Just a question, why isn't Greg overseas or in the Mls?

he plays in the same league  as Guerra  ,trevin caesar  and molino (2 years ago)

Brother, we all know Tulla better than that league, good start for him but not a final goal with his talent..

Hart should test Greg with a smaller team, or against china ...

Fair enough!

Ranjitsingh’s clean sheets earns Team of the Week selection

Ranjitsingh’s clean sheets earns Team of the Week selection
louisvillecityfc.com


May 10, 2016

In just 197 minutes of regular season action, Louisville City FC goalkeeper Greg Ranjitsingh has allowed just one goal — a penalty kick in his first minute of action. For his services to the table-topping LouCity (5-1-2, 17 points), Ranjitsingh has been named to the USL Team of the Week as goalkeeper for Week 7, the league announced on Tuesday.

“It’s great to receive the individual honor,” Ranjitsingh said. “The shutouts are a team effort. That’s never something I’ll take credit for, because it takes 11 guys to do their jobs well to get that result. i couldn’t be happier with how the team is playing right now.”

The 6-foot-2 shotstopper sealed a scoreless draw at Bethlehem Steel last Sunday before taking all three points at Toronto FC II on Wednesday via a 2-0 victory. All in all, Ranjitsingh has concreted five points in three matches since stepping into goal.

Ranjitsingh is Louisville City’s seventh Team of the Week selection in 2016. He joins Scott Goodwin, who earned Team of the Week in Week 1, as a LouCity goalkeeper to earn the honor.

In his first start of the 2016 season, Ranjitsingh came up huge early on, after a Steel through ball snuck past the LouCity back four. Ranjitsingh came off his line in a diving effort to deny Bethlehem an early goal. The keeper came up big again in the 90th minute after a softly struck Bethlehem shot lingered around the penalty area before Ranjitsingh picked it up and ended any chance of a Steel goal.

In his hometown of Toronto, Ranjitsingh came up huge in the 36th minute with a diving save off of a TFC II free kick. He sprawled to his right and clutched the well-placed shot.

In his rookie season, Ranjitsingh started one regular season match against the Charleston Battery on September 12. Ranjitsingh got his first start for Louisville City on May 20 versus Lansing United in the second round of the U.S. Open Cup.

The Canadian out of Mercer University made several key saves to preserve the clean sheet and help Louisville City FC advance with a 1-0 win. The goalkeeper played in the second half of Louisville City’s 3-1 win over Orlando City SC on August 25, and allowed just one goal.

Ranjitsingh stands tall in LouCity goal

Ranjitsingh stands tall in LouCity goal
By Caitlin Ladd (louisvillecityfc.com)


Saturday’s game Kings’ Cup match against Saint Louis ended in Ranjitsingh’s third consecutive shutout of the season.

Incidentally, these past three games have provided Ranjitsingh with the opportunity — to test his year-plus of training as Louisville City’s No. 2 keeper — on the field after playing a just one regular season game last season, which ended in a 2-0 loss to Charleston Battery. He featured in one half of a friendly against MLS-side Orlando City SC, and the U.S. Open Cup game LouCity played against Lansing United.

“Last year, I was the backup to Scott Goodwin and Scott’s a great goalkeeper,” Ranjitsingh said. “In training it’s always competitive where you push each other. I think just having that kind of environment to train (in) every day, when you know you have people pushing each other, you get better.”

In addition to more regular season game time, Saturday’s game was also the first home start for Ranjitsingh. The fans played a role in his excitement and Ranjitsingh joked that his voice was almost gone because he had to shout over the crowds for his defenders to hear him.

When asked how he felt about starting, Ranjitsingh lit up.

“(It was) amazing,” Ranjitsingh said. “Last year I got a little test in exhibition versus Orlando, but to have a season game and to start my first game at Slugger, it was great. The environment that they have here, all the fans behind us, it’s awesome to play.”

For Ranjitsingh, saves seem to add even more to the atmosphere of the game and the ambiance that Slugger provides, especially the back-to-back saves he achieved at Saturday’s game.

“It’s great how after a save, you get all pumped up,” Ranjitsingh said. “Sometimes it happens during the game, you don’t get much to do and late in the game, 85th, 86th (minute), you have to come up and help out the team. That’s what it’s like to be a goalkeeper and I was just pumped to be able to help the team out.”

Despite all of the excitement surrounding the three shutout streak — and a seventh consecutive unbeaten match from LouCity — Ranjitsingh refused to take credit, insisting that it’s a team effort. He thinks his teammates are doing a great job by minimizing who gets past the defense and what he’s forced to deal with when that happens.

“Ultimately, it’s just that one moment,” Ranjitsingh said. “You have to come up big and no matter if it’s a busy game or not you just have to be ready for it.”

Next up for Ranjitsingh and LouCity, is the 2016 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup second-round match on Wednesday against Detroit City FC at Bellarmine University.

So if he is a Trini, what we waiting on? Hart lived in Canada so I hope he has a good reason for not selecting him, because Jan Michael makes me really nervous.

First of all, I want to say that the GK pool in the U.S. is superior to Trinidad.  Just taake a look at the MLS, and you'll see that the GK standard is better than the overal standard of play.  America is blessed with high GK talent because of the nature of the sports they play that all demand hand to eye coordination and catching:  American football, baseball, lacrosse, basketball.  Secondly, the USL is not a bad league, although it has been marred by a split into two competing leagues.   This guy can't be any worse off than the options we currently have.  The reports have been good, and now Hart maybe needs to scout him some more.  We have two GKs in the setup that have not been convincing in their displays recently, and they're not going to get much better; they're aging.

Deserve a call up, 5 clean sheet this season already. Nobody eh saying he should get pick to be we number one, but at least training with de squad because we short in this area. Phillip and Glenroy eh good, especially Glenroy.

Hyland play one game all season for Genk and was making de national team all year, same for Hoyte.

Steups !!!!

The man could at least get a look... There is a dearth of quality keepers and we can't afford to leave any stone unturned. Andre Boucaud was neglected for many years because he was playing in the lower leagues. He still plays in the lower leagues, but Hart took a chance and now he is a vital player in our midfield. Greg obviously has potential and is performing well for his club... If we have another friendly before Qualifiers, it won't hurt to give him a call up.

I liking the idea of pulling him in, but might be a slight problem..he is their #1 goalie, they in 1st place, their season wrapping up end of sept, then possibly playoffs. They might not want to let him go (or he come/come late). However, if the coaches could take a trip and observe his training and play in advance, might serve us well. Camp wouldn't be as critical to him, if he's in form.

Points taken but with a camp he can get to bond with the players, as he stated in the vid how he feels comfortable during games knowing the ability and strengths of his defenders. A camp will give him the benefit of getting to know our players, our style of play, etc. Not sure if it will happen before of next set of qualifiers but it will be good if he can have a scout watching him in action though.

This nowhere near Roopie heights.

This guy have a lot of upside. Already getting a lot of minutes in a competitive league with lots of travels and rigors etc and he is still very young for a keeper

Let's stay tuned.

Greg Ranjitsingh Age 23 on Monday; 6' 2": Louisville City F.C.
Cleon John Age 35 in October; 6' 3":North East Stars F.C.
Marvin Phillip Age 32 in August; 6' 0": Point Fortin F.C.
Jan-Michael Williams Age 32 in October; 6' 2": Central F.C.
Adrian Foncette Age 27 in October; 6' 1": Police F.C.

Using age, current playing level and qualities required for the HEX, please explain why if he and his club make him available we would not want to invite him to a camp?

I dont think that it is desperation, but I get the impression that Hart has seen him and doesnt think he would sufficiently challenge what we already have.

He should have already been with the squad, especially with the run of friendlies that we had last month.  It would be very difficult for a new keeper to get a run in our squad during the Hex.

I like the fact that he's young.  But in the absence of  Jan-Williams, Hart took Glenroy Samuel and Adrian Foncette, and that to me sends a clear message.

After Jan, we in some trouble.  I actually rate Glenroy as our next best. 

Not sure if this was answered before, but has Ramjitsingh made public an interest in playing for us?

At least one of his parents advocates on here for his inclusion so I would make a leap and say yes he is interested.
See below from 4 years ago. I don't think anything has changed since then... could be wrong


That is not true....McComie said that there's a lack of interest in the Goalkeeper department....if that's the case they need to contact Greg Ranjitsingh.
