TTFA initiates steps to enter U-17 Men’s Team in T&T Pro League U-18 Division
TTFA Media


The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) has initiated steps to enter the National Men’s Under 17 Team into the T&T Pro League’s Under 18 Division.

The intention, recommended by Head Coach, Russell Latapy, and supported by the TTFA’s Technical Director, Anton Corneal, is to afford the current squad of players the opportunity to be actively involved in competition as it continues its preparations for forthcoming CONCACAF qualification tournaments.

The TTFA wishes to state that it had initiated dialogue with the management of the T&T Pro League. TTFA General Secretary, Justin Latapy-George, gave the assurance on Friday that the National Under 17 Team, once permitted by the Pro League, will appear in the competition as a National Team and not compete under the title of any other team. Additionally, the General Secretary noted that there had been some disquiet among our stakeholders based on this matter so he needed to clearly state the position of the TTFA.

“What we have done is to further actions related to our discourse by writing to the League requesting it’s consideration to allow the Association’s National Under 17 Team to compete in the Under 18 Division of the Pro League. We believe that we have submitted a request that will receive favourable consideration. However, irrespective of the final decision of the League it is important that I extend thanks for their consideration. It is pivotal that I again note that if our application is accepted that the team will compete as the National Under 17 Team ,” Latapy-George stated.

Both Latapy-George and Technical Director Corneal stated that it was evident that this type of approach proved to be successful in the past, making reference to the Under 20 Team of 2008, participating in and winning the National Super League that year before going on to qualify for the 2009 FIFA Under 20 World Cup in Egypt.

Corneal reiterated the importance of having the Under 17 and Under 20 men’s team in active competition prior to their respective qualifying tournaments later this year.

“We feel this is the best way to go in terms of trying to ensure that the teams are in active competition over a specific period which falls in line with their preparations prior to the CONCACAF qualifying matches,” Corneal said.  “We have seen what doing this in the past has done, case in point the 2009 team that went on to qualify for the U-20 World Cup and coupled with the international matches that the FA may be able to organise along the way, this could only positively assist us in preparing the teams going into the qualifiers,” Corneal added.

T&T U-17s to play as Caledonia Utd? Coaches, clubs, parents up in arms over officials’ “bullying”
By Amiel Mohammed (Wired868).


The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association’s National Youth Programme came under fire again today after National Under-17 staff members yesterday urged players sign forms to represent Morvant Caledonia United in the Under-18 Division of the Youth Pro League (YPL). The signing generally took place without the teenagers having the benefit of adult counsel or the chance to consult with their parents and clubs.

On Tuesday, Trinidad and Tobago National Under-17 Manager Aaron Pollard and Assistant Coach Duane Richardson visited several schools and presented the players with YPL registration and transfer documents and instructed them that they had to sign to play for the Pro League club.

Neither team coach Russell Latapy nor Technical Director Anton Corneal could be reached for a comment but one Pro League club coach confirmed the sequence of events to Wired868 and expressed great surprise at the way things had gone.

“I was contacted [yesterday] by one of my players,” the coach said, “who said that an assistant coach from the Under-17 National Team came up to Naparima College and came up to him with registration information and a transfer request.

“He told him he had to fill that stuff out, one time (for Morvant Caledonia United).”

The coach conceded that the officials did have some authority to make decisions because clubs are lower down on the totem pole than national teams. He objected, however, to the manner in which the whole operation has so far been carried out.

“National Team takes precedence as far as I’m concerned,” he said, “but to transfer him out and into another club, that is very odd to me.”

On Tuesday as well, Pollard sent a text message to players and to some parents indicating that, owing to the national team’s need for match practice combined with the unavailability of the funds required to arrange games against foreign teams, a decision has been taken to register the team to compete in the TTYPL as “Caledonia Utd.”

“The U17 Football Team will be playing under Caledonia Utd in the T&T Youth Pro League U-18 tournament,” Pollard’s text reads. “We are doing this because we need to play more matches as a team and to find better quality matches since we are not able to secure international matches at this time. The deadline to register is tomorrow so I will be calling you later today to make arrangements to get the registration and transfer form signed.

“Please call for more info.”

Contacted by Wired868, Pollard declined to confirm whether the Under-17 will be competing as Morvant Caledonia United and claimed that a request has been made for Latapy’s charges to play in the League as the National Under-17 Team.

Pollard also declined to confirm whether Richardson or himself had visited any of the players yesterday and refused to reveal the identity of the mastermind of this new initiative.

However, coaches, clubs, parents—many of whom are still to be formally contacted about the proposed move—are particularly pleased with what has so far transpired.

One school head coach, speaking to Wired868 on condition of anonymity, claimed that the negative reactions have been generated by the failure to follow proper procedure and respect the communication chain.

“Nobody from the National Team reached out to me,” he said, “which is disappointing. Things would be so much better if everybody would just communicate and (let us) work hand-in-hand.”

“There is no higher honour than playing for your country,” he insisted, “and I would never stop the boys from playing for their country. But at the same time, some level of respect has to be coming back to the schools.”

He expressed concern about the possibility of victimisation if the players and parents refuse to sign the registration and transfer forms.

“What are the ramifications if the parents decide that they’re not signing their boys over to Caledonia?” he asked. “Is it that they going to be victimised and banned from the national team going forward? We have such a big pool of players that we could afford to ban players?”

Another Pro League club owner was not pleased at the way things had been handled either.

“These people didn’t even call me or the parents,” he complained to Wired868. “One parent called me and was very, very upset with the whole situation.”

“She said that her son was very upset that they went to his school and forced him to sign. ‘They kinda bully the boys and pressure them to do something that they didn’t want to do,’ she told me.”

He too agreed that the national teams take precedence over the clubs but he could not understand some of the decisions that have been made.

“Why play under Caledonia?” he asked. “Why you chose Caledonia? You asking boys to leave the clubs that they born and grow in to go to a next club and play?

“If it was an Under-17 team playing as the National Team, now that is a difference. But you playing under Caledonia so you going to represent Caledonia?”

National youth teams have previously participated in national competitions but always as national teams and never as a club.  And, despite the unambiguous statement in Pollard’s text, Morvant Caledonia United owner Jamaal Shabazz was adamant that no such thing is going to happen this time either.

“Them competing as ‘Cale’ is out of the question!” he exclaimed to Wired868.

According to the seasoned Pro League coach, who also serves as TTFA National Youth Football Coordinator and National Women’s team head coach, Morvant Caledonia United was requested to relinquish their spot in the Under-18 Division of the TTYPL to allow for the National U-17 to take their place.

Explaining further, he said that his club does not currently have a full squad and they were asked, “to give up our spot, but not for them to compete as “Cale” but for them to compete as the National Team playing in the Division.”

The YPL is currently two rounds into its season and Morvant Caledonia United have already forfeited their first two games in the Under-16 and Under-18 divisions.

TT Pro League General Secretary Julia Baptiste explained that, according to the rules of the competition, the initial deadline for registration in the League was 2pm on 8 February.

However, there is a second registration window, which was opened on 26 February and which will remain open until close to the end of the competition. Therefore, any team that did not properly complete its registration by that preliminary deadline can now still register teams after two rounds.

To be eligible to compete in the round on the Sunday, any as yet unregistered team wishing to play must however file its registration documentation by noon on the Friday immediately preceding.

Under this rule, clubs such as North East Stars and Central FC, which previously forfeited points in various divisions, can now suit up for action.

Baptiste denied any knowledge of any registration request to have the Under-17 team compete in the YPL but, according to Shabazz, the proposal is on the agenda for the Pro League meeting this Friday.

Editor’s note: As the story was about to be published, Wired868 was learned that, in the wake of the negative reaction and persistent inquiries from Wired868, TTFA officialdom has softened their position and are no longer requiring players to sign the relevant forms.

U-17 to compete in Youth Pro League.

TTFA reverses position, vows to compete as “National Under-17 Team” in Youth Pro League.
Wired868.com.


The Trinidad and Tobago National Under-17 Team, once permitted, will participate in the Youth Pro League Under-18 competition under its own name, after condemnation of its initial attempt to play as Morvant Caledonia United.

On Tuesday, National Under-17 assistant coach Duane Richardson and manager Aaron Pollard went to various schools and urged players to sign registration forms for Morvant Caledonia—often without the chance to discuss the matter with their parents and club coaches first.

The TTFA Media said the initiative was recommended by head coach Russell Latapy and supported by technical director Anton Corneal. However, it provoked a furious response from schools, club coaches and parents.

Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) general secretary Justin Latapy-George assured members of the public that, while the football body is still interested in participating in the youth competition, there is no chance that the national team will play as a club.

“What we have done is [write] to the League requesting its consideration to allow the Association’s National Under-17 Team to compete in the Under-18 Division of the Pro League,” Latapy-George told TTFA Media. “We believe that we have submitted a request that will receive favourable consideration. However, irrespective of the final decision of the League, it is important that I extend thanks for their consideration.

“It is pivotal that I again note that if our application is accepted that the team will compete as the National Under-17 Team.”

Corneal was on the coaching staff on the two occasions whenat Trinidad and Tobago qualified for World Cup Finals, first the Under-17’s in the Republic of Korea in 2007 and then the Under-20’s in Egypt in 2009.  And he is certain that their participation in the youth league will work well for them.

“We feel this is the best way to go in terms of trying to ensure that the teams are in active competition over a specific period, which falls in line with their preparations prior to the Concacaf qualifying matches,” said Corneal. “We have seen what doing this in the past has done—case in point, the 2009 team that went on to qualify for the U-20 World Cup.

“And coupled with the international matches that the FA may be able to organise along the way, this could only positively assist us in preparing the teams going into the qualifiers.”

In other news, the Trinidad and Tobago Women’s National Team has scheduled two friendly matches against Panama on Thursday 22 and Saturday 24 March.

The Women Soca Warriors face Panama from 6.30pm on Thursday at the Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva and from 4pm on Saturday at the Mannie Ramjohn Stadium in Marabella.

A little too late! Pro League blanks T&T National U-17s; half-measure in the works.
By Roneil Walcott (Wired868).


A little too late! That, according to TT Pro League acting CEO Julia Baptiste, is the reason why the Trinidad and Tobago Men’s Under-17 Team has not had its application to play in the Under-18 Division of the ongoing Youth Pro League (YPL) approved. The application simply came a little too late.

Baptiste, who has just been promoted from general secretary following the resignation in quick succession of long-standing CEO Dexter Skeene and Chairman Sam Phillip, told Wired868 that the decision to turn down the Under-17’s request was made in the best interest of the YPL since almost half of the season is already in the books.

“With so many match days already gone,” Baptiste said, “I thought it would not have been in the (League’s) best interest to enter the National Under-17 team at the time. It was just me giving consideration to the integrity of the League table. […] I felt it was the best decision to leave it as is.”

The National Under-17’s, coached by former national standout Russell Latapy and managed by Aaron Pollard, had hoped to get a run-out in the YPL competition to provide them with sustained match practice. But, Baptiste pointed out, with four games already gone in its season, this year’s competition will see one more round of league matches followed by a knockout tournament.

And even if the Under-17’s registration were completed in time for action this weekend, they would have been able to contest at most five matches in the League. Furthermore, as the current pool of National Under-17 players features youngsters attached to clubs in both the Under-16 and Under-18 Divisions of the YPL, the transferring of players could, in Baptiste’s eyes, have proven problematic and would have potentially put the League on hold.

The new CEO gave the assurance that the League’s decision would have been different if the season were longer than its current one round plus knockout schedule.

The National Under-17s were bidding to claim the spot in the Under-18 category left vacant by Morvant Caledonia United, whose co-founder, Jamaal Shabazz, informed the League of the club’s inability to field an Under-18 team for the current YPL season.

Baptiste told Wired868 that Caledonia had been completely removed from the Under-18 Division so that teams did not benefit from their withdrawal by way of additional points for forfeited games. Inserting the Under-17s at the midway point of the competition, she suggested, would have created a grey area with respect to determining whether or not teams had received points for the games which “Cale” should have played.

Initially, last month, Pollard and National Under-17 assistant coach Duane Richardson informed members of their 40-plus player pool that they were required to sign transfer documents for Caledonia in order to turn out in the Under-18 Division of the YPL competition. However, the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) quickly reversed its position and proposed that the National Under-17s play under their own identity, a move which was recommended by Latapy and supported by Technical Director Anton Corneal.

In the end, their late bid for a YPL spot proved unsuccessful although plans are underway to arrange friendly games for Latapy’s squad against the top flight clubs.

The Under-18 Division is currently headed by Club Sando, who lead three-time and defending champions San Juan Jabloteh on goal difference, with Jabloteh having a game in hand. The “San Juan Kings” have swept all three age groups of the YPL over the past three seasons and they currently sit in first and third spots in the Under-16 and Under-14 Divisions respectively.

In the middle of conducting a CONCACAF D-License coaching course in Guyana, Corneal could not be reached for comment on the collapse of the plan. Wired868 was also unable to reach Latapy.

TTFA General Secretary Justin Latapy-George declined comment on what lies ahead for the Under-17’s and would say only that he had no problem with the TTPL’s decision to turn down the application.

“For me, it’s not a matter of being surprised,” he said, “as the League has its autonomy.”

Team manager, Pollard, declined comment on why an approach was not made to the Pro League prior to the start of the YPL season, opting instead to reiterate the technical staff’s mission for the National Under-17s.

“Our goal is to prepare our boys to the best of our abilities,” Pollard declared, “with the resources we have available.”

“The Under-18 League would have served as good practice matches for the boys [but] we have the option to organise practice matches against [local] teams who are at a good standard.”

Director of football Muhammad Isa revealed that the Pro League has offered a compromise of sorts to the National Under-17s, which should ensure Latapy’s charges still see some action. The new proposal is that Youth Pro League clubs will take turns facing the young Soca Warriors once a week, possibly on Thursdays, in exhibition matches.

So, although there will be no points at stake, there should be games for the national youth team.

The National Under-17 Team is aiming to avoid a repeat of the 2017 campaign when the Young Warriors failed to advance past the CFU stage, despite playing on home soil.

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

T&T U-17s drawn with Mexico, Jamaica and Bermuda; one win will take Warriors into KO stage.
By Lasana Liburd (Wired868).


The Trinidad and Tobago Men’s National Under-17 Team could get within 90 minutes of a Peru 2019 FIFA World Youth Championship spot with just two wins from four qualifying matches, which includes fixtures against Bermuda and, possibly, Haiti.

The junior Soca Warriors, ranked 10th in Concacaf in their age group behind regional neighbours like Jamaica, Cuba and Haiti, should not have felt too hard-done by the draw today, which placed Trinidad and Tobago in Group E with Mexico, Jamaica and Bermuda.

Only one team from that quartet will be eliminated at the group stage, which means T&T can get to the knockout stage with just one win.

Whether the inactive junior Soca Warriors can manage even that much is another question entirely. The National Under-17 outfit have not trained since April 2018 while their last international game was on 17 August 2017, when they lost 8-1 to Jamaica at the Concacaf Under-15 Championship.

At present, the Under-17s—who were previously coached by Russell Latapy—do not even have a technical staff in place. The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association’s (TTFA) Board of Directors is expected to discuss their fate in a meeting tomorrow.

TTFA president David John-Williams has not responded to questions on the status of the National Under-17 Team for the past three months.

Today’s Concacaf draw saw the confederation split in two with 19 nations competing in a qualifying round from 16 March while the top 16 seeded youth teams enter at the final stage from 1 May.

The four group winners from the qualifying round advance to the knockout stage of the Concacaf Championship along with 12 from the 16 teams in the final round. And the four semifinalists qualify automatically for the Peru Under-17 World Cup.

Trinidad and Tobago open their campaign against Bermuda on 1 May at the IMG Academy campus in Bradenton, Florida while they tackle Jamaica and Mexico on 3 and 5 May respectively.

One win from their three group matches will see T&T pitted against the Group G runner-up, which is likely to be either Haiti or El Salvador. A second triumph could put the junior Soca Warriors into the quarterfinals where they could face Mexico again with a World Cup place on the line.

If Trinidad and Tobago finish as Group E runners-up—which would require a result against Jamaica—they could end up challenging Honduras for a World Cup place instead at the Round of Eight.

The TTFA Board should rule tomorrow if the Under-17 Team will get a chance to chase their World Cup dreams at all.

At present, the John-Williams-led football body does not have a technical committee or a technical director—the latter, Anton Corneal, downed tools last month due to broken financial promises from the TTFA—while several national coaches are unpaid.

The only good thing is that they have 3 practice games....once they make it 3rd on the group they move on to the next phase.
They better use those games wisely.

Stern John appointed U-17 Men’s team head coach
TTFA Media


Stern John, the former Trinidad and Tobago prolific goalscorer and current Senior Men’s Team Assistant Coach has been named as the head coach of this country’s Under 17 Men’s Team.

John’s appointment was approved by the Board of the TTFA on Monday and his assignment begins immediately as he moves in to prepare the Trinidad and Tobago team for the CONCACAF Under 17 Men’s Championship in May which also serves as the CONCACAF qualifiers for the 2019 FIFA Under 17 Men’s World Cup in Peru. T&T faces Bermuda in its opening game on May 1st at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida to be followed by clashes with Jamaica (May 3rd) and Mexico on May 5th.

In a reaction to his first national team head coach appointment, the former Birmingham City forward said he eagerly awaiting the commencement of his duties as he seeks to lead T&T into the knockout phase and subsequently Peru 2019.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity for me and I’m excited for the challenge. It’s not an easy challenge but I’m excited and I’m relishing the opportunity to work with the youngsters,” John told TTFA Media on Tuesday.

Leading the national team for the first time is an honour for the ex-Sunderland and Southampton marksman who has also led Central FC as head coach in the T&T Pro League and Concacaf competitions.

“I’ve been working with the Trinidad and Tobago Senior Men’s team for a couple years and also with Central FC so I have a little experience under my belt. Hopefully I can continue with my experience and bring something to the youth team. It’s definitely an exciting period to be serving as head coach of a national team for my country. I’ve played at every level and now getting a chance to lead from the front and to work with upcoming players is a big deal for me. I’d like to thank the heads at the TTFA for giving me this opportunity to make another contribution.

“I think we are going to have to look at players and definitely hit the ground running . I’m ready to start working and Ive already contacted some staff members who I want on my staff. I’m looking at some young players at home and abroad so hopefully we can start soon because we don’t have a lot of time so hopefully we can get a team going to prepare for the tournament,” John continued.

The ex-Columbus Crew player says he has already assesses the group opponents that T&T will face in May.

“I think from watching the teams we will play against I think we have a great opportunity. Three teams will come out of the group and the main thing in these competitions is to try and win your first game. It’s not going to be an easy challenge but I think we have the quality in the players in Trinidad and Tobago. We have a good bunch of young players who played under Russell (Latapy) before and I think I just have to continue on what he’s done before and keep building and working with the team,” John said.

Congrats, Stern?

Should we start gathering funds now to pay the new coach at least a honorarium? Or should we direct that $ to Latapy and sort Stern later?

It's always hard to tell in these matters.

John names his Assistants for Under 17 Team

John names his Assistants for Under 17 Team
TTFA Media


Stern John has finalised part of his technical staff for the Men’s National Under 17 team that has commenced preparations for the CONCACAF U-17 Men’s Championship and World Cup qualifiers starting May 1st at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida.

John was named as head coach by the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association earlier this month. One of his assistant coaches will be former Senior Men’s Team captain Kenwyne Jones. The 34-year-old former UK and US-based professional will be joined by previous Under 17 team assistant coach Caleb De Souza as John’s second assistant coach. The goalkeeper coach is Ross Russell, another former T&T national player and current goalkeeper coach of the Men’s Senior Team. Devin Elcock is the equipment manager and Aaron Pollard is the team manager. Both Pollard and Elcock were also assigned to the Under 17 team in 2016/2018. The rest of the technical staff will be confirmed later this week.

John stated that he was satisfied with the personnel that will work alongside him in preparing the team in the best possible way for the competition in May.

“We had our first couple of sessions on the weekend and it was important that we hit the ground running because we don’t have a lot of time. But at the same time I believe we have a group of very capable individuals who will serve on the technical staff to ensure the team is prepared in the best possible way for the competition in May,” John told TTFA Media.

“Everyone understands his roles and responsibilities. The Football Association is on board with us and with the right level of support, I am optimistic that we go about the preparation of this team in a most professional manner to get the boys up to scratch so that we can go to Florida and compete in May. We’ve already seen several groups of players and our intention is to also stage a combine in the United States later this month to have a look at the talent that is available to us out there. We will release more concrete details on that before the end of this week,” John added.

Trinidad and Tobago have been given automatic qualification into the Championship round of the CONCACAF Under 17 Men’s Championship which serves as World Cup qualification for the 2019 FIFA Under 17 Men’s World Cup in Peru.

T&T are in Group E alongside defending champions Mexico, Jamaica and Bermuda. John’s Men will take on Bermuda on May 1st, Jamaica on May 3 and Mexico on May 5th

The 2019 edition of the Under-17 Championship, to be hosted at the IMG Academy campus in Bradenton, Florida, will be disputed in three rounds. The first-round qualifiers will take place March 16-24 (Groups A and C) and April 1-9 (Groups B and D), while the Final Championship (Groups E, F, G, H and knockout stage) will take place May 1-16.

After round-robin play, the top three finishers in each of the groups will qualify for the knockout stage, joining the four group winners of the Qualification Stage in the Round of 16. The knockout stage of the competition will be played in its entirety in a single match elimination format, with the semifinalists automatically qualifying for the FIFA U-17 World Cup Peru.

Stern unveils National U-17 staff, Kenwyne Jones hired as assistant coach but TTFA board in the dark.
By Wired868.com.


Former Trinidad and Tobago international captain and England Premier League forward Kenwyne Jones will serve as assistant coach for the National Under-17 Team, as head coach Stern John revealed his technical staff this evening.

Jones played alongside John for the Soca Warriors at the 2006 World Cup while both have top flight experience in England. John played for Birmingham and Sunderland in the Premiership while Jones represented Southampton, Sunderland, Stoke City and Cardiff City.

John and Jones, according to a release from the TTFA Media, will work alongside a second assistant coach, Caleb De Souza, as well as goalkeeper coach Ross Russell, equipment manager Devin Elcock and team manager Aaron Pollard. De Souza, Elcock and Pollard are survivors from the technical staff that worked with previous head coach, Russell Latapy.

The coaching appointments were made without approval by the TTFA board, according to board member Keith Look Loy. The TTFA board is due to meet on 12 March to discuss the formal staffing of the national youth team

John, who vowed to hit the ground running with the national youth team, said he is satisfied with the pool of abilities within the technical staff he named today.

“I believe we have a group of very capable individuals who will serve on the technical staff to ensure the team is prepared in the best possible way for the competition in May,” he told the TTFA Media. “Everyone understands his roles and responsibilities. The Football Association is on board with us and, with the right level of support, I am optimistic that we go about the preparation of this team in a most professional manner to get the boys up to scratch; so that we can go to Florida and compete in May.

“We’ve already seen several groups of players and our intention is to also stage a combine in the United States later this month to have a look at the talent that is available to us out there. We will release more concrete details on that before the end of this week.”

The entire National Under-17 Team staff agreed to work without remuneration, with the current executive of the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA)—led by president David John-Williams—still unable to pay coaching staff on several teams.

At present, the TTFA is operating without a technical director or properly functioning technical committee, as Anton Corneal withheld his services due to John-Williams’ failure to fulfil the terms of his contract while the technical committee fell apart soon after the controversial appointment of National Senior Team head coach Dennis Lawrence in January 2017.

John’s coaching experience comprises of two years as assistant coach at Central FC, a year and a half as head coach at the same club and two years as assistant to Lawrence with the National Senior Team.

Jones made his coaching debut in mid-2018 when he served as assistant to Queen’s Royal College head coach Nigel Grosvenor.

De Souza, a former St Mary’s College midfielder, served as Latapy’s assistant, two years ago, when the National Under-15 outfit were mauled at Concacaf level—they conceded 21 goals in four successive losses, including an 8-1 loss to Jamaica. He does not coach competitively in Trinidad.

Russell does bring some experience as head coach to the staff, despite operating as a goalkeeping coach. A former Defence Force head coach, Russell has won two Pro League titles and an array of knockout competitions while he also served as an international head coach at Women’s National Senior Team and Men’s National Under-17 Team level.

The current National Under-17 squad begin their World Youth Cup qualifying campaign at Concacaf level on 1 May when they challenge Bermuda in what could be a decisive affair.

Trinidad and Tobago are grouped with Bermuda, Jamaica and Mexico and one from the quartet will be eliminated while the other three advance to the quarterfinal round.

I like Kenwyne's inclusion. Let's consider it as another way of him giving back to T&T.

Youth footballers could sit CSEC in US.
By Walter Alibey (Guardian).


T&T’s Un­der-17 foot­ballers, who are ex­pect­ed to take the CSEC Ex­ams in May could have an op­tion of sit­ting it in the Unit­ed States, a top T&T Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion (TTFA) of­fi­cial has said.

It is one of sev­er­al con­sid­er­a­tions cur­rent­ly be­fore the board of the TTFA to deal with the clash in dates for the CSEC ex­ams and the CON­CA­CAF U-17 Men’s Cham­pi­onship, which is al­so be­ing used as a World Cup Qual­i­fi­er, from May 1 in Flori­da, Unit­ed States.

The board is set to meet for a sec­ond time this week on the mat­ter as the foot­ball as­so­ci­a­tion moves swift­ly to en­sure that the ed­u­ca­tion and life of no young play­ers are af­fect­ed by the tour­na­ment.

The of­fi­cial, who spoke un­der con­di­tions of anonymi­ty, said they have al­ready reached out to the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion to see what can be done.

"We are not the ones who set the dates for the tour­na­ment, but we are do­ing our re­search to de­ter­mine if the ex­am can be done out­side. We are not sure as yet, but it’s not the first time we have been faced with this sit­u­a­tion," the of­fi­cial said.

Yes­ter­day An­ton Corneal, tech­ni­cal di­rec­tor of lo­cal foot­ball, who has faced sim­i­lar cir­cum­stances in the past, said the so­lu­tion is to call the min­istry of ed­u­ca­tion and ask for their ad­vice on it. In the past, play­ers were asked to leave the tour­na­ment and re­turn af­ter they are fin­ished.

"An­oth­er op­tion is for the play­ers to take the ex­am af­ter the tour­na­ment if that can be al­lowed. What­ev­er’s the case, they must be guid­ed by the min­istry," Corneal said.

The ju­nior "War­riors" re­ceived au­to­mat­ic qual­i­fi­ca­tion in­to the Cham­pi­onship and will be­gin their cam­paign on May 1 at the IMG Acad­e­my in Braden­ton with ac­tion in Group E, fea­tur­ing de­fend­ing cham­pi­on Mex­i­co, Ja­maica, Bermu­da and T&T. This will co­in­cide with the stag­ing of groups F, G and H, as well as the knock­out stage.

The ju­nior War­riors will be­gin against Bermu­da on May 1, be­fore meet­ing Ja­maica and Mex­i­co in that or­der on May 3 and 5, re­spec­tive­ly.

The tour­na­ment ac­tu­al­ly gets go­ing March 16-24 for Groups A and C and con­tin­ues from April 1-9 with ac­tion in groups B and D.

CSEC ex­ams be­gin on May 3 with Phys­i­cal Ed­u­ca­tion and Sport; May 6- Vi­su­al Arts, Chem­istry, Mu­sic and Tex­tiles and Cloth­ing; May 7- Caribbean His­to­ry, In­dus­tri­al Tech­nol­o­gy, Me­chan­i­cal En­gi­neer­ing; May 8- Tech­ni­cal Draw­ing, Agri­cul­tur­al Sci­ence; May 9- So­cial Stud­ies (1&2); May 10- Eng­lish Lit­er­a­ture (1&2); May 13- Prin­ci­ples of Ac­counts (1&2); May 14- Eng­lish Lan­guage (1&2); May 15- Math­e­mat­ics (1&2); and May 16- Ge­og­ra­phy, Agri­cul­tur­al Sci­ence, In­dus­tri­al Tech­nol­o­gy, Elec­tri­cal and Elec­tron­ics.

Ex­ams con­tin­ue on May 17 with Eng­lish Lan­guage 3/2 and Re­li­gious Ed­u­ca­tion, be­fore re­sum­ing on May 20.

New as­sis­tant coach Ken­wyne Jones said he is un­sure of how many play­ers are like­ly to be af­fect­ed by the clash in dates but his squad is set to be trimmed from 38 this week. The un­for­tu­nate clash in date will af­fect young stu­dent/play­ers through­out the Caribbean.

Mean­while, William Wal­lace, pres­i­dent of the Sec­ondary Schools Foot­ball League (SS­FL) said he is con­fused by the CON­CA­CAF’s sched­ul­ing of the tour­na­ment at the time when re­gion­al stu­dent/foot­ballers will be in­volved in ex­ams.

"They (CON­CA­CAF) are sup­posed to be aware of this," Wal­lace said.

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

Standing on its own, the idea of a combine in the US is a good one. I hope Stern finds a player or three to his liking.

However, those of us who have long called for the maintenance of a database of eligible players would suggest that the logistics of any such camp should be driven by the data, not by the tail wagging the dog.

Yes, better to do something rather than nothing, but this something could have been conceived without regard to who would coach the squad.

If we look at the symptoms and drill down, we'll find that this 11th hour nod to foreigners is essentially another manifestation of a rotten core at the HQ of football.
