T&T women lose to Dominican Republic with last kick of match

T&T women lose to Dominican Republic with last kick of match
By Ian Prescott (T&T Express)


Trinidad and Tobago senior women’s footballers fell to a dramatic 2-1 defeat to hosts Dominican Republic in the first of a two-match series played last night at the Estadio Centroamericano.

With the very last kick of the match, Dominican Republic midfielder Manuela Laredo stole the win with a long-range free kick which saw the ball sail over everyone and bounce past T&T goalkeeper Kimika Forbes, before finding the far corner of the net. The winning goal came three minutes into added-on time.

Until the late drama, the main concern for newly confirmed head coach Kenywne Jones was that his Women Warriors had failed to score more than one goal in his three matches in charge and have also not created many clear chances.

Jones maintained the starting core of his team, but also gave newcomers Asha James and Chelsi Jadoo a start, along with returning Kedie Johnson. It was a first defeat under Jones for the Women Warriors, who also drew last month’s pair of home friendly internationals with visiting Panama.

There were first half chances for both sides, yesterday, although the Dominican Republic came closest to scoring with a goal bound shot on either flank, forcing T&T keeper Forbes into action to keep her team level.

For T&T, yesterday’s best first half chances saw former captain Maylee Attin-Johnson and veteran striker Kennya “Ya Ya” Cordner both shooting tamely and straight at keeper Claudia Torres from inside the penalty area.

T&T opened the second half with captain Karyn Forbes putting a free-kick on goal and forcing keeper Torres to fan away the goal-bound shot.

But it was the home team who took a 1-0 lead in the 50th minute, with the striker Vanessa Kara having only to re-direct a square pass to beat the T&T goalkeeper from a few yards out, after the midfielder Lucia Marte far too easily eluded left-side T&T markers Johnson and Jadoo.

The lead lasted just five minutes. T&T were level at 1-1 via a gentle, but accurate penalty from James, the Tobago-born college student, who is coming off a season where she scored 14 goals for West Texas A&M in the United States and was named on the All-State second team. Former Norway-based striker Cordner won the spot-kick when bundled over by huge central defender Brianne Reid as she ran into the penalty area.

However, when it looked like the match would end tied, the Dominican Republic took it all with the winning late goal.

T&T 22-member squad:

Tenisha Palmer, Naomie Guerra, Dennecia Prince, Kimika Forbes, Kennya Cordner, Collette Morgan, Karyn Forbes, Tsianne Leander, Rhea Belgrave, Jaasiel Forde, Maylee Attin-Johnson, Chelcy Ralph, Akyla Walcott, Raenah Campbell, Liana Hinds, Kedie Johnson, Asha James, Kaydeen Jack, Chelsi Jadoo, Victoria Swift, Lauryn Hutchinson, Chrissy Mitchell.

International Friendly #1 (Dominican Republic vs Trinidad and Tobago)

Thanks for this link.
Who was #11? (#s would have been helpful too).
I find they dominated large swathes of the middle of match [i'm sure stats on shots on goal etc would bear witness] and conceded a defensive blunder/ lapse in concentration goal. Having said that I didn't see any tactical adjustments or plan or anything to suggest that this team is going anywhere (yet)-- just individually talented / physically stronger players here and there that can string passes together...most-times.

Raenah Campbell.

I am more optimistic than pessimistic. Destination unknown, but there are some "easy" straightforward/fundamental fixes that can be made. Will present them after match #2.

It will be helpful if you provide some context to your statement, for a better understanding. Is it that you find her good but needs improvement? Is it that you find her sub standard? Is it that you are aware that she focuses on skills other than GK? To date she has been a stalwart for T&T between the uprights.

Jones looks for reaction from his team on Tuesday

Jones looks for reaction from his team on Tuesday
By Walter Alibey (T&T Guardian)


National women's football coach Kenwyne Jones will be hoping for a reaction from his charges on Tuesday when his team takes on the Dominican Republic in the second of two international friendly matches in Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic.

In the first game on Friday, the home team delivered a lethal blow in the last minute of the game to pull off a 2-1 triumph, but Jones who was confirmed as the full-time coach of the women's team on the same day, expected to contest the World Cup qualifiers in February next year, told the media via a virtual press briefing that he wants to see a reaction from the players from the training pitch, and not based on what happened in the game.

Jones has been attempting to stamp his philosophy and structure on the squad, which is still stashed with a blend of young and experienced players.

"At the pre-match press conference, I said the Dominican Republic was the perfect matchup to give us a test at this present time. The current indication by the squad is that they did not give us any problem that we did not foresee, I just thought it was a basic lack of discipline within our structure that facilitated the defeat.

"But I am glad it happened now because this is the point where you have to iron out a lot of stuff and gain the consistency needed for the upcoming qualifiers and we do have a lot of time to work on that and get it right.

"First of all, I would like to see a reaction from the team but not as far as the game but as far as today's (Sunday's) training session. We had a lot of analysis done, a lot of team meetings were held to discuss the things we didn't do correctly that we were supposed to.

"I am looking forward to the game, I definitely want to see a reaction from the team, in terms of being tactically disciplined in the way we set out our business. That is the most important thing.

"The good thing is that we have another game against the same opponent to put things right," Jones explained.

The T&T women's team is in Group F of the qualifiers, comprising Guyana, Nicaragua, Dominica and the Turks and Caicos Islands, a group that Jones considers to be manageable. However, his biggest task to date will be to lay down a structure of play that all players will be aware of in time for the qualifiers.

According to the former national striker, turn coach, "At this point in time, we are about 65 to 70 per cent there, but it is important that the core group of them understand the philosophy and structure of our tactical plan going forward. The others are going to come along and possibly in the near future, we will work with them as well because this is not a sprint it's a marathon."

Team captain Karyn Forbes said both she and her team were disappointed with the result last Friday, but they have to stay positive moving forward, saying: "We have to learn from this experience as this is how the game is, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose.

"We have a lot of new players and because of that some things might be repetitive, but as we move forward we will have the right squad and with the right squad we will be able to get things down pact, but right now everything is a learning experience."

Forbes was also high in praise for the confirmation of Jones as their full-time coach, saying they can learn a lot from his wealth of knowledge and the team will now, not have to learn different philosophies.

Dominican Republic denies T&T in 1-1 tie.
By Walter Alibey (T&T Guardian).


T&T Women footballers and their Dominican Republic counterparts played to a 1-1 tie on Tuesday in game-two of their international friendly series at the Estadio Panamericano in San Cristobal in the Dominican Republic.

However, the T&T team was unlucky not to concede another late item as they did in the opening match when Forbes went down awkwardly under a challenge from a right-side corner by Winibian Peralta. And when the ball rolled invitingly for Vanessa Kara, she drilled it back in for Alyssa Oviedo to simply touch the ball into the open net, but Kara somehow redirected the ball wide in the 76th minute.

That effort confirmed the 1-1 result (View Full Match Here), although both teams traded attempts at goal in the moments that followed.

The T&T girls were hoping to rebound from a last Friday's 1-2 loss and got a decent start with a possession game that should have resulted in at least a shot at goal. During an early build-up, Maylee Attin-Johnson threaded a ball through to an unmarked Raenah Campbell in the Dominican Republic defence, but her control let her down.

Lucia Marie later stormed down the right flank in the 18th minute and her centre was spilt by Forbes, pushing Marie's cross into the path of Manuela Lareo who took aim but her shot was deflected wide.

However, T&T got the opener in the 21s minutes. Liana Hinds delivered perfectly from a right-side corner for Maylee Attin-Johnson to rise unchallenged and head goalwards, but her attempt was cleared only as far as Rhea Belgrave who headed in from two feet away.

Kenwyne Jones' charges survived a number of attacks in the latter moments, including a solo attempt by Lareo, dribbling inside the T&T area on the right side, but with the goal at her mercy, she lashed it wide on the stroke of halftime.

The game lasted just eight minutes when the game resumed for the home team to get the equaliser. Kara received a pass from Oviedo inside the area and the skilful Dominican Republic player lifted it inside for Oviedo to head past the T&T custodian in the 48th minute.

But Forbes, who struggled with the cross balls, was again in action, going high to push out a well floated right-side corner in the 59th minute.

Jones wants football camp in January.
By Walter Alibey (T&T Guardian).


National Women's football coach Kenwyne Jones is aiming to have a camp in January where he will continue his preparation ahead of the World Cup Qualifiers in February.

Jones and his staff will begin sourcing worthy opponents for the camp but the final decision will not be theirs.

Following his confirmation as the team's full-time coach recently, Jones told the media via a virtual post-match press conference on Wednesday he intends to continue scouting potential players with the hope of selecting the best team to represent T&T at the qualifiers.

Jones, a graduate of St Anthony's College, said he intends to have a couple of international friendly matches as part of the camp, but warned he cannot assure the camp will take place, as that responsibility is out of his hands.

The local girls are set to open their campaign against Nicaragua, playing in a Group F of the qualifiers, which will consist of Guyana, Dominica and the Turks and Caicos Islands.

With the team short of preparation, the girls will have no Christmas holidays within steady preparation set to continue.

The team was beaten in its opening match of a two-match friendly series against their Dominican Republic counterparts in San Cristobal last Friday, and on Tuesday the team was held 1-1 in a match that Jones wanted a reaction from.

"After the defeat on Friday, I did ask the team to give a reaction because we have to develop that DNA in us when we have setbacks. Obviously, we did get that but we did not get the victory that we wanted, but a showing that as we continue to work toward the qualifiers, it will help us, it will make us stronger in the build-up for the qualifiers. So far, it is a building process. It is sometimes a slow and tedious process but they are all willing to work. In this block of games, we had here, it was an opportunity to see the girls we had here before, but also to see some new faces that we hope to include in the squad in the future", Jones, a former Secondary School Most Valuable Player said.

He added: "There is room for improvement. We will get better, the more we work together and it's just about getting our heads down and working. We're behind in match preparation I would say, compared to the rest of the teams we have been playing so far. I have all confidence that getting these games, and in the couple of months that we have ahead of us, we will be where we want to be. We're planning to have another camp in January but whether or not it will come off I cannot answer that right now. We're only fresh out of these two games right here. We have to go back home and get back to the training pitch. We have players who are coming back after finishing school, we have quite a few players who have to leave to go back to finish their exams and then they will be back home for the Christmas period when we will be training."

With regards to the planned camp and its finalisation he said: "I cannot give you that, but the hope is to have another camp in January. Obviously, there'll be a training period in between where we can still have a few people who can be part of the squad."

Captain Karyn Forbes, a 30-year-old midfielder from Plymouth, Tobago, said they were hoping to come away with a win after last Friday's defeat, but the result is part of the building process. Forbes described the performance, however, as a definite improvement, saying the Dominican Republic team has shown a marked improvement from when the teams last met, noting that her team will continue to work and peak at the right time.

Meanwhile, defender Rhea Belgrave, 30, the scorer of the lone T&T goal said her goal was as a result of her being in the right place at the right time. She noted that the team has shown a marked improvement from the Panama matches last month to the two matches against the Dominican Republic.

Jones eyes more players, improved efforts by Women Warriors.
By Jelani Beckley (T&T Newsday).


NEW Women’s Warriors football coach Kenwyne Jones, who has led the team to creditable performances over the past weeks, said the squad is not the final product as he is scouting new players and aiming to improve team performance to bolster the team’s pedigree.

T&T played two international friendlies against the Dominican Republic over the past few days in San Cristobal, Dominican Republic. The first match on Friday ended in a 2-1 victory for the home team and the second match ended in a 1-1 draw.

Jones, a member of the 2006 Soca Warriors World Cup squad, was hired as the full-time coach on Friday after being appointed interim coach in October. Before the matches against the Dominican Republic, T&T battled to back-to-back draws against Panama at the Ato Boldon Stadium, Couva. The teams played to a 0-0 draw in the first match on October 21 and the second match ended 1-1 on October 25. There are many experienced players on the T&T squad with the likes of captain Karyn Forbes, goalkeeper Kimika Forbes, Maylee-Attin Johnson and Kennya Cordner. There are also youngsters aiming to stamp their mark at the international level.

On Wednesday, speaking to the media following T&T’s 1-1 draw against the Dominican Republic, Jones said, “I was satisfied with the reaction by the team after coming off the defeat on Friday. I did ask the team to give a reaction because we have to develop that DNA in us when we do have a setback.”

Jones would have liked T&T to emerge victorious but was happy with the effort. Jones is targeting a camp in early 2022 but is uncertain if it will materialize.

“We are planning as a team, as a staff to have another camp in January, but whether or not it will come off I can’t give you that answer right now…we are going back home and get back to the training field. We have players that are coming back after finishing school…they are going to be back home over the Christmas period when we will be training.”

He later said, “There are some players that I desperately want to see in the hopes of adding them to the squad and that will be the perfect opportunity to be able to do that.” Jones is also aiming for more international friendlies.

T&T have scored three goals in the last four matches. Asked if he is pleased with the team’s goal-scoring ability, Jones said, “The team’s remit is to win games. Not every game you are going to go out there and score five goals and think that is how you win games only.”

Jones, who said championships are sometimes won with one goal, said, “Of course, like I previously said we have to improve and there is room for improvement in all areas, by no means this is the final product. We have a lot of room to get better.”

Jones said his priority is qualifying for the world cup during his time in charge. Jones recently received a nine-month contract.

On Friday, the TT Football Association announced that Jones will assume full-time responsibility for the team from December 1. It is a nine-month contract that “provides him the option to extend his term for a further year, based on the achievement of KPI’s and a successful performance appraisal.”

The national women’s senior team footballers have never qualified for the FIFA Women’s World Cup, but Jones believes in the team.

“The aim of this team is to go to the qualifiers and qualify for the world cup. That is the only mandate that I have set for myself. I believe in the potential of our squad.”

T&T will begin their quest to qualify for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand when they compete at the 2022 Concacaf Women’s Championship qualifiers.

Karyn Forbes calls on Women Warriors to develop personal fitness.
By Jelani Beckley (T&T Newsday).


NATIONAL women’s senior football captain Karyn Forbes is encouraging her players to work on their personal development and not depend on the T&T coaching staff to maintain a level of fitness.

Forbes led the team to a 1-1 draw against the Dominican Republic in San Cristobal, Dominican Republic, on Tuesday.

On Friday, in the first match of the two-match series Dominican Republic defeated T&T 2-1.

On Wednesday, speaking to members of the local media following the second encounter, Forbes said, “Definitely of course we would have liked to come out with the win, but unfortunately that did not happen and I think it is part of the process moving forward.” However, the captain was proud of the effort in the match, saying, “Definitely an improved performance.

“In terms of preparation, we have new players and it is always difficult (to gel immediately), but at the end of the day we have to take it one step at a time and keep moving.”

Forbes said the Dominican Republic are now a challenging opponent compared to past years.

“When I saw Dom Rep play it shows me clearly that all the countries are improving and if we don’t improve we will be left behind and that is in all aspects.

“I think that they have improved a lot from playing them six, seven years ago.”

Forbes called on her players to take personal responsibility for their development.

“I think it was a really good test for us and for the girls to understand that we can’t only wait until it comes to the national set-up in order to prepare ourselves.

We have to come with some level of fitness because time is getting closer (to the 2023 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign) and it is only so much the coaches and the staff at the national team could do. We have to understand what is at stake.”

Forbes is developing her leadership qualities by getting feedback from her teammates.

“Definitely more room for improvement.

“This is something new for me.

“I actually met with a couple of the younger players just to hear what is their take on the camp thus far…to me personally because I am now getting into this role I am actually trying to work little by little in improving. I think I am not doing too bad, but again there is always room for improvement.”

Rhea Belgrave, who scored the goal for T&T in Tuesday’s encounter, is enjoying the team vibe.

“I think the atmosphere around the team is pretty well. The idea is for us to just get accustom to each other, make sure we enjoy what we doing firstly and then build that chemistry…of course we have new players coming in and going out.

“It is just a matter to enjoy each other’s company, to build that cohesiveness on and off the field which will be great for us moving forward.”

Attin-Johnson, Cordner out World Cup qualifiers.
By Nigel Simon (T&T Guardian).


Experienced senior women’s football duo Maylee Attin-Johnson and Turkey-based Kennya “Yaya” Cordner will play no part in this country’s Concacaf Women’s World Cup qualifiers which kicks off next month for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

The local women team, coached by former national senior men’s captain Kenwyne Jones, is set to open their campaign against Nicaragua on February 17 at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Mucurapo in Group F of the qualifiers.

Three days later, T&T takes on Dominica in Guyana while they also play  Guyana, and the Turks and Caicos Islands in pool play.

However, speaking following a training scrimmage against the Under-20 women’s team coach by Jason Spence at the Ato Boldon Stadium, Couva on Saturday, Jones confirmed the omission of both veteran players as well as the departure of assistant coach Charlie Mitchell from the technical staff.

Both players were last part of the senior women’s team for a two-match tour of the Dominican Republic last November, both facing the media yesterday, Jones, a former English Premier League striker with Stoke City said confirmed their omissions.

With regards to the departure of assistant coach Mitchell who has left to take up the head coaching of the Sheffield United U-23s and head of another department.

Jones said, “Mitchell has been a terrific asset to us here in T&T and unfortunately I guess his contractual situation didn’t give him more permanence and he decided to take on this opportunity it’s unfortunate for us but we are working very quickly to fill the gap and that will be done pretty soon.

Pressed about the absence of 35-year-old Attin-Johnson who made her senior debut back in 2002 and was part of three of the recent warm-up matches, Jones while not explaining reasons for her omission from the squad, replied, "She has been a fantastic servant for T&T and she should be rewarded in that regard as she has done a lot for the women’s game and I personally do wish her well.

"Hopefully, she can reintegrate herself in some capacity in the future but as for now, the programme is going in a different direction.

With regards to her axing, Jones made it clear that it was a coaching decision and it was within his remit along with his coaching staff to be able to make decisions on what is best for the programme.

He added, "Like I said she has been a fantastic servant and we do respect that but we also have to think about the entire program  not only where we are today and where we want to be next week, but also for the next ten years.”

“I do thank her for her will and commitment but at this point in time we are going to go in a different direction

Questioned about 33-year-old Cordner who made her senior national debut in 2006 and has netted 46 goals for T&T. She is also the reigning senior women's "Footballer of the Year".

Jones stated that the Tobago-born Cordner who plies her trade with Fenerbache in the Turkish Women’s Football League has stated that she will not be in the team.

"Apparently she has stated such, but nothing was done to Ms Cordner by us, and again this is T&T national team and we are going to continue to work for and to work hard to represent T&T national team and there is an opportunity for us to find gems and develop gems for the future so again even with her we wish her well, she has been a fantastic servant and maybe in the future, she will be honoured by the association as well because we do have to respect our players and athletes in that manner and hopefully as well for her they will find a way to reintegrate and give herself back to T&T football."

Asked if there are any regrets over the two players being omitted Jones said absolutely not.

He added, “At the end of the day, you have to have a squad to qualify for tournaments and it is not going to be one player or ten players only so it gives the opportunity for other players to come to the foe and to be the future of T&T football.

“At the end of the day, I think a lot of things when I came on board needed to change and that took some time, did some analysis and hopefully going forward for today and for the World Cup qualification process the programmes of women’s football and how we continue to build and recycle and regurgitate talent that in itself we have to think about.

"For far too long, we have never thought about succession planning and how we are going to develop talent and bring in or introduce the younger talent." 

Happy with work of players in training

With T&T set to play its first match next month, Jones said the World Cup qualifiers are here and they have been working pretty well with the group that is here locally.

“We were trying to have a camp this January so we would have a couple of games, but unfortunately that didn’t come off so we had to make some improvisations and this morning (Saturday) we had a little scrimmage with the U-20 women which went pretty well.

“So, so far with the ladies that are here we have been working pretty well and we are just waiting until the qualifiers to get everybody else in." 

With respect to the warm-up against the U-20s, Jones said he honestly believes that these scrimmages are mainly to test the ability of the players to carry out a specific task that is set out for them to do.

“And we got it coming probably 15 minutes into the first third of the match (30 minutes periods), but more than enough I am trying to see us control games and be able to control the possession and tempo of the games which I thought we got better at.”

“This morning (Saturday), we all know that the sun was pretty hot so the tempo of the game varied at times but I am satisfied with what I saw this morning from this group."

Despite his satisfaction with the players in the session, Jones admitted that it was unfortunate that 95 per cent of the squad is out of the country. However, he still praised the players for their commitment saying: “The ladies that are here have been working well and we continue to ask them to work well because it is important that we help grow our base here in Trinidad.

“Notwithstanding the fact that of course if not all most of them can make it into the squad when you have players that are obviously of professional calibre outside and have been constantly playing in college seasons and whatnot of course you are going to have a look.

“So determining the final team for the qualifiers, we will have to do that very shortly, but I’m happy with the overall work.

"We should be getting into camp at the beginning of the international window on the 12th to be prepared for that game on the 17th."

‘We’re going in a different direction’; Kenwyne confirms Maylee exit—along with Cordner and asst coach.
By Lasana Liburd (Wired868).


Women’s National Senior Team head coach Kenwyne Jones suggested today that the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) should consider recognising and rewarding former Women Soca Warriors captain Maylee Attin-Johnson and star forward Kennya ‘Yaya’ Cordner for their tremendous service to the local game.

Neither player, though, will be rewarded with a place in his team for the upcoming 2022 Concacaf W Championship, which serves as a qualifying competition for the 2023 Fifa Women’s World Cup and the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

Two weeks ago, a brief flurry of social media posts suggested that all was not right between the head coach and two of his senior players. Today, with a few gracious words for both parties, Jones confirmed a parting of the ways.

He made it clear, though, that it was his call to end the 35-year-old Attin-Johnson’s immediate international career.

“It was a coaching decision,” said Jones. “It is in my remit and our remit to make decisions that are best for the programme. She has been a fantastic servant and we do respect that, but we have to think about the entire programme—not only where we are today and where we want to be next week but also for the next 10 years.

“We do thank her for her will and commitment but at this point in time we are going to go in a different direction.”

Attin-Johnson, a versatile midfielder with an eye for a pass and a tenacious spirit, has not represented the two-island republic in competitive international football since the 2016 Concacaf Championship under then head coach Richard Hood—the Women Warriors finished as defeated semifinalists in the competition.

Since then, Attin-Johnson, a key player in the team’s 2015 Fifa World Cup qualifying adventure, fell out with Italian head coach Carolina Morace, declined an invitation from Morace’s successor, Jamaal Shabazz, and was overlooked by subsequent head coaches Shawn Cooper and Stephan De Four.

However, Attin-Johnson rejoined the national set-up under Welshman James Thomas last year and appeared to still have something to offer on the field, running out under Thomas’ successor, Jones.

In three practice games last year, Jones used Attin-Johnson in the ‘number 10’ role for 267 from a possible 270 minutes. So what changed?

Jones was unwilling to say any more.

“We do thank her for her commitment, for her drive and for what she has done for women’s football,” he said, when asked to explain his decision.

Cordner’s departure appears to have been a response to the fracture between Jones and Attin-Johnson.

Jones, a 2006 World Cup player and former England Premier League forward, said the 33-year-old Cordner had not been dropped but had made herself unavailable.

“Nothing was done to Ms Cordner,” said Jones. “Again, we do wish her well and hope she has all success in the future—but we have to continue.”

Cordner, who plays professionally for Fenerbahçe in the Turkey Women’s Super League, was Trinidad and Tobago’s 2021 Women’s Player of the Year and is one of the country’s all-time top goalscorers. Her 39 international goals are four shy of the record set by her former teammate, Natasha St Louis.

If Cordner has turned down the chance to represent her country because of Attin-Johnson’s omission, there is precedent. In 2018, she refused to play in Trinidad and Tobago’s final group match of the 2018 Concacaf Women’s Championship as a mark of protest against coach Cooper’s sparing use of another teammate, Lauryn Hutchinson.

Cooper denied victimising Hutchinson who, ironically, was   substituted early in the same match, lasting just 33 minutes before hobbling off with an ankle injury.

“This is Trinidad and Tobago’s national team; we are going to continue to work hard to represent Trinidad and Tobago’s national team,” he said. “There is an opportunity for us to find gems and develop gems for the future. So again, even with her, we wish her well.

“She has been a fantastic servant and maybe in the future she should be honoured by the Association as well, because we do have to honour our athletes in that manner. And hopefully she can find a way to reintegrate with Trinidad and Tobago’s football in some capacity.”

Cordner was one of eight players who have started in every game under Jones so far, against Panama and the Dominican Republic (twice each). It means the rookie coach will have to try new combinations in the competition.

“Absolutely not,” said Jones, when asked if he regretted not using more players in their four practice games. “It gives an opportunity [now] for other players to come to the fore and be the future of Trinidad and Tobago football.

“[…] For far too long, we have not thought about succession planning and how we are going to bring in and introduce the younger talent. That is something that we have to do.”

Trinidad and Tobago host Nicaragua in their Group F opener on 17 February before they face Dominica in Guyana on 20 February. They then tackle the Turks and Caicos Islands and Guyana on 9 and 12 April respectively. Only the group winner will advance to the Concacaf W Championship.

There will be at least one more significant absence from the team. Assistant coach and analyst Charlie Mitchell, like his Welsh compatriot, Thomas, has also vacated his TTFA post.

“He has taken up an opportunity to become the head coach of Sheffield United’s Under-23 and the head of another department [there],” said Jones. “He has been a terrific asset for us here in Trinidad and Tobago. Unfortunately I guess his contractual situation didn’t give him more permanence and he decided to take up this opportunity.

“It is unfortunate for us but we are working to fill the gap very quickly and that will be done pretty soon.”

Jones’ team played the Women’s National Under-20 Team, coached by Jason Spence, in a scrimmage today and won by at least a half-dozen goals.

The Senior Women played in a 4-2-3-1 formation, which morphed into a 4-2-1-3 when the full-backs bombed forward and the wide midfielders tucked close to the centre-forward.

Maya Matouk featured upfront for the Women’s Warriors and was among the goals, while former Pleasantville Secondary stand-out Jasandra ‘Mama’ Joseph started alongside captain Karyn ‘Baby’ Forbes in central midfield.

“I am trying to see us control games, control the possession of the game and the tempo of the game, which I thought we got better at,” said Jones. “I am satisfied with what I saw this morning from this group.

“Unfortunately for this squad, 95 percent of the squad, I would think, are out of the country. Most of the [ladies] who are here are working well and we continue to ask them to work well because it is important that we grow our base here in Trinidad.

“[…] I am happy with the overall work.”

Jones hopes that the strength of the group will take the Women Warriors through the Concacaf qualifying phase.

“The strength of our team is going to be our team play,” he said. “Yes, we will have individuals who can do some sort of magic and get us a result. In games, you have a goalkeeper at some point in time making a save, or a defender making a tackle or a midfielder making a final pass or a striker scoring a goal.

“These are moments that you have in a game. But at the end of the day, it is going to be our overall team play—how we work as a team in defence, in offence, in transition, that will determine how well we do and how we go forward.”

Trinidad and Tobago veteran duo part ways with women's team.
By Jelani Beckles (T&T Newsday).


AFTER rejoining the national women’s senior football team just a few months ago it seems that Maylee Attin-Johnson and Kennya Cordner will not be part of the team in the near future.

Attin-Johnson and Cordner along with other senior players have made themselves available again after a long hiatus. Lauryn Hutchinson is another player who made a return to the squad.

Attin-Johnson returned in September and Cordner followed shortly after. The pair played in a few friendly matches for T&T during recent months.

News has been circulating in recent weeks that there may be issues in the T&T women’s camp with the likes of Attin-Johnson and Cordner at the centre of it.

Speaking to the media following a practice match against the T&T women’s Under-20 team, Jones said, “In terms of Maylee she has been a fantastic servant for T&T (and) she should be rewarded, honoured in that regard. She has done a lot for the women’s game and I personally do wish her well.”

Jones, questioned more about the absence of Attin-Johnson, said, “It was a coaching decision. It is in my remit and our remit to be able to make decisions that is best for the programme. Like I said she has been a fantastic servant and I do respect that, but we also have to think about the entire programme not only where we are today and where we want to be next week but also for the next ten years. Like I say we do thank her for her will, her commitment but at this point in time we are going to go in a different direction.”

Jones did not give any further details when asked if it was a tactical decision why Attin-Johnson is no longer with the squad.

Asked about Cordner’s absence, Jones said, “Nothing was done to Miss Cordner. We do wish her well. I hope that she has all success in the future, but we have to continue. Again, this is T&T’s national team. We are going to continue to work and work hard to represent T&T’s national team and there is an opportunity for us to find gems and develop gems for the future so again even with her we wish her well as well.”

Jones said Cordner should be honoured by the TT Football Association.

He said this will give other players a chance to prove themselves. Attin-Johnson and Cordner are two experienced players who would have been an asset as T&T aim to qualify for the FIFA Women’s 2023 World Cup.

Assistant coach and analyst Charlie Mitchell has also left the T&T women’s set up to accept a job offer with Sheffield Utd in England.

Jones said Mitchell was a “terrific asset” to T&T women’s football.

Not sure what's gone on here but in the last 2 games Maylee was absolutely useless. She's been great but at this point she won't be missed on the pitch.

Think ‘useless’ is an incorrect word, she didn’t seem to be on the team sheet at all in 2 nd game - is that when the issue started. Will watch 1st game again.

Trinidad and Tobago (3-2-3-2): 1.Kimika Forbes (GK), 8.Victoria Swift, 20.Lauryn Hutchinson (5.Meyah Romeo 46), 4.Rhea Belgrave; 12.Chelcy Ralph, 14.Karyn Forbes (captain); 7.Liana Hinds, 10.Anya de Courcy, 3.Aaliyah Prince (15.Laurelle Theodore 58); 11.Raenah Campbell (13.Dennecia Prince 76), 19.Kennya Cordner (18.Naomie Guerra 81).

Unused substitutes: 21.Tenesha Palmer (GK), 22.Malaika Dedier (GK), 2.Collette Morgan, 23.Adrianna Arjoon, 16.Janelle McGee.

Coach: Kenwyne Jones.


I just watched the 1st Half. Maylee was not at all useless, she wasn't a spark but definitely was equal to the task (at least against Panama). No, if Maylee didn't grow from since I observed her at U17 WC -being in a non-development environment can restrict that - the only issue might be her mouth. At that young age, i found her a little hard on her teammates and support staff in undesirable team performances. I would not make any assumptions as to what was or is the past or current issue. Yet, irregardless, the team has to move on, in spite of most unfortunate circumstances and losses of personnel, time and games.
 Is the direction that Jones decide to take the team best, don't know. However, 5 years from now, neither Maylee or Yaya would be part of it, unless they choose to be in a supportive capacity, right now they choose not. Dreams can't stop for the few young ladies who would like a little chance, if only to represent, get a trip, or an education etc. They had theirs, they represented full and well, got their opportunities. Proud of their commitment, next up, next step.

 Like  many players there comes a time when yuh shelf life  reaches an expiry date-  Its not that the players were not valued but I think the game and the direction is changing.

To be perpetually  keep on recycling players and hoping for success  is the manifestation of a deeper issue  that being the lack of adequate player development or national programs  to feed  into our national teams.

If you look at the men's friendly- you saw evidence of players whose better days are behind them and  in games like this when the stakes are low why not expose younger players to garner  valuable experience?

In the matches thus far, I would  surmise that the impact of these two did not change the games outcome significantly nor do I see  the omission of them moving forward as detrimental to future success.
 Thanks for the years of service but we need a revamp.

Jones names 22-player squad to face Nicaragua.
TTFA Media


Members of the Trinidad and Tobago’s Women’s Senior Team selected for the upcoming CONCACAF Women’s World Cup qualifying match against Nicaragua have began assembling for their residential camp at the TTFA Home of Football in Couva.

The first set of players selected by head coach Kenwyne Jones checked into the facility on Friday with some of the overseas-based players completing arrivals early in the week ahead.

“We’re very excited for the start of the World Cup qualifiers for 2023. Everyone is looking forward to settling into the camp and getting the best possible preparation over the next few days ahead of Thursday’s match,” Jones said.

“I am definitely looking forward to working with this group of players and seeing how we can go about achieving what we set out to.”

US-based defender Lauryn Hutchinson, who arrives in camp on Saturday night, also expressed her anticipation of preparations ahead of Thursday’s encounter which kicks off at 3:00pm at the Hasely Crawford Stadium

“I’m extremely excited to start our World Cup campaign. This will be the third time representing the beautiful Trinidad and Tobago in a Women’s World Cup campaign and I couldn’t be more up for it than now,” Hutchinson said on Saturday.

“I think it’s important that we lean on each other in terms of coming together as one. I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity to represent my country, my team and all the women out here. This means so much to us and we are also very excited to be returning to the Hasely Crawford Stadium to begin our campaign.

“I know all of my teammates are also looking forward to putting in the work and following the directions of coach Kenwyne and the rest of the staff in order to get the best possible start which is a victory on Thursday,” she added.

The Nicaragua team is scheduled to arrive here on Tuesday.

Teams have been drawn into six groups of five, and will play two home and two away matches in a single round robin format Should more than thirty CONCACAF member associations have entered, a play-in round will be held prior to the qualifying group stage. However, as 30 teams entered qualifying, this was not necessary. The six group winners will advance to the final tournament.

The 2022 CONCACAF W Championship will be the 11th edition of the CONCACAF W Championship, the quadrennial international women’s football championship contested by the senior women’s national teams of the member associations of CONCACAF, the regional governing body of North America, Central America, and the Caribbean. Eight teams will play in the tournament, which is scheduled to take place from 4 to 20 July 2022 in Mexico.

The tournament will serve as the CONCACAF qualifiers to the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, as well as for the football tournament at the 2024 Summer Olympics in France. The top two teams of each group will qualify for the World Cup, while the third-placed teams from each group will advance to the inter-confederation play-offs.In addition, the winners will qualify for the Olympics and the 2024 CONCACAF W Gold Cup, while the second and third-placed teams will advance to the CONCACAF Olympic play-off.

Skipper Forbes confident against Nicaragua despite challenges.
By Walter Alibey (T&T Guardian).


“Confident.” That’s how T&T’s women’s football captain Karyn Forbes and her team feel ahead of Thursday’s crucial World Cup qualifying encounter with Nicaragua at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Mucurapo.

Forbes and her charges have been through a lot, from constant changes in the coaching staff to instability among the players that resulted in the sacking of experienced midfielder and striker Maylee Attin-Johnson and Kennya Cordner, just recently.

Coach Kenwyne Jones, had some four days with his entire team, ahead of the encounter, which was due to the limitations at both school and club levels.

Forbes said in spite of the challenges, their main focus was to secure three points against the Nicaraguans at home.

“ It’s never easy when you have your players three or four days back, barring the fact that we have to work with what we have. We have a lot of new faces, so we just have to go out there and do our best.

Right now, we will be using a new system, most of what we are familiar with, but as I said, it is always a task having your players come in a few days before, but that’s what the professional world gives and unfortunately at the schools, you’re not allowed to get out of the school for more time than you’re allotted, so we just have to work together and go out there and do our best to win the game.”

So far, the inclusion of Carlos Edwards as an assistant to Jones has been reaping dividends with most of the players buying into his coaching style and philosophy which is similar to Jones.

Jones has had to sever ties with both Cordner and Attin-Johnson but it has never shaken the confidence of Forbes who believes that with the continued support from her senior players, her team can maybe give the country something to celebrate.

“The coach’s decision is the coach’s decision and me and the players will continue looking forward because we can’t do anything about that. We still have a game on the 17th (February) and that’s where our focus is right now.

“I feel very confident with the team that we have and I think we have what it takes to go forward and win the game. We’re taking each game one step at a time, of course, everybody’s programme is improving so we’re not going to underestimate anybody. All we want is victory and that’s what we’re going for.

“Barring all the COVID-19 that is going on in our country and in the world by extension, I think this will be really awesome if we can have something to celebrate, especially this win, with people getting the opportunity to witness the game.

“I really hope that we get the opportunity to get as many fans because we really need the 12th-man going forward and this will be a perfect time for them to see the new generation coming forward.”

What happened to Arin King? I know she is still under 30

She's actually 31.
But what happened. I mean Carli Lloyd was 39 up to last game. Barring injury or pregnancy, King was one of the few class players we had, in spite of being played out of effective position, imo.

Yes, you are correct about that.
