Aye Fakoory, why don't you sack yourself and stop this fakoory. I said in the beginning that the people that sponsored your team should sue your arse for just being you. When are you going to win something and why are you in the game? What is your purpose for owning a team?  :pissedoff: :banginghead: :cursing: :'( :bs:

Rangers and MIC-Institute of Technology team up to offer players football and tertiary education skills.
ttproleague.com.


Professional football club St. Ann's Rangers and Metal Industries Company Institute of Technology (MIC-IT) have teamed up in a historic partnership that provides an incredible two-fold opportunity to young men and women of Trinidad and Tobago.

The first of its kind in the Trinidad and Tobago Pro League era, the focus of the partnership – which will initially run for three years – is geared towards allowing aspiring professional footballers an opportunity to continue their education and technical skills up to tertiary level and beyond.

As a result, the football club will now be called MIC-IT St. Ann’s Rangers or simply MIC-IT STAR ahead of the new 2017 TTPL season which kicks off in late May.

“[The partnership] is destined for greatness,” said MIC-IT St. Ann’s Rangers general manager Jason Spence during the unveiling of the partnership last Friday at the MIC Institute of Technology head coach in Macoya.

MIC Institute of Technology, an accredited institution which offers training to men and women from age 17 to 50, is an agency of the Ministry of Education Tertiary Education Division. Its mission is to be a catalyst for developing national technical and vocational competencies for competitive industries through quality training, innovation, manufacturing and engineering products and services.

The partnership will benefit players of MIC-IT STAR Under-19 team, Women’s Team and the professional team.

Shem Alexander, Sports Specialist at MIC-IT, and close friend Adrian Romain were the architects of the MIC-IT STAR partnership.

Alexander, a former midfielder at St. Ann’s Rangers, said the partnership will be mutually beneficial to both parties. He said the Sports and Mentorship departments along with the Marketing Division of MIC-IT are always committed to the new and innovative means of enhancing trainee life and helping to attract more trainees into their programme.

“Both MIC-IT and St. Ann’s Rangers are fully committed in pooling our resources to achieve our goals,” added Alexander.

Alexander also said that Richard Fakoory, who co-owns the St. Ann’s-based club with Richard Piper, “wasn’t only excited about the number of youths he would see turning away from a life of crime, but also the opportunity for them to be educated.”

MIC-IT has achieved a number of strategic partnerships with the Government of Trinidad and Tobago; the ICON Institute and the Chamber of Crafts and Trades, Germany; the American Welding Society (AWS) and other accredited institutions.

The benefits of such partnerships define MIC Institute of Technology as a training institution, offering programmes such as the Journeyman National Skills Development Programme (NSDP); Master Craftsman certifications in Mechanical, Electrical/Electronic and Mechatronics; Helping You Prepare for Employment (HYPE); Industrial Craft Programme (ICP); Multi-Sector Skills Training (MuST); Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR); Engineer-In-Training and other specialised and customised training programmes.

“Wouldn’t it be great as a player to win the league or qualify for the Caribbean Club Championship – which is definitely one of our goals –along with graduating as a qualified tradesman with a skill for life?” Spence questioned.

The MIC-IT STAR general manager added that MIC-IT and St. Ann’s Rangers have seen the positive and profound impact that merging their resources can have on the young population in their “confidence, their self-esteem, on society, on crime, and on their future.”

“On the part of MIC-IT, the highly focused technical trainee is given an opportunity to express him or herself in the beautiful game of football at the highest level in Trinidad and Tobago—the TT Pro League.

“Now that these two very experienced, durable, ambitious entities have come together… football wins… tertiary education wins… and more importantly, the trainee or player will come out the overall winner.

“MIC-IT St. Ann’s Rangers is now offering this opportunity to all young persons in Trinidad and Tobago who have an inner desire to achieve and develop holistically—on and off the field; in and out of the classroom,” concluded Spence.

Alexander meanwhile said MIC-IT STAR hopes to tap in on income generating opportunities such as gate fees, transfer fees of players, sale of branding materials and sponsorship.

Anthony Streete, who led the Pro League outfit to an improved seventh-place finish last season, will continue as coach of MIC-IT STAR for the 2017 season.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Saint Lucia beats Rangers 2-1 in football friendly

Saint Lucia beats Rangers 2-1 in football friendly
By Terry Finisterre (St. Lucia News Online)


Saint Lucia got the Jamaal Shabazz era underway on Friday with a 2-1 friendly win over Trinidad and Tobago club team, Horquetta Rangers.

Shabazz, the Trinidad and Tobago national, has previously coached Guyana to their biggest leaps in the FIFA rankings, and has coached several Saint Lucians during his time in the managerial ranks of the Trinidad and Tobago Pro League.

He got his tenure underway by deploying a 4-4-2 formation, featuring four under-23 players: goalkeeper Vino Barclett, and outfield players Djal Augustin, Alvinus Myers, and Melvin Doxilly. Overseas-based professionals, captain Zaine Pierre, Kurt Frederick, Otev Lawrence, Lester Joseph, and Andrus Remy lined up with Jevick MacFarlane and Antonio Joseph.

Saint Lucia looked bright in the first half, but did not capitalise on the chances they created. Kurt Frederick converted from the penalty spot in the 15th minute to give the home team a 1-0 halftime lead.

A defensive lapse in the 50th minute gave Tyrone Charles the opportunity to equalise for the Trinidadians. But just five minutes later, up popped Andrus Remy to convert for the home team.

According to Shabazz, he was pleased to see some of the positives that came out of Friday’s match, but he recognises that there is a lot of work yet to be done.

Saint Lucia football completes a second 2-1 win over Rangers
By Terry Finisterre (St. Lucia News Online)


Trinidad and Tobago-based defender Kurt Frederick remained consistent, and boosted his attacking reputation, by getting on the scoresheet for Team Saint Lucia in a second straight win over La Horquetta Rangers, a club in the Trinidad and Tobago Professional League.

Saint Lucia won 2-1 again, at the Daren Sammy Cricket Ground, 28-year-old Frederick and Under-23 player Alvinus ‘Pogba’ Myers scoring for the home team.

Myers is one of several U23-eligible players who have featured over the course of the two friendlies, the first two matches under former Guyana coach, Jamaal Shabazz.

Midfielder Djal Augustin, who is at college in the United States, made his senior debut on Friday. Defender Sebastian Ribot, who plays professionally in Spain, made his debut off the bench on Friday, and was introduced in the starting lineup on Sunday. Also in the starting 11 on Sunday was forward Noah ‘Lucky’ Nicholas. Meanwhile, Gabriel ‘Gelco’ Biscette and Jardel Harrow came in off the bench on Sunday.

Saint Lucia plays a third match against Rangers on Tuesday afternoon at the Sab Playing Facility in Vigie, Castries.

FYI

La Horquetta Rangers was originally called Superstar Rangers, had a name change a few year later to St. Ann's Rangers and now the Club is known as La Horquetta Rangers.

Rangers promises to release players for T&T team.
By Walter Alibey (T&T Guardian).


T&T Pro League campaigners La Horquetta Rangers is re-confirming its commitment to assisting the T&T team ahead of the World Cup qualifying play-offs, by making its players available, but only after the team competes in a high-stake tournament that starts next month.

The club's owner Richard Ferguson is challenging national coach Terry Fenwick and his men, to a $100, 000-winner-takes all match, and he said he is prepared to up the stakes by an additional $100, 000 if permission is given for spectators to be allowed to enter the playing venue.

That match, it is understood could take place early next week, but Ferguson, in a move to convey his commitment to the country, sought to clear the air on his reasons for not allowing his players to train with the national team, via a letter to the National Team Director Richard Piper yesterday.

In his letter, he said: "We take this opportunity to thank you for considering our players in regards to training with the national team coach, however, after discussions with the club's Board of Directors and coaching staff, it was decided that it was not prudent to release the requested players at his juncture. Please consider the following reasons: (1) We expect to be playing in a league in April with significant prize money and it is very important that we prepare for this league vigorously.

Therefore, we need to have full access to all of our players to compete effectively. (2) Our coaches have developed an extensive training, nutrition and fitness programme for our players for the upcoming competition, and as a result, the absence of key players for such a long time would affect the plans of the club adversely. In addition, our players have been training together for over two years and they are very fit."

Ferguson and Fenwick have been at loggerheads over Rangers reluctance to release its players outside of the FIFA window.

However, with no football taking place for the past year or so, Ferguson has been the subject of much criticism for his stance, while Fenwick's unit remains in dire need of reinforcement.

Rangers, in its letter also pointed out that his team possesses many talents that will be an asset to the country. "However, we stand ready to assist the national senior team with their preparations for the upcoming international competitions. We suggest that we play the national team a practice game where coach Fenwick can see the team in action, and he can then select the players he wishes to play for T&T."

"You should also note that we have expanded our squad over the last 10 months, and we currently have players that coach Fenwick has never seen before and they would be an excellent option for the national team coach to consider."

The T&T team is preparing for its Concacaf World Cup qualifying match against Guyana on March 25 in the Dominican Republic. So far, the team has played an international friendly against the USA and lost 7-0 and last Saturday recorded an 8-0 victory against Orange XI of Tobago.

A few weeks before the qualifier, the  owner agrees to release his players. His ego-driven rationale makes no sense.

And this from a man who was hell bend on becoming the federation prez. these local trinis are so loco and deranged, and if any stranger were to be looking in on this kind of manic behavior which is nothing less of astonishing, they would be lost for words as to how these people do business, and from captain to cook, they all lack the ability to be the sobering voice. do these people ever really took serious thought as to their destructive behavior?? it’s rather embarrassing.

Rangers players get green-light to join Eve's training.
By Walter Alibey (T&T Guardian).


Permission was granted for five players from T&T Pro League outfit La Horquetta Rangers to represent the T&T Senior National team under new coach Angus Eve, at the CONCACAF Gold starting from July 2.

Rangers owner Richard Ferguson immediately said yes to a request by national team manager Adrian Romain, for midfielders Aikim Andrews and Jamal Creighton: strikers - Keston George and Isaiah Lee: and defender Ross Russell Jr to be given time off without loss of status or earning. Ferguson has maintained throughout that he never had a problem releasing his players to represent the country and has shown it by his immediate response to Romain's letter. Sacked national coach Terry Fenwick encountered difficulty as he requested the players outside of the required FIFA window.

Romain's letter stated: "Our Men's Senior National Team has qualified to participate in the Preliminary Stage of the 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup which will take place in the United States and starts on July 2nd with our first-round qualifier against Montserrat to be played at the DRV PNK Stadium in Ft Lauderdale, USA. Should we win that game, we advance to the Second Round of the qualification scheduled for July 6 at the same venue.

Once successful, we advance to the Group Stage of the Tournament which starts on July 10th and will run until the Gold Cup final on August 1st. I write to notify you that Aikim Andrews, Jamal Creighton, Keston George, Isaiah Lee and Ross Russell Jr have been selected in our provisional squad. The actual 23 man squad will be confirmed no later than Monday 28th June 2021 after which travel details will be finalised for those selected."

The players will add to a host of local players who have already been training with the team under Fenwick, but most of whom did not get a chance to play.

However, Eve, at a virtual press conference on Monday said as a stickler for local talent, he felt local players never got a fair chance.

The T&T Soca Warriors, recently booted out of the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers in only the first round, will be eager to make amends when they take on Montserrat in the opening match. Should they emerge from that match they will face either French Guiana or Cuba.

The team is expected to enter a residential camp from June 19 to 22.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

La Horquetta Rangers fully vaccinated.
T&T Guardian Reports.


More than three weeks after being the host of a virtual meeting of the T&T Football Association members to pursue vaccines for its members, Keiron Edwards, the General Manager of La Horquetta Rangers, is claiming his club is fully vaccinated.

Edwards in a release on July 22 said: "I Kieron Edwards, Terminix La Horquetta Rangers General Manager, would like to confirm that all players, coaches and ground staff of the team has either been fully vaccinated or have received their first dose of vaccination. This totals over 40 individuals that have taken their jab. Terminix La Horquetta Rangers is the first professional club where all persons have taken heed to the Prime Minister’s statement of ‘vaccinate to operate’"

It was only on July 6 that Edwards hosted a meeting at which he convinced the majority of the football membership to collectively encourage its members to avail themselves of the COVID-19 vaccines in order to restart football in the communities and in the country.

Following the meeting, Edwards said: "TTFA Member-Stakeholders consider the restart of football of all Leagues and Competitions in the country to be essential, with the full vaccination of footballers, coaches, technical staff, referees, and other related personnel, and would welcome working directly with the Ministry of Health to facilitate this exercise in the earliest possible timeframe.

The envisaged immunization would have all Members of our football fraternity visit the venues of the Ministry of Health to facilitate the exercise, similar to what has been done for the Chamber of Commerce, the TTMA, the Supermarket Association and other such entities."

The full vaccination of football members will also clear the way for the staging of the Ascension Invitational Football League which will cater for action among the Women's Football League (WoLF), T&T Pro League and Super League, the Regional Associations- Eastern Football Association, Northern FA, Southern FA, Central FA, Tobago FA and the Eastern Counties Football Union (ECFU), as well as Futsal and Beach Soccer.

La Horquetta Rangers leave for Caribbean tour.
By Nigel Simon (T&T Guardian).


Local professional club, Terminix La Horquetta Rangers, will continue preparations for the Normalisation Committee-led T&T Football Association (TTFA) T&T Premier League with a five-match tour to neighbouring Grenada, and St Vincent and the Grenadines from Sunday to March 20.

This means the Richard Ferguson-owned La Horquetta Rangers will not play their first two matches as scheduled in the Elite Football League having accepted the invitation by the Grenada Football Association, and St Vincent and the Grenadines Football Federation to play five practice matches against Caribbean nations, St Lucia, Grenada, and St Vincent and the Grenadines who are all preparing to resume their respective Concacaf Nations League campaign at the end of March.

Rangers, who ended in second place in the 2019 Ascension Tournament Football, behind the Defence Force before going all the way to the title last year will leave Sunday with a 24-man squad for the tour, the second such tour for Rangers, having made a tour of Grenada and St Lucia, in 2019.

Among the notable players selected by coach Dave Quamina are national senior team wingers Real Gill, and Ross Russell Jr, along with Tyrone Charles, Jevon Morris, Jamal Creighton, Ataulla Guerra, Kaihim Thomas, Tarik Lee, and Daniel Cyrus.

For the first stage of the tour in Grenada, the Quamina-coached Rangers who had their first couple of matches in the new T&T Elite Professional League rescheduled to accommodate the tour will kick off their campaign against St Lucia on March 7 before facing Grenada on March 10, and again on March 12.

The second and final phase of the tour will see Rangers coming up against St Vincent and the Grenadines in two encounters, firstly, on March 15, and then three days later on March 18, both in St Vincent.

Speaking at a training session earlier this week ahead of the team's departure said the tour is structured to help the players, both young and old as well as to provide them with a chance to gain experience ahead of the upcoming campaign.

"These kinds of tours can only help us have a firsthand look at how our players cope at this level of football as well as for us as a club to take in how things are done at an international level, and in general we intend to represent ourselves and the country to the best of our ability.

"We have a good core of young players, and this is a great opportunity for them as well to stake their claims for selection on the team and we expect them to snatch these opportunities with both hands, as we intend to build on our recent past successes.

"In general, our preparations for the season have been good and we are anxious for the return to professional football in T&T to secure silverware high on our agenda," said Quamina.

Ferguson also welcomes the chance to expose his team to some international level of competition ahead of the start of the new local season saying: "It's always a pleasure and challenge to play teams that are much better than us because it will also help us a team to improve and as individuals."

Guerra fires La Horquetta Rangers past St Lucia.
By Sherdon Pierre (T&T Newsday).


FORMER national attacking midfielder Ataullah Guerra scored twice in the first half to seal a comfortable 2-0 victory for Terminix La Horquetta Rangers in a friendly football match against St Lucia on Tuesday at the Fond Playing Field, St Patrick, Grenada.

Rangers dominated the match against their hosts who are coached by TT's leading all-time goal scorer, Stern John.

In the 12th minute, Guerra collected a pass and turned on his defender before calmly slotting home for the early lead.

Rangers attacked purposefully down the left flank with Real Gill, 20, terrorising the St Lucian defenders, setting up several goalscoring chances for Guerra and striker Tyrone Charles. Guerra had an excellent opportunity in the final minute of the first half, but his shot was blocked.

Guerra wouldn’t be denied in stoppage time of the first half. Gill's corner fell kindly for Guerra who spanked home a ferocious volley into the top corner, giving goalkeeper Vino Barclett no chance.

John's halftime talk seemed to motivate his troops as they lifted their performance in the second half, especially in the attacking third. Though stretched at times, Rangers sat comfortably absorbing the pressure from their opponents. The pairing of Jevon Morris and Leslie Russell was solid in defence.

The St Lucians had their best opportunity to score in the 66th minute through Sebastien Ribot's direct free-kick on the edge of the 18-yard box, but it was expertly saved by goalie Jabari St Hillaire. The lanky custodian had other saves to make but none to greatly threaten his team's 2-0 advantage.

Rangers head coach Dave Quamina would be pleased with his team's execution against international counterparts.

Rangers' preseason Caribbean tour continues Friday when they face Grenada, before replaying them two days later. They will then do battle against S. Vincent and the Grenadines next Wednesday and Saturday.

Teams:

Terminix La Horquetta Rangers: Jabari St. Hillaire, Jesus Perez, Jevon Morris, Leslie Russell, Caleb Sturge, Real Gill, Jamal Creighton, Daniel David, Isaiah Lee, Ataulla Guerra, Tyrone Charles.

St Lucia: Vino Barclett, Melvin Doxilly, Shanoi Evans, Edd Fred, Lester Joseph, Andrus Remy, Alvinus Myers, Leaus Henville, Aaron Richard, Donavan Perpie, Saviola Elva.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Rangers let 2-goal lead slip in Grenada defeat.
T&T Guardian Reports.


T&T’s Terminix La Horquetta Rangers let a 2-0 half-time lead slip and fell to a 2-3 loss to host Grenada in the second match of their five-match tour to neighbouring Grenada and St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) at Fond Playing field at Sauteurs, St Patrick, Grenada on Friday.

Coming off a 2-0 win over the Stern John-coached St Lucia national team at the same venue on Tuesday night behind first-half items from former USA-based national midfielder Ataulla Guerra the Dave Quamina-coached Rangers were confident of another positive result as they continued their preparations for the Normalisation Committee-led T&T Football Association (TTFA) T&T Premier League, which kicked off on Friday.

Twelve (12) minutes into the encounter, out-of-favour T&T international Tyrone Charles fired Rangers into a 1-0 when he reacted quickly to a headed-down pass from captain Jamal Creighton and turned on his stronger right foot to hammer home his shot off the glove of goalkeeper Trishawn Thomas on his near post.

Seven minutes later, Charles turned provider for his team’s second goal, when he raced to the right byline and squared the ball back on top of the 18-yard box where teammate, Real Gill, collected calmly, before curling his right-footed effort around defender Jamil Rocastle and into the far corner past dive of goalkeeper Thomas for a comfortable 2-0 cushion.

However, Rangers suffered a meltdown in the second half, Grenada stepped up their physical play and intensity and scored three goals without reply to snatch the unlikely win.

First, Romar Frank blasted in his team’s first item a minute after the restart when he collected a failed-headed clearance from Rangers defender Jesus Perez inside the 18-yard box to fire past Jabari St Hillaire from close range.

Kriston Julien then drew the hosts’ level in the 73rd minute when his left-footed shot sneaked under the dive of St Hillaire after a shot from substitute Joshua Isacc deflected off of Rangers defender Leslie Rusell, and into his path.

Two minutes from full-time Isaac completed the turn-around for Rangers when he collected a pass from a teammate just outside the penalty area, and ran at defender Daneil Cyrus, before unleashing a left-footed effort that whisked past the dive of St Hillaire and into the bottom left-hand corner of the goal to steal the win, the second in three matches after sharing a two-match series with St Lucia, winning the second encounter 2-0 on Sunday, after losing the opener 2-1.

Sunday (March 11), Rangers will have a chance to avenge their loss when they meet Grenada again at Victoria Park, Grenville from 4 pm.

The second and final phase of the tour will see Rangers coming up against St Vincent and the Grenadines in two encounters, firstly on Wednesday (March 15) and then three days later on Saturday (March 18), both in St Vincent.

The trio of Grenada, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines are using the encounters as part of their remaining CONCACAF Nations League (CNL) matches, as well, at the end of the month.

Grenada currently sits at the bottom of its League A Group D three-team round-robin pool with one point from three matches, four behind leaders El Salvador who have also played three matches while the USA is in the second spot with two matches to play.

In their final CNL match, Grenada will host the USA on March 24, needing a win to have any chance of avoiding demotion to League B.

Meanwhile, the St Lucians, head their three-team League C Group C table with a maximum of six points after wins against Dominica, 1-0 away, and 2-0 at home over Anguilla, and will complete their campaign against Anguilla away on March 24, followed by a clash with Dominica at home in Castries on March 27. The pair of Anguilla and Dominica have two points after two matches.

Like Grenada and St Lucia, SVG resume CONCACAF Nations League at the end of March as well and currently sits at the bottom of their four-team League B Group D round-robin series with one point from four matches after earning a 2-2 draw at home with group leader Nicaragua (ten points).

In their other matches, SVG suffered defeats at home and away to second-placed T&T (nine points), 2-0 and 4-1, as well as a 1-0 loss on the road to the Bahamas and in their remaining matches, they travel to Nicaragua on March 24 before returning home to host the Bahamas, three days later.

Grenada come from behind to beat La Horquetta Rangers 3-2.
By Sherdon Pierre (T&T Newsday).


HOSTS Grenada recovered from a two-nil deficit to earn a 3-2 comeback victory against Terminix La Horquetta Rangers in the first of two meetings of the Pre-Season Tour 2023 on Friday at the Fond Playing Field, St Patrick, Grenada.

Rangers were full of confidence coming off a two-nil victory against St Lucia on Tuesday and it showed in their brisk passing and movements early in the match. The TT team scored two first-half goals yet again. This time was striker Tyrone Charles in the 13th minute who volleyed home from close range after captain Jamal Creighton challenged for a header from a corner that fell kindly for Charles. Grenada`s Goalkeeper Trishawn Thomas got a strong hand to the shot, but it was too powerful.

Six minutes later, Charles turned provider as he skilfully laid a pass to an unmarked Real Gill who controlled around the penalty spot to guide it home near post beating a helpless Thomas in goal.

It was a tale of two halves as Grenada fuelled by the energy of their home crowd capitalised on streaky defending from the visitors. Their resurgence began after pulling back a goal sixty seconds into the second half following a poor clearance From Rangers defender Jesus Perez that dropped into the path of Romar Frank who chested and volleyed past goalie Jabari St Hillaire.

The Spice Island tied the game in the 74th when forward Joshua Issac shot was blocked by defender Leslie Russell but Kriston Julien latched on to rebound to slip it under St Hillaire who could have done better with his effort.

Issac was a handful for the Rangers’ defence all night and he was rewarded for his efforts scoring in the 88th minute to seal the comeback victory 3-2. Both teams will meet again on Sunday before Rangers conclude the tour against St. Vincent and the Grenadines next Wednesday and Saturday.

Teams:

Terminix La Horquetta Rangers: Jabari St. Hillaire, Jesus Perez, Jevon Morris, Leslie Russell, Caleb Sturge, Real Gill, Jamal Creighton, Daniel David, Isaiah Lee, Ataulla Guerra, Tyrone Charles.
