Dennis Lawrence heads to Jabloteh
C News


TT Pro League defending champions, Blink San Juan Jabloteh have added national senior team Captain Dennis Lawrence to their roster.

Lawrence who is contracted until the end of October, has come in to give the team's central defence a boost for the CONCACAF Champions League tournament however, he will not be available for tomorrow's match.

Head coach Earl Jean is pleased with Lawrence's inclusion especially with the hectic CONCACAF and TT Pro League games schedule.

He will add much needed experience in central defence which recently became stretched due to the absence of Robert Primus and Sheldon Bateau, who are with the national under-20s as preparations continue for the world cup in Egypt next month.

Lawrence will make his Jabloteh debut against current TT Pro League leaders Caledonia AIA on Saturday at the Mannie Ramjohn stadium.

as the center piece in our defense - and most likely captain again for the next game, it's good to have him here so that Latapy can work closely with him, and he doesn't have to cross the Atlantic to join the team just days before the remaining crucial encounters.

Maybe because our World Cup Qualifiers end on October 14th.

Not necessarily...the play off is in November. I thought of that......buh.....i guessing this should be taken as an indication that once this campaign is done...he retiring again..for good? Both club and country?

I think players like Lawrence need to come back to our league to help build it.  When we have our teams beating up on MLS teams to qualify for the champions league, it says a lot about the talent we have growing.  I also think Yorke should come play also.  The PFL would grow tremendously with players like him in the league, and of course the support will also increase and with right marketing, our league can continue to attract more international support and players. ;)

The last shall be first. Remember that saying. Looking at both games yesterday. Jabloteh looked good in midfield but clueless in the final third. Men not using their brains, for example the right lane tight and two men free on the left with a big hole in the middle and they will not switch the play. WConnection looked like a professional outfit- maybe Latapy needs to convert Touissant into an attacking midfielder.

I take it that the men who responded on this thread so far are not those on the anti-DL band waggon.

I remember some posts that mention that Dennis Lawrence should not be let near a football field again.  The man also came in for some sharp criticism after the USA and CR games for his defending...or lack thereof.  I also read a next comment to the effect that he teaching Abu Bakr and dem the wrong thing.

All I remember is how much crap he was when he first make the side under Porterfield. So if he could develop as he did, Bakr can do miles better

I feel i will have to dig through the archives from the old site for reviews of Tallest first appearances. I don't recall anybody wanting that "un co-ordinated basketball player" on the field. A tall, tall man who couldn't even head a ball.

And yes, he debuted in Defensive Midfield before finding a home in defence.
