Junior Josh Shutter was voted onto the first team, classmate Joey Heavner landed a spot on the second team and freshmen Ashani Samuels, Carl-Oscar Andersson and Greg Ranjitsingh were all named to the All-Freshman squad.

Mercer's five overall selections were tied for the second-most in the conference, trailing only FGCU who had seven players receive All-Conference recognition. Another sign of the program’s growth under head coach Brad Ruzzo, the Bears five All-Freshman selections over the past two seasons are the most of any team in the A-Sun Conference.

Stetson junior midfielder Jonathan Mendoza won the A-Sun Player of the Year while classmate Luis Ocejo won the A-Sun Defensive Player of the Year. FGCU forward Xavier Silva and head coach Bob Butehorn won the A-Sun Freshman of the Year and Coach of the Year, respectively.

For Shutter, the selection marks his second A-Sun postseason award after earning a spot on the All-Conference second team last season. A 2011 Preseason All-Atlantic Sun Team selection, the Sinking Spring, Pa. native has appeared and started in 16 games for the Bears this season, setting career-highs in points (9) and goals (3). The 6-2 center back starred in Mercer’s 2-0 over Appalachian State on September 4, scoring the game-winning goal on a penalty kick and assisting on the second goal.

For Heavner, the All-Conference second team honor is his second A-Sun postseason award in as many days, as he was also named to the inaugural Men’s Soccer Academic All-Conference team. The Landisville, Pa. native is tied for second on the squad with nine points on one goal and seven assists. Heavner currently ranks tied for first in the A-Sun and 22nd in the nation with seven assists and scored his lone goal of the season in a 2-1 win over Belmont on October 30.

Samuels, Andersson and Ranjitsingh were all selected to the All-Freshman team, giving the Orange and Black multiple selections on the All-Rookie team in back-to-back seasons.

Samuels has played in 15 games, including 13 starts, and has four points on two goals this season. Andersson has appeared and started in all 18 games this season for Mercer and tallied seven points on one goal and five assists. Ranjitsingh has played every minute in goal this season for the Bears and finished tied for first in the A-Sun with seven shutouts and second in the league with a 1.07 goals against average.

Mercer returns to the field on Wednesday evening when it takes on Lipscomb in the first round of the Atlantic Sun Championship. Game time is scheduled for 4 p.m. at Summers-Taylor Stadium on the campus of East Tennessee State University.

His highlight reel naturally shows a lot of positives.  I would love to watch him in a few games to see these things live.  From the video he seem to possess great positional awareness, fearlessness when rushing out to collect a ball, strong punch out, doesn't parry ball back into dangerous positions, strong reflexes and agility.  He certainly could be one to compete for the spot on eligible national teams.

Greg Ranjitsingh signs with Louisville City FC.
Lousivillecityfc.com


LOUISVILLE, Kentucky (March 26th, 2015)­­ — Louisville City FC, the new professional soccer team that will kick off its inaugural season campaign on March 28th at Louisville Slugger Field, announced three more acquisitions to the club. Goalkeeper Greg Ranjitsingh, English forward, Cameron Lancaster and Serbian forward Ilija Ilic.

Lancaster started his career in the Tottenham Hotspur Academy and made his debut for the English Premier League team under former Spurs head coach, Harry Redknapp. In 2014 the 6-foot striker went on-loan to Stevenage where he connected on a wonder goal from 40-yards out. Lancaster went on to St. Albans City for another loan stint. He made for appearances and scored twice for the Saints.

While on trial with Louisville City FC, the 22-year-old wasted no time displaying his talents. In the club’s first friendly he broke a 2-2 draw in the 89th minute with a superb strike to give his team the 3-2 win over Indiana University.

“We invited Cameron to come on trial with us last month,” head coach James O’Connor said. “It was obvious within the first few days of training that he had great potential. He has the ability to score a lot of goals for us this season.”

Ilic was a former teammate of Louisville City midfielder Niall McCabe at Young Harris College. Ilic left Young Harris holding the school record for most points in a season. In 2014 he was voted the NCAA Division 2 Player of the Year, finishing second in all of NCAA Division II in goals scored with 27.

The 6-foot-2 Belgrade, Serbia native had also been on trial with the club and has been able to show how his powerful right boot can help Louisville City. The 23-year-old scored a goal and was responsible for another in LCFC’s 5-0 win over Lindsey-Wilson.

“Ilija is another player that we have been fortunate to sign,” O’Connor said. “He has a strong right foot that is going to lead to many goals for us. He was constantly filling the stat sheet at Young Harris, and we now that we have seen what he can do first hand, we are thrilled to have him on board.”

Ranjitsingh is a 22-year-old from Pickering, Ontario. In his four years as the starting goalkeeper at Mercer University, Ranjitsingh led the conference in many statistical categories including save percentage and average goals allowed. He finished his collegiate career as one of the top keepers in the country. In one preseason game with Louisville, Ranjitsingh registered a clean sheet in a 5-0 win over Lindsey-Wilson.

“We invited Greg to come on-loan to us a few weeks ago,” O’Connor said. “During his time with us he proved that he has the skills to be a quality goalkeeper. Obviously we are excited to have gotten Greg here and thrilled to have him here in Louisville.”

Lancaster, Ilic, Ranjitsingh and the rest of the Louisville City FC squad continue their preparation for the club’s inaugural season. Season tickets are still available and can be purchased by visiting LouisvilleCityFC.com or by calling 502-384-8799. Ticket packages include 15 matches – 14 USL PRO regular season home games and one additional fixture (friendlies, Open Cup matches, etc.).

The full schedule is available online at LousivilleCityFC.com/schedule.

Louisville City FC is a professional soccer team founded in 2014 and will begin its first season in USL in March, 2015. The United Soccer League was founded in 2010 and has expanded to 24 teams for the 2015 season. Louisville City FC will play all home matches at Louisville Slugger Field in downtown Louisville.

Title: Man of the Match: SIUE vs Louisville City FC
Post by: Tallman on April 09, 2015, 01:55:40 PM
SIUE could have converted on a few more chances if not for the goal keeping of Greg Ranjitsingh. The first year pro out of Mercer was called upon to make several saves throughout the match and he did not disappoint.

As early as the 11th minute of the contest, Ranjitsingh, making his first start since the friendly versus Lindsey-Wilson, stood tall as the Cougars nearly turned a costly Louisville City turnover into the games opening goal.

The Louisville City FC keeper was forced to make another save in the 18th minute, but it was near the end of the first half that he was really tested. Ranjitsingh did just enough to get a glove on it and allow his defender, Conor Shanosky, to get the ball out of danger.

In an effort to get the game in, halftime was cut short and the players quickly returned to the pitch for the second half. Ranjitsingh was immediately tested again and made the save of the game in the 53rd minute. The 22-year-old was forced to reach all the way to his right to corral the ball and maintain the clean sheet.

In goalies, Louisville City has pair of keepers
By Jonathan Lintner (The Courier-Journal)


Already one of the best defensive teams in the United Soccer Leagues, Louisville City FC flexed its muscle in Wednesday's 1-0 U.S. Open Cup win over Lansing United.

Backup keeper Greg Ranjitsingh, a four-year standout at Mercer University, posted his second clean sheet in as many appearances for the first-year franchise, the other coming during a preseason game against Lindsey Wilson College.

Though Ranjitsingh hasn't appeared in a regular-season USL match -- and likely won't again when Louisville City FC plays at 8:30 p.m. Sunday against rival Saint Louis FC -- he's added depth to a unit with four shutouts in eight games with starter Scott Goodwin between the posts.

"Greg is someone who we really like," said coach James O'Connor. "He works really hard and he's got tremendous potential. We're really excited about Greg as a prospect. It's great that we have such good keepers in Greg and Scott. And Greg will definitely push Scott and he can learn a lot from Scott because Scott's and excellent keeper."

Goodwin opened the season with a shutout of Saint Louis back on March 28. The clubs, in addition to Sunday's game on the road, play again May 30 at Louisville Slugger Field, continuing a rivalry dubbed "The King's Cup."

While Louisville (4-1-3) has the USL's best goal differential -- 14 scored to just four allowed -- O'Connor's team is still seeking its first win, having lost once and drawn in two other matches.

Saint Louis (3-3-1) enters the week having dropped a 2-1 decision to Toronto FC II in its last USL outing.

LOUISVILLE CITY FC vs ORLANDO CITY FC

GREG RANJITSINGH (LOUISVILLE CITY FC)

Record Crowd Sees Louisville City Take Down Orlando City 3-1

Louisville, KY (August 25, 2015) — An historic night at Louisville Slugger Field was made even more special with the record crowd of 9,434 fans saw the home side come away with a 3-1 victory of Major League Soccer’s Orlando City SC.

Lou City threatened early with some great chances to draw first blood. Captain Matthew Fondy challenged the Orlando backline all night and got his first real chance coming in the in the 34th minute. Fondy would find the ball and get off a shot to the left of the keeper, only to be corralled then saved by Orlando’s Earl Edwards.

Just a minute later, Fondy would weave through three defenders to get off a shot on a tough angle. The ball rifled past Edwards, finding the back of the net and sent the crowd into a frenzy.

That would be all the scoring the first half would see, but the second half would tell a different story. Many new faces entered the field for the final 45 minutes, including Greg Ranjitsingh who made his Slugger Field debut.

Orlando would have a great chance to level things in the 47th minute brushing by multiple Lou City defenders only to find his shot go wide of the post and out for a goal kick.

Despite the visitors pushing for an equalizer, Juan Guzman would double the Louisville lead in the 50th minute. The midfielder would pressure a bad handle by Orlando’s backline, get a touch on the ball, and fire a shot  for Lou City’s second goal on the night.

Orlando would come right back in the 66th minute with a goal of their own by Danny Mwanga, who was able to cross through two defenders and get off a solid shot beating Ranjitsingh to the left, bringing the score to 2-1.

Orlando would come close to equalizing in the 71st minute when a strong cross by the Lions would be tipped out by Ranjitsingh only to have another shot come right back into the keeper’s hands then cleared away to end the threat.

Louisville’s final goal of the night would come from Charlie Adams in the 78th minute. Louisville benefited from a foul and a quick restart. Charlie Adams attempted to maneuver around a defender, only to see Edwards meet him near the six-yard-box. The two nearly collided, forcing Edwards to spill the ball  and allowing Adams to deliver the finishing blow.

As the final whistle blew, Louisville City would defeat the Orlando 3-1.

Fans could tell this would be a special night as the crowd began to fill the stands, Louisville Mayor Greg Fisher, former USL President Tim Holt, Brek Shea, and dozens of other MLS talents made it a star-studded affair.

After an incredible showing by the team in their 3-1 victory over Orlando, this was both a record setting attendance night and monumental victory for the club. Louisville City will be back in USL play this Saturday night at home versus the Pittsburgh Riverhounds as the race for playoff positioning is in full swing, be sure you get your tickets at www.louisvillecityfc.com/tickets.

Ranjitsingh’s clean sheets earns Team of the Week selection
louisvillecityfc.com


May 10, 2016

In just 197 minutes of regular season action, Louisville City FC goalkeeper Greg Ranjitsingh has allowed just one goal — a penalty kick in his first minute of action. For his services to the table-topping LouCity (5-1-2, 17 points), Ranjitsingh has been named to the USL Team of the Week as goalkeeper for Week 7, the league announced on Tuesday.

“It’s great to receive the individual honor,” Ranjitsingh said. “The shutouts are a team effort. That’s never something I’ll take credit for, because it takes 11 guys to do their jobs well to get that result. i couldn’t be happier with how the team is playing right now.”

The 6-foot-2 shotstopper sealed a scoreless draw at Bethlehem Steel last Sunday before taking all three points at Toronto FC II on Wednesday via a 2-0 victory. All in all, Ranjitsingh has concreted five points in three matches since stepping into goal.

Ranjitsingh is Louisville City’s seventh Team of the Week selection in 2016. He joins Scott Goodwin, who earned Team of the Week in Week 1, as a LouCity goalkeeper to earn the honor.

In his first start of the 2016 season, Ranjitsingh came up huge early on, after a Steel through ball snuck past the LouCity back four. Ranjitsingh came off his line in a diving effort to deny Bethlehem an early goal. The keeper came up big again in the 90th minute after a softly struck Bethlehem shot lingered around the penalty area before Ranjitsingh picked it up and ended any chance of a Steel goal.

In his hometown of Toronto, Ranjitsingh came up huge in the 36th minute with a diving save off of a TFC II free kick. He sprawled to his right and clutched the well-placed shot.

In his rookie season, Ranjitsingh started one regular season match against the Charleston Battery on September 12. Ranjitsingh got his first start for Louisville City on May 20 versus Lansing United in the second round of the U.S. Open Cup.

The Canadian out of Mercer University made several key saves to preserve the clean sheet and help Louisville City FC advance with a 1-0 win. The goalkeeper played in the second half of Louisville City’s 3-1 win over Orlando City SC on August 25, and allowed just one goal.

Ranjitsingh stands tall in LouCity goal
By Caitlin Ladd (louisvillecityfc.com)


Saturday’s game Kings’ Cup match against Saint Louis ended in Ranjitsingh’s third consecutive shutout of the season.

Incidentally, these past three games have provided Ranjitsingh with the opportunity — to test his year-plus of training as Louisville City’s No. 2 keeper — on the field after playing a just one regular season game last season, which ended in a 2-0 loss to Charleston Battery. He featured in one half of a friendly against MLS-side Orlando City SC, and the U.S. Open Cup game LouCity played against Lansing United.

“Last year, I was the backup to Scott Goodwin and Scott’s a great goalkeeper,” Ranjitsingh said. “In training it’s always competitive where you push each other. I think just having that kind of environment to train (in) every day, when you know you have people pushing each other, you get better.”

In addition to more regular season game time, Saturday’s game was also the first home start for Ranjitsingh. The fans played a role in his excitement and Ranjitsingh joked that his voice was almost gone because he had to shout over the crowds for his defenders to hear him.

When asked how he felt about starting, Ranjitsingh lit up.

“(It was) amazing,” Ranjitsingh said. “Last year I got a little test in exhibition versus Orlando, but to have a season game and to start my first game at Slugger, it was great. The environment that they have here, all the fans behind us, it’s awesome to play.”

For Ranjitsingh, saves seem to add even more to the atmosphere of the game and the ambiance that Slugger provides, especially the back-to-back saves he achieved at Saturday’s game.

“It’s great how after a save, you get all pumped up,” Ranjitsingh said. “Sometimes it happens during the game, you don’t get much to do and late in the game, 85th, 86th (minute), you have to come up and help out the team. That’s what it’s like to be a goalkeeper and I was just pumped to be able to help the team out.”

Despite all of the excitement surrounding the three shutout streak — and a seventh consecutive unbeaten match from LouCity — Ranjitsingh refused to take credit, insisting that it’s a team effort. He thinks his teammates are doing a great job by minimizing who gets past the defense and what he’s forced to deal with when that happens.

“Ultimately, it’s just that one moment,” Ranjitsingh said. “You have to come up big and no matter if it’s a busy game or not you just have to be ready for it.”

Next up for Ranjitsingh and LouCity, is the 2016 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup second-round match on Wednesday against Detroit City FC at Bellarmine University.

So if he is a Trini, what we waiting on? Hart lived in Canada so I hope he has a good reason for not selecting him, because Jan Michael makes me really nervous.

First of all, I want to say that the GK pool in the U.S. is superior to Trinidad.  Just taake a look at the MLS, and you'll see that the GK standard is better than the overal standard of play.  America is blessed with high GK talent because of the nature of the sports they play that all demand hand to eye coordination and catching:  American football, baseball, lacrosse, basketball.  Secondly, the USL is not a bad league, although it has been marred by a split into two competing leagues.   This guy can't be any worse off than the options we currently have.  The reports have been good, and now Hart maybe needs to scout him some more.  We have two GKs in the setup that have not been convincing in their displays recently, and they're not going to get much better; they're aging.

Deserve a call up, 5 clean sheet this season already. Nobody eh saying he should get pick to be we number one, but at least training with de squad because we short in this area. Phillip and Glenroy eh good, especially Glenroy.

Hyland play one game all season for Genk and was making de national team all year, same for Hoyte.

The man could at least get a look... There is a dearth of quality keepers and we can't afford to leave any stone unturned. Andre Boucaud was neglected for many years because he was playing in the lower leagues. He still plays in the lower leagues, but Hart took a chance and now he is a vital player in our midfield. Greg obviously has potential and is performing well for his club... If we have another friendly before Qualifiers, it won't hurt to give him a call up.

I liking the idea of pulling him in, but might be a slight problem..he is their #1 goalie, they in 1st place, their season wrapping up end of sept, then possibly playoffs. They might not want to let him go (or he come/come late). However, if the coaches could take a trip and observe his training and play in advance, might serve us well. Camp wouldn't be as critical to him, if he's in form.

Points taken but with a camp he can get to bond with the players, as he stated in the vid how he feels comfortable during games knowing the ability and strengths of his defenders. A camp will give him the benefit of getting to know our players, our style of play, etc. Not sure if it will happen before of next set of qualifiers but it will be good if he can have a scout watching him in action though.

Post by: andre samuel on July 16, 2016, 08:00:25 AM
I dont think that it is desperation, but I get the impression that Hart has seen him and doesnt think he would sufficiently challenge what we already have.

He should have already been with the squad, especially with the run of friendlies that we had last month.  It would be very difficult for a new keeper to get a run in our squad during the Hex.

I like the fact that he's young.  But in the absence of  Jan-Williams, Hart took Glenroy Samuel and Adrian Foncette, and that to me sends a clear message.

After Jan, we in some trouble.  I actually rate Glenroy as our next best. 

Not sure if this was answered before, but has Ramjitsingh made public an interest in playing for us?

Title: Re: Greg Ranjitsingh Thread

At least one of his parents advocates on here for his inclusion so I would make a leap and say yes he is interested.
See below from 4 years ago. I don't think anything has changed since then... could be wrong


That is not true....McComie said that there's a lack of interest in the Goalkeeper department....if that's the case they need to contact Greg Ranjitsingh.

Hart will call him allyuh doh worry.  Nobody in T&T disillusioned enough to believe the pro league is a higher level of football than where Greg plying his trade.  And with all the clean sheets he is amassing while his league is active, it only makes sense to have a look.  I will not pronounce him better than anyone until we see what he does in our setup but I like what he's doing so far.
Title: Re: Greg Ranjitsingh Thread
Post by: Tenorsaw on August 04, 2016, 07:55:50 AM
Bottom line:  The GK stock in Trinidad is not a rich one; we've been recycling the same individuals and there's only one GK that's up to international standard.  Marvin Philip is weak on cross balls and does not inspire confidence in his back line, as next in line.  That league is better organized and probably of a higher standard than the Pro League, with greater depth and quality at the GK position.  It would not hurt to have a closer look at this youth, especially considering the season he's having.

Yes Birchall played in a friendly against Bermuda and Tony Warner debuted in a warm up against Iceland... The difference in those two situations and this one is we had capable players to fill their respective positions at that time. The ProLeague is in preseason with our keepers getting little to no competitive action. Our number one, Jan is still recovering from injury and I doubt will be ready for Guatemala...

I watched Greg play Redbulls on Friday via Youtube but was disappointed. His decision making was poor, his clearances were suspect with either feet. He needs to work on his feet, definitely unable to be a sweeper keeper at this time. One positive he was brave in claiming balls in the air and coming off his line.

Hart is right to to keep an eye on him but he is not ready for a call up.

It'a the 3Rd or 4th time I saw him play. You raise a good point though because I was much more positive on him before this game. He may have had a difficult outing because of the pressure of #1 vs. #2 . Regardless, footskills must improve as his distribution was limited.

I watched the game and saying he was poor in clearances is an over exaggeration... Neither keepers we have are clearing balls from the box at a higher level.. Nor are their foot skills superior... I would say all are on par, Marvin is better at penalties, but I've only seen Greg face one..

Greg is more confident and competent in the air and off his line... He deserves a shot in a friendly... We have nothing to lose...

Greg is more confident and competent in the air and off his line... He deserves a shot in a friendly... We have nothing to lose...
Yea a friendly might be the best test, but they're thin on the ground (typically, not recently) and we have to use our friendlies to prep us for the wc qualifiers and get team practice.

Louisville’s Ranjitsingh Earns First Call-Up for Soca Warriors

http://www.uslsoccer.com/news_article/show/690392?referrer_id=2333971


LOUISVILE, Ky. – Louisville City FC goalkeeper Greg Ranjitsingh has been named to the Trinidad & Tobago squad for the country’s upcoming CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying contests early next month. Ranjitsingh’s call-up is the first of his career for the Soca Warriors, as they prepare to face Guatemala and the United States in their final two games of the penultimate stage of qualifying.

"I've been working toward this my whole life training and trying to improve myself," said Ranjitsingh, a native of Canada who qualifies to play for Trinidad & Tobago through his father.. "On my birth certificate it doesn't say it, but I grew up in a Trinidad house. That was the culture – the food, everything – and it's so close to my heart. It's great to be able to represent the country."

While with the national team, Ranjitsingh will miss just one USL game for Louisville, the club's Sept. 3 contest at FC Montreal. In his second season with the club, Ranjitsingh has posted a 0.90 goals against average and .707 save percentage this season, helping Louisville clinch a playoff spot with five games left in the regular season.

"It's fantastic for Greg and speaks volumes about the work Thabane Sutu is doing with our goalkeepers," said Louisville City FC Head Coach James O'Connor. "We can all be very proud of the work we are doing here, as it's a fantastic achievement to have developed a player to the international level in 18 months."

Ranjitsingh signed with Louisville in 2015 as a rookie out of Division Mercer University in Macon, Ga. He took over the starting role for the USL club in May, opening with a string of five clean sheets, and has remained in goal ever since.

Trinidad & Tobago will host Guatemala at Hasely Crawford Stadium, Port of Spain on Friday, Sept. 2 before closing out the stage by facing the United States at EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Fla. on Tuesday, Sept. 6.

The Soca Warriors currently lead Group C with 10 points, with the United States sitting with 7 and Guatemala with 6. A win or draw against Guatemala would ensure the side advances to the final stage of CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying.

Frico, yuh cyah treat GK substitution in the same or similar manner as replacing other players. Also, although the importance of the US match is presently unknown, it is still a WC qualifier. As such, it merits a professional disposition and approach from minute 1 through the final whistle. Nothing you have stated treats or recognizes the occasion for what it is.

Ranjitsingh excited at Soca Warriors call-up.
By JELANI BECKLES (Newsday).


NEWLY selected national goalkeeper Greg Ranjitsingh is excited to be part of the Soca Warriors squad for tomorrow’s crucial 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Guatemala.

Ranjitsingh, born in Canada to a Trinidadian father, has been included in the 24-man squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Guatemala and USA.

Trinidad and Tobago will play Guatemala at the Hasely Crawford Stadium from 7.06 pm tomorrow before travelling to Jacksonville, Florida where they will tackle USA on Tuesday.

A draw against Guatemala tomorrow will earn TT a spot in the final round of qualifying.

Ranjitsingh is looking forward to the experience of representing TT . He said, “it means a lot especially since my father was born here. I am excited to be able to represent his country because it’s really close to my heart and it’s something that my whole family would be proud of.” Ranjitsingh plays for Louisville City FC in the United Soccer League where he was scouted by the national team led by coach Stephen Hart.

“Coach Hart reached out to me a couple months ago saying that he has been watching me and he had some scouts watching me play. I knew if I kept playing at the level I was back at my club that eventually things would fall into place so I am definitely excited to get the call up and looking forward to the games.” The goalkeeper explained that he was fortunate to get a lot of first team action following the suspension of the club’s first choice goalkeeper.

“Our (first team) goalkeeper had a red card and a suspension and I stepped in and did well. The coach decided to keep me in and I have held on to the starting spot since then.” Ranjitsingh is happy the whole squad is now together and said the team is full of quality. “It is good that the whole squad is together here in Trinidad now. All the guys are in from overseas along with the local guys. It has been great to integrate with the guys and build some chemistry and I think the squad is looking good with a lot of quality and I am happy to be part of it.” Midfielder Kevin Molino said the team is going into tomorrow’s contest with an aim to seal a place in the final round of qualifying.

Molino stated, “first and foremost we are not going to take the game lightly. We have a job to finish and we need to go out there and work hard and continue sticking together as a team and build on the last performance.

We need to keep going and fight to the very end.”

Ranjitsingh finds certainty in chance
By Nicholas Murray (USLsoccer.com)


What if Louisville City FC goalkeeper Scott Goodwin doesn’t get sent off against the Pittsburgh Riverhounds on April 22?

What if backup goalkeeper Greg Ranjitsingh doesn’t come in and record a shutout the next game against Bethlehem Steel FC?

What if Ranjitsingh doesn’t give up a goal in the USL in May, recording five consecutive shutouts, effectively making the starting position his own?

What if?

“I felt like I was always ready to play, you know?” Ranjitsingh said on Monday while with the Trinidad & Tobago National Team at EverBank Stadium. “It was just between me and Scott [Goodwin], and he started the inaugural season for Louisville City and he got the starting nod at the beginning of this season, but for me, I always felt I was ready for the start and I was capable, and when the opportunity presented I just took it and ran with it.”

What if Trinidad & Tobago Coach Stephen Hart hadn’t previously led Canada’s National Team?

What if he’d not been aware of the kid with the Trinidadian parents growing up in Brampton, Ontario?

What if he’d not sent scouts out to watch Ranjitsingh in depth after T&T starter Jan-Michael Williams suffered a rotator cuff injury in March?

What if?

“I just thought bring him in, see how he fits in with everybody, see how he does, and he can fight like everyone else for a place,” said Hart on Monday. “He’s been very good. He fits in nicely, and he seems to just roll in. He’s trained well. I’m impressed with how he’s done, and so has our goalkeeping coach.”

It’s sometimes surprising how a chain of events can unfold. Ranjitsingh had made only one appearance for Louisville in his rookie season, and was thrust into duty thanks to Goodwin’s red card and subsequent suspension in a 2-2 draw with Pittsburgh.

The ensuing chain of events has left the native of a Trinidad & Tobago household in Brampton, Ontario on the verge of a first international appearance at any level on Tuesday night against the United States in World Cup Qualifying.

That in turn says something about the perseverance Ranjitsingh has shown to make it this far. One of the last signings to Louisville’s squad last season after playing collegiately at Mercer, the 23-year-old has become one of the top performers between the sticks in the league with a 0.86 goals-against average and .721 save percentage.

After receiving the call to notify him of his selection to the Soca Warriors, word quickly spread throughout the family, most importantly to his father, who had remained true to his heritage after immigrating to Canada when he was 18 years old.

“I know my dad’s extra excited just because I get to represent the country he was born in,” Ranjitsingh said. “Growing up he really instilled the Trinidadian culture in the household. When I’d wake up in the morning it would be soca or reggae music, and the food that we eat would be some Trini food like roti or curried chicken, stuff like that.

“I was surrounded by Trini accents.”

The same could be said of Friday night, when Ranjitsingh took in the atmosphere at Hazley Crawford Stadium as Trinidad & Tobago clinched a place in final stage of World Cup Qualifying - The Hex.

“Although I wasn’t on the field I felt like the whole country was behind us, the atmosphere was great,” Ranjitsingh said. “This is such a big interest in Trinidad, we have the full support of the whole country behind us when we’re playing.”

So, what if Tuesday brings that first appearance on the international stage?

“I mean, it would be one of the biggest accomplishments I’ve ever had in my entire life,” said Ranjitsingh. “It’s just something I’ve been working toward my whole life, playing at the highest level. The first step was getting the call to camp, and then I’m trying just get my first cap. I’m working hard like the rest of these guys, and if coach calls on me, whenever the opportunity happens, I’ll be ready.”

What if?

Louisville City FC signs Goalkeeper Ranjitsingh for 2017
By Jonathan Lintner (louisvillecityfc.com)


Louisville City FC has agreed to a new contract with one of the United Soccer League's top goalkeepers for the 2017 campaign.

Pickering, Ontario, native Greg Ranjitsingh will return for a third year with the club after taking over the starting job midway through last season. On his way to allowing just 0.83 goals per game, the 23-year-old also experienced LouCity's first full international call up.

Terms of Ranjitsingh's deal were not disclosed.

"I'm really happy to sign and be part of the team in the coming year," Ranjitsingh said. "I'm excited to play in front of the fans again and hopefully bring a championship and a trophy to the city."

Ranjitsingh is the 12th player back from LouCity's 2016 team that advanced to the USL's Eastern Conference Final. He joins Tim Dobrowolski in a goalkeeping corps that will also benefit from the return of most key defensive pieces.

Ranjitsingh, a product of Division I Mercer University, figures to lead the competition for playing time at his position. His 72.5 save percentage ranked among the USL's best. Combined with his 6-foot-2, 193-pound frame, Ranjitsingh earned a chance to train in September with his father's native national team, Trinidad and Tobago, during World Cup qualifying.

"I'm really pleased to get Greg back on board," O'Connor said. "The way he's developed since he got here has been really impressive."

Ranjitsingh signed with LouCity as a rookie and learned under Scott Goodwin, who starred for the club during its inaugural, 2015 season. When Goodwin was sent off during a game last April, Ranjitsingh took over between the posts and held the job from there, posting clean sheets in his first five starts.

"For 2017, I just hope we keep building off the previous years," Ranjitsingh said. "Being here since the inaugural, Louisville City is a club that has grown ever since. I expect to have more success."

Ranjitsingh left LouCity's Oct. 16 playoff loss to the New York Red Bulls II with a groin strain that he has continued to heal while home in Canada. The keeper said he's rehabbing at a local gym, "and I think I'll be at full strength in the next couple of weeks -- for sure by the preseason."

In addition to Ranjitsingh and Dobrowolski, LouCity currently has under contract for next year multiple defenders (Kyle Smith, Sean Reynolds, Tarek Morad and Paco Craig); midfielders (Guy Abend, Niall McCabe, Mark-Anthony Kaye and Paolo DelPiccolo); as well as forwards (Cameron Lancaster and Ilija Ilic).

Ranjitsingh signs new.
By Shaun Fuentes (Guardian).


Louisville City FC’s starting goalkeeper Greg Ranjitsingh has accepted a new contract to return next year, according to an announcement from the club Tuesday.

Ranjitsingh, 23, who was recently in the T&T senior team squad, took over midway through last season for Scott Goodwin, who ultimately left the team to enrol in Harvard Medical School. Ranjitsingh allowed fewer than one goal per game, playing a key role in Louisville City’s run to the United Soccer League semifinals.

“I’m really happy to sign and be part of the team in the coming year,” Ranjitsingh said in a statement. “I’m excited to play in front of the fans again and hopefully bring a championship and a trophy to the city.”

LouCity coach James O’Connor said, “I’m really pleased to get Greg back on board. The way he’s developed since he got here has been really impressive.”

Ranjitsingh becomes the 12th player the club has confirmed will return from this year’s team, including fellow goalkeeper Tim Dobrowolski.

T&T’s other three goalkeepers are Jan Michael Williams, Marvin Phillip and Adrian Foncette.

USL Top Five – Goalkeepers to Watch (http://www.uslsoccer.com/news_article/show/771808)

As has been seen time and again, all it can take for a standout goalkeeper to come to the fore is an opening. Louisville City FC’s Greg Ranjitsingh was the latest entry in that list as a suspension to City starting goalkeeper Scott Goodwin gave him a chance, and the Brampton, Ontario native did the rest. Ranjitsingh recorded shutouts in his first five games for Louisville, earning the starting spot for good, and enters this year looking to build on his success.

With expectations as high as they are in Louisville after back-to-back Eastern Conference Final appearances, the 23-year-old will be aiming to repeat his 2016 performance that saw him post a 0.74 goals-against average and .759 save percentage. If he does, another look from the Trinidad & Tobago National Team could come sooner rather than later.
Title: Ranjitsingh back in goal for Louisville City

Ranjitsingh back in goal for Louisville City
By Tate McGarvey and Jonathan Lintner (louisvillecityfc.com)


Louisville City FC coach James O’Connor admitted that when it came to Greg Ranjitsingh’s return to the starting lineup Wednesday night, “I didn’t think he had too much to do.”

Consider it a mostly successful 90 minutes between the posts for the goalkeeper, who made his first appearance since the March 25 USL opener. LouCity went on to fall 1-0 to to FC Cincinnati in Ranjitsingh’s latest spell on the pitch, but he was credited with four saves and punched out two more chances in the Third Round U.S. Open Cup game at Nippert Stadium.

“I thought he made an important save for us in the first half, so I was pleased for him,” O’Connor said.

Ranjitsingh, who has also been called up at the International level for Trinidad and Tobago, tipped a 79th minute header by Cincinnati’s Dani Konig safely over the bar as well.

And so with Ranjitsingh back from a hip flexor injury, consider the battle for playing time on with Tim Dobrowolski, who racked up a pair of USL Save of the Week honors during his time as the starter.

Here’s more of what we took away from Wednesday’s game…

• LouCity found itself in a familiar position: taking quality shots, but not getting the desired result — a goal. On a night the club controlled 53 percent of the possession, LouCity couldn’t capitalize on opportunities. Six shots were attempted — half of them on goal — but now LouCity has tallied eight goals this season in nine games against professional opponents.

• It was a highly physical game. Forward Luke Spencer took an early exit, subbed off before the 20th minute, after going down on a tackle. Defender Tarek Morad also received attention from the trainer, though he stayed on. The clubs tallied 22 total fouls, with 15 of them on FC Cincinnati.

• LouCity didn’t move on to a meeting with Major League Soccer’s Columbus Crew later in the Open Cup. But the weeks ahead remain busy nonetheless. After Saturday’s game at USL Eastern Conference-leading Charleston, fixtures are set for Wednesday (Charlotte at home), the following Sunday (New York away) and the Saturday after that (Pittsburgh at home).

I honestly think the coach should bring him in. But TTFA have to get games for Tallest. He just can't stick him in the next 3 Hex games. But he should get a call up.

Ranjitsingh dazzles in second start back
By Tate McGarvey (louisvillecityfc.com)


In his second start since winning the goalkeeping job back from Tim Dobrowolski, Louisville City FC’s Greg Ranjitsingh looked Sunday as if he’d never left between the posts.

Ranjitsingh recorded four saves during LouCity’s 3-1 win over Bethlehem Steel FC with a performance that earned him praise not just from teammates — but also the opposition.

“Greg was incredible,” said defender Oscar Jimenez. “This game, he had a few great saves. Even the other team, when they’d run past me and stuff, would be like, ‘This guy’s an animal. I can’t believe he saved that.’ And I’m like, ‘He does that every day.’”

Ranjitsingh and Dobrowolski have split time at goalkeeper this season, with coach James O’Connor saying both deserve to one day play at the Major League Soccer level. From Toronto, Canada, Ranjitsingh stated his case again Sunday.

An early save and subsequent punch-out started things, with LouCity and Bethlehem scoreless then. Then in stoppage time, Steel FC’s Santi Moar put a shot on frame that deserved to score. But diving the opposite way, Ranjitsingh reached for a one-handed stop.

Moar opened the second half with another great look, only to be denied once again on one of eight Bethlehem shots in the box.

“Sometimes we have the ball all the time, and he just needs to be connected with us,” Jimenez said of his goalkeeper. But it wasn’t that sort of day for LouCity, which controlled only 43 percent of possession. Added Jimenez: “He’s been there to back us up when we need it.”

He gives us a better chance to win, TTFA (or more specifically DJW) can't have that.  We will compete and come within inches so the campaign looks like it was somewhat salvaged to those who haven't been paying attention (most of the socalled fans).

When vein sociopaths run your national football team from abroad and appoint house negroes locally who would sell out their mother for 100 pieces of silver, of course you would get assnine selection decisions like right now...

You really think the best coach and best team will get selected and allowed to practise and train together to gel, in order to beat the top teams and qualify?

Think again, have a look at the West Indies, parallel paths they say, tony cozier alluded to that external forces are at play in the selection of players...

Boycotting of the best players and the firing of Simmons who was best suited for the role and won...

Now look at TT football, firing of Hart, dropping of captain, Levi and other players dropped or relegated to the bench ...

If you're intelligent you will figure out what's going on, if you're not, you will make every excuse in the book to justify what's happening so you don't rock the boat ...

You're applying logical reasoning pull stones but the dictator is all about corruption and sabotage, so nothing logically speaking can explain his behaviour and Tallest behaviour in regards to selection, so you need to look outside of that and think outside the box to rationalize what's taking place

To be fair guys, let's not forget Hart did call him up and left him on the bench for the USA game when we had already qualified for the Hex. He should have started in that game and ah really cyah understand why Hart did that. So it's not much of a difference to Tallest not calling him up at all. Hopefully, the call comes sooner than later.

Jan wouldn't have taken the bench tbh and Hart didn't want to disrupt the team chemistry as Jan has a big say on the team

So it wasn't all Hart on that imo

The main problem is we are too racial in this country are men pushing this player because he has an Indian surname and not his ability.  Cause even before he was starting for his USl side when he was a backup keeper.  Men were screaming for him to be on the national side.  If he is so Good why no MLS club has not snapped him up. Probably if that happens and he starting Game in and Game out for his club then we can call for his inclusion.  But for the record he is not the only Trinidad keeper to play in the USL and yet none of the rest it had any uproar for them to be on the squad.  Put race aside and be consistent

Level ass talk.

There are two problems with this statement. It's easier to deal with the last part first. He has started consistently for his club. That club need not be a MLS club. The USL provides a satisfactory standard for national team selection. In addition to starting for his club, he has on more than one occasion had to establish/re-establish himself as the starting GK in the USL (after injury etc.). Not an easy thing to do consistently.

There is clearly something noteworthy about the quality of this GK, other than his race. On more than one occasion we have heard/read firsthand accounts of his exceptional play in games . In the US, no one is going to get that "because he has an Indian surname".

Can he play at a reasonable pro level? Yes.

Is he better than the national team players who compete for his spot? There are only a handful of persons whose opinions I would trust with that and I have not heard them weigh in publicly on the matter.

Is he better than players who have filled in for Marvin or Jan? Without a doubt, he is of better quality than at least one of them.

Dan Guerra only now seem to be regaining and displaying his abilities that originally endeared him to us.  Most of us have always liked the player but for a moment he wasn't doing anything meritorious of being selected.  In recent times however he seems to be playing himself back into the conversation which is great.  Who does he instantly replace among the regulars in midfield? George, Boucaud, Hyland, Molino, who exactly?

Take Sam with a grain of salt eh fella. Now while is tongue in cheek, it does raise a question that we always visit from time to time as to whether any of the other ethnicities that comprise our sweet T&T does get overlooked simply based on race. However with GR what you pointing out is actually counter to your argument as Sam insinuates that he may actually not be getting the attention he deserves because of his race. Not really congruent with your argument that we seek to have him included because of it. The 2 "pongkin vine" related but is a big stretch trying to make them one in the same.  Hard luck dey hoss!

is that damage control you are emploring after being the only one to seriously invoke race, dude have you watched any of our last 10 games with Marvin or jan in goal? in our last 10 games we had one clean sheet (panama march 25th) and for this campaign alone we have conceded 12 goals thus far which are horrid  stats for any goalkeeping crew coach included.

have you ever wondered why Jan and Marvin has never made it out of trinidad/the pro league for any length of time? I happened to believe that if we had an andre blake a navas or a tim howard we would actually be in contention for a place in the top three. Jan and marvin suffers from serious goal keeping anxiety, very bad on set pieces more so Marvin than jan, another glaringly obvious flaw is the constant incident of them charging off their line at attacking players when they are engaged by a defender instead of allowing the defender to deal with the problem and most of our goals were conceded in that fashion.

the bottom line is these guys are not staters and should only be used in a back up situation. suffice to say that they are incapable of being effective on this level especially marvin slippery fingers phillips. we desperately need a first team capable goalie and we're sick of losing due to goal keeping errors of this magnitute that's why we want greg, not because of his race or nationality but based on his stats and club performance he might be the best man for the job and a much better option.

I would like to see Greg get called up. But with the next four games, unless the two current keepers get injured, I don't see him starting. I know our keepers have deficiencies. Our real problem is the 10 guys in front of them. They not playing well. They not in sync. They play good football for the first 45 mins, and then things fall apart in the second half.  Midfield/forwards play is disjointed. Midfield/defence play is shakey. Until we resolve these issues and can play a full 90 mins of good football, no GK stand a chance to save TT.

 We must inquire why the Tallest has not call him up. I think he should be on the squad for the next CFU championship. We also need more friendlies. But as you see how much takalang that does cause. Clubs don't  even want to release players  in the Fifa window. What the TTFA should do  is to ask for an invite to the Winward Island football championship. And only pick the guys who don't play regularly for the national. So guys like Greg, Powder and a couple of fringe players(home and abroad) get to show their abilities.

If football is being blamed for discriminating(which I don't), then TF, hockey, rugby, basketball, netball all should fall into that category. Look, Guyana and Suriname are almost the same as TT and their national teams are just as top heavy with Afros as TT.  The real issue is how to encourage Indo-Trini kids to stay the course in football. They do for cricket. Why not football and the other sports

Thank you Deeks. That point about encouraging more Indo kids in Trinidad to play has a lot of truth. People let me ask all yuh a question. Where was GR developed? Canada.. not TT. So what Deeks saying hit it right on the head.

I hope he get a call up sometime in the very near future.. I believe he does have another option. His mother is Guyanese.

The reason Greg is not being selected has nothing to do with ethnicity or the invented race construct that people are brainwashed by, but mostly to do with sabotage and internal team politics

Remember who issued the statement on behalf of the players to the ttfa as to which coaches were on the shortlist for the players.. you guessed it, Jan..

The players support him and Marvin in goal, regardless of their results, we won and drew with them once the dictator was not in the picture

Is Greg better, yes he is, I've seen two of his games, he is our number one choice right now, will he ever get selected, well that's like asking if john will ever play for us?

I love how brainwashed some men does be with this pnm and unc chain up lol men still dunce on divide and conquer politics

I have seen Ramjitsingh play once and i have seen him in training live once.  He seems a very competent keeper.  Very good on crosses and pretty decent positionally.

I agree that he should at least be in our national set up as a worse case scenario 3rd string keeper, even tho i think he is better than Marvin.

Jan is still our undisputed number one keeper! He commands the respect of the rest of the team and he is one of the leaders in the squad. 

I asked a member of the technical staff about Greg and i was told that Hart liked him alot, but he wasnt good enough to risk the possible impact on team chemistry, especially the defensive team chemisrty. 

However Jan and Marvin are both around 32.  So i expect this to be their last campaign.  Hopefully, the technical staff will see Greg's value sooner rather than later and start integrating him into the national team so that we wont have the chemistry issues by the time the next campaign rolls around.

ah love it!!

Title: Ranjitsingh’s organization keeps pressure off in goal

Ranjitsingh’s organization keeps pressure off in goal
By Dan Karell (louisvillecityfc.com)


One of Louisville City FC’s most important players gets only a few touches of the ball per game — and that’s how the club prefers it.

Goalkeeper Greg Ranjitsingh has consistently led and organized one of the United Soccer League’s best defense, with LouCity’s 1-0 win Saturday over the Charleston Battery his sixth clean sheet — fifth in the Eastern Conference.

“I think with our team, defensively we’re really strong, not only in our back four but in front of them,” Ranjitsingh said. “We work really hard, and we really limit the opposition’s chances. I think for us, the goalkeeper on our team, it’s going to come down to maybe one moment in the game or two moments in the game where you have to come up big and make the save, and that’s how it’s been because the rest of the game, they’re going to shut it down for you and keep it clean.”

Ranjitsingh only had to make two saves against the Battery, and they were both game-saving stops.

The first came in the 11th minute, when Charleston’s Maikel Chang fired a strike across goal from the right side of the box. Ranjitsingh quickly reacted to the blast and palmed the shot just over the far post.

The keeper’s second save came five minutes later as Heviel Cordoves tried his luck from outside of the box, and Ranjitsingh was up to the task.

For goalkeepers though, the stats don’t tell the whole story. There’s no stat to track how Ranjitsingh organizes the defense in front of him, making sure they are positioned in the right places to cut out passes and prevent shots.

Consider that, for instance, Ranjitsingh has faced 42 shots in 14 games played. FC Cincinnati’s Mitch Hildebrandt has faced a stunning 116 shots in 25 games, good for more than 4.6 shots on-target per game. Hildebrandt has saved nearly 70 percent of those, but the defense in front of him keeps one of the USL’s other top keepers busy.

Organizing the defense, and the team in front of a goalkeeper, is a skill that requires intense focus and constant communication.

“I think it’s all mental,” Ranjitsingh said. “With goalkeeping, everything is all about mentality and confidence.”

What the statistics do say is that Ranjitsingh is one of the best at his position. It’s why he earned a call last year to the Trinidad and Tobago National Team.

He’s saved two-thirds of the shots he’s faced, made 13 catches, seven punches and 19 clearances. Those are better numbers than Hildebrandt and Orlando City B’s Earl Edwards Jr. They’re similar numbers to Charlotte Independence’s Cody Mizell and Toronto FC II’s Angelo Cavalluzzo.

Having a capable second goalkeeper in Tim Dobrowolski has kept Ranjitsingh on his toes in training. Added are Ranjitsingh’s intangibles: setting up a wall for a free kick or making game-saving stops. Having moved past an injury in the season opener, Ranjitsingh’s living up to the hype in 2017.

did you know the main the reasons for our crashing out the hex is because of our goal keepers and their silly errors? maybe someone should keep an eye on those guys for fear of rigging games because I can't believe experienced keepers making such woeful mistakes in very important matches. all two goals on friday were as a direct result of positioning, if jan had stayed on his line his chances of saving the first goal would have been 80% but instead he stood at the top of the six yard box and conceded, but he he been on his Line he could have pushed it over for a corner. same with the second goal very bad positioning giving himself no chance to save the shot.

last night Marvin did the same rubbish. Panama went on the offensive with a one on one situation Gonzales is beaten for pace and instead of him fouling taurez he runs along side him not even putting a body on him then if that was t bad enough the next idiot ( Kevan george) rushed out and got beaten instead of fouling torez, then the third idiot mr Marvin Phillip instead of staying on his line and leaving the defender the space to deal with the attacker he too came out to the edge of the box and collides with his defender real text book errors. I think it's time for a new goal keeper. come on Dennis wake up, how much more you have to see if these guys to know that they aint ready for this level? isnt it strange that these two keepers never made it outside of TT, you want to know why? because they never impressed and that's why they bounce around the local league from connection to central FC to north east star........they never impressed no clubs outside of the pro league. just wait and see jan would be back home before you know it. co e on Dennis give Greg a chance please.

Ranjitsingh’s key saves keeps LouCity on top
By Tate McGarvey (louisvillecityfc.com)


After a slow start to Sunday’s match, goalkeeper Greg Ranjitsingh earned his keep as Ottawa Fury recorded 15 total shots, 7 of which came late in the second half.

Ranjitsingh added to his 35 total saves on the year – some of which held Fury FC from taking three points from the boys in purple.

“I thought he made a couple of important saves for us,” said coach James O’Conor on his starting keeper. “I think there was one definitely that I thought was a big save.”

The Mercer University graduate added another save when Ottawa’s Sito Seoane nearly tied the match with a left-footed strike outside the box, but Ranjitsingh’s diving stop held the hosts in check.

Ranjitsingh, who left the season opener against Saint Louis FC with a hip flexor injury, has since come on to help his club record 7 of its 11 clean sheets.

“Again, with the goalkeepers that we have, we have tremendous belief in Greg and Tim (Dobrowolski) and Micah (Bledsoe) that have taken on underneath him,” added coach O’Connor. “So for us, it’s an area that we feel very fortunate to have such good goalkeepers and again, Greg is someone that we have tremendous belief in.”

Ranjitsingh earns penalty shootout redemption for Louisville City
By Nicholas Murray (USLsoccer.com)


A year ago, Louisville City FC goalkeeper Greg Ranjitsingh had to watch from the sidelines as his side entered a penalty shootout against the New York Red Bulls II with the Eastern Conference Championship on the line, a pulled groin aggravated early in the second half denying him the chance to make a difference for his side.

On Saturday night, with the two teams facing the exact same situation after finishing level 1-1 after 120 minutes of action in front of 10,047 fans at Slugger Field, Ranjitsingh was on the line, ready to make a difference.

“I wasn’t nervous at all,” said Ranjitsingh. “When it comes to penalties for a goalkeeper, you can only be the hero, you can never be the villain, so for me, I went in there like, ‘I’m going help my team out, save one if I can, save two if I can,’ and I made a couple of saves and helped the team win.”

Ranjitsingh’s pair of saves, the second on New York’s Ethan Kutler to open the fifth round reminiscent of the save made by Red Bulls II goalkeeper Ryan Meara a season ago on Louisville’s Ben Newnam, proved enough as Louisville earned its first trip to the USL Cup in the most dramatic fashion possible.

“It was an incredible, absolutely phenomenal game,” said Louisville Head Coach James O’Connor. “I’m just really proud of all the players, the owners, the supporters. It’s a really, really special night for us.”

With the second-highest attendance of the season on hand, things couldn’t have started out better for Louisville as they looked to turn their third consecutive trip to the Eastern Conference Final into the club’s first league silverware. In the 12th minute, Brian Ownby’s pirouetting shot from the top of the penalty area bent into the left corner of the net, sending the massive crowd into an early celebration.

“Luke [Spencer] did all the dirty work for me, won it twice,” said Ownby. “Somehow it just bounced around, I just swung at it and caught enough spin to sneak right in the corner. It was definitely a great feeling to score early.”

Louisville could have added to its lead as the Red Bulls II looked out of sorts in the opening half-hour, with Paolo DelPiccolo’s shot flashing wide of the right post in the 23rd minute. With the hosts unable to take their chances, though, there was always the danger New York could find a way back into the game, and just before the hour-mark the equalizer by Junior Flemmings started to cause some nerves.

Ownby’s third goal of the postseason was part of a strong all-around display by the winger upon his reintroduction to the starting lineup, and he appeared to have a strong claim for a penalty kick after bursting into the penalty area in the 74th minute, only for the pleas to be waved away by referee Sorin Stoica.

Instead, in extra time, it was Ranjitsingh who emerged as Louisville’s hero as a top-level save to deny Ethan Kutler’s fierce free kick from the top of the penalty area kept the game level. Then, with the game set to be determined from the penalty spot, the Trinidad & Tobago goalkeeper came through for the biggest win so far in club history, and set off a celebration that saw most of the fans who had been in the stands join the team on the field.

“It’s awesome,” said Ranjitsingh. “You had 10,000 fans rush the field when we’re hoisting that trophy up. The support is unreal, the city has just been so supportive of us from the beginning, since ’15, you can see that soccer has been growing in the city every year, attendance is rising, and mid-November to have 10,000 people in the cold watching the game, it’s a credit to the city for showing their support.”

Ranjitsingh even got caught up the celebration with the fans – “I think five Coopers jumped me a threw me up in the air, I had no control over that one,” he said. “That was my first time crowdsurfing.”

With one game left in the season, and the Western Conference champion Swope Park Rangers set to visit, the knowledge that the side’s work isn’t yet done was still at the back of most minds.

“This is special,” said Ranjitsingh. “Third time’s a charm, we were able to lock this up and now we’ve got Monday to look forward to.”

Trinidad and Tobago’s goalkeeper Marvin Phillip, left, makes a return to the national line up.
Minnesota United FC midfielder Kevin Molino, and Levi Garcia, who plays for Eredivisie club AZ Alkmaar have expressed high hopes ahead of this country’s two international friendly matches against Grenada and Guyana on the 11th and 14th of this month at the Ato Boldon Stadium.

Both players at a training session at the Hasely Crawford Stadium yesterday said they were happy to be part of coach Dennis Lawrence’s team that will attempt to conquer Caribbean football once again before it focuses on the Concacaf and FIFA World Cup.

Apart from their confidence, the players were also anticipating the emergence of young players in the upcoming international friendlies. ‘It’s an opportunity for the young players” Molino said, but Garcia who has just returned to full fitness, said he just wants to be back in the country’s starting eleven, staring with the two coming matches.

Both were joined by Point Fortin Civic FC goalkeeper Marvin Phillip, among other seniors in the squad. “It is a good mood in the camp everyone is jolly and we just want to go out there, work hard and finish the year off on a high,” Phillip said.

The trio also alluded to the match ups being instrumental in the players’ continued growth. The country will usher in a new era of football this week as it looks to re-establishing its long-relinquished claim as the powerhouse of the Caribbean. Beyond that, T&T will look toward qualifying for the Digicel Caribbean Cup and the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Phillip’s recall is due to the unavailability of USA based Gregory Ranjitsingh who was originally selected for the encounters but is now excused due to his club’s qualification for the United Soccer League Cup Finals.

In congratulating Ranjitsingh, coach Dennis Lawrence said, “We had this discussion with Greg when he was selected for the friendlies regarding his team’s end of season expectations, so we were prepared to make adjustments. We are all professionals and I am not going to prevent a player from such an opportunity at this stage.”


Shahdon Winchester, the Murcielagos FC striker in Mexico will also be unavailable for the Grenada match due to his club’s crucial clash with Atlante on Saturday. Tickets for the matches went on sale yesterday at all NLCB outlets at $100.00 for covered stands and $50.00 for uncovered. Children under 12 years enter free. Football fans have also been given the option to see both matches with the purchase of one ticket.


Well folks, there it is. I guessed right.

Greg’s gameday ritual is conversations with God.
By Shaun Fuentes (Guardian).


Recent national team call up Greg Ranjitsingh pulled off another solid performance in the USL Cup Final as his Louisville City defeated Swope Park Rangers 1-0 on Monday night.

Ranjitsingh saved two penalties in his team’s win over New York Red Bulls II the previous weekend to book their place in the USL Cup final.

The custodian, who missed out on T&T’s two friendlies with Guyana and Grenada after being initially selected, spoke about his work with club psychologist Kevin Chapman.

He spoke of cues that his teammates had developed for gameday, saying his was having internal “conversations with God” during the national anthem, as well as the feeling he gets while in the tunnel before the teams walk out.

“Nowadays when I go into games, I don’t have nerves at all because I’m always super happy,” he said. “Before games, I’m buzzing. (O’Connor) will tell us, ‘No one will die on that pitch tonight. Nothing bad is going to happen. Play like you’re a kid on the front lawn, 8 years old without a worry.’”

WATCH: The Best of Greg Ranjitsingh (2017)

2017 was a big year for Greg Ranjitsingh as he helped Louisville City FC claim the USL Cup. Ranjitsingh was a brick wall in goal for Louisville as he recorded 11 clean sheets and a 69.6 save percentage.

Ranjitsingh really excelled in the USL Cup Playoffs where he was a vital part of Louisville’s run to the USL Cup, most notably in a stunning performance in the Eastern Conference Final against the New York Red Bulls II. The 24-year-old claimed the Fan’s Choice Save of the Playoffs for his stunning save in extra time and then went on to make two decisive saves in the penalty shootout to send Louisville past the defending champions. Here's a look at some of Ranjitsingh’s best moments from 2017.

This game falls outside of the FIFA window. So his club is not obligated. But I do know if he was an American with the potential, they would have found a way to cap him. There may be forces in the current coaching who don’t want him for whatever reason. Or maybe he is holding out to get a call up by Canada. He is probably having 2nd thoughts. Like John Bostock.

Bc they are limiting the amount of eligible TT players that reach top flight football, keeper is a key position so they want to keep him at that level of football, it also didn’t help that he didn’t play for the natl team bc the dictator blocked it and also the other 1st string keepers like Jan

Part of the sabotage of our football which also entailed when we got higher or below 50 in FIFA rankings, our sabotage went into full gear

I agree with you and everybody else who says that Greg deserves a call up. Based on his highlights and current form, he also deserves to be in the starting eleven for TT.

Maybe they did and he didn't like the offer. He wouldn't be the first TT player to turn down an MLS offer.

Considering the age and level of football our GKs are playing, I think they should focus on GR and the Danish fellow for the next year (with what few friendlies we have ) and give us a better idea of the mix.

Don't know what more he can do other than keep on performing.

TRANSFER TRACKER STATUS:Signings

Orlando City SC have signed goalkeeper Greg Ranjitsingh and defender Kyle Smith from Louisville City, reuniting the pair with head coach James O'Connor, the club announced Wednesday.

Ranjitsingh and Smith won back-to-back USL titles in 2017-18. O'Connor was head coach of Louisville from 2015-18, before being appointed OCSC boss in June.

Ranjitsingh, 25, made 81 appearances in goal and recorded 33 shutouts for Louisville since signing in 2015. He was a four-year starter at Mercer College, playing 81 matches with 363 saves and 27 clean sheets.

Smith, 26, joined Louisville in 2016 and made 95 appearances for the club. In 2018 he played more minutes than anyone else at Louisville City. He attended Transylvania University and left as the team's all-time leader in goals (47), assists (16) and points (110).

James O'Connor will begin his first full season with the club, which conceded a league-record 74 goals in 2018.

Allyuh really want this guy to play under DJW. Allyuh eh read Lasana report on the players complaining about DJW. Some look like abandoning national team football until they get their moneys. Allyuh sure Greg want 300 TT for his national service.
Title: Re: Greg Ranjitsingh Thread
Post by: asylumseeker on December 19, 2018, 03:00:29 PM
$300 US, not TT.

It really isn't about playing under DJW but about developing a viable long-term relationship with the national team regardless of who is the president of the TTFA. If losing or keeping or getting Greg (or any other player) comes down to who is at the helm of the federation, then that person/those persons should go because football decisions off and on the field ought to be player-centered and team-oriented, rather than about the ego and personality of any administrator(s).

The situation needs to be guided and managed with delicacy and prospective players need to be insulated from the noise of difficult situations that the team has reported experiencing. Without a doubt, it will be a challenging balance to achieve positivity where good faith by key actors is lacking or perceived to be lacking, but positivity must be the yield we get and strive to get.

One hopes that the incentive of Gold Cup participation and international match experience function as magnets to attract those eligible players that are uncomfortable with the dynamics they have seen, read and heard.

Congratulations to Greg on the new opportunity.

Congrats Greg on the promotion to the MLS! Imagine we have a top in form player, playing consistently who made himself eligible and wants to play for T&T but gets blank right through. Yet still it have men on here does fight down players like DeLeon when when they don't make T&T their first choice. Greg should have an axe to grind and say don't come and call me now I signed a MLS contract! Canada will definitely consider him now.

i am 100% sure every one would agree with no questions ask, and it has me scratching my head in bewilderment. But then again it’s trinidad football where bachanal and confusing takes the spot light every time. As a stubborn people we have plenty lick to get until we learn.

He still won’t be selected and if he is he will be discarded for some unknown reason that is not explained to the fans bc the dictator doesn’t want a winning team

If he wanted a winning team, Hart would not have been fired and when the ttfa were rehiring they would have chosen a much better coach which they had the option to as fifa was paying for the coach and has paid Lawrence’s salary from the beginning

So ttfa doesn’t control Lawrence, the dictator is acting on instructions

Breds, is Boxing Day. Instructions from whom? So,  are you saying DL taking instructions from someone in Concacaf-FIFA-Mexico. He is told when to lose, draw or win? So he is being bribed. You know he could go to jail for accepting bribes.

Lawrence is not paid privately by ttfa... he’s paid by fifa, so why would he listen to anyone locally? Djw relays instructions bc name a company where someone is paid by a third party but follows orders of the the middle man?

Has jack gone to jail? It’s not bribery it’s politics... go to jail for what exactly? Ttfa is not paying him and they have ordained that

Best of Luck to Greg!
Think he has a good chance of coming in and producing right away

Orlando had a rough season last year and there's gonna be a lot of changes.
I believe the GK Coach has worked with Greg at Louisville so their chemistry may work in Greg's favor initially.

Hopefully the powers that be give him his deserved opportunity in any upcoming games ASAP.
We have 2 keepers that are in the national pool that have yet to get a cap. Try 'em out and let's see what's up!

Wish we had more video of their sessions as well.

I think Mr. Fuentes can possibly think of not using that much music in his posts n lets' get a real feel for the sessions with the sounds n atmosphere

Ranjitsingh aiming to be Orlando's #1 but still hopes for a T&T call-up.
By Inshan Mohammed.


At Mercer University, Gregory (Greg) Ranjitsingh finished his highlighted collegiate career as one of the top keepers in the country.

Then fresh out of University where he was a four-year starter, playing 81 matches with 363 saves and 27 clean sheets drew close attention. The Canadian-born goalkeeper was snapped up by Louisville City FC (Lou City) in 2015, a team that was about the make its début in the United Soccer League (USL).

Ranjitsingh, went from being named on the All-Freshman Atlantic Sun team while at Mercer, to, winning two historic USL Cup titles for Louisville in 2017 and 2018 respectively, becoming the first ever back-to-back USL Cup winners. Too top that off, Louisville were Regular Season runners-up on 3 occasions (2015, 2016 & 2017). In-addition to being Kings Cup champions 4 times (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018) and Dirty River Derby champions twice (2017, 2018).

At Louisville, Ranjitsingh's first season saw him bench ridden biting his nails hoping for the day he'd be the number one choice for Lou City and, it came. His second season painted a different picture. A suspension to the club’s first choice goalkeeper Scott Goodwin, gave Greg the opportunity that he grabbed with both gloves. He took over the starting role for the USL club, opening with a string of five clean sheets and has remained in-goal ever since. He finished his 2016 performance that saw him post a 0.74 goals-against average and .759 save percentage.

The following season, Greg continued where he left off and was a brick wall in-goal for Louisville as he recorded 11 clean sheets and a 69.6 save percentage and claimed the Fan’s Choice Save of the Playoffs. He finished his career with the USL team making 81 appearances in-goal and recorded 33 shutouts since signing in 2015.

With a couple of Man-of-the-Match performances, some penalties save and a USL Team of the Week selection caught the eye of Orlando City SC, which ultimately led to the T&T custodian being scooped up by the MLS club in December 2018.

Ironically, Greg made his home Slugger Field début for Louisville against Orlando City. He came on as a second-half substitute that saw the home team defeating the MLS team 3-1 that left them shell shocked.

Ranjitsingh, who qualifies to play for Trinidad & Tobago through his father, can also represent Guyana, Portugal or Canada but chose to wear the red, black and white. He earned his first call-up for Soca Warriors under former head coach Stephen Hart back in August 2016. T&T had to face Guatemala at home and the United States (away) in their penultimate 2018 Concacaf World Cup Group C Semifinal Round qualifier.

Greg never made it off the beuch. T&T tied Guatemala 2-2 in their first game which was enough for them to booked a spot for the final stage Hexagonal (Hex). The remaining game against the US was literally meaningless as far as qualifying goes. Coach Hart stuck with his number one (Marvin Phillip) between the sticks only to see his side fall 4-0 to the CONCACAF powerhouse.

In November 2017, the Ontario-born keeper was again called up, this time by current coach Dennis Lawrence for a pair of exhibition matches against Grenada and Guyana. However, Greg was excused due to his club’s qualification for the United Soccer League Cup Finals. Ever since and 6 T&T games later, the player was never called-up again and is yet to earn a T&T cap.

To date, there are only three T&T players and one potential candidate (Ryan Telfer) playing in the MLS, Greg Ranjitsingh, Justin Hoyte (2019) and Kevin Molino.

Since 2016, Greg, still only 25, has made tremendous stride and consistent progress and with the aging Marvin Phillip (34), Adrian Foncette (30) and Jan-Michael Williams (34), Greg deservedly warrant a T&T call-up as one for the future, hopefully, coach Dennis Lawrence will make the call soon.

Soca Warriors Online (SWO) reached out to Greg and the player was all but happy to tell us about what has been happening lately in his career, from his T&T stint to his soon to be MLS exploits.

1. First, congratulations on your move to the MLS with Orlando City. How do you feel about the move, the environment, your new teammates, training and do you think you can hold down the number one spot being that it's a higher level to what you are use to?
GR: I’m very excited about the move. I’ve worked with James O’Connor, Daniel Byrd, and Thabane Sutu before in Louisville, and i’m very happy to link back up with them in Orlando. I’m looking forward to this challenge and i’m extremely confident in my abilities. I think the transition to playing in the MLS will be seamless and that I will continue to perform at a top level.

2. Greg, are you still interested in representing Trinidad and Tobago?
GR: Right now I would like to focus on my club football. If a national team call-up comes, I will deal with it accordingly.

3. How was your first stint with the T&T senior team? What impressed you the most, how did the players accepted you, how did you rate the other keepers and what did you feel could have been improved.
GR: I really enjoyed my first stint with the national team. It was a new experience for me and I thought the players accepted me in to the team and made me feel comfortable. My first call-up was with Marvin Phillips and Adrian Foncette, who I really enjoyed working with. I thought the level we maintained in training was great.

4. Do you still follow the T&T senior team? And has head coach Dennis Lawrence been in-touch with you?
GR: I always follow football, whether it is the national team, club football, or whatever. I have a love for this game and I stay fully aware of everything that is going on. I have not heard from Dennis Lawrence or any other T&T staff since right after the USA match when I thanked them for having me in camp.

5. Finally, SWO (socawarriors.net) and all of its supporters are hoping to see you suit up for T&T soon and would also like to congrat you with winning back-to-back USL Cup titles with Louisville City FC as well as your move to the MLS. Do you have any words for them?
GR: I want to thank all the supporters of the Soca Warriors. I see all the the nice things they write about me and I really appreciate the support they have shown. My wishes are for the federation to resolve their issues so that the players can proudly represent the country without any off the field distractions. The country and fans deserve top football and I know that is what the players want to provide.
