Back in the 80's: Jason Gatt (Go get wood for this name, but I liked his style), Wong from Valsayn, solid player, Ronald Koo, The goal keeper from Fatima, Nigel Patela (sp), de worm from St.james sec, Keeper Romley from St. James Sec, Franco from ST. James Sec, Piers Ryan from ST. James Sec (End up playing with Fatima for form 6).  Nuff men in the RBC League.  Lists goes on and on.......

Would have expected all these men to put on the colours for country one time or the other.

There were two Koo brothers at Fatima, neither were Keepers - If I read your post right.

Can't remember which was Ronald but the younger one had decent skills. However, unless he got bigger and improved after I left Fatima, can't see what he could've done.

Sean Roberts was an excellent GK from Fatima but broke his leg.

Ronald (older) was better in my opinion that Roger (younger) (family thing LOL), I think the GK for fatima was Saga (he was the one I was talking bout).

A sign that you getting old when this thread have a real meaning for you. The 1st player mentioned on this thread - Contro topic of conversation (Pre Hart) every single day; so far the only one I could really say fit the bill for me. (Sign that you old is that youths today would probably never know who that is).

Well there are so many T&T youth players over the years who have disappointed as their career developed ..too much to name
