Klil Keshwar selected to represent Trinidad and Tobago at CONCACAF U-20 World Cup Championships
sfcathletics.com


St. Francis College Brooklyn women's soccer goalkeeper Klil Keshwar has been selected to represent her native Trinidad and Tobago in the upcoming CONCACAF U20 World Cup Championships, which will kick-off on Saturday, February 22, and conclude on Sunday, March 8.
 
"I am grateful for this opportunity to represent my country and look forward to what this competition brings," commented Keshwar following the selection.
 
The goalkeeper was first invited to training camp with Trinidad and Tobago's senior women's team in 2016 as the team prepared for the CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying Championship. She was the starting keeper for Trinidad and Tobago's U17 women's team that captured third-place in the Caribbean Football Union Women's U17 CONCACAF Qualifiers in Puerto Rico. Keshwar was also the starting keeper for Trinidad and Tobago's U15 Girls' team that earned third-place at the U15 CONCACAF Championships in 2014 on the Cayman Islands.

"We are incredibly proud to have Klil representing the school and the program in the CONCACAF U20 World Cup and wish Trinidad and Tobago the best of luck. We will be cheering them on from Brooklyn," said women's soccer Head Coach Justine Lombardi.
 
Keshwar was the starting goalkeeper for Trinidad and Tobago's U20 women's team that competed in the U20 women's CONCACAF and World Cup Qualifiers in 2018 as well. During the same year, Keshwar was invited to training camp with Trinidad and Tobago's senior women's football team for the Caribbean Football Union World Cup Qualifiers for CONCACAF '18. Additionally, she was invited to camp with the national senior women's squad for the Central American and Caribbean Games.
 
Trinidad and Tobago will play its first match of the respective tournament on Sunday, February 23, when it takes on Saint Kitts and Nevis inside Estadio Panamericano in San Cristobal at 12 p.m. EST.

Hope her potential is realised and nurtured
Coming from the school's 0-17 record, She probably has no fear of things getting worse. I hope.  :devil:

I won't comment on other selects, will try to stay positive.

The coaches will pick the best system to suit the best players and we go wear it to everybody party, till we can afford changes.Then we can afford multiple suits and maybe get invited to bigger fete.  ;D :beermug: :beermug:

If there was a legally binding agreement for compensation due to early contract termination then DL should be rightfully compensated. It would be sad to see the same lack of professionalism from this administration which was demonstrated with the last. This is pretty common for these type of events. Based on this development,  I remain a little skeptical of this new regime.
You mean there was a particularly new regime in TT (or anywhere else for that matter)  there was never any skepticism about ? Please tell, which one was that ?   :devil:

Even 17 is pushing it. Only a couple great ones made it past that age and phase. Ridiculous idea. The history, science and sense says No. Just the social aspect causes issues in all manners of life. This is well documented as a detriment to growth.
So what about the 17 and 18 year olds playing across Europe. Didn't a 17 year old score 2 for Barcelona this weekend. Or even closer to home.....does anyone remember a certain Dwight Yorke.
All those Signal Hill Championship teams....who you think they used to play against before they came to Trinidad ??
Don’t think you have ever seen 15 prodigies playing together anywhere. Prodigies and special talents do exist, but you talking about a team. In coming up playing with big men, did he play all positions ? Did everyone he play with was as good as him. Could you find 23 of that ilk across the Caribbean? Especially to make a team ( different positions) ? We trying to build a future snr National team, we can’t possibly burnout and injure the best possible prospects at every position, before they get to the important phase. Just an opinion based on studies and science.

Wish it was so easy to make another Yorke, Latas , Archibald or  Cummings.  Until we really know, will leave that to God.
add: Still it's very few, hardly ever a full team, even on a world level.

As is a team game, every positional performance and lack of, is inherently dependent on the other positions on the field. So as one critiques a Elite player performance, David in this case, then analysis must be made of which players he was surrounded by, as well as coaches instructions(if any). Since we not privy to coaches instructions or selections - who else available. We could only look at his supporting teammates. So who were they ? Were they observed to assist, support or enhance David in his position?

Guessing the laws and courts is really for small man. Let a small man try to withdraw money from his own account nah, he have to jump thru hoops.. tonneh
no more words !


" But the re­port went fur­ther in show­ing that the Sports Com­pa­ny had paid out over $13.4m in a court set­tle­ment and ex­pens­es dur­ing 2019. When asked to clar­i­fy this ex­pen­di­ture, Ca­ma­cho told Guardian Me­dia Sports, “There are num­ber of old mat­ters be­fore lit­i­ga­tion, dis­putes over amounts and quan­tum.” He went fur­ther in ex­plain­ing that a large chunk of that fig­ure went to one con­trac­tor who was su­ing the or­ga­ni­za­tion for more than dou­ble than that of which was set­tled."



"This effectively puts an end the $400 million LifeSport scandal, nearly five and half years after former prime minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar ended the programme because of fraud, theft, and allegations that the programme, which was supposed to empower at-risk youths away from crime through sport, was linked to people involved in criminal activity."

Hood unearthing talents for U-20 Concacaf Championships.
By Jonathan Ramnanansingh (Newsday).


T&T’s squad for next month’s Concacaf Women’s Under-20 Championships (February 15 – March 1) in Dominican Republic will mainly comprise of a new batch of foreign-based players and a handful of local talents, who have been training alongside national coach Richard Hood, over the past couple weeks.

At Hood’s first interaction with the media in his capacity, at the Ato Boldon Stadium, Couva, on Friday, he said the TT Football Association (TTFA) has been working with him to host several screening sessions, in an attempt to unearth new national team prospects. While these sessions have aided the seeding process, Hood believes there is still a lot of work to do if T&T is to make any impression at the Championships.

The national coach will host another training segment with all local-based T&T hopefuls over this weekend and will place great emphasis on Tobagonian players. While TTFA has already sourced ten foreign-based athletes, Hood will not have the opportunity to meet this bunch beforehand on home soil.[/u]

These North American-based players will arrive in Santo Domingo approximately 12 days prior to the competition’s start, where they will link up with the team coach and his domestic selection for a detailed training camp. This, according to him, will in fact, pose a competitive and preparatory challenge. However, he remains optimistic, although there have some reluctance from past players to rejoin the team.

We are trying to get some of these players (past) back into the pool to ensure that we have the best possible players going forward,” he said. “We anticipate the majority of the final selection would actually come from North America. It will be difficult. It’s good though that we’re having a ten-day camp leading into the tournament. We have ten days to work with them and get the entire team organised. That augurs well for us.”

« on: January 15, 2020, 11:03:16 AM »
Yes, I have taken the TTFF/KNVB National C in 2011 and it holds no value in other countries. The TTFF/KNVB National C is equivalent to US Soccer's Grassroots License. With the TTFA/KNVB National C I was only able to land a volunteer coaching position at a recreational club as no one was willing to recognize my license, even with a Bachelor of Arts in Sport Management from an American University.

However, I currently have my US A License as well as some European certifications, so I have had the opportunity to compare. From my experiences, I think our coaches would become more marketable with a Concacaf License.


https://www.guardian.co.tt/article-6.2.440069.617bb0abc7

From the article posted ( circa 2011), from even then to now, I am thinking the issues with our snr National teams is NOT due to lack of development and coaching. I observed 1 game of the Jnr National team in tournament about 3 years ago - was sitting with the then Ntl coach - and was quite disappointed at the quality of play. Players were definitely individually skilled, but the team game left much to be desired.
I always suspected our National team issues lately may have been selections (and/or selectors). No easy task by any means, but long term goals recognition, future progress and development,  and ability to see virtual team structure is a necessary requirement. Many may be misled ( i have) by early ability and flair in a growing youth which in many cases do not necessarily develop to maturity. I will admit not an easy task to monitor on a National scale, especially with many leaving on scholarships and many losing interest or being disillusioned with the Ntl team organization. Hopefully with this new incentive we can manage our fingers better able to read the braille.

Anton Corneal might know a few players in the US as he worked here a while. Andre Fortune Senior, Kendall Walkes,  and we have Stephen Hart in Canada... Marvin Andrews (Scotland).... Chris Birchall (UK)....

 :devil:

We need a Women team scout as well, maybe Mayless Johnson, she is based in Atlanta, I think and, Randy Waldrum is excellent... Lauryn Hutchinson (USA), Arin King (Canada)....

Good team regardless..



I imagine positive contact has already been made with most of those above, so there are no disappointments or surprises. Wouldn't like them to only discover their participation on this site.

How about while we fixing and developing locally now for the future, we recognize and utilize those that already has that foundation and developmental structure now, irregardless of wherever in the world they might be. Won't the tomorrow, quarterly, yearly and future be covered ?
Things like that do not get fixed overnight, and we have events coming up shortly. Plenty work, lot's of analsis and decision making, yet it seems the admin and support(Socawarriors.net included) up for it. Lots of volunteers seem ready to assist, won't strain the finances more than unusual. The football won't be  resuscitated for a few years anyway.

Every coach has their shtick. Some good some bad. One don’t have to in agreement with all their policies to learn from their successes. In my opinion, I do agree on some measure of discipline, examples, attitudes, etc..however to disregard talent, because they not on ones rules of law is kinda hypocritical on the we are all the same thoughts.
That’s he. And may work temporarily in development in Tobago, or may not. But won’t work for us out here.
I tend to learn from their positives and skip their negatives. In most cases, I don’t have to like or dislike who they are, they don’t care.

Unfortunately it has been our experience here, when the older heads let go, the clubs fail. In our case our young (30 to 40’s) although grownup in the organization. The open world beckons and tend to call on them for different life commitments. We are trying different strategies, but it mostly fall back on new older heads.

Jack agrees to pay Anand.
By Jada Loutoo (Newsday).


FORMER Independent Liberal Party (ILP) leader Jack Warner has agreed to pay a portion of the sum he was ordered to pay to compensate former attorney general Anand Ramlogan in 2015.

Warner also agreed to withdraw his appeal of Justice Robin Mohammed’s ruling.

Hearing of the appeal came up before Justices Allan Mendonca, Alice Yorke-Soo Hon, and Prakash Moosai yesterday and attorneys for both men said they had entered into a consent order.

As part of the compromise, Ramlogan agreed to waive part of the judgment sum, which had amounted to close to $900,000. This brought an end to the lawsuit.

In his ruling, Mohammed held that Warner had defamed his former cabinet colleague in a speech in October 2013.

Speaking on an ILP platform in the run-up to the local government elections, Warner claimed Ramlogan owned 51 properties bought by corrupt means during his tenure as AG.

Warner was ordered to pay $600,000 in general and aggravated damages and $200,000 in exemplary damages. The costs of the defamation claim were quantified at $94,000.

Warner was represented by Asha Watkins-Monteserin. Ganesh Saroop appeared for Ramlogan.

i streamed the news tonight and there was a segment of the news where it was stated that he got leave from the club to coach TT and still maintain his position at the club, at least that is what was made clear in the newscast.
If so, that would be almost perfect. Good all the same.

ps: I think this is a good appointment, especially where he was able to get some experience, and now, will also be working with junior and development teams. Hopefully his understudy of Hart will pay off for our local youths, especially with player relations.
