Shannon Gomez earns Team of the Week honor
By Republic FC Communications


On Tuesday, the league headquarters announced Republic FC players Shannon Gomez and Darek Formella were named to the USL Championship Team of the Week for Week 4.

The SRFC duo were key contributors in Sacramento’s 3-1 win over Las Vegas Lights FC at Heart Health Park on May 12. The win was the second in as many matches for the boys in Old Glory Red to kickoff the 2021 regular season.

Gomez finished the contest with one assist – setting up his sides’ opening goal – when the defender delivered a ball into the box that found Formella who slammed his strike into the back of the net. Gomez also completed 38 of 42 passes, was credited with two key passes and collected four interceptions against the Pacific Division opponent.

This is Gomez’s first Team of the Week selection since earning a spot during the 2018 season for Week 18.

Formella was also named to this week’s Team of the Week after the Polish playmaker notched one goal, contributed one assist and registered five key passes against Lights FC. Formella’s strike was the opening goal of the game after Shannon Gomez picked out Formella in the box who fired his effort on target and into goal. Darek also set up his sides’ third and final goal when the forward spotted Jaime Villarreal near the penalty spot and Formella delivered a ball that Villarreal merely had to steer on-target.

This is Darek’s first Team of the Week honor this season after earning the accolade three times in 2020 – Weeks 4, 8 and 15.

lets hope he get a call up from terry

By San Antonio FC Communications


San Antonio FC has signed defender Shannon Gomez pending league and federation approval, the club announced today. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“We are pleased to add Shannon to the SAFC community,” said SAFC Head Coach Alen Marcina. “He is a dynamic wingback with exceptional speed who is very good in defensive duals. His team-first mentality, ultra-competitiveness, and demonstration of resilient behaviors throughout his career fit our team identity.”

Gomez joins SAFC after spending the previous four seasons with Sacramento Republic FC in the USL Championship. A pivotal member of the Republic squad over that span, Gomez amassed 80-plus appearances during his time in Sacramento, recording over 6,000 minutes played. Gomez recently surpassed 100 professional games played which started in 2015 with W Connection Football Club in his home country of Trinidad and Tobago.

Following his time with W Connection, Gomez joined New York City FC if Major League Soccer where he spent the 2016 and 2017 seasons prior to be loaned out to the Pittsburgh Riverhounds of the USL Championship in 2017.

The 25-year-old has appeared in CONCACAF Champions League and Open Cup matches along with his league appearances during his career. The defender has represented Trinidad and Tobago at the full international level, receiving his first callup to the full national team in 2015. Gomez has also represented Trinidad and Tobago at the U-17, U-20, U-21 and U-22 levels.

Gomez will wear No. 22 for the club.

Warrior Profile: Shannon Gomez giving his all for the Red, White and Black
By Jonathan Ramnanansingh (T&T Newsday)


Right back Shannon Gomez was recalled to the national senior team in 2021 after a five-year hiatus. Since then, he’s worked assiduously to now become a regular face in the set-up.

Gomez, 26, was part of the Trinidad and Tobago men’s football team which churned out back-to-back victories against Curacao and El Salvador in the Concacaf Nations League A recently.

Wins in their two upcoming matches against Guatemala at home (October 13) and away to Curacao, four days later, will affirm T&T a spot in the quarter-finals, and draw them closer to a possible berth at the prestigious Copa America next year.

The San Antonio FC (United Soccer League) player has one goal and a couple of assists for his nation and wants to use their last two victories as fuel to continue striving towards returning T&T to the top of the Caribbean.

With a recent jump in the FIFA rankings, which carried T&T into the top 100 nations, from 102 to 98th, Gomez wants more.

“I’d like to see T&T football continue making strides, the recent jump in the FIFA rankings is good but I want us going back to being a powerhouse in Caribbean football.

“Not only here but internationally as well, with teams wanting to play us. Seeing T&T go back on that international map, with respect, it takes time, but I want to be involved and contribute, to give 110 per cent for the red, white and black,” he said.

He hailed the Nations League’s recent results as a positive step but Gomez is hell-bent on consistency. The winger wants T&T to regain their competitive respect in the world of football.

He hopes these results, and those to come, inspire the younger generation to keep working.

“I want to inspire another young one or generation to take up that mantle when it’s that time to carry T&T football to greater heights. That’s what I want to see.

“With me being in the set-up, I want to enjoy flying the flag, but also winning at a high rate, playing against top opposition that allows us to get the best possible mix, allow people who are eligible to represent us.”

Looking ahead at the upcoming contests, Gomez said the mentality in T&T’s camp is highly motivating, and he believes they can carry that winning momentum into the next stage.

Six points is the only goal for Gomez right now.

“It’s important to pick up maximum points to put us in the best situation to qualify for the quarters. It would be a massive achievement to be much closer to Copa America.

“Just having an opportunity to play amongst the best in the region. It’s important to put ourselves in the driver’s seat in the group. That would allow us to maintain our place in league A and potentially qualify for the quarter-final round and we need to put our best foot forward.”

When asked what formula would achieve such success, Gomez said it must be a total team effort.

“We have to check our egos at the door and let’s come in and give it our all; play with grit and respect. Grasp the opportunity to make somebody proud. These are things that I strive to do and a lot of guys have the same goals for themselves.

“It felt good to put ourselves in a position to stand up to teams. There was a time when teams feared us. Allowing ourselves to feel and do that will be the ultimate feeling. Contributing towards it will allow us to do that.”

Gomez started playing football at a young age with Waterloo Institute then transferred to a minor league club St Mary’s United from Freeport/Carapichaima, where he grew up.

He transferred to San Juan Jabloteh from age 11 to 17. During those years, Gomez played for St Augustine Secondary “Green Machine” in the Secondary Schools Football League and captained them to the Coca-Cola Intercol title in 2013.

He played national U17 and U20 football and climbed the ranks.

In 2015, he transferred to W Connection and played half a season with the club. That year, however, he received his first national call-up, and debut, against Panama, under then-coach Stephen Hart.

The next season, he went to trial to New York City FC in MLS, signed a contract on loan from Connection, went through a tough injury that same year, and while recovering from the injury, the US club decided to make it a permanent deal and they bought him fully from Connection.

Gomez spent the 2016 and 2017 seasons there and that’s how he started his career in the US.

In 2018, he moved to Sacramento Republic (USL) and played four seasons there until 2021. Last season signed with San Antonio FC and is now into his second year.
