Eve wary of consequences after admirable opening victory

Eve wary of consequences after admirable opening victory
ttproleague.com


North East Stars head coach Angus Eve is bracing for a backlash on the heels of his team’s 3-1 win over Caledonia AIA last Friday.

Second half goals by Cornell Glen, Kerry Baptiste and substitute Kaydion Gabriel handed the Sangre Grande club full points at the Hasely Crawford Stadium against Caledonia to enjoy pole position on the 2012-2013 Digicel Pro League standings after round one.

“It’s always good to win,” said Eve following his head coach debut in the TT Pro League. “…but we are not naive to know that it’s just the first game and it takes 21 games to win the League.”

The former San Juan Jabloteh and Ma Pau SC assistant coach added, “We just chalked it up to having a good start.”

However it wasn’t just a win or a good start. It was a win against the winner of last season’s First Citizens Cup, FA Trophy, Lucozade Sport Goal Shield and Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Club Championship, Caledonia AIA who currently participates in the CONCACAF Champions’ League group stage.

Eve continued, “It’s a good feeling. Jamaal Shabazz is someone I look up too and all that he has been doing at Caledonia over the years. And also what they have achieved last season and now playing in the CONCACAF Champions’ League.

It added a bit of gloss [to the victory] knowing that Caledonia have already played a few games this season and we were in our first.”

But on the flipside, the former Trinidad and Tobago international and Olympic Team coach, said, “We just set a trap for ourselves because other teams will now be coming differently at us.”

Internally, Eve said it’s his job to keep the North East Stars players’ feet on the ground and not become self absorbed by Friday’s Round One Match Day One win. The North East Stars coach went further saying, “The good thing is that I have a big squad, so if anyone becomes complacent, I’d have someone to do the job.”

Eve’s handcrafted squad includes goalkeepers Cleon John and Adrian Foncette, Seon Power, Glenton Wolfe, Jayson Joseph, Kevon Villarael, Jeromie Williams, Kennedy Hinkson, Elijah Manners, Baptiste, Gabriel, Kareem Moses, Devon Jamerson, Glen, Jean-Luc Rochford among others.

This weekend North East Stars, second positioned Police FC, third positioned Defence Force, W Connection, Central FC, St. Ann’s Rangers, T&TEC FC and Caledonia will turn all eyes on the First Citizens Cup quarter-final round which will be drawn on Wednesday.

The knockout tournament will run for three weeks with the quarter-final round on September 21, the semi-final round on Friday 28 September and the Final on Friday 5 October.

Angus Eve takes over as Rangers head coach

Angus Eve takes over as Rangers head coach
ttproleague.com


St. Ann’s Rangers have acquired the services of Angus Eve who will take charge of the club’s Pro League outfit for the upcoming 2015/2016 season.

Rangers, rock-bottom finishers in the last two seasons, are coming off their worst ever campaign with just 5 points from one win and two draws from 24 matches in the 2014/2015 Digicel Pro League championship. That’s two points less than the previous season.

“Before I came to the club (St. Ann’s Rangers) I knew the challenges the club had,” Eve said. “(But) I love a challenge. I love new projects so to say… so coming here for me was another opportunity to showcase my coaching talent.”

Eve, a former Trinidad and Tobago international and most capped player, said his goal is to “build back the respectability of (Rangers) and for the club not to be a pushover in any game that we go into.”

Rangers will kick off their 2015/2016 Digicel Pro League campaign on Saturday 26 September against Defence Force, a former club of the 43-year-old Eve and the side they defeated 2-1 in their final league match last season to avoid a winless campaign.

Eve recently completed a three-year spell (2012-2015) with North East Stars. He led the Sangre Grande club to the 2012 Toyota Classic and 2015 TTFA FA Trophy. Also during his tenure, his first as head coach of a professional club, Eve guided North East Stars to 4th, 5th, and 4th finishes in the last three DPL campaigns.

Eve joins Rangers as replacement for former national player and coach Ron La Forest, who finished the 2014/15 season as head coach of Rangers during a brief one-month stint.

Eve’s local coaching experience includes serving successful spells at San Juan Jabloteh (2006 – 2009) and Ma Pau SC (2009 – 2011) as assistant coach to Terry Fenwick and Michael Mc Comie respectively.

He also boasts international coaching experience, having been appointed manager for the Trinidad and Tobago Under-23 team for the 2012 Olympic Qualifiers.

St. Ann’s Rangers FC operations manager Richard Piper said, “The club’s appointment of Angus comes with immense enthusiasm in his capacity to identify and develop young players, and create systems to bring the best out of them. This aligns with the club’s ideals of providing opportunities to young players to showcase their talent within the top flight of local football, and we are delighted to have him on board.”

Current club manager and Women’s Team head coach Jason Spence expressed that, “The acquisition of Angus Eve to the professional team, and by extension the club, is enormous. I believe Angus is quite relative to the players as he is young and dynamic. He has (also) been fantastic for the country as a player, and he has certainly been making quite a name for himself in the coaching arena.”

Spence returned to his initial roles after holding the role of head coach of the professional team for most of the 2014/15 season.

Eve, who is yet to finalise his squad for the upcoming season said, “There are some nice youngsters here. It’s just to get their frame of mind in the right place, and once we can do that we can be very competitive and build back some respectability to the club. I inherited a lot of players who have contracts here, and no disrespect to any of the coaches who have been here before, but I think that a bit of professionalism was lacking in the guys, and if I can bring that professionalism in them, with the potential that they have, no team should take us easily.”

Eve closed by saying, “We have 17-year-olds and 18-year-olds here. If I can help develop these young players and they can attract the national youth teams that can see them perform at a higher level than they have been, and they can gain opportunities for themselves, that’s within our objectives. If we can get the guys to move on and get opportunities on the outside, that’s also one of the goals for the club.”

Club Sando hires Angus Eve in search of lift.
ttproleague.com.


Club Sando became the latest project of Angus Eve after the former North East Stars and St. Ann’s Rangers coach agreed to a three-year agreement with the Digicel Pro League (DPL) club for the upcoming 2016/17 season and onwards.

“The plan is to improve on what Sando did last season [in the league],” said Eve who wants his new side, Sando, to also push for the First Citizens Cup and Digicel Pro Bowl finals in the upcoming season. “Nothing is beyond us as Leicester City demonstrated last season [in the English Premier League]. Sando made no finals last year, so to make it to two this season will be an improvement. If we can do that then we will give a go at titles.

“But for now we are realistic,” added Eve. “Our team are young. We are not W Connection who have a very young team but very experienced due to play at the CONCACAF Champions League experience and international exposure. So it’s a matter of managing our expectations at Sando.”

The expectations are high—a top half of the table finish this season and eventually the DPL crown—from Eve’s new employers. “We don’t expect success overnight,” said Club Sando boss and San Fernando businessman Eddison “Eddie” Dean. “We are a 25-year-old club and it took us quite some time to dominate the South Zone and then it took us some time before dominating the Super League. [But] I hope it don’t take as long to dominate the Pro League.”

Since joining Sando in June, Eve has made “wholesale changes” to the club’s roster with goalkeeper Stefan Berkeley, midfielders Kevon Piper and Keron Cornwall and forward Trevin Latapy all joining from Rangers. Former North East Stars midfielder Jamaican Keithy Simpson has also reunited with Eve following a stint Finland.

Other signings include Akeem Roach (Defence Force), Leslie Russell (Morvant Caledonia United), Kevin Lewis (Police FC), Vincentian Nical Stephens (Cunupia United), Jayson Joseph, Nicolas Thomas (Point Fortin Civic) and Kaashif Thomas (San Juan Jabloteh). While Kemuel Rivers, Shaquille Holder, Akeem Humphrey, Jared London, goalkeeper Kelvin Henry and former Naparima College captains Michael Basdeo and Amrit Gilharry have all been retained. Eve has also promoted 20-year-old midfielder Anderson Toussaint from Sando’s Super League team.

Sando made their Pro League debut last season, finishing seventh on the 10-team DPL standings under coach Anthony Streete who had led them to the Super League title the previous season and before that a runners-up finish.

But at the end of last season, Sando parted ways with Streete, who has now returned to his old employers Rangers, who failed to avoid a third consecutive cellar-position finish last season even with Eve at the helm. Credit to Eve, however, Rangers’ play showed improvement while nearly tripling their points tally from the season before under previous coaches.

Prior to his stint at Rangers, Eve had a three-year spell at North East Stars – his first position as head coach of a professional club – and led the Sangre Grande club to the 2012 Toyota Classic and 2015 TTFA FA Trophy. Also during his tenure, Eve guided North East Stars to 4th (2012-13), 5th (2013-14), and 4th (2014-15) finishes in the DPL.

Eve also had successful spells at San Juan Jabloteh (2006–2009) and Ma Pau SC (2009–2011) as assistant coach to Terry Fenwick and Michael Mc Comie, respectively, while his international coaching experience stands at having a stint as the Trinidad and Tobago Under-23 team for the 2012 Olympic qualifiers.

However it was the former Trinidad and Tobago international’s coaching success with Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) giants Naparima College over the past years, including last season’s treble (National Inter-Col, South Inter-Col and Premier League) that captured the interest of Sando, with club boss Eddison Dean a Naparima College old boy and keen supporter of “Naps” football team.

Eve said his philosophy to develop young players for the development of Trinidad and Tobago football while creating better opportunities for youngsters align with the thinking of Dean.

Eve has acquired the services of former Guyana international Charles Pollard as assistant coach and former San Juan Jabloteh and North East Stars goalkeeper coach Brian James, both who had lengthy playing careers in the Pro League.

Eve will face his former employers when Club Sando tackle San Juan Jabloteh on September 30 from 5pm at the Mahaica Oval in Point Fortin in the opening game of the 2016/17 Digicel Pro League followed by home side Point Fortin Civic against Morvant Caledonia United from 7:30pm to complete a South vs North double-header at the venue.

At least 8 months.
By Ian Prescott (Express).


ANGUS EVE believes that the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) should learn from mistakes it made with Belgian Tom Saintfiet and make his replacement feel he has their support.

“Win, lose or draw, the new coach needs to know that he has the support of the Football Association (TTFA),” Eve said, in a telephone interview last week following Saintfiet’s resignation. “I believe that he has to get at least eight months on the job.”

If heeded, Eve’s advice would see the new coach retained for the duration if the World Cup qualifying campaign. Trinidad and Tobago has eight matches remaining, ending its campaign on October 10, 2017 against the United States, in Port of Spain.

Saintfiet took the Trinidad and Tobago head-coach job in early December with the proviso from TTFA president David John-Williams that he would be sacked unless producing positive results in the World Cup qualifiers against Panama and Mexico, in March.

Saintfiet cited lack of support by the TTFA when handing in his resignation last Tuesday, following back-to-back losses to Suriname and Haiti in 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup qualifiers.

“From the first day of my unveiling, I did not get the support of the TTFA and its president; support which is needed to be able to do my job in a professional and successful way,” Saintfiet said upon his resignation last week.

“Given the mandate to guide the team past Panama and Mexico in the coming World Cup qualifiers in March 2017, I have come to the conclusion that I can’t be successful in this environment.”

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Eve makes case for training local coaches abroad.
By Mark Pouchet (Express).


Former national senior team player and current coach of Club Sando, Angus Eve implored the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association to come up with programmes to develop local coaches so they can contribute to the national junior, youth and senior teams.

And while the man who also coaches Naparima College saluted the appointment of Dennis Lawrence as the new national senior team boss, he lamented that more opportunities were not being sought for the home-based coaches.

“Currently, I don't see the local coaches will get involved; when you look at the picture as a local coach looking in, it doesn't seem that you would get opportunities,” Eve said, adding that coaches like W Connection's Stuart Charles-Fevrier and Digicel Pro League treble title-seeking Central FC Coach Dale Saunders are coaches eligible to contribute at lower levels.

“There are youth teams, even if the local coaches don't get opportunities at senior level because we understand that most of us don't have that sort of experience, but you can groom them in the junior levels,” Eve said. “We have all the coaches that are coaching in the (Pro) League and doing well in the league and not being given the opportunity at national level.

Eve had the opportunity with T&T and never did anything.

Its not the job of the TTFA to improve coaches, they have to do that on their own.

Besides, Lawrence is basically local and so to is Latapy, not that I like Latas much as a coach, but they are son of the soil.

Ross Russell, Michael McComie, Michael Maurice, Gally, Bertile St Clair, Derek King, Hutson Charles, Richard Hood, Marlon Charles, Ken Alie, Shawn Cooper, etc, had many international exposure as T&T coaches in the past.

Eve wants more strategy from local coaches.
By Walter Alibey (Guardian).


The elimination of T&T’s Under-20 footballers from the Korea Republic 2017 Under-20 World Cup qualifying series has come as no surprise to ex-national coach Angus Eve. But he believes the time has come for local coaches to do more assessments of their opponents if they want better results at international tournaments.

His comment comes mere days after T&T’s hopes were dashed following a 1-0 defeat to host Costa Rica. The junior Warriors appeared to have given up their opportunity of advancing early on in the competition when they drew 1-1 with Bermuda in their opening match last week, and found themselves in a must-win situation with the hosts at the Estadio Nacional in San Jose, which they lost despite a valiant effort.

Yesterday, Eve said T&T teams have been losing out on chances because coaches rarely conduct proper analyses of their opponents before matches.

“Local coaches don’t really do that, but strangely it (analysing teams) is the norm for coaches at that level of the game internationally. When we have to go up against top teams internationally, their coaches study our team and come up with effective ways of beating us,” Eve said.

He added, “Local coaches always tend to feel that they can match teams based on ability, but it is not the way international coaches operate. Let’s say a Jose Mourinho for instance, who does a detailed assessment of his opponents before he takes them on, so we have to do the same thing or else we will continue to get the same results.”

Eve, who has coached Club Sando in the T&T Pro League and Naparima College in the Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL), still congratulated Williams and his staff for their effort.

However, he said although the Under-20s seemed well prepared for the tournament, they did not look tactically cohesive and strong in offence and defence,.

He noted that young striker Nicholas Dillon appeared to have been doing everything up front for the team, which painted an unclear picture of what was being done tactically.

In addition to the the drawn match against the Bermudans and the loss to Costa Rica, T&T defeated El Salvador 2-1 in their last Group C encounter, but it was not enough as they finished at the bottom of the three-team qualifying table with four points.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

If these comments were relayed right by the writer, then Eve sounds really naive and waaaaay behind time. To be talking about this as if just discovered this idea and is calling on local coaches to learn something. . .he can't be serious.

Also to imply that no scouting of the other teams were done seems a premature conclusion unless he knows that for a fact.

I like what I see in Eve more often than not, but these comments worry me at times. . .

but cocorite, we coaches not tactical nor do they make ah effort to be, we fed up discuss dat point on dis forum, it does be fairly noticeable dat there does never seem to be ah solid plan "per opponent" just "ah way we play"......no targeted marking nutten......yet our opponents know right off who is and how to handle we best players....mind you on field game management is also sadly lacking.......as asylum kept pointing out, we were always several ticks too slow in everything we did.......and then there was those dreadfully long moments of indecision against costa rica........it might sound naive to be repeating tings yuh would tink ah local coach should know, but more often than not plenty ah dem does act like they eh know, don't care to know or to lazy to implement.

"Eve sounds really naive and waaaaay behind time."

So because it has been said before, Eve should not say it again, or play he didn't see, or act like he don't know, or just 'doh say nuttin' ?

"However, he said although the Under-20s seemed well prepared for the tournament, they did not look tactically cohesive and strong in offence and defence,."

Totally agree, and that's why I blame the coach. Would Eve have done a better job ? Sounds so, yet hindsight is 20/20. Improvement considered I agree the boys were tactically unprepared, given the length of preparation time. Not because it was obvious or new, it shouldn't be said or repeated.

If these comments were relayed right by the writer, then Eve sounds really naive and waaaaay behind time. To be talking about this as if just discovered this idea and is calling on local coaches to learn something. . .he can't be serious.

Also to imply that no scouting of the other teams were done seems a premature conclusion unless he knows that for a fact.

I like what I see in Eve more often than not, but these comments worry me at times. . .


but cocorite, we coaches not tactical nor do they make ah effort to be, we fed up discuss dat point on dis forum, it does be fairly noticeable dat there does never seem to be ah solid plan "per opponent" just "ah way we play"......no targeted marking nutten......yet our opponents know right off who is and how to handle we best players....mind you on field game management is also sadly lacking.......as asylum kept pointing out, we were always several ticks too slow in everything we did.......and then there was those dreadfully long moments of indecision against costa rica........it might sound naive to be repeating tings yuh would tink ah local coach should know, but more often than not plenty ah dem does act like they eh know, don't care to know or to lazy to implement.


So I am the naive one to think it is a foregone conclusion that all our coaches (let alone international coaches) are scouting and analyzing our opponents?

Well, there I go again expecting too much when I was convinced that we done pass that level loooong time.

Well I stand corrected. So then I cyar be looking at these games with the expectations that we are prepared even if the team gels together.

Sweet, sweet, T&T oh how ah love-up meh country.

Eventhough they does make it hard for me. . . .Oh. .Oh. . .Oh

You are not naive to think it should be done. However, if Eve is implying that it may not be done or done properly, and he is in the system and in more regular contact with local coaches, don't see how you can claim him to be naive and behind times, unless you have more contact with local coaches than him. Do you ? If you do, then rightfully, your criticism may be warranted. :thumbsup:

add: the only issue I do have with local coaches, and i do have issues with many of them, Eve included, is the fact that seem unwilling to learn from anybody else they deem local. including. a Hart, Phillips or even a Gally, or even each other. (yet, even that is based on a relatively few observations and instances)

Angus Eve: I owe my life to football

Angus Eve: I owe my life to football
ttproleague.com


Angus Eve, Trinidad and Tobago’s all-time most capped player and First Citizens Sports Foundation Hall of Famer, is firm in his belief that the Trinidad and Tobago Pro League is “a massive benefit” to the twin-island republic.

The 45-year-old Eve, who is in his second season as Club Sando head coach, said that he, and many others like him, owe their lives to football through the existence of Pro League clubs, and that Government and corporate Trinidad and Tobago should realise the significance of the professional league.

“The existence of the Pro League has always been tremendous in the development of my family life,” said the Carenage-born father-of-four.

“A young man coming from Carenage – one of the areas considered a ‘hot spot’ – I can tell you most of my friends were not law abiding.”

Eve said with the support of his parents and later guidance from former Trinidad and Tobago national team coaches Bertille St. Clair and Ron La Forest, and the late Richard Abraham, a former Joe Public and T&T team manager, and others, he was able to fulfil his dream of becoming a professional footballer and captained his coountry.

A talented midfielder with an eye for goal, Eve represented Joe Public, Defence Force and San Juan Jabloteh with the same dedication that earned him the admiration of Trinidad and Tobago fans and 117 international caps for his national team.

“I had my dream that I wanted to fulfil playing professional football so I left the Defence Force,” explained Eve, who also had stints in England and Holland with Chester City FC and Roda JC respectively. “Having clubs like we have in the Pro League helped develop me and took my profession to a level where I was able to train, rest, and focus on football on a full time.

“It’s a massive benefit to have the Pro League, even more now than back in my playing days. In my time we would get one or two players out to better opportunities but now way more players breaking into professional leagues abroad. And doors continue to open up in America, Europe, Honduras and Costa Rica because players have a base of the professional football here in Trinidad.”

Germany-bound Joevin Jones (Seattle Sounders / USA), Kevin Molino (Minnesota United / USA), Mekeil Williams (Colorado Rapids / USA), Cordell Cato (San Jose Earthquakes / USA), Ataulla Guerra, Neveal Hackshaw (Charleston Battery / USA), Trevin Caesar (Sacramento Republic FC / USA), Aikim Andrews, Jelani Peters (Toronto FC II / Canada), Jerrel Britto (Honduras Progreso / Honduras), Jomal Williams, Shahdon Winchester (Murciélagos / Mexico), Daneil Cyrus, Jan-Michael Williams (Juticalpa / Honduras), Jamille Boatswain, Kurt Frederick (Alajuelense / Costa Rica), Leston Paul, Dwayne James (Pasaquina / El Salvador), Sheldon Bateau (FC Kairat / Kazakhstan), Radanfah Abu Bakr (FK Sūduva Marijampolė / Lithuania), Lester Peltier (FC Alashkert / Armenia), Keston Julien (AS Trenčín / Slovakia), Brent Sam (SU 1º Dezembro / Portugal), Willis Plaza and Carlyle Mitchell (East Bengal / India) are some former Pro League players currently attached to clubs abroad.

“I am in the second part of my football, which is coaching,” added Eve, who began coaching as an assistant to ex-England international Terry Fenwick at Jabloteh before moving to the now defunct Ma Pau SC alongside head coach Michael Mc Comie.

Eve, who went on to hold head coach roles at North East Stars, where he had title success including the FA Trophy, and St. Ann’s Rangers, questioned, “If we didn’t have a Pro League …would we have this opportunity?

“Professional football isn’t only down to the owners of the team,” continued the 1991 FIFA U20 World Cup Trinidad and Tobago player. “They (the owners) are actually doing community service when you think about it, and it’s only fair the Government and corporate Trinidad and Tobago assist.

“Sportsmen don’t look at politics. I represented the national team during the time of NAR, UNC and PNM governments and the respective sport ministers during their terms would come to the airport to celebrate when we did well. We serve our country and what we asking for is support so that the politicians can come and celebrate.”

Eve joined the call for the upgrade of grounds for use by professional teams within their communities, using reference to some clubs in England who use state-owned facilities. He said it will help the business of clubs and by extension improve the Pro League.

The former T&T Olympic team coach is also of the opinion that Tobagonian players are cheated by not having a team from the sister isle at the Pro League level.

“Players from Tobago don’t have the same opportunity as their Trinidad counterparts. They don’t play at the same high intensity on a regular basis and it shows, for instance, when there is national selection because they are not accustomed to a faster level of play. Tobago is full of talent but they need to play consistently at the highest level locally.”

Eve recently stepped down as first vice-president of the Northern Football Association (NFA) to concentrate more on his coaching roles at Pro League title contenders Club Sando and with Naparima College, who he led to a number of titles over the last three seasons including back-to-back SSFL League crowns in 2014 and 2015.

Sando returns to Pro League action on Tuesday 19 September against North East Stars in a top-of-the-table clash from 6pm at the Ato Boldon Stadium following which Couva rivals W Connection and Central FC will renew their rivalry from 8pm at the Couva venue.

Also on Tuesday, Point Fortin Civic will host Morvant Caledonia United from 6pm at the Mahaica Oval and simultaneously at the St. James Barracks, Police will welcome San Juan Jabloteh.

Pro League action, however, resumes on Friday 15 September with St. Ann’s Rangers taking on Defence Force FC from 6pm at the Ato Boldon Stadium before weekend fixtures in the FA Trophy Round of 64.

I have issue with the word cheated. It is a misfortune that Tobago does not have a team in the pro-league. But the football people in Tobago need to address that. Not to say that the Trini football fraternity should not do everything in it power to help Tobago get a team in the league. There are people in Tobago who has money, and Tobagonians abroad who could assist in this endeavour. The biggest problem is the travelling between the two islands. This appear to take lots of resources from teams going back and forth. That is a shame after more than  50 yrs of independence. It appears in another fifty years we will still be the same way.

But if they can't have a team Tobago, the players should be able to make any of the pro-teams in Trini..... well if they good enough. And they are more than good enough. So Winston Duke, put some money in Tobago pro-football.

Trinidad and Tobago legend Angus Eve on Chester City days, World Cup heartache, hiding David Platt and partnering Dwight Yorke
By Dave Powell (cheshire-live.co.uk)


For a country with a population of just over 1.3million and some 4,360 miles away from British shores, the Caribbean islands of Trinidad & Tobago have provided more than their fair share of footballing talent to the English game.

A look back at English football, particularly in the mid to late 1990s and early to mid 2000s and there are plenty of names that stick out when you think of the Soca Warriors, a nation who made their World Cup bow in 2006 at the end of the playing cycle of some of their greatest exports.

Dwight Yorke at Aston Villa and Manchester United, Shaka Hislop at Newcastle United, Stern John at Nottingham Forest and Birmingham City, Russell Latapy at Hibernian, Kenwyne Jones at Stoke City, Carlos Edwards at Sunderland, Dennis Lawrence at Swansea City and Wrexham. There was a time not so long ago when a Soca Warriors side would be filled with those plying their trade in the English game.

In the last Trinidad & Tobago international squad, against Venezuela, there were no players plying their trade in English football, that well worn route for players from the neighbouring islands to English football hasn't been walked for some time now.

For all the memorable names to have played in this country from Trinidad & Tobago there is one, revered as a legend on home soil, who many English fans, except those of Chester FC , may not be aware of.

With 117 caps to his name Angus Eve has donned the red and black of his country more than any other player. A tally of 34 goals from those appearances for a man who described himself as 'your typical number 10' is a pretty good haul.

He played in World Cup qualification campaigns, played in CONCACAF Gold Cups and Caribbean Cups and travelled the globe with the Soca Warriors. Mention his name to those from Port of Spain to San Fernando, Princes Town to Sangre Grande and they will know just who Angus Eve is and recognise just what contribution he made to the game in his home nation.

But while the 47-year-old remains one of his nation's most decorated footballers, Eve's professional playing career in England, and indeed outside Trinidad & Tobago, amounted to 14 games and four goals for a side who were rock bottom of the English Football League back in the 1999/2000 season.

Eve played his club football in his home nation for some of the most successful sides, teams like Joe Public, Defence Force and San Juan Jaboloteh that may not be recognisable names for even the most bookish of English football fans but to fans in their native country they are powerhouses.

By 1999 there was already a steady stream of T&T players in the English game, from the Premier League to Division Three.

In the lower reaches the likes of Crewe Alexandra stopper Clayton Ince and the Wrexham trio of Edwards, Lawrence and Hector Sam were already forming a little community in the North West and North Wales.

Two more would soon be added to that group.

As a Chester fan who followed that miserable relegation season that saw the Blues exit the Football League for the first time in 69 years, I'd always been intrigued by the players that donned the blue and white that season, from Goran Milosavljevic to Siggi Eyjolfsson.

American owner Terry Smith was initially portrayed as the saviour of Chester City back in July 1999. He was, of sorts.

A club that was on the brink of going bust, Smith, backed by his wealthy father Gerald, decided to make the switch from American Football to 'soccer' and take on the ailing Blues.

All seemed well at the start before the madness began and the circus was in full swing, Smith installing himself as manager after the club parted ways with Kevin Ratcliffe in the opening weeks. It was, as expected, to end in complete disaster, but that's another story.

I'd always been fascinated by Eve and his journey. Why Chester? Why didn't we see more of you?

I find an old article on a Trinidadian website that interviews Eve, who was proving elusive with no Facebook or Twitter to contact and no former players able to furnish me with a number. I email the reporter and he sends me Eve's email address and I give it a shot. Bingo!

It takes a very short period of time to set up a chat thanks to the wonders of WhatsApp and Eve couldn't be more giving with his time. A bubbly personality shines through, as does a passion for the game and for coaching, particularly the development of young players, something he is currently involved in back home as head coach of Naparima College in what is a thriving Colleges League in T&T.

So, 20 years on, why Chester?

"I was on trial at Kansas City Wizards in the MLS and trying to win a deal there," recalls Eve, who despite his short spell at Chester remains the club's most capped international of all time, 35 amassed while the Blues held his registration.

"There was the American guy, Terry, there and he was after an attacking player, like a number 10, and he wanted to bring internationals to the club as he had big plans. I already knew plenty of the guys in England like Shaka, Dwight and Russell Latapy, so I was keen to listen to what they had to say.

"I had a trial, they had a look at me and I was offered a three-year deal. It all happened pretty quickly.

"I was playing in the national team with Dwight and he was at Manchester United, but I was told by Shaka that you have to earn your right in England and the best way to start and to shine was to play in the lower levels and show what you can do.

"That was what I was thinking. I was looking for a stepping stone in the English game and I kind of thought it would work out like it did for the other guys. It wasn't to be, though.

"I came over with another guy who was Trinidadian, Kamu Laird. We stayed together in a flat and it was great. It was cold all the time but Chester as a city and it's people, it was beautiful and everyone went out their way to make sure we felt at home."

Eve, who had arrived on trial initially with another T&T international, the late goalkeeper Michael McComie, was coming into a Chester side still rocked by the resignation of Ratcliffe, with Smith now in charge of first team affairs despite his limited knowledge of the game.

International clearance had to be sought, not an issue due to the amount of caps Eve had gained for his nation, and he made his Chester debut in December, a 2-1 home win over Halifax Town. Eve and Laird both made their debuts, both on the scoresheet. It was a dream start.

But it proved to be a false dawn as Chester lost the next six, Eve scoring in a 4-1 loss at Carlisle United but missing two games through international duty, something that would be a regular occurrence during his time at the Deva Stadium.

Things would change for Eve very quickly at Chester following Smith's eventual decision to relinquish control of on-field matters to Ian Atkins, who held the title of director of football at the Deva.

A raft of changes came about under Atkins as he sought to move on some of the players who simply weren't up to the job, bringing in his own recruits. Eve would be kept on at the Deva but was faced with the dilemma of having to miss matches to play for Trinidad & Tobago in order to maintain his status to play in the country. It meant that Atkins, who was working miracles on the pitch, moved him down the pecking order and Eve only started four times under the new City boss, netting twice in a 5-0 win over Mansfield Town.

In an interview with Cheshire Live in 2016 Atkins spoke on the final day, a dark day for Chester as they lost their Football League status after a 1-0 home loss to Peterborough United, a game where a point would have sufficed. The then Chester boss stated that the club tried to reach Eve in an airport in a bid to find out his whereabouts. Eve was on World Cup qualification duty, T&T facing Haiti.

Atkins said: "First off we lost Angus Eve. I was told a couple of days before the match that he was off playing somewhere with Trinidad & Tobago. I couldn't believe it. "Here we were preparing for probably the biggest game in the club's history and we were without one of our better strikers because he was on international duty.

"We were frantically ringing round trying to get hold of him. We did eventually get in touch with one of his team-mates who was waiting for a plane at the airport with him. Angus wouldn't speak to us, though, and that was the last we heard from him."

Eve disputed Atkins' take on events, though, and claimed that all he ever wanted to do was to make a success of his time at Chester.

"I'm not the type of person who throws people under the bus and I certainly always showed Chester respect," said Eve, who revealed that Crewe Alexandra had made a bid to land him during his time with the Blues.

"I had to play for my country to keep up my status but I never felt I was given a fair chance when I was available. I'd be playing alongside Dwight Yorke one day and on the bench and not playing for Chester when I returned.

"We were in a relegation battle and the manager didn't really feel the need for players like me, I don't think I fitted into the style of play that he felt he needed at the time.

"But I'm glad Chester happened, though. I don't carry regrets around with me and God always has a plan. I was very lucky to play in England, how many people can say that they have done that? I loved Chester and I really wanted it to work out for the long run but it wasn't to be."

Eve spent time on loan back at Joe Public before leaving Chester in 2000, but he did try and have another crack at the English game, taken on trial at Alan Pardew's Reading but unable to earn a deal.

But Eve returned to Trinidad with a renewed focus with San Juan Jabloteh, the forward, who was still skippering the national side up until just before his retirement in 2005, targeting a place in the Soca Warriors squad for the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

A World Cup appearance was a dream of Eve's, a player who started his journey with the national side in 1991, helping them reach their first ever FIFA Youth World Cup alongside Yorke that year in Portugal.

All those caps would count for nothing when it came to naming the squad for the 2006 World Cup though and Eve, who had been part of the squad for qualification, would not be on the plane to Germany, then T&T coach Leo Beenhakker, one time Real Madrid boss, choosing a more conservative approach. It was a crushing blow.

"It absolutely killed me and I was fuming with rage," said Eve, who had began the road to Germany as skipper of the T&T side under then coach Bertille St Clair.

"I was absolutely gutted. I'm pretty philosophical about it all now as I'm older and wiser, but back then I just couldn't get over it. I'd worked so hard but I decided to retire when it became apparent that the coach wasn't thinking about creative players, he was thinking about his next job and went with mostly defensive players for the World Cup.

"When I knew that I wasn't going to be in with a chance to make that squad no matter what I did then I knew it was time to call it a day."

Eve moved into coaching and even had a stint as assistant at Jabloteh under former England international Terry Fenwick before becoming part of the coaching staff for the Soca Warriors' under-23 side, initially as assistant before taking on the head coach role and leading them through the Olympic qualifiers and CONCACAF qualifiers before leaving to take up a head coach position at North East Stars in Trinidad, later moving into colleges football with Naparima, where he has delivered several championships.

"Maybe I'm too outspoken," said Eve when reflecting on his U23s stint.

"I have always spoken my mind and some people don't like that, but if I feel that something needs to be said then I will say it.

"I'm loving coaching the young players where I am now, I think that is very much where I see myself in the future, in developing young talent.

"I'd love a chance to coach abroad in the future, though, maybe U23s, and I'd love to go back to England. I'll be doing my A Licence soon I hope and I'm on a path that I'm really enjoying.

"Football has given me some great memories.

"Playing in that Trinidad youth team that reach the World Cup in 1991, playing up front with Dwight and Jerren Nixon (ex-FC Zurich and Dundee United), things like that I will always cherish.

"I remember when Dwight was a youngster at Aston Villa in the early 90s, I was over there and getting some treatment at Villa for an injury I had, a bit of rehab. To be in and around some of those players and have a bit of a scrimmage with them was amazing. David Platt, Paul McGrath, Tony Daley - heroes.

"It was around the time that David Platt was about to go to Bari and the English media were everywhere and all wanted a piece of him about the story. We kept on having to sneak him out in our car so nobody saw. Things like that all form part of what has been a memorable journey for me.

"Chester is part of that journey just like all the places I've seen and games I played for Trinidad & Tobago. I'm proud of the playing career I had and just wish I would have been able to show Chester fans a bit more.

"But I'm on an exciting new journey and, who knows, maybe I'll find my way back to English football again."
