11 overseas players in Women’s squad.
By: Nigel Simon (Guardian).
[/size]

Eleven overseas based players have been included in a 20-member T&T team by national coach Marlon Charles for the 2006 Concacaf Women’s Gold Cup which will take place in the United States from Sunday.
Included in the 11 is 16-year-old Atlanta-born utility Sadjr Williams, whose father is a T&T national.
Williams was also selected to the Under-20 women’s team earlier in the year but did not acquire her passport in time to play in the tournament.
However, she is now in possession of her T&T passport and eager to represent the twin Island Republic.
Among the notable overseas players in the team are forwards Aveann Douglas of Munroe Community College, Ahkeela Mollon of the University of South Carolina and defenders Katrina Meyer of Murray State University and Anastasia Prescott of the University of Mobile and Canadian-born Micah Mahabirsingh of the Thornhill Cobras in Toronto.
Maylee Attin-Johnson is still recovering from knee surgery and was not included in the team.
The local women will continue to train at the UWI Ground, St Augustine daily before departing for the US on Friday.
The third edition of the Women’s Gold Cup will see Canada, Jamaica, Mexico, Panama, T&T and USA competing for the title along with two guaranteed spots in the 2007 Fifa Women’s World Cup in China.
In first round action, Panama plays Jamaica and Mexico faces T&T, both at Tropical Park Stadium in Miami, Florida on Sunday.
The winners of these two first round games will then advance to the semifinals of the event with the winner of Panama/Jamaica match meeting Canada, while the winner of the Mexico/T&T will meet reigning defending champions, USA.
The semifinals take place on Wednesday November 22 at The Home Depot Center on the campus of California State University.
Tournament play concludes with the Concacaf Women’s Gold Cup Final and a third-place play-off game on November 26, also at The Home Depot Center in Carson, California. The Champion team and the runner-up will automatically qualify to next year’s Fifa Women’s World Cup in China while the third-place finisher will face Japan (Asian Football Confederation) in a home-and-away play-off for the final berth.

Soca Princesses begin qualifying preparation.

Soca Princesses begin qualifying preparation
By Ian Prescott (Express).


Hoping for more warm-up games

With most of the major CONCACAF teams already deep in preparation, Trinidad and Tobago’s senior national women’s team this week began full preparation for the upcoming World Cup qualifying. CONCACAF qualifying for the World Cup is due to begin in 2014, although no date has yet been set.

The 2015 Women’s World Cup will be held in Canada, and local experts believe that Trinidad and Tobago have their best chance of qualifying for their first World Cup this time around. Expansion of the Women’s World Cup from 16 to 24 teams, has seen CONCACAF being given an additional automatic qualifying spot.

CONCACAF is guaranteed to have at least four representatives for the World Cup, hosts Canada and three automatic qualifiers. A fifth CONCACAF team will also qualify for a playoff against the third-placed team in the South America region.

World champions USA and top-10 ranked Canada traditionally dominate CONCACAF women’s football, which is regarded as being of a higher standard than South America (CONMEBOL), where Brazil dominate.

South America has been given just two automatic qualifying spots, and a playoff spot against the fourth-placed CONCACAF qualifiers. With Canada qualifying as host, and the USA almost guaranteed another spot, it leaves two automatic qualifying spots and a playoff berth up for grabs among the other CONCACAF contenders, including Mexico, Costa Rica, Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica and possibly Haiti.

Under coaches Marlon Charles and Anton Corneal, the locally-based contingent of the national team has been keeping fit. However, the training schedule has been increased to four times a week.

“We have been training all along and just keeping fit,” Charles said, “But, we have only really began the programme for the 2015 World Cup (qualification) this week.”

Charles expects to have a full complement of players by mid-December, when several players, who are based in the United States at college, will return home for the vacation break.

“We will be able to train as a group them and really get to do what we wanted as a team,” he said.

T&T have not had any international matches since August, when they played unbeaten against club teams on a tour of England. That trip was sponsored by the Ministry of Sport. On the other hand, the USA have played unbeaten in 16 matches this season, winning 13 and drawing three. Also busy have been Canada, Panama, Costa Rica and Guatemala.

“They say that next year things will be better in terms of matches,” Charles said. “But, we’ll wait and see.”

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

From what i'm reading here this does not sound good at all,we already start off on the wrong foot and is Marlon and Corneal going to be blamed for everything in the end.

Imagine all those other teams are deep in preparation for this tournament and we just doing some training four times a week without the majority of the women who going to actually play.It's WC qualification we talking about,look how the men start putting things in place and they looking at 2018,these women suppose to be ready for next year and nothing is being done as yet.

Again is the women may be it's not important,when was the last time these women played together,they will get a couple games/tournaments before the qualifying tournament and tell themselves they ready.

The women teams in general get the short end of the stick. If by a fluke we get to host the women's WC that will change, but otherwise is guava season for the senior women's team. When will it end.

Agreed. Sounds too novelty like..

Based on my research, this team actually has a good chance of making the WC. It will be them fighting Costa Rica for the 3rd spot. There is also a playoff for the 4th place team. I think the hex will look like this.. If there is a hex:

USA
MEX
T&T/CR
HAI
GUA/JAM

TT has a decent set of NCAA players. Also, many of the girls played in the under 17 WC in 2010. Taking this into consideration.. TT may even be better than CR on paper. Dont be surprised if TT women make history.

      Deeks, Women's Football needs it's own office,admin,Secretary,Technical Director etc etc TTFA can't afford that,i remember when Dr Iva Glouden was in charge things used to look organized,one thing good about the Women's program they assit players with scholarships,is years now Coaches have been the scapegoats for the admin shortcomings.

Its obvious you glanced over my comment. I said "TT may even be better than CR on paper". The keyword here is "may"..Its called figurative language Coops..  You make it sound as if CR is far ahead of TT. In fact, they are not. CR and TT are on the same level. Check the last Gold cup campaign, Check the current ranking, etc.. You will see there is not much that separates TT and CR.

Regardless, this is probably their best ever chance to make the WC. We will see how they fare in the 2014 Gold cup.

       I hear you,what i'm trying to say is how prepared are we?from the initial report all the countries involved are way ahead in their preparation for this qualifying round,it doesn't matter where we are in rankings.

Okay. Yeah I agree that we are not as prepared. We all seen how the big teams are staying prepared. I think this TT team will find their legs quickly.. Just imagine we are nowhere prepared as USA, MEX and CAN. But much more prepared than the GUA, HAI, JAM and even CR.

Our college girls will make the difference. Many of them played in the under 17.. They are more mature now and have trained in the NCAA environment.

Camp opens very soon (next week I believe). CFU first round is April 7th-14th. The women need to show their CFU competition that they are the team to beat & serve notice to the likes of Costa Rica & Mexico that they will be gunning for them. :cheers: :cheers:

  The girls have begun training 3-4 times a week.However , an average of about 7 players attend each session .Min. of Sp[orts , Anil Roberts seems to be part of the technical staff now , working on the team's fitness .The whole set-up looks like a joke .The team was scheduled to play an American University team (male ) two days ago but could not field a team .
The U-20 team is currently in camp , training twice daily .Camp will break on the weekend . :-[

Is the poor turn out because many of the senior women are on the U20 also and the U20 tournament is in a couple week the players attend the U20 training?

Is Mollon, Attin-Johnson, St. Louis, Mascall present with the Senior Team?

Don't forget Ya Ya Kordner & Arin King  :wavetowel: To name two more regular contributors.

I was thinking the same thing Elan (re 20's that are on the sqaud yet immersed in their own camp). It's funny the Warriors have a camp & everyone and their brother is all over who what why etc etc etc... Yet the Women have a camp and it's like it's none existent :banginghead:. We have to change that culture !!!!
This is Trinidad's best chance to qualify for a World Cup with Canada hosting as they are not involved in the qualifying rounds and with 2015 WWC going from 16 to 24 teams it opens up another Concacaf spot. I can't believe the poor turnouts none-the-less  >:(

CFU's are around the corner in April. The bigger question is why are there not more senior's out ?

The U20s have a very good chance of qualifying also. But again, the preparation is today for tomorrow.

For the senior women team to have a good chance to qualify for the World Cup TTFF should get Stephen Hart involve in some capacity as the present coaching staff have proven they don't have the tactical coaching knowledge to compete at the international level.

 None of the senior girls are on the U-20 team ,so they are not in camp . Mollon is not part of the team at present .There are one or two girls that are still out of the country .The girls just don't appear to be too motivated so they train when they feel to or are able to .The majority of them know that they will be on the team whether they train hard or not at all .

That's the :bs: and why women's soccer in T&T will continue to struggle. It shows on the field, women vs our girls.

That's the :bs: and why women's soccer in T&T will continue to struggle. It shows on the field, women vs our girls.

Nah, don't dump it all on the girls now. The TTFF is so caught up what their restructureing getting some kind of order on the menside side. IT APPEARS that the women side of this equation is not getting full attention. Plain and simple.

        Women Football in T&T don't get the attention it deserves and that's a fact,at times the admin is blamed,at times the Coaches/technical staff is blamed and at times the players are blamed,really and truely it's a combination of all.
        Look at the kind of money spending on Football/Facilities etc u never hear of anything for Women,check the Seminars/Clinics going on by foreign Coaches/staff none is geared towards Women.

They were training over the Christmas break at home, but only a couple girls come out ever so often from what I've heard. Maybe the U20s inspired them to come out in full force.

Take a read here.

The 2015 Women’s World Cup will be held in Canada, and local experts believe that Trinidad and Tobago have their best chance of qualifying for their first World Cup this time around. Expansion of the Women’s World Cup from 16 to 24 teams, has seen CONCACAF being given an additional automatic qualifying spot.

CONCACAF is guaranteed to have at least four representatives for the World Cup, hosts Canada and three automatic qualifiers. A fifth CONCACAF team will also qualify for a playoff against the third-placed team in the South America region.


Well considering how we have had very positive results versus Costa Rica in the past year & even with Mexico as far back as the Pan American games IMHO I see no reason why we should not capture at least one spot. However Mexico has been playing top world ranked teams to ensure they continue to be a worthy opposition in any tournament they play in. These extra spots by no means are a given as we still have to go through CFU's in April & May. We need to trounce everyone we play in CFU to make a statement that we are ready to make the leap to the coveted WWC.

The ministry of sport needs to ensure that the best players available are brought into Trinidad right away to start to have the team begin to gel. I hope to god that every player is working out over and above the training on their fitness. Good luck ladies as April is just around the corner.


Cheers   19
