They sign him even after this.. :rotfl:.

Craig Faulconbridge and Dennis Lawrence is a 6'7" Trinidad and Tobago football player, who has joined on a two year deal with Swansea City FC in the English Football League One.  scored the goals that boosted Wrexham's survival hopes - and put Wigan back into trouble.

Latics boss Jewell said: "I can't believe it. We've lost 2-0 in a game we dominated. I thought it should have been 0-0 at worst."

Faulconbridge beat John FilanJohn Filan (born February 8, 1970 in Sydney) is an Australian football (soccer) goalkeeper.

He joined Wigan in December 2001 for £600,000 from Blackburn. He has a wealth of experience in the top-flight from his time with Rovers and with Coventry (from 1995-1997) that has the link for more information.

From close range in the 18th minute before Lawrence added the second - both goals coming from quickly-taken set pieces.

Shabazz praises Lawrence appointment

Shabazz praises Lawrence appointment
T&T Newsday


Jamaal Shabazz, Assist-ant Director, Women’s Football in TT, has hailed former national defender Dennis Lawrence’s appointment as an assistant coach at Wigan Athletic as a major breakthrough for TT and Caribbean coaches.

Lawrence has teamed up with his former coach at Swansea City Roberto Martinez and will assist the Wigan manager in training and also on Premiership match days and also reserve games.

“That’s great news,” he said, “he has always had a good football head and seeing him work with the Caledonia AIA defenders a couple months ago, I have no doubt that he will become a top class coach,” he added.

The former Guyanese coach noted that to become coach in England is tremendous achievement and we should be proud of what Lawrence has done.

“The English market is very difficult to break into not just from a nationality perspective but from an ethnic one as well,” he said, “ he will join a small group that could open doors for a lot of Caribbean coaches,” he explained.

Meanwhile, former national player and ex-coach of the now defunct United Petrotrin, Brian Williams congratulated Lawrence from making the transition from player to coach.

“I think obviously in football when we are no longer playing then you go into managing,” he said.

Williams pointed out that Lawrence’s natural leadership qualities from being a central defender will auger well as he takes up this new portfolio.

He noted that the standard is now set for coaches in the region to aspire to and hoped Lawrence’s appointment provides an avenue for more coaches and players to work in England.

“This is one of the areas Dennis can assist in.

He can create opportunities for all of us in TT and the Caribbean,” he said, “I am happy for Dennis and I hope he can express himself well there,” he added.

Yes, Dennis confirmed with me personally and he said in due time if things go right we can expect to see Trinis at the club on trials and possible deals if they impress off course.
The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Thanks fellas... wasn't doubting it, but I just like to be sure before ah start celebrating.  :beermug:

Ah always did like Lawrence (the WC pay fiasco being the notable exception), and happy to see him getting an opportunity.  I didn't know much about Martinez (outside of what his bio held), but he really opened my eyes during the WC broadcasts with ESPN.  He strikes me as a very intelligent manager, and more importantly than what he knows, is his ability to explain concepts in simple, accessible ways.  This is the mark of a good teacher, and I'm sure that even if he doesn't work directly with Martinez a whole lot, Lawrence stands to benefit tremendously from the opportunity.
