Whitley to head Connection.
« on: September 12, 2007, 08:28:54 AM »
Whitley to don W Connection colors.
By: Randy Bando (ttproleague).


Axed San Juan Jabloteh prodigy Aurtis Whitley has signed on with cross country rivals W Connection on Tuesday confirmed club owner David John Williams. For the first time since joining the San Juan based club eleven years ago, the Trinidad and Tobago World Cup midfielder Aurtis Whitley is about to don a different club uniform and with no other but his former rivals W Connection after being axed last Friday. 
For the first time since joining the San Juan based club eleven years ago, the Trinidad and Tobago World Cup midfielder Aurtis Whitley is about to don a different club uniform and with no other but his former rivals W Connection after being axed last Friday. 
Williams told ‘ttproleague.com’ that he preferred not to disclose details of the contract but commented that Whitley is a great addition to his team.
“We feel that he is a great addition to our team for the rest of the season. We need players of his quality at the moment because we have lost a few players this season. We feel that he is still one of the greatest midfielders in this country and he still has a lot to offer.”
“He has great midfield skills and also a capability to score goals,” ended Williams.
Whitley was axed by Jabloteh four months before his contract expired because of being delinquent and a so called lack of passion which he admits to.
Whitley explained that he had an ongoing grouse with head coach Terry Fenwick which has prompted his lost of commitment to the club he had served for eleven years.
“He (Fenwick) always created problems with the senior players at Jabloteh and that was frustrating to play under. I was training and doing all what I had to do but when it came to matches I wouldn’t get selected and that was another frustrating matter,” explained the now W Connection midfielder.
“My passion to play for the club really went and I had to do what I did to get out.”
“They (Jabloteh) got eleven good years from me and I am really sorry it had to end the way it did. My heart was really at Jabloteh,” said Whitley emotionally.
Admitting that he would miss his former teammates, Whitley is now focused on returning to his glory days under new boss Stuart Charles Fevrier.
“All I wanted to be was comfortable. I know that now my standard will rise again because I want to make an impact with W Connection.”
Whitley had his first session under coach Stuart Charles Fevrier on Tuesday morning and explained that he enjoyed every bit of it.
“The W Connection players all welcomed me. It was really nice and I’m feeling really comfortable already,” said the now W Connection player.
Whitley has played his entire professional career in Trinidad. He enjoyed trials in England with Premiership club Portsmouth FC before the 2006 World Cup in Germany and in Vietnam in 2007.
At age 30 Whitley still has aspirations to playing abroad saying that he believes that he can create opportunities for himself to play professionally outside of Trinidad and Tobago while with W Connection.
Whitley a member of the blacklisted T&T internationals also said that he is always available to play for his country but hopes that the situation between the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation and his colleagues is resolved soon.

So isn't there a mechanism in the Pro League for a player to hand in a transfer request?

There is always at least two sides to every story. We finally now hearing the player's side.  Hopefully he is able to rekindle that passion he lost and validate Connection's faith in him, and not give up the fight. He rep the RBW and ran with the best. Lets hope Fevrier can bring out in him that same passion Beenie was able to. I really wish the best for this fella.

Peace

Whitley, you have to earn your pick !!!!!!

The young players at Jabloteh is doing pretty good and getting better by the game and Whitley probably felt he was a main stay... he got carried away... Khaleem Hyland booted him out the Jabloteh start team...

It was said earlier that there are two sides to every story. I was always taught there are three..."Your side, my side and the truth". Just because Whitley has put in his two cents doesn't mean he is now in the right. As Tallman alluded, can't PFL players hand in Transfer requests if they ain't happy at a club? All this airing of dirty laundry in public is of little use. Who cares which party is right or wrong we will probably never know the true story. The main thing is, He was'nt happy and as a result, has moved on. I agree in wishing him the best of luck with his new club and hope he lives upto his word that his standard of play will improve at Connection.

Whitley eh have to go in to more details but it is not as petty as you put it.

Read Properly ....

''Whitley explained that he had an ongoing grouse with head coach Terry Fenwick which has prompted his lost of commitment to the club he had served for eleven years.

We still bashing him because that story is bullshit. You're telling me he is not comfortable because he aint getting pick. Maybe because you playing shit Whitley or the youngsters coming up take your spot and you cyah handle that so you lost commitment to the team and stop training STEEEUUPPSSSS!!!!. With that said yuh is ah trini so I still wishing you all the best Whitley!!!

From what he said all the other senior players have a problem with Fenwick...so how de cheese stand alone so?
Anyway...hope he does well at Connection. 

Real disturbing how many players are being released for disciplinary reasons and ending up at other clubs without transfer fees passing....is this some kinda underhand ploy players/clubs using to move?

It's clear that you beleive his side of the story, good for you, somehow I beleive he got swell headed with that money and seeing that he been at Jabloteh for so long, he thought he was an automatic starter. I wish him the best of luck at his new club.

Connection movin like real cobeau, all now so they makin pooja for Peter Byers or Cornell to get ketch in something bad. I wonder how much "Connection" Whitley had with Fevrier before he "had to do what I did to get out"?

what is there to apologise for or delete. otis seaton admit that he guilty of all that he was accused of. basically what i get from this article is that he was getting bench and he found it unwarranted so he decide to display the behaviour which he admits to.

Good thing is to try and clear up his name he will play ball 4 connection now. ah win win as far as i can see

seek ye 1st the kingdom of God & his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you
