Central F.C. Rocks, Paper, Scissors & Goals
Central F.C. Media Release


Central F.C. lent a hand to DIRECTV on Wednesday when their players and staff supported the company’s international community project, Rocks, Paper, Scissors. This is the second such project carried out in Trinidad by DIRECTV, with North East Stars helping out two years ago when they refurbished the Chaguanas Senior Citizens Home.

This time, the lucky recipient was Woodford Lodge, where the complex will be given a complete facelift. Aside from T&T international goalkeeper, Jan-Michael Williams and midfielder Jason Marcano who scored 8 goals and assisted 7 more this season, General Manager, Norris Ferguson, Assistant First Team Coach, Marc Leslie, Operations Director Kevin Harrison and Managing Director Brent Sancho also attended to show off their painting skills, together with 5 players from the clubs woman’s team.


“We wanted more players to attend but the guys had a game the night before and we wanted to rest them before Friday’s Lucozade Shield semi-final vs North East Stars.” Said Sancho.
The players have already had a busy week with appearances at the Central F.C. Easter Camp at Presentation College, Chaguanas.

“The camp runs until 18th April and costs $200 per week, which includes T shirt and refreshments. On Wednesday 16th, coaches from TTFA will be attending together with Central F.C.’s national team players for an exciting coaching session. We are very grateful for the support of TTFA and look forward to working with them.”

Sancho said that Central F.C. are always pleased to support DIRECTV’s community work. “They are one of the very few companies to understand Corporate Social Responsibility and their projects are always well organised and well supported by their staff.

“It’s always a pleasure to work with Bernard Pantin (DIRECTV CEO),Lindsay Boodoo and the staff.” Said Sancho. “Then on Saturday, our players will be attending another of our sponsors, S.I.S. 35th anniversary events in Diego Martin where they will hold a community 7 a side football tournament.”

Meanwhile, The Sharks are buoyant after another goal fest against Caledonia AIA on Tuesday night when they completed an emphatic 5-1 victory. “We beat Caledonia 4-0 on Friday in the Lucozade Shield and expected some revenge from them last night. To be fair, the first 30 minutes was fairly even, but the difference between the two sides was the quality in front of goal, with Willis Plaza completing his hat trick, while Ataulla Guerra and Sammy Delice bagged a goal apiece.”

Sancho said that with just 4 league games remaining, the million dollar first prize could still be won by 3 clubs. “Obviously, Central has to win their 4 games, but the key fixtures are the two games between W.Connection and Defence Force. Army must win both to have a chance at a top two finish, while Connection have to take at least 3 points from the two games to remain safe. We’d love to see two draws as that would leave Central with a clear shot at the title.”

Sancho said that Central had always aimed for a top two finish. “But now the title is within sight, we want to finish first.” The Sharks are the in form team at the moment, winning 7 games in a row and undefeated since 7th December, a run of 15 games.

“We’re scoring lots of goals and conceding few” said Sancho. “Our last 4 games have seen us score 14 goals and concede just once, (5-1 & 4-0 vs Caledonia, 2-0 vs Point Fortin Civic and 3-0 vs W.Connection) so the guys are confident, but we must take each game on its own merits. We’re the top team in 2014 and everybody wants to beat us.”

Meanwhile, W.Connection will be attending Woodford Lodge to lend a hand to DIRECTV on Thursday before they take on Point Fortin in the second Lucozade Goal Shield semi final on Friday at Ato Boldon Stadium.
Central F.C. face North East Stars at Ato Boldon on Friday 11th April at 6pm in the first Lucozade Goal Shield semi final..

Think of the 2022 conversation regarding reparations as the item tabled for future discussion when initially raised for negotiation during talks in 1834. A lot of intere$t has accrued.

Central F.C. 2 - 1 W.Connection

First, please note that I am drunk!

Ok, so game started fast and busy. Rundell Winchester chased a real lost cause and won, and then had the maturity to beat the keeper. He had absolutely no business to even try to score, but, boy, what a fantastic goal. Within a couple of minutes, Oliver connected with an excellent cross from Goodridge and it was 2-0. Two minutes later, Alvin Jones scored a superb Beckham-esquefree kick. So after around 22 minutes, we had a real game on our hands!
Despite several chances by each team, the game never really reignited. However, Jan-Michael Williams kept the Sharks in the game with a great fingertip save and Connections keeper made 3 point blank saves from three different Central players in a pinball moment.
To be fair, it was a very even game and a great advert for T&T football. Some very silly yellow cards from Brizan and, as usual, some dodgy challenges went unpunished.

Crowd was decent with lots of noise for The Sharks!
Not sure if I should say this, but, hey, I'm a little drunk so here goes.... how many owners/CEOs have won a T&T trophy with two different clubs?  :cheers:

‘Bolting’ Winchester leads Central to 2014 LSGS.
« Reply #618 on: April 26, 2014, 09:35:50 AM »
‘Bolting’ Winchester leads Central to 2014 LSGS.
ttproleague.com.


“We just came out to work hard, motivated by our coach … the best coach in the league, Terry Fenwick,” Central FC’s 20-year-old Tobagonian attacker Rundell Winchester told reporters following his team’s 2-1 win in the Final of the 2014 Lucozade Sport Goal Shield on Friday night.

Winchester couldn’t contain his joy at the Ato Boldon Stadium, and deservingly so. He had just received his winners’ medal and the MVP award, accolades he also picked up in the Final of the First Citizens Cup last October which his side won 2-1 against Defence Force.

Back then at age 19, Winchester had set up an equalising goal before scoring the winner.

Now at age 20 and just over five months later, and still displaying his incredible and deceptive speed, the Trinidad and Tobago forward reminded the thousands of spectators, who packed the Couva venue covered stands, what he is made of.

“In a big game like this it’s about stepping up,” Winchester added. “I am really motivated by my (teammates). They always make me come and work hard and I’m now so happy we came and beat W Connection in a big Final.

“It’s a pleasure that we have put our rivals to shame. I feel so happy. We love it. I’m going to celebrate with my team … Central to the world!”

Two bites in a space of seven minutes and the “Sharks” were leading by two goals before the 20th minute mark with Winchester scoring one and setting up another.

In the 13th minute Winchester, undoubtedly the Usain Bolt of Trinidad and Tobago football, was unleashed by a Willis Plaza pass in midfield and blew past two of the quickest defenders in the league, Daneil Cyrus and Kurt Frederick, before unleashing a half volley past goalkeeper Aquelius Sylvester for a 1-0 score.

Then by the 19th minute Central led 2-0 when a deft header at the far post by 38-year-old midfielder and captain Marvin Oliver, off a Winchester cross, which sunk into Sylvester’s goal.

Winchester explained his joy also belonged to Tobago. He said, “Most Tobagonians don’t come down to Trinidad and shine. I came here and I’m making my Tobago proud and also it’s an honour to be the MVP. I just love the feeling. It’s a great feeling.”

Winchester and teammates Marvin Oliver and Willis Plaza along with Connection’s Hashim Arcia and North East Stars midfielder Keron Cummings all finished joint top scorers with two goals each, while Fenwick was presented with the Coach of the Tournament award.

Two minutes after Central’s second item, Connection were celebrating, and the “Sharks” lead was sliced in half when a 30-yard free-kick blast by Alvin Jones was too hot for former ‘Savonnetta Boys” goalie Jan Michael Williams as it struck the underside of the crossbar and down into the net.

Moments later (Alvin) Jones, who plays as a right fullback, forced a blockout by Williams, and six minutes from time from a 22-yard set piece his on-target strike was measured by the Central goalie, putting it behind for a corner following a handball ruled against Elton John by referee Neal Brizan.

On the other end in the 50th minute, Connection were rescued by (Alvin) Jones, when he wedged a boot into Winchester's within the six yard area, spinning the ball overbar.

Then in the 88th minute Plaza, playing with an injured right foot, executed excellent skill to slip away from three Connection players before having a go at goal above the area which Sylvester blocked out and followed up with a similar save against Winchester before wrapping the second rebound attempt by Jason Marcano.

In the end however, Central, the second season old club, celebrated their second title this season, revenge over the side that defeated them 6-5 on penalties following a 2-2 draw in the Final of the FA Trophy last December, and $44,000 based on the Lucozade Sport Goal Shield winners prize money scheme.

While Connection, also the winners of this season’s Digicel Charity Shield and Toyota Classic, failed to defend the title they lifted in 2009 and 2013. The “Savonnetta Boys” walked away with $16,500 based on the runners-up prize money scheme and medals.

“We started well,” said Connection assistant coach and former standout forward Earl Jean following the match. “In the first 10-15 minutes the game was going well for us but I think we allowed the second goal too easy … too simple. And I think that put us on the back foot.

“We always knew it was going to be a tough game against Central.

“(Looking at the game) we want to be positive. We want to take the good side out of the game. I think we had more possession and that’s what we needed to do and try to control the game a little more.

“(But) I don’t think our strikers are firing on all cylinders and that put us back. We lost (striker) Dimitrie Apai in training (with a knee injury). And (midfielder) Joevin Jones hasn’t played in a while since coming back from injury.

“They (Central) got a victory and that’s it. It’s a big disappointment when you’re defending your trophy and lose,” settled the former St. Lucia international.

Well, I can officially announce that all Central F.C. supporters are now asked to throw their weight behind Connection. The only way Central can finish second is if they win both of their games and Army drop 6 points!
Come on Connection!!!  :wavetowel:

Central F.C. already planning for next season with new additions.

Central F.C. already planning for next season.
Central F.C. Media Release.


There may still be two Pro League games remaining in this season, but Central F.C. have shown that they are already focused on the 2014/5 season by announcing several new signings and successful contract extensions with existing players.

T&T national goalkeeper, Jan-Michael Williams, committed his future to his local club for a further two years, taking him to the end of the 2015-16 Pro League season. 

“We’re hoping to keep most the squad together, so we see no reason not to finalise contracts now” said Managing Director, Brent Sancho. “Players like stability and so do coaches, so in most cases we will be offering two year contracts.”

Sancho said that Williams has had a great season with the club. “He is simply the best keeper in Trinidad” said Sancho. “But more than that, Jan-Michael is an asset to the club off the field. This season, Jan-Michael has been coaching our youth team goalkeepers and visiting schools as part of our Football in the Community program me.”

Sancho said that Williams is a great ambassador for the club and a natural leader in the dressing room. “I’ve been privileged to play in front of some of T&T’s finest keepers” said the 2006 World Cup defender “I’d rate Jan-Michael alongside Shaka Hislop, Kelvin Jack, Clayton Ince and even Crystal Palace’s Italian keeper Julian Speroni”

Sancho said that the majority of the existing squad have shown interest in committing their future to the California based club. “We want a fairly solid idea of who will start next season with Central F.C. before this season ends” said Sancho.

“The problem is that we have worked very hard to market our players overseas, and we may see some of them move away. So we also need to look for top quality players to bring in.”
 
Two the new players joining the squad are 19 year old Denzil “Deo” Daniel, who has been plucked from Central F.C.’s youth program me.

“The great thing about Deo is that he’s a local boy who’s proved his worth in our youth system. Only yesterday, Deo scored a 25 yard rocket against Jabloteh!” Daniel will be a popular signing with supporters as he is from the Enterprise area of Central and is well known in the local football community.

“It’s nice to see Central F.C. fulfilling its promise to recruit local talent” said Sancho. “We expect to see many similar stories over the coming years.”

The other player to join Central F.C. is 16 year old Levi Garcia. The T&T U-17 midfielder made his Pro League debut at age 15 for T&TEC but has played in the Super League with Siparia Spurs. A product of Shiva Boys Hindu College, Garcia played in all three of T&T’s U-17 world cup qualifiers last year including the historic 2-0 defeat of Costa Rica.

“Levi is a special talent” said Sancho. “He’s still young with much to learn, but at Central he has some great role models to learn from such as Ataullah Guerra, Leston Paul, Sean de Silva and Marvin Oliver. “But the youngster hasn’t been signed to warm the bench.

“We want to create a strong squad and Levi will be expected to compete for a starting place and push past those in front of him. He has the ability and the hunger to do just that. I can’t wait to see him in action for The Sharks” said Sancho.

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

Yea heard good things about Garcia - nice catch there. Also good news that you're investing in more than rolling/annual contracts :)

I really hope Central takes a look @ Onasi Forde. He was actually better than Rundell before injuries, but he's back playing now. Good on either flank or through the middle. Rundell probably surpassed him now though
