Well, I see that you are giving Gally !0,000 a month for three months to win some trophies. Let us see what will happen at the end of the InterCol season. I heard the prevailing logic was - Look what Maureno did with Chelsea, so pass the bread to Gally.
What about the pool of Players, are you going to buy players if you follow the Chelsea model.
Is this a new thrend in Youth Football. If it will bring results,eg- make the switch to international level- To God be the Glory.

Yes "buying" players has been a practice for some time, but as an ex fatima man, and in defense of fatima, I have to say that the practice was not as popular there as in many colleges (Notably QRC). At least up until I left fatima in '95, on average only 1 or 2 out of 18 players were transferred just to play football. I can even remember years where every player was a Fatima student from form 1.....

Might partly explain why we lost so much haha.....

As a former P. Town player ah could tell yuh that even the Pres men started coming to join we when they realized that the guard had changed.  The best players from as far as Mayaro, Point, Fyzo, P. Ville, Vesigny, wanted to be on a top squad.  Importing going on donkey years now.  Avery John never pass for Pres, nor did Mervyn Wright, just to name a few.

Kicker, haul yuh arse.  The king of transfer players has always been CIC.  St. Anthony's recently has taken the title though.  QRC had a period when a few Junior Sec transfers came in (like Hector Sam from Mt. Hope Junior Sec.) but CIC has been the boss of that.  So doh be "notably QRC" nuttin when it come to dat. 

As a matter of fact, if my memory serves me correctly, Fatima started this trend when they brought a man named Creese to play for Fatima from a Junior Sec in the mid-80s.  Any of the older heads know that name? 
Title: Re: A set of Fatima men on this Forum
Post by: kicker on July 28, 2005, 01:19:05 PM
I know Anthony Creese........that was 88/89......not the mid 80's.......and he ended up barely playing a season.....Sterling Smith (a transfer) played for QRC before that....so I dunno (seriously doubt) if Fatima started the trend, but your example is rubbish....

Anyways, my bad for singling out QRC........If I'm wrong hard luck...I take it back, but I had friends from QRC who gave me that impression......I didn't come up with that on my own......I know for a fact though that Fatima didn't use the football transfer practice very much up until I left..........

As far as de NORTH colleges go..at least when I was playing....QRC was de boss ah dat!!!!!! FI REAL!

Just to clearify your statement there, no men from P.VILLE leave they because they wanted to be on P.Town squad, they leave because of differences between the players and the Manager or the team that's all.  This is from my experiences playing with P.Ville from 95-97.

Wha? I have to chime in on this one. I went to CIC from 76 to 83. And in the time I was there, I cyah tink about more than 1 player, Arnold Corneal, the goal keeper, who Saints pull in just to play ball and that man had to have the grades because them priests them didn't play dat.

In the mean time, I could mention 2 notable names, G. Rodriguez and Geoffery Lake who Fatima snapped up even while the CIC priests were considering cutting them men some slack to repeat. Rodriguez mash up the North Zone that year.

In them days, QRC was routinely pulling men from Trinity, Trinity was pulling men from Belmont and Tranquil, and Fatima was scavenging them Vale men from Diego Sec,  and Saints.

So all yuh, doh try dat. CIC was all about academics. Now if that change, is a welcome change because we on the bottom for too long.

Post by: vb on July 28, 2005, 02:09:20 PM
If I say everything I have to say about this topic, it would take far too long.

Let me just say that Fatima in my time in the 80s didn't play that game as badly as other schools.

Men who could have benn "allowed" to go to Form VI were simply not.

Sheppard of the mid 80s is a classic example. Imagine yu  have a catch ass squad and u tell the best player apologise to the staff for giving trouble in Form V? Thereality is, the man hardly give any trouble.

It was understood that abt. two men would get into Form VI on Sports, but they had to have the grades. (The only exeception I know of was brian Lara :)

A lot of men regularly joined Fatima after Form One, becz they wrote exams and were allowed in. Most of them never played ball for us.

A man who came in around Form four or five was R. Simmons in the early 80s but he had the grades and got a Schol  to the US.

Graeme Rodriguez said that he went to Fatima becz Saints didn't have the Accounting subjects he wanted in Form VI.

If Fatima wanted to play that game, u know how many students we could score.

One more thing. Ppl talk about a boss 87 Fatima squad Captained by Sean Ramdoo. EVERY name I have ever heard from that squad started in Form One....Hines, Sagar, Ramdoo, Cipriani, Burnette, Rodriguez, Roberts,Baptiste etc.

I personally watch Fatima fu%^$ themselves up...becz priniciple came first.

One year a player was banned from the team by the Staff, becz of misbehaviour. Colin Murray the Coach asked for him to play for the squad..he was a key player and he didn't want the team to suffer...the Principal say no...and Murray resigned.

Read Anil Roberts story about how Murray bench he ass for a key intercol game becz he show up 15 minutes late for the team meeting...as Roberts put it...that end the bigitis he was suffering from right then and there.

I could give other examples...but my point is most schools play that game...but Fatima is one of the least of the detractors...u don't keep ur academic rep. by handing out seats like candy.

By acquiring Gally...they have show how serious they are...without making a mockery of the process.

Peace,
VB

So all yuh, doh try dat. CIC was all about academics.

Slates yuh out of it too long boy. This is an issue that as you see men is real take serious.  Now let us look at tihis is a more systematic way:

There are different types of transfers:

1 - Into 4th form from Junior Sec

2 - Into 6th form from whereever

3 - Repeat 5th form from whereever

4 - Into other forms (2nd form, 3rd form etc) from other schools (not Junior Secs)

All three have their problems but I think men will say that the worst of all is the repeaters.  I know many a school that takes repeaters from other schools just for football.  That I think is sh!t.  Especially when you know the fellas them not on books.

Coming into a 7 year school from Junior Sec in 4th form is another issue.  Why can't 7 year schools admit Junior Sec students who excel in football?  I eh see nothing wrong with that.  That at least gives the youth a chance to better himself over a period of time academically and otherwise once he applies himself on and off the field.

The into 6th form thing is another issue again.  When men have bare passes and getting into 6th form to play for another 2 years just to build a "bomb squad" that again is sh!t in my opinion.

Now regarding examples, Trinidad too small to call names so I not doing that.  But I could tell you of a few men well who got turned away from QRC because of poor grades and were welcomed with open arms at CIC.  This is early to mid 90s we talking about here.  So cut the "CIC doesn't do that" nonsence.  St.  Anthony's took it to another level when trhey got their 6th form at long last.  In the 80s Sando Tech and John D. used to stockpile players too (to the betterment of T&T football many would say).

So the question is really: Is importing players and using them to represent a school a bad thing?  If so, how much should it be done before it is considered overdoing it?

Youth,
Allright now yuh makin real sense by posing dat question..at the end of the men leave school and have bills to pay, mouthes fi feed..SO ...student-athletes should be held to an academic standard..end of story..players should not be used in such an exploitive way...while compromising that players' future after-intercol..

Yes we like we football..but there has to be a limit..maybe mandate the number of 'transfers' according to the list of 'transfer types' that you mentioned ..so if yuh have a big player that is not on his books...encourage tutoring .. doh just encourage de youth on de football field..exactly the reason that Trinidad has so much wasted talent....and struggling to put together a national team of merit..that losing to Antigua and St.Kitts etc..
Title: Re: A set of Fatima men on this Forum
Post by: Touches on July 28, 2005, 02:58:21 PM
There are two sides to the coin.

In a way the transfering of players can only be a good thing. I say this because a player coming in from a jr sec or a 5 year school to a 7yr college has the world of opportunity being created for him.

Firstly the colleges league is the big showcase for these fellas, it can be a transition point to the pfl or a university abroad. But the benefits accrue even off the football field. The player now has the academic environment with which to excel, and they usually get help from teachers and students to keep them up to scratch. Look at it as an extra 2-4 years off the street.

Finally, the player making friends that he would not ordinarily make had he not transfered. This friendship sometimes transpires to a man father who have money handling him with a small wuk or at least the player making connections with those who academically inclined who have friends in high places.

The other side of the coin is that these 7yr schools do not have the alternative subjects that the player may be more interested in.
Some people just doe like books and school work. and I have seen many a good player who transfer in just sit down and waste away the academic opportunity afforded to them.

But remember this is why they have a age limit......Yuh hadda be under 18. Most of the transfers who come in already repeat either common entrance or cxc, so even they playing career in school is usually a 2 years max.

Post by: Feliziano on July 28, 2005, 03:40:28 PM
if we still had them Tech schools involved in Secondary school football, the standard of play and skill of the players woulda been a lot better now. If you look at this way,it woulda been boys coming up against men and to me thats a learning experience.
i woulda also say that since they going to school,they better be trying to learn a trade or something and they shouldnt be allowed to join the senior side in a Pro team.
is true most fellas who get transfered just to play sport didnt make use of the opportunity...maybe if they had come in during form 1 they woulda lost that 'ghetto' mentality they pick up from them junior sec. As Touches say...they had the chance to make real connections to help them out in life.

Post by: slates on July 28, 2005, 04:22:19 PM
So Mr. Jahyouth, I out of it too long? Too long to state what I remember? So tell me nah, what is de cut-off?

I stated what I remember to transpire during de time I was there, at Saints. In the seven years I spent there, is 2 players transfered into Saints to play ball, and both had outstanding grades. You had to have outstanding grades to get into form VI at Siants back in them days. I admit I don't know bout now.

Personally, I don't see no problem with schools pulling in men to play ball. I would just like it to be an even playing field whereby the standards for admission is consistent from one school to the next. That way, CIC, QRC, Fatima, St Anthony's, Presentation, all have the same chances at securing a player BASED ON WHATEVER THE ACADEMIC STANDARDS ARE.

You are quite right, Avery and Mervyn Wright did not pass for Pres..but if you look at top players in south since 1986, the majority of then did not pass for the school they gained fame at....Pres stop placing an emphasis on football so players like dwight deleon, vijay samaroo and marvin phillips (all national youth players) went to Princes town.....Marvin went because he had no choice..he was a major problem child and Pres did not want him.

surely not the players...all i remember getting was a Cokes and a drops and maybe some cheesepaste after Coca Cola Intercol lol...real nutritious eh lol.

seriously i really can't say where the money went but i would have to guess it went back to the the respective zonal league..but then again you really cant see where they spend that money. Paying referees, Police, Fire & Ambulance services and Skinner Park rental cant really cost that much too.
For all we know 75% of the people in the Park jump de fence lol.

Tell me why should they stop the promotion and regulation system in college football?  If your team can't make it out of the lower division then you shouldn't be in there with the rest of the teams.  All you are going to do if you do that is bring down the little standard of play that the league has established over the years.

Where are most of our young players being developed?
Is it still in College's league or has it shifted over to the Jablotehs and W Connections?

I see updates on U-15 competitions and such and while there may be more fan support for the SSFL I'm guessing the club football may be of a higher standard.  Anyone can compare them?
Maybe a SSFL champion vs. Club champion would be a good match if they don't share too many players.

In recent years St. Anthony's was the king of buying players. I don't know about how QRC was 20 or 30 years ago but I know that in recent years it has not been a practice to buy players.

Palos already mentioned Gally - i.e. almost 40 yrs ago
I can vouch for QRC - just afterbout 35 yrs ago - Sheldon Gomes, Rolph Clarke(football), Rudy Reid (Track)...
Nb. however, transfer of students already occured, on a non-athletic basis.
I know of some students who were transfered to CIC, Fatima and others simply for academics, and 1 or 2 simply through connection....i.e. a student who failed CE and was at Woodbrook sec. and developed good academic habits, transferred to help the person getting access to better Tools, Labs, Techers or environment.. is it so wrong... In my time QRC wasn't the academically strong instuition it was in the past...Within the school unless you ended p in 2A form in year two. There were not enough teachers to offer a normal full school day. So, many parents with the means transferred there kids to other schools, to try to get their kids the education, amongst other reason...plus some migration issues.
 Which left some places open thus could be filled....so what is the problem in filling with a underpriveledge(relative term) student/athlete...
This occurs everywhere, as far as I am aware....I don't understand, Are people saying this is wrong, and/or unfair?
The only aspect I would find unfair is if a individual played more than say 5 yrs at that level. eg. 4 yrs at Tranquil and 2 yrs at John D...for eg..   

Sorry i made some corrections reload.

Nothing is wrong with player transferring in the SSFL. There just need to be some kind of concrete, consistent criteria.

Leh mih give all yuh ah lil joke:

Now I was ah lil youth-man when Clauzel dem was gettin on bad eh. And I used to go to all ah Mucurapo games back den. So I used to marvel at how dem girls dem used to get-on over dem men. I was sure dem man was lashin nuff tings.

So when I start playin for Saints (we didn’t have girls back den – ah hear Saints have girls now), I wanted some ah de girl-business like Clauzel dem, and more recently (my playin time) Clint Marcelle dem. So after my first year playin for Saints, I make ah run up in de east to talk to de principal at de Green Machine. Dem time, Green Machine was rippin. Well I talk to de man and he was cool. But yuh wouldn guess what it came down to for de lass say? I had to get de approval of de man, who at de time, was de big playa at Green Machine, initials GP. Can you believe dat shit? I eh lyin? So you tink de man go want any competition?

I had to keep my @$$ at Saints, and scavenge ah lil Francois or Holy Name ting as dey pass outside Saints gate yes. I end up pullin ah lil Holy Name young heart, and incidentally, when I end up in college in NC, de ting was dey too yes. Small world.

At least allyuh had ting to pick from.  Fatima men had to settle fuh gyul from St Theresa's and Poly from a proximity basis) even doh we wasn't scruntin as all dem convent & bishop's gyul and dem used to run dong Fatima man like if gold was sharin.  (Well sumting was sharin, man was scorin etc....ANYWAY!!)

But as sparse as we surroundins was (i.e. fuh girls school), we didn't have it bad like dem boy from Trinity.  Dem had to settle fuh dem goat and dem by Moka.... ;D ;D

The biggest Fatima transfer of ALL was Brian Lara. He came from San Juan Secondary.

I know he was originally drafted for football and cricket!

Ah know this is a football discussion but you cant deny that was a big transfer.

I also remember that Colin Rocke tried to get into Fatima and he was rejected.

This I know bc both Lara and Rocke was from Santa Cruz which is where I'm from.

Slates,

I'm aware of who GP is.

My question is did you attempt to join the Greem Machine when GP was a player or when he was Coach.

I can't see Downer or the staff allowing a PLAYER to make that kind of decision.

Raj, I clearly remember Lara as a Form One in the first month of school..ie September.

So when de hell he make dat transfer?

All I could tell yuh is what I see with my own eyes.

The man started Form One in Sept. of 1981. He was pointed out to me as a footballer who had played for the U-12 team.

The next year in Jan. I was shocked to see him play A Giants Cricket. Fomr ones don't usually do that, as the team used to be dominated by Form Twos and Threes.

Dat had to be a mighty fast transfer.

Lara came from Cantaro Village which is where I came from as well. So I grew up with the fella and also played football and cricket at the local playground with him( which is now called the Brian Lara Ground). I used to get a ride to school with his father Bunty and both his family and mines has always been close.

He went to Form ONE at San Juan Secondary and then went to Fatima. SO he REDID Form One at Fatima. One of his coaches at Harvard Cricket Club linked him with Fatima.

Therefore, Tallmans research is CORRECT.

I will always give you props for your comittment to the cause and your excellent work on your site etc
but you should have known the Lara transfer bc investigative journalism is your strength. Do you remember when I had that Grey Galant Station Wagon? We used to ride in together sometimes.

As for Savvannah boys comment , Rocke was by no means a dummy. As a matter of fact he is now an accomplished businessman with a Soccer Training Complex somewhere up north.
He hates Fatima bc he did not het his chance to do A levels there.

Ramdass was an excellent coach who guided Lara but his natural talent and extra practice sessions while in the nets at Harvards and Santa Cruz made him what he is. He always like big men to bowl to him.

I saw Lara faced up to Big Bird Joel Garner in the nets at Queen Parks when he was 16 years old.
Lara was close friends with Bajan Carlysle Best when he played for Windies also. Dem men was grooming him for an eventual entry into Test Cricket.

Hooper also groomed Sarwan in a similar fashion.

              Anthony Creese went to Woodbrook Sec.  82-87  , he then repeated in Mucurapo 88 and at the end of that season made the all-star Intercol team. He then went to Fatima as an A level student and to play ball, that year I think the season ended early because of this.

BTW I spoke to colin Rocke a couple of yrs ago and he had a lot of respect for Fatima ballers.
As he put ıt, they used to fıght the game hard... He singled out Players like Barney, Ramdoo and Solozano during his time....Solo wasn't the most talented but  he had a never say dıe attitude.

Allyuh men is real tears..

The only thing I say negative about Rocke is dat he wanted to play for Fatima and Mervyn Moore turn him down. For the record Colin Rocke was one of the greatest to ever come our of TT that never get his props. His touch was impeccable and if I rememder he ended up playing in Germany for Wolfsburg. I rate him highly having played with him for a youth team. He was a legend and even Pele was quoted as saying that he was one of the best players technically and skillwise he had seen.

No Fatima player was ever as good as Rocke so fuh dem to refuse him was ridiculous. Moore also refused Sheppy and Cipriani  and Larry Williams who all went on to light up Trinity College.
Rocke use to make  big men look silly when he was 14 years old- a man amongst boys

Having not seen Rocke in donkey years VB and Savannah you may be right about me saying he did not like Fatima. Apologies to anyone if my comments upset them.BTW VB What was the name of the two Indians that played for Saints during that time with Rocke , Roach and another fella?/ Dem men was wicked. Do yuh remember them?

Larry with the Dennis Rodman blond hair, when last i saw him.
That guy was crazy, when Shaka catch heself and decide he go dribble down the sideline against Fatima on Saints grounds in 88, Larry come sliding from way across the other side of the field to rest a doubles on him.  Unfortunately he missed Shaka went off the field and hurt himself and had to be carried off.
He was next seen performing a bicycle in a Milo commercial.

Raj ah cah remember the Indians.

I remember Rocke and Shaka playing together for CIC in 84....the last yr. I watch College ball. However, there was a Dogler from the Vale by the name of Reese. Decent defender.

Talking abt. Larry Willimas, they put he to mark Colin Rocke in an inter col fixture vs. Saints at the Nat. Stad.

Well this was 1984...Barney dat ass and another key player went and get injured...Barney get injured mere hours b4 de game....ah man fall out a mangoe tree on top of him and injure Barney foot...ah typing and laughing at how ridiculous this was.

Anyway depleted Fatima take on de bullers..and everybody come out to watch it.

Poor Larry trying to mark Rocke on a wet turf....de man eat beat like it was de tastiest meal on de planet....he go one way..realize Rocke going the other way...and while he skating in one direction, trying to gear in Rocke direction....Barney make a joke and said the commentators say Larry (in all de wet weather)  look like he  tackling a mirage.

Larry and I wasn't no padahs, but dat day he my sincerest sympathies. Any CFL player who had to mark Rocke had their work cut out for dem but on a wet turf.....well dat would be just pure pull stones.

Larry was still playing ball in 88 and yet still managed to get turned down by Moore?
For What?? To go to school in 1989.....The man started Fatima in 1980.....Ah hope allyuh men have allyuh facts correct.

Larry Williams went to Trinity for a while and he was a good player that was aggressive. VB I remember that game when Rocke was eating Larry live. With that wild aggression Colin was killing him with the fan and dem touches. The crowd was bawling. As for the Indians from Saints one was Roach and he was based in Diamond Vale Diego.

Larry went to Mercer College in Atlanta and studied law. In 98 for miami carnival I saw him with Verne Wayne Smith drunk at a fete. I was with Sean Anthony and dem fellas hail we out.

Keith Scotland did A levels History and English with me and always wanted to be a lawyer. He got good grades at A level C in History and B in English. He was good at argumentation and to me destined to be a lawyer. In class he was definitely shining.

Both Larry and Scotland now handle cases together in Trinidad. They are both high profile lawyers.

Man is always good to reminise. Dat school was excellent!

Anil Roberts and Dominic Beaubrun was two fellas that were very articulate for their age. Do not forget Wickham who went to MIT and Harvard.

beckles was a decent player monteil was just downright jokey every time i think of he i remember he uncle ian bain a great baller.

 mr moore and mother frog heywood them kill fatima dead from the time pantin leave fatima went down. pantin was a boss principal who loved sports and had tha balance between that and academics just like De V in CIC also had RO playing a major part.  moore had no clue a total goat.

Yeah Monteil doh look nothing now like he did back in his Fatima days, for that matter neither do I.
I know we had two real tall men in the back for Fatima in my days, Miguel 'mamba' Burnett and an even taller darker fella from the East who's name escapes me now, he used to run track with me.
Thankfuly most of us have changed from how we was back in school.  I remember Anil was real trouble, getting sliced on his face and flying out for plastic surgery, gettting suspended from school for last day of schoo wildness and having to sit his OLevels in CIC cause he was not allowed back in Fatima.  The man literally drag meh pardna on the ground behind the wall by the grounds over to Mucorapo Comp.
Story I heard about Larry Williams while practicing law in Atlanta, he catch a case as a public defender for a man that get stopped for drunk driving by the police get out his car and point a gun at the police.  Larry get the man off by telling the judge that the man was just trying to hand the gun over to the officers...whey!!!!!

Yeah Keith Farina was definitely one of the most composed defenders and a great tacler of the ball.
My favorites was Lawson Bernard and Dwight Findly ( two short men). But allyuh cannot forget Scott Rodriguez when he leave the GK duties and bc the bound to score FORWARD.

There were some great players who never played for Fatima but went on to play for the Green Machine. Anthony Julien and Anthony Desilva( he uncle taugth Spanish at fatima). Both men was from the east.

I lived in Arima with him, one of the best, could do anything with a ball, no discipline he still there in the East.
I saw Lawson in D'Vale breakfast fete last carnival, he in the UK, for some reason Mr. Romero did not like him too tuff, and you know if Romero doh like yuh is trouble..dat mean you dont get to study in the AC in the office.

keston wright talented from macoya went gustine play with nixon team-

fatima in the 80's had good players findlay, lawson, farina, scotty, barney,sean, anil, ramdoo,saga, mamba but then they always had bad luck and and moore and mother frog i tell all yuh them kill we make we lose talented men or give men pressure while cic/qrc  on the other hand always had that support from the administraion and faculty way more than fatima did and a good principal that saw the value in sports.

Allyuh men is real tears..

The only thing I say negative about Rocke is dat he wanted to play for Fatima and Mervyn Moore turn him down. For the record Colin Rocke was one of the greatest to ever come our of TT that never get his props. His touch was impeccable and if I rememder he ended up playing in Germany for Wolfsburg. I rate him highly having played with him for a youth team. He was a legend and even Pele was quoted as saying that he was one of the best players technically and skillwise he had seen.

No Fatima player was ever as good as Rocke so fuh dem to refuse him was ridiculous. Moore also refused Sheppy and Cipriani  and Larry Williams who all went on to light up Trinity College.
Rocke use to make  big men look silly when he was 14 years old- a man amongst boys

Having not seen Rocke in donkey years VB and Savannah you may be right about me saying he did not like Fatima. Apologies to anyone if my comments upset them.BTW VB What was the name of the two Indians that played for Saints during that time with Rocke , Roach and another fella?/ Dem men was wicked. Do yuh remember them?

VB ..


I en know if Damien Cooper yuh talking bout as de other Indian (Barry Roach was de other) ...because I en know if Cooper go want men callin him ah indian!!!!!  good player doh one ah CIC better midfielders ..

worst one was when cic give we 5 when all we needed was a draw to win big 7 tha one hurt

Not as much as the year when we lost the league on the final day because we draw with Fatima at Serpentine road.

I believe it was 88 (the team with Jason Rocke, Gatt, Henry, 3 Mozes, Bartholo)  and we beat QRC in midweek to take a 1 point lead and with the fags coming up on Saturday we thought the title was won. Only to come and draw on the final day while QRC win. That one hurt.

My worst memory is of an own goal scored by Mamba in the National Stadium vs CIC in 87 or 88.  I seem to be the only one that remembers this.  I distinctly remember walking from school to the stadium, my eyes getting big big when ah see all the convent gurl and dem.
Miguel as last stopper unmarked turn towards his own goal and pass the ball back to the keeper directly towards the goal and some how the ball goes past the keeper and into the net!!
SALT!!!
I apologies to all the Saints smallmen i beat up that day :)

somehow I am the only one to recall this game or goal, maybe it was a dream, maybe it was Simmons and not Miguel, Maybe it was QRC and not Saints.....

Some sweet memories allyuh men brng back dey.

Anil Roberts did CXC in CIC?

Well he did CXC in Fatima wit me...so I am assuming he repeated.

He played for Fatima in Form VI ...so I guess dey let him back in.

But Anil back in those days always had a lil too much mouth for his own good....but then again so did I.. :)...The difference is dat mouth earning him some good money now... ;D

Back in the early 80s..1981 Fatima lost the national Intercol Final 1-0 to the Green Machine.

We could have won the league...but for some reason in the second round,the Coach kept playing with the sub..while the stars looked on...In playing Saints and QRC in the second round...we got 7 from one of them and 6 from the other...so we lost smthng like 7-3 and 6-2...bear in mind we beat both of them in Intercol prior to the second rounds.

Daslivla was a talented footballer and cricketer. He and Beckles should have gone out for the Fatima football team. Dasilva never tried. Beckles just didn't have the guts to take the jamming...but to his credit was a decent allrounder for Fatima in ciricket.

It doesn't surprise me that Dasilva played well for another school.

Farinha was an up and coming star when I was in Fatima. He was a form four on the first eleven side...coming off the bench in 84...Larry was his riding padnah on the bench...But you knew that Farinha would be a future star for Fatima...I wasn't around to see it...but it doesnt' surprise me to hear u guys talk about him that way.

A man who I think could have doen well for Fatima as a Defender...was Bernard abreu..very good and tough...but I dont think he ever made the effort.

Colin Bell had he stuck at it could have been a good keper for Fatima...but again no perseverance.

I'm surprised that Julien became such a good player. Is this the same Julien that was in class with Sheldon Guerra and Raj?? I think he did a Milo Ad in the  newspaper.

Peace,
VB

VB,

You right it was the same skinny Julien who went on to star for the Green Machine. He earned a track to some US college. Both him and DeSilva went on to play for the Green Machine.

Dem men including mehself could never get a fair look for Fatima. All 3 of us suit up and play against Belmont for a 1st eleven match when Colin Murray players did not register in time. We win 2-1. It was basically a 2nd eleven. We was suprised when Murray ask us to do the wuk.

Julien, DeSilva, Guerra, Hordatt and Beckles played U14 for the Giants B team for a couple of games and  after we say f**k that.

Adrin Alleyne went on to play for the 1st eleven with Derek Gooding also.

Needless to say our class Group 2 used to dominate class league.

While in school I played with Newtown Sports, Alcons and Challengers( all in the east). Right before migrating to the states I began to train with Caledonia.

In the states I was on the Ft Laud strikers developmental squad for 3 months in 88. Got to meet Ardiles from Argentina.

Then football became history and spectator sport when I became a dad.

Post by: Mr Mc on August 05, 2005, 11:19:18 AM
Anil did not attend CIC for his CXC exams, he just had to physically sit in their building to write the exams because of the incident with the other student.
I lived in Santa Rosa Heights with DaSilva (and also the Spanish teacher) and know first hand the skills he had, and we had many talented men around Sheldon Bennet and Mickey Trotman, he just needed a lil guidance.
Did not know Sheldon Guerra played ball, he was a track guy with me.
Title: Re: A set of Fatima men on this Forum
Post by: vb on August 06, 2005, 03:10:24 AM
Sheldon Guerra was a boss athlete, but like many in his year, his football skills blossomed as the years went by, eg. Cipriani, Mamba and Julien.

I don't know why Dasilva never made a better effort, he could have certainly made the grade, like Mamba he may not have been a First  11 Player in Form V, but with a repeat or Form VI, he would have  been a major player...ala Ciprian and Aldrin Allaine.

Winston Chandler could have been a bigger star, but he got lazy and fat and simply didn't study. To his credit he slimmed down in later years, played for Trintoc and continued to be a major player in the St. James area as he later foucussed on his academics.

BTW raj, you forget the licks allyuh class used to get in the first two years in Fatima.

In form one I think we buss 18 GOALS on allyuh...and ur class had the distinction of losing to a girls team, I think it was a Holy Name class. But as the years ticked by allyuh fellas developed...Guerra, Julien....the really fat black fella.....a next one who also played good cricket (sorry..age, I cant rmmber some of dem names...the faces are in front of me..but the names have escaped me.

On the girls issue, the Spanish teacher Harragin from Saints in his first year arranged a get together day bt Holy Name Convent class and our class. We let them girls win football bc it was the first time for many men to see live bodied females. Real men was touching them up during the game. Dem girls had big tot -tots for dey age. Harragin was a boss teacher bc of this. I doh care about who was winning it was just de tackling and contact that was fun.As for that 18 goals I doh remember that. Ah remember the Fatima Giants team beat St Anthonys 28 goals. Anil score 6 and Chandler score 5. Yuh right bc after Form 2 we will everything bc no men who was playing for de school could play class league. Most of us develop later than others.

De Silva and Julien was still in a class of their own. They could both kick hard and was skillful as hell. Dem men was real good in Form 1 but never fit in with the Fatima system. Both were better than Mamba, Farina etc. Mamba and Farina became  boss players as they got older.

My favorites were Lawson Bernard, Ramdoo and Dwight Findlay. Cipriani was good too but he was a ball hound... bawling for the ball all the time and getting vex like Stern.

I'll understand if all dem blows in form one give allyuh amnesia :)

I belive dominic beaubren who harldy used to play ball scored a hat trick..

U are right becz the other class' best players who represented the school coudn't play interclass...ur class with decent players took advantage of this...but by the time allyuh hit form V, some men had seriously develped regardles...ah yess the fat fella...Gibbs...the othe fella was chubby and played A Giants cricket.

Ah believe u about the woman situation...I let enough woman keep de ball as I focussed on the "feel up," at that age...that was real ting yes. But yuh still lose to a girl's team.. ;D....tot tots or not tot tots.

Yes our A Giants rest 28-0 on S. Anthony's and the B team beat them 14-0.
In the A giants game Scotty Rodgrz stopped keeping and scored two or three goals.

Breds u make a powerful statement there about Ro.

Ro might have been an ass at times but he was committed to Fatima. and he was always there in the corner of any yute regardless of race who could rep. Fatima in sports.

There was one fellas who had the skills and brains but wouldn't study. Ro used to go up in Belmont and personally pick de man up at home and bring him to school.

To say Ro hold back black man. is a curious statement.

But he wasn't one o dem fellas looking to say "Black is beautiful." and cry down white ppl.

If Ro thought you were a lazy black man with no ambition, he called it like it was.

needless to say this was in FormV, with Ro as dean.

but i digress... give him his credit where it is/was due, but he was not holier thanThou. he had a lot of favourites aka "the RO boys", who had keys to his office...and who could get away with murder in fatima. harry was a fair person and coach to deal with.

then if we lose a giants game Harry make man gears up and train after the game-tha man was crazy.

Let me start out by saying dat I doh nuttin much bout football except when de ball go inside de net.  I know dat is a goal.  Ah join de "nation" because I is ah Trini and ah supporting anything good fuh meh country.

So ah want tuh put een meh possibly ignorant two cents. 

North American universities and colleges taking players from all other schools and countries fuh dat matter to strengthen dey sports programmes.  So what wrong if CIC, Fatima and whoever take from whereever tuh achieve dat goal.  It helping the school and it helping de players.  True..it mean dat de schools wid the best pull going tuh get de best ah de crop but is not so the NBA and de NHL teams does operate?

Hopefully internationally teams will start looking at our players in various sports, de way dey look at other non-North American players and give de youths and dem something tuh work towards.

Ah wrong?

I'm not a Fatima man, but I had loads of friends from there and not to mention I would help out at Computer Camp to check out the gyuls and dem.  :-*  Anyway, when I was a small man going to school at St. James Sec. I would go to IC games at Fatima and CIC grounds and no know anyone.  I was just there to take in pure football, men battling for pride and old talk the next day.  I think those were some of my best memories of home.


On a unrelated topic, I doh know if you guys remember Ms. Blackman (Computer Teacher) she passes away in a car accident this year(I think a couple of months ago).  Anyway, she was another reason I hung out at Fatima, a real first class teacher and person.

Yes ttgapers,
dat game between CIC and Fatima brought back memories.
de last time de Toronto lime kick ball in Mississauga,
I was olde talkin with jrsams on dis and he remembered it vividly.
but I cannot recall who won

Anyhow I recalled getting there and going thru de gate from de police barracks
a Saints man standing by de gate askin we for $2 each, well there must have been
15 of us and one of him after we give he some olde talk we ent payin to come in
he eventually gave in and took 2 dollars for the gang of us (pursuation by numbers)  ;D

When CIC scored, I sure I heard cornell on an older man radio say "St Marys has just scored a goal and their supports have invaded the pitch"  this is when the 1st and 2nd formers also invade the field after they started with the projectiles (aka softdrink bottles and cans)  man start to burn each odder school flags. Cornell "and Fatima is also running onto the pitch"  followed by the ever so friendly montied police with the loaded horse ready to kick your lights out...

Keston Wright another name to remember from the olde days 1988 form V.

Mr Ramdass with Form 3 group 1.
Mr Joseph giving 3 hour detentions.

I decide to ressurrect the Fatima thread.

You guys remember Sheldon Cipriani - A Vale Man.

Well Sheldon was on the bomb 1987 Fatima squad with Sean Ramdoo.

The man is a football Coach in the 'STates now.

Director of Coaching in Gainesvill

http://gainesvillesoccer.org/sheldonbio.htm

I remember when he started off in Form One and couldn't even kick a ball. He has come a long way.

Cipriani was a goalkeeper first for the Giants U14 team, then he convert to midfielder,I believe he played for 1st eleven at one time. He was good and always wanted the ball. A little bit of a ball hog that would get upset easy but overall a good player. I think he went to Trinity as with Sheppy and Larry Williams

Good to see him doing well. :D

Me eh know what de ass u trying to say nah.

Raj, are yu sure, that Sheldon was a GK for U-14? Ah know he had fantasies of bieng a GK, and used to keep for our class at one point.

Yohannes Camps Campins was the U-14 GK. Was Sheldon the GK for the B team. Surely not A.

I know in Form 1V, he was playing outfield for A Colts.

What I remember about Ciprianni was in his younger days, he used to love to dribble and sometimes unnecessarily lose the ball.

But he had decent skills, he literally got better as he got older.

Sitting in the Pavillion  (probably bez of the rain). Funny how some things are remembered. Rivers was a red skin fella and I swear he had a red fro. When I see the GK with black hair, I swear is some odder fatima team. I don't remember rain that day but then it was 27 years ago.
