SSFL is a joke... full of "big players" who end up nowhere.... its not really their fault.. we dont have enough options for them after School... the sad part is some of them are 18 and 19 and playing that for 2 months and that is their big season...meanwhile kids like Oscar playing week in week out at Chelsea

I think SSFL should make it an Under 17 league... when you turn 18, go away to Uni or go to a local club and become Pro...or get a foreign contract  :bs:


Most of them fellas who hugging up with the exception of the english yuteman in yuh signature pic was ssfl 'big players'. If we listening to men like you that photo might never exist. P.S.  St Anthony's Tigers all the way.

He was rejected from the TnT u17 team  that is a fact. the coach said he was too small and not on par with the other players, keep in mind he was about 14 at the time. Nothing wrong with that  every coach is entitled to his opinion but that is what happened.

         I am always an ardent supporter of our young footballers but i never had much hope in this u 20 team, i saw them play several times and they seemed a bit soft; not saying that the players were not good; they just didn't have that fight and effort that our youth teams normally have, some of the players on the team were in my humble estimation overated and it showed becaused they played with no effort or sense of urgency ,if they score the celebrations minimal,if they loose the ball it didnt seem to matter to them.
   I hope this loss shrinks the egos of some of these young men and shows them that they are not as great as they think they are and they need to keep working hard to perfect their craft , these kids are so talented but if they dont put the work in all that talent will be for nought. Come on young men we normally blow past this hurdle ,we might fall in Concacaf but not in CFU. We must do better ,maybe we need a psychiartrist to start travelling with these kids to get their heads straight and teach them to focus.

Pres beat Arima 1-0 through a Civaughn Dimsoy goal.

Hear nah...as is having to play away is not enough, even with the impressive unbeaten record in the zone...but the officiating does be a next thing Pres does have to fight up with boy.  Talk about a raw deal the southerners does get up there.  The ref play about 15 mins time-added-on when there were very few time stopping infringements during the second half.

The schedule was madness.  How could a team whether it was Arima or Pres play on Monday then travel to Tobago to play on Wednesday?  Basically 2 games in 48 hours.  The semis should have been no earlier than Thursday and winner of the Arima/Pres game should have had home field advantage to eliminate the travel.

And the North, Central and Tobago teams would've played one game and into the final eh.  I not sure how it was last year, but year before was the same thing.  If is only five teams, they should at least rotate every year so the south and east zone winners wouldn't always play more games (away) to reach the finals.

If it was up to me and they insist on a knockout, Central would play Tobabo every year for a berth in the semis.  Those two zones play the least amount of games in zonal play.  Ideally I would prefer a round robin for the Big 5 so each team play 4 games: 2 home and 2 away.  The team with the most points win just like the days of the Big 7.


  I think they have a draw before the season to know who plays where, nothing sinister going on, i think it's the luck of the draw; last year Caps played two games to reach the final, this year they went straight to the semis

Pres kept their 100% record in the league with a 4-0 win over P'ville.  Big 7 was still around when I left school in the 90s.  I think it was around 2000 it became knockout.

Good going, hoping Pres and St Anthony's make the final ,should be a good one, even though we al know  what the outcome will be  :devil:

One of these days we will get some even reporting in the media as it relates to school football. 

So far on the sports news highlights I see one 10sec clip of Naps playing PVille (I think), but they always showing highlights of the North and East zones.  Don't even talk about the Central zone...even worse for reporting.

Pres captured the South zone with a game in hand and they wrote six lines...primarily about the stats.  St. Anthony's captured the North Zone and the two dailies carrying a ball by ball commentary about the game.

 :cursing:

Because St Anthony's is a big team :devil: not to mention we on a 30 game unbeaten streak

This is worrying we always get through these early groups with ease falling to Mexico which is not bad considering Mexico has one of the best youth systems in the last decade,the last set of u20s took care of these first rounds with ease, i hope this is not the beginning of the decline of our youth football as i am an avid supporter of the youths, but i cant say i am surprised considering the idiot coaches and the axes these coaches had to grind. Imagine St Anthony's college who swept schools football playing 19 games unbeaten,a feat for any team school or otherwise and none of the players are deemed to be good enough for this team. i tell you these administrators of football we have in trini and tobago, mad,mad,mad[  :banginghead:

Actually, John Thomas, Quintero and Rajpaul on de side and them went St Anthony's..


All wrong John Thomas and Xavier Rajpaul Fatima and Dwight Quintero ElDorado Blue , trust me I know ,I follow youth football in trini. You probably mixing up Quintero with Dwight Ceballo

Army edge fighting 'Tigers'
By Kern De Freitas kern.defreitas@trinidadexpress.com

Story Created: Jan 29, 2012 at 11:54 PM ECT

(Story Updated: Jan 29, 2012 at 11:54 PM ECT )

Defence Force avoided embarrassment on Saturday, edging St Anthony's College 3-2 in first round FA Trophy action, at the Larry Gomes Stadium, in Malabar, Arima.

The Army had a few of their first team regulars on the bench, but called on reinforcements after a 1-1 half-time scoreline.

After falling behind 2-1 to the Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) League and InterCol champions in the second period, Army finished strongly to earn their passage to the second round.

Army went ahead through Balondemu Julius in the 34th minute, but just before the break Ajani Clarence levelled for St Anthony's. The Westmoorings schoolboys got Army help for Garvin Samaroo to hand them the lead. But Richard Roy (66th) and Julius (78th) struck for Defence Force, earning their team a winning 3-2 advantage.

The "Tigers" were ambitious in their attacks against the defending Pro League champs, and could have gone ahead but for better finishing in the first half.

Julius, though, took advantage of a poor St Anthony's clearance, and Jahvon Neptune returned the ball into the area from the right flank for Julius to power home from close range.

Just before the half-time whistle the Tigers equalised on a quick counter-attack, Samaroo tearing down the left and delivering the perfect cross for Clarence to beat Army goalie Kevin Graham one-on-one.

Another Army mistake led to the second Tigers goal, in the 59th minute. Keane McIvor took the right side corner, which Graham completely missed, leaving Samaroo the easy tap-in from point blank range.

The Tigers seemed to be holding their own, until the power and pace of Army took over, and an unmarked Roy—who was introduced just after the resumption along with winger Kevon Carter to assure coach Ross Russell of a positive result—slammed home after a quick move down the right and pass from Carter.

The comeback was complete when Julius again blasted home from open space and close up.

With that goal, Defence Force averted disaster, but their overall display should give them some food for thought.

Defense Force 3 vs St Anthony's 2
 College boys had them 2 -1
Real good game

great stuff! glad these yutes were given the chance to prove themselves in real battle.
       I think this is a step backward for the standard of Football in the country,when College and Pro teams are contesting against each other,it tells you how low the standard of our Professional league is,the only people to benefit in all this is the College players,if these Pro teams getting trouble from the SSFL how are they really going to measure up against foreign teams,this is the reason why our Football not getting any where.My thoughts are if they allow College players to play on Pro teams fine but College teams against Pro teams,i can't understand what these people thinking,whose decision was that?     
Really and truly in all parts of the world youths from 16 years onwards are already professionals playing with pro teams fighting against big men so i see nothing wrong with it ,it can only help and increase the morale and standard of the play of the youngsters remember colleges league is for u 20 not u 16 or u 17 and in reality this will also gauge the standard of play in the ssfl. That's just my opinion i may be wrong who knows but at this age these fellas should be playing at this standard.

So, if one of these schoolboys breaks his leg, who foots the medical bills and how does he make up his lost schooling?

Madness.  :banginghead:

they have insurance for the players but it is a pay first type insurance and in other scenarios the ministry gets involved if they need surgery.

That I didn't know as I've yet to get involved in club ball.  That is a bit disappointing to me but then again they still somehow manage to turn out very good players.  So maybe there is a method to the madness I guess.  Funny how even with the model that AYSO employs they still turn out lots of NT material for the US teams.  To me for people to say SSFL is a joke and a waste is a lil bit much.  Like it or not they still play a role in some of the best TnT has to offer. Some coaches and schools have better programs than others.  St. Anthony's for instance has set the stage for players like KJ, Carlos, Corn Curls and Julius to succeed so it cant be a waste by any stretch

Did KJ and Carlos get to where they are because of St. Anthony's?  Perhaps... but I'd argue that Defence Force had a big part to play in their development as well... if not bigger.  Citing one or two players who happen to progress to international (or even club) football after playing SSFL is hardly an argument in favor of the league.  How man peak at that level only to fail later on owing to deficiencies in their game?  Of course the fact that many fail to deliver on their early potential is not the fault of the SSFL, that is a fact throughout the world of athletic, the pyramid effect.  But is it helping more than it's hindering development as presently constituted? 

 Firstly K.J never played for defence force and yes actually St Anthony's college plays a big part in player development, if not it is a hell of a coincidence that in the last decade or so they have produced over forty maybe more national team players from senior to junior teams,i think some people don't know what they talking about mostly, they just parroting what they hear others saying ,ask any of them when was the last time they watch games in the ssfl season and they can't answer, the league is not perfect not by a longshot but it has it's uses, Maybe one of the statisticians on the site can help me with the percentage of non ssfl ex players in the national senior setup in the last 20 years and i am sure from that it will be glaring to see that the ssfl is an important part of our player development setup, so my plea is not to be dismissive of it but give constructive ideas to further devolp it, help it grow further it is our thing every poster on this site i am sure have an intercol story from their time . This is our thing this is something that makes us trinbagonian lets try to improve it so others will get some memories and the players will go further than their predecessors.

Elan, there is some truth to that. Youth football is huge in this country. There is huge amount of talented players who play. Most of them are very serious about the game. You know the college coaches always scouting the youth tournaments for good players to improve their program. But there are a lot of kids into for the fun of. They know they may not get pro contract or even scholarships. They into with their peers until they reach college age when they make up their minds on what to do with football.

My son played against Nick Deleon in AYSO national final in Tennesse about 3 yrs ago.



I not as involved as I used to be, but as soon as these kids start approaching their teens, if they have any talent at all they soon transfer to competitive club football.  It's not at all about fun... is about youth teams with national sponsors traveling and  competing nationally against each other.  If the kids happen to have fun while at it then that is a tangential benefit at most.

Another viewpoint I agree with. Cool.



 Tbh it is not about participation and fun in the SSFL I go to most of the games South.North,East and Central and i can attest to the competitive and serious nature of the contest these guys sacrifice a lot for their schools as for some of them it is their only launching pad to bigger things, these kids if most don't know are playing football in the pro league youth structure from u 14 level case in point St Anthonys College most of them have been playing together in school and as Jabloteh's youth team , Eldo this year is Joe public's youth team for a couple years now and i could go on. I think the attitude of a lot of people is to condemn and attack what the don't know much about. P.S this year the winners of each zone in the SSFL have gone forward into the F.A cup draw to play against Pro League and Super League opposition so i think that's pretty serious.

    Plenty of folks come on here and cry down the SSFL even the Director of Youth Football in T&T Cornmeal say the SSFL is counterproductive but to me that is a load of sh;t . I watch to SSFL games and i go to pro league games and actually the standard of the two not all that different,the SSFL provides a stage for these young men to develop camaraderie and belief and it gives them the experience of football being played with a level of importance and meaning. It gives them self worth and discipline and offers them an opportunity, once they bright enough to further their studies via the us college system.
    In the last 30 or so years most of our internationals {unless they born outside T&T} and professionals have all passed through this same system and they have turned out allright in fact they have exceeded and gone on to bigger and better because they had this platform to begin with.
     So in closing all the haters of SSFL i think a lot of you either want to dam the bridge that others crossed because some of you are so caught in a sense of nostalgia that in your  time it was better and the men had more skill and was bigger etc, wake up from your walks down memory lane and support this essential piece of our football development and pay it the importance and respect it deserves.
