Anyone know what the story is with St. Anthony's playing in Stoke City kits? I assume it has something to do with Kenwyne Jones, but is it a proper partnership, with opportunities for players etc?  :beermug:

I think there was a visit and a donation by team officials back when Kenwyne was still with Stokes.

Pres, Arima secure zonal crowns.
By Andrew Gioannetti & Nigel Simon (Guardian).


Needing just a draw, Presentation College San Fernando instead clocked in a last minute goal to add the icing on the cake in securing its 11th straight victory and the South Zone title with a narrow 1–0 victory over Shiva Boys in the BGTT/First Citizens Secondary Schools Football League, yesterday.

Playing at the Manny Ramjohn Stadium, Marabella, Presentation, managed to dethrone Shiva after scoring the only goal through an added-time effort from Renaldo Atwell, as the team was determined to keep its 100 per cent winning streak from the start of the season in tact.
 
The final score was a mirror result of the 1–0 win that the Shawn Cooper-coached Presentation secured in the first leg. “Pres” copped the title with a match to spare, with its final match against Pleasantville now irrelevant.

And while Presentation was celebrating, so too were the East Zone’s Arima North which claimed a similarly nailbiting 1–0 victory over Trinity East Secondary, to claim similar honours. Both teams have secured a spot in the SSFL Boys’ Big-Four competition, where they are now scheduled to face each other in the semifinal on October 29, at the Larry Gomes Stadium, Arima. Rondell Elie got the lone goal in the 33rd minute for Arima North.
 
The “Dial Dynamos”, who came from behind to earn a hard fought 2–2 draw with Trinity East in the first round, held a three-point lead over St Augustine, which had one match left and needed a win to cement the crown with third placed San Juan North (20 points from ten matches) still in the hunt. In the two other matches, San Juan North squandered a first-half 2–0 lead and had to settle for a 2–2 draw with St Augustine while last year’s winner, El Dorado East blanked relegated Toco, 3–0.
 
Up North, St Anthony’s College carried its unbeaten run to 30 matches, even though it was made to wait until at least one match to retain the zonal title, as the “Tigers” and East Mucurapo Secondary played to a 1–1 stalemate, at Fatima Ground.

With the first half ending scoreless, Mucurapo was the first to strike, as the crafty Aaqil Campbell found himself in the right place at the right time to tap in a close range effort, in the 51st minute, after an original attempt on goal was parried into his path by St Anthony’s goalkeeper Jevon Sample.

The goal which followed in the 75th minute by substitute Dwayne Calliste may well have been the goal of the season, as the player who was only on for five minutes, connected with Xavier Rajpaul’s corner for a clinical overhead “bicycle” kick which soared into the back of the net.
 
St Mary’s College, meanwhile, bounced back from its loss to St Anthony’s College two weeks prior to take a 1–0 win over Trinity, with Jelani Christopher scoring in the 33rd minute. Christopher also received a red card, even after being substituted for his choice words at the match official.

The race for the Central Zone will go down to Wednesday’s final round of matches after Chaguanas North pulled of its second win of the season against champions Carapichaima East at Carapichaima, 3–1 led by a double from David Maloney.
 
Maloney opened the scoring for Chaguanas in the 19th minute to lead 1–0 at the half, but the league’s top scorer Shaquille Holder then wasted a chance to get “Caps” level when he muffed a penalty in the 65th minute before making amends 20th minutes later from close range for his team to trail, 2–1.

However, with a minute left in regulation time, Jaron Humphrey sealed all three points for the visitors at 3–1 while Seon Prince then missed a second penalty for Carapichaima on the stroke of full-time. The win lifted Chaguanas North to 23 points from nine matches, two ahead of Carapichaima which has the possibility of its 2–1 loss to the new leaders in the first round being reverse to a 3–0 win due to protest which will be heard tomorrow by the league’s Disciplinary Committee.
 
Over in Tobago, Scarborough Secondary opened a four-point lead at the top of the standings with a hectic 5–3 victory over Roxborough Secondary, while second-placed Speyside failed to maintain momentum as it dropped to a 1–0 defeat to second-to-last Signal Hill. The result meant that Scarborough is just one win away from securing the title. They will come up against Mason Hall on Wednesday.

Cobham nets 8 in Vessigny goal spree.
T&T Guardian Reports.


National youth player Tineisha Cobham put on an inspired performance as she slotted home an impressive eight goals to lead league runner-up Vessigny Secondary to the perfect start in its defence of the title with a 15-0 drubbing of Senior Division leader Point Fortin West, in the BGTT/First Citizens Girls Secondary Schools Football League InterCol South Zone quarterfinal, on Thursday.
 
After leading 8-0 at the half, Cobham continued to impress alongside Javannah Moreno and national teammate Khadidra Debisette, who completed a hat-trick and a brace, respectively. Aviva Vesprey and Tleasha Webb got the other goals for Vessigny.
 
The win put Vessigny into the semifinal, where it is scheduled to meet the winner of Fyzabad’s clash with Pleasantville, which was carded to play last evening. Debe, the runaway champions of South was on a bye, and will go up against Point Fortin East in the semifinal. Point Fortin East came up against another Senior Division team, Siparia East, and emerged easy 3-1 winners.
 
In the North/East playoffs, Providence, which was in the running for the zonal league crown until the last match day took an expected easy win over Senior Division’s Success Laventille. Standout players Chelcy Ralph and Jordan Van
 
Reeken recorded a hat-trick each, with Kelly-Ann Arrindell adding to the rout with one goal. The comfortable win put Providence into Sunday’s quarterfinal stage, where it will meet Toco Secondary. The other finalist from last year’s National InterCol, Roxborough Secondary, faced early elimination from the competition after suffering an embarrassing 6-0 defeat to Scarborough Secondary.

'Tigers' repeat in SSFL North Zone
By Roger Seepersad (Express).


St Anthony's College weathered the onslaught of a determined Fatima College football unit to win their third consecutive BGTT/First Citizens Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) North Zone title with a 0-0 draw in their replay, at St Anthony's Ground, Westmoorings, yesterday.

Both sides looked evenly matched when the game got under way, and each team created some good scoring opportunities early on to the delight of the crowd whose voices grew louder as the match unfolded.

Fatima knew they had to win to stop the "Tigers" from repeating as North Zone champs, and had a chance to put their hosts under some early pressure with Seon Thomas forcing a save from the St Anthony's goalkeeper Javon Sample in the third minute.

Fatima were back on the attack in the 16th minute when Omari George took advantage of a defensive error, but his shot was eventually saved by Sample.

At the other end, St Anthony's answered, but Savion Kerton's effort was saved by Deandre Villaroel.

Keane McIvor also had a good game for St Anthony's. Fighting for possession down the left side, he found Shaquille Long in the middle, but Long could not beat the Fatima keeper.

The second half played out much like the first with both sides creating good opportunities to score, but they just could not find the back of the net.

The anticipation mounted coming down to the end of the match. The Fatima supporters got behind their players, spurring them on for a last minute onslaught which kept the home team defending for much of the last ten minutes.

St Anthony's soaked up the late pressure, content that a draw would eventually earn them the hat-trick of titles.

St Anthony's will now play the winners of the Central Zone in the BGTT "Big 5" competition, at Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva next Tuesday.

The Central Zone crown will either go to Carapichaima East Secondary or Chaguanas North Secondary.

Chaguanas North are currently at the top of the standings, but that could change given the result of the disciplinary hearing today to determine the first leg, which Chaguanas North won 2-1 over "Caps".

If that result is reversed, then "Caps" will win the Central Zone even before the final round of matches, tomorrow.

The other zonal champions who have already been crowned are Arima North Secondary in the East Zone and Presentation College San Fernando in the South.

‘Tigers’ celebrate north title again.
T&T Guardian Reports.


Despite a flurry of opportunities and half chances, Fatima College failed to break down a stubborn St Anthony’s College team, which after playing to a 0-0 draw at home, successfully defended its BGTT/First Citizens Secondary Schools Football League North Zone title, for the second time, yesterday.
 
The Nigel Grosvenor-coached “Westmooring Tigers”, which won the North Zone title for three straight years, sealed its spot at the top of the seven-team standings with an unassailable 26-point tally, four more than East Mucurapo, which has just one match remaining in the roster.
 
St Anthony’s has completed its 12-match league schedule, and will now look ahead to the Big-Five competition, where it is scheduled to meet the winner of the Central Zone. The match was a fairly even one with Fatima having several chances to take an opening lead, if not for a strong St Anthony’s defence.
 
Decent handling and proper positioning from the “Tigers’” custodian Jevon Sample also kept his team in contention. The result meant that St Anthony’s College has gone unbeaten in 31 competitive SSFL and InterCol matches, since the first day of the 2011 season, and is rightfully one of the favourites to retain the overall title this season.
 
Unfortunately, for both the team and the coach, the win was recorded in the absence of Grosvenor, who only arrived from the U-16’s tour of Colombia, to meet the team in mid celebration. Team manager Anthony Clarence expressed much satisfaction in the way the team has defended the title, even without some of its key players who were out due to injuries.
 
“We want to go all the way. But, as champions everyone will be gunning for you. Even though the match was equal, Fatima showed that they were hungry for a result and we know that going forward will bring the same from teams around the country,” said Clarence.
 
He continued, “We cannot lapse. Our next match which will probably be against Carapichaima, will be difficult, so the players will continue working hard.” While St Anthony’s cannot be reached in the final standing, East Mucurapo is also out of reach from the five other teams for the runners up spot.
 
However, the teams which are placed from third to seventh in the standings, will be trying either to seal their places or advance in the standings with the final round of matches to be played on Wednesday. This will determine their positions in the Coca Cola InterCol Zonal quarterfinals.
 
Also to be decided are the disciplinary committee’s rulings of matches in the Central and Tobago Zones. The ruling of the match between Chaguanas North and Carapichaima East Secondary, in which the former took a 2-1 win in controversial fashion, will be decided before lunchtime today. If Carapichaima is awarded three points, the team will move to the top of the standings, with one match remaining.
 
In Tobago, Scarborough will lift the title with a victory over Mason Hall, when the two teams clash tomorrow. Presentation College San Fernando (South) and Arima North (East) are the two teams which have already confirmed their zonal title status, and a place in the SSFL Big-Five competition.

Champion Vessigny stays on track among girls.
T&T Guardian Reports.


Reigning champions Vessigny Secondary inflicted an 8-1 beatdown on Pleasantville Secondary to march into the final of the South Zone BGTT/First Citizens Secondary Schoolgirls Football League, yesterday. In the resheduled match which would determine the other finalist, Vessigny made light work of Pleasantville which it defeated twice in league action this season, with a combined aggregate of 8-0.
 
Jayrich Ferguson, Khadidra Debisette and Teneisha Cobham scored a double each, while Deja Lam and Khadidra Debisette got the other goals for Vessigny. Pleasantville Secondary got its only goal from Jenna John. With the win, Vessigny will now meet league winner Debe Secondary, on Thursday at the Manny Ramjohn Stadium, in the South final. Debe emerged 2-0 winners over Point Fortin East in the other semifinal, on Sunday.
 
Trinidad finalist St Francois took a spot in Thursday’s North/East semifinal after dropping El Dorado 1-0. They will meet San Juan North, while Providence takes on the winner of the match between the league top team this season, St Augustine Secondary and Bishop’s Secondary.
 
In Tobago, Scarborough took a spot kick win (4-3) over Signal Hill after the two teams played to a 2-2 draw at full time. They meet Bishops, which eased past Mason Hall 3-0 in the other semifinal. The final will take place on Thursday at the Dwight Yorke Stadium.

One of these days we will get some even reporting in the media as it relates to school football. 

So far on the sports news highlights I see one 10sec clip of Naps playing PVille (I think), but they always showing highlights of the North and East zones.  Don't even talk about the Central zone...even worse for reporting.

Pres captured the South zone with a game in hand and they wrote six lines...primarily about the stats.  St. Anthony's captured the North Zone and the two dailies carrying a ball by ball commentary about the game.

 :cursing:

Which about to end in a week or so.  ;)

Just imagine Sportsmax All Access...a Jamaican production...had to show a clip on the current Pres team.  They interviewed a couple of the stand-out players and the coach.  All the while our media like they fraid to travel out of POS.

gas is expensive

the news papers are in Port of Spain ,

which news man is willing to drive all the way down south to talk to school children footballers.

Fact is it is easier to just use the schools that are closer....

Yes you are correct...we play Arima on the 29th, then travel to Tobago a couple days after....whilst the north team (St. Anthony's) play the less fancied Central team, and then move on to the finals.

This Big 5 should have been a round robin to really see who comes out on top.

i don't mind having to play the extra game..but i find that should rotate through the teams by year..so one year south play 2, one year east, etc..round robin may be the fairest but then wouldn't really get a "final" with that kinda knockout vibe

it used to be round robin back in de day when it was big 7 and big 8  when central became their own zone.  However with the travel arrangements to and from tobago plus trying to shorten the season it became a knockout.

That is correct.  Sando Tech used to be in the fray in those days as well.

Pres kept their 100% record in the league with a 4-0 win over P'ville.  Big 7 was still around when I left school in the 90s.  I think it was around 2000 it became knockout.

‘Pres’ Sando finish perfect in South Zone.
T&T Newsday Reports.


PRESENTATION San Fernando finished their campaign in the BGTT/First Citizens Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) Championship Division South Zone with a 100-percent record when they spanked Pleasantville 4-0 at the Manny Ramjohn Stadium, Marabella yesterday.

Presentation have defeated all and sundry in their 12 matches this season and will be gearing for tougher challenges in the SSFL Big Five competition, which kicks off on Monday.

Dethroned South Zone champs Shiva Boys were held to a 1-1 away draw to St Benedict’s at La Romain while Princes Town crushed Moruga 6-1.

Arima also completed an unbeaten run in the East Zone when they swept past 2011 winners El Dorado East 4-1. Neveal Hackshaw (10th minute), Shilo Johnson (27th), Kion Joseph (70th) and Kern Roberts (82nd) were the goalscorers for Arima while El Dorado East were rewarded by an item from Mikal Primus (23th).

Trinity East got a pair from Marcel Springer (30th and 33rd) and one apiece from Shaquille Antoine (47th) and Nathan Regis (73rd) as they blanked Toco 4-2 at Trincity while El Dorado West got a strike from Kurdell Chairman as they edged the visiting San Juan 1-0.

Carapichaima retained their Central Zone on Tuesday after the SSFL Disciplinary Committee awarded them three points after overruling a 2-1 loss away to Chaguanas North on September 29. With the result, Carapichaima had an unassailable four-point lead over Chaguanas, entering yesterday’s final day of action.

The 2012 champs pipped hosts Couva 2-1 while Chaguanas trounced hosts Tabaquite 6-2. Presentation Chaguanas earned a 3-0 default victory over Gasparillo and, according to an SSFL official, Gasparillo were unable to field a team due to disciplinary reasons (in their school).

With North Zone winners St Anthony’s on a bye, Mucurapo finished second in the group, despite a 1-0 loss away to lowly Diego Martin.

Third-placed Fatima took care of cellar-placed Trinity 3-1 at the Fatima Ground, Mucurapo while QRC and St Mary’s played to a 1-1 draw at the QRC Ground, St Clair.

The Tobago Zone is yet to be decided, but Signal Hill pipped the visiting Roxborough 2-1 while 2011 winners Scarborough were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Mason Hall.

Presentation, Arima, Carapichaima and St Anthony’s will be turning their attention towards the Big Five tournament.

James keeps Mason Hall alive.
By Clayton Clarke & Andrew Gioannetti (Guardian).


Akini James’ 89th minute close range effort kept title hopeful Mason Hall alive, while denting reigning champion Scarborough’s chances as the two teams played to a 1-1 draw in the Tobago Zone of the BGTT/First Citizens Secondary Schools Football League, yesterday.
 
The all-important goal put Mason Hall on ten points with two matches remaining, and five points less than Scarborough, which has just one remaining. The champions’ objective was to win the match outright and secure another crown. However, it was Mason Hall, led by captain Brandon Joseph which started the brighter of the two teams. 
 
Scarborough eventually got going with right-winger Khislon Morgan and striker Michael Gordon attacking Mason Hall’s goal. Gordon was rewarded in the 20th minute as he outpaced Mason Hall’s defence and scored a simple tap in.
 
Hakeem Legalle missed several attempts to equalise and Mason Hall eventually found the back of the net in the last minute of regulation time in a goalmouth scramble as James got his foot to the ball.
 
Mason Hall will take on Scarborough in a rescheduled match and a potential title decider on Saturday. A win for Mason Hall will see it trail Scarborough by two points, before Mason Hall faces Roxborough in its final league match on Tuesday.
 
With all zonal champions already decided, the divisions played out their final rounds of matches, with only South and Tobago zones having a rescheduled match to complete. Down South, Presentation College continued to impress as it completed the league campaign with another victory, making it 12 wins in as many matches.
 
The team’s leading scorer Shackiel Henry scored yet again. Civaughn Dimsoy bagged a double while Kegan Ellis was the other player on target. All relegated teams have also been determined with the exception of the North Zone.
 
Trinity College faces relegation after falling to Fatima College 3-1. Diego Martin North Secondary had to pull off the upset of the round and did just that with a 1-0 victory over East Mucurapo. Stephon Billingy got the goal for Diego Martin, which may well have been the most important of his career thus far.

Diego North upset 'Compre'
By Mark Pouchet (Express).


Diego Martin North Secondary produced an upset when they edged East Mucurapo Secondary 1-0 yesterday in the final round of the BG T&T/First Citizens Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) North Zone league competition.

Stephan Billingy fired home the only goal in the match to hand his school just their second victory in the North Zone in their debut season.

In the other North Zone matches, Fatima College defeated Trinity College 3-1 at home, while QRC could not make home advantage count and had to settle for a 1-1 scoreline against St Mary's College in their "Old Firm" clash.

In the East, Trinity trumped Toco Secondary 4-2 at home, while Arima North thumped El Dorado East 4-1. El Dorado West narrowly got the better of San Juan North with a 1-0 upset result.

Down South, Princes Town Secondary destroyed Moruga Secondary 6-1, St Benedict's College and Shiva Boys played to a 1-1 draw, and Presentation College shut out Pleasantville 4-0.

In the Central Zone, Carapichaima East topped Couva West 2-1, while Chaguanas North increased their goal advantage with a 6-2 win over Tabaquite.

And across in Tobago, Signal Hill Secondary edged out Roxborough 2-1 while Scarbarough and Mason Hall Secondary could not be separated after regulation time, the game ending 1-1.

Chaguanas North cries injustice.
By Andrew Gioannetti (Guardian).


Chaguanas North Secondary, which was on the receiving end of a decision by the BGTT/First Citizens Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) Disciplinary Committee to reverse its 2-1 victory over Carapichaima East Secondary, has appealed the verdict, which it has described as ‘unjust.’
 
The three points which they won were taken away and given to their opponents, who were also gifted a 3-0 result, which effectively gave them the zonal title. The committee met on Tuesday to debate whether or not Chaguanas North was in breach of the rules when it allowed goalkeeper John Rodney to play against Carapichaima.
 
According to the rules, Rodney, who was transferred to Chaguanas North for the season, was supposed to have a minimum of two CXC passes to represent the school. However, he did not. However, a senior official of Chaguanas North said the school was appealing the decision since it was unfair to the school and these young men who played.
 
The official said the school has an official letter from the Central Zone which gave an all-clear for Rodney to play in the match. “We did not make that decision without first getting permission from the secretary of the zone, Trevor Bridgelalsingh.”
 
He indicated that the school submitted the list of players with supporting documents and was told by Bridgelalsingh that the player would be able to take part in the match. “We definitely got approval from an official who represents the SSFL.”
 
The school noted that it had presented Bridgelalsingh’s letter at the disciplinary hearing, but this had no impact. In addition, Bridgelalsingh also wrote to the committee and acknowledged his mistake in indicating that the player in question was eligible to play.

“We were misled,” claimed the Chaguanas North official. “We were aware that the player was admitted to the school with one pass, and after we wrote to the committee asking for a pardon, Bridgelalsingh responded in writing saying that the team list was satisfactory. We were given the impression that it was safe for Rodney to play.”
 
He continued, “All they had to do was tell us, ‘No, you can’t play him.’ We did not have to play him. He is the reserve goalkeeper, but we gave him a run, like everyone else, with the approval of the SSFL official.”
 
The official said the disciplinary meeting was disappointing since it seemed that a decision was already made before the meeting. “It was too cut and dry,” he said. The school official said that he feels that the young footballers have been punished, even though they did nothing wrong.

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

St Augustine Girls run away on Gibbs hat-trick.
By Andrew Gioannetti (Guardian).


Top forward Chelsea Gibbs sealed a second-half hat-trick to assist undefeated runaway East Zone winners St Augustine Secondary in taking a 7-0 crushing victory over North Zone’s Bishops Anstey, on Tuesday, to land a place in today’s BGTT/First Citizens Secondary Schools Football League North/East semifinal.
 
After taking a modest 2-0 half-time lead with goals from Laurelle Theodore and Ka-die Johnson, St Augustine, added quick fire goals from Celeste Thomas, a second from Theodore and three from Gibbs, who has again been instrumental in the team’s success.
 
The win meant that the Desiree Sargeant-led St Augustine team continued its unbeaten run from the beginning of the season, with only one drawn match in the process.
 
The result saw it seal a deserved place in today’s North/East semifinal, where it will come up against North Zone runner-up Providence Girls Catholic School, at St Anthony’s College Ground, Westmoorings, for a place in next Thursday’s final. The match, along with all other knock-out fixtures today will kick off at 3.45 pm.
 
North Zone champion and finalist of last year’s North/East knockout competition, St Francois Girls’ College, will meet San Juan North Secondary, at QRC Ground, Port-of-Spain.
 
St Francois advanced to the last four phase after sealing a revenge defeat over El Dorado East, the same team which it lost to on penalty kicks in last year’s final.
 
San Juan North, meanwhile, a surprise package, recorded upsets against Arima North Secondary and St Joseph’s Convent, in the preliminary stage and the quarterfinal respectively, to advance.
 
The two winners will meet in the final next Thursday.
 
In South, all eyes will be on the clash of rivals, 2011 national InterCol champions Vessigny Secondary versus undefeated South Zone winner Debe Secondary, in the final at the Manny Ramjohn Stadium, Marabella.
 
Debe recorded an economical 2-0 win over Point Fortin East to reach to the final, while Vessigny went all out in an 8-1 demolition of Pleasantville Secondary, in the two semifinal matches.
The two met twice in the league this season, with Debe winning both legs 3-0 and 2-0.
 
A new champion will also be declared in Tobago today when Bishop’s High School meets Scarborough Secondary in the final.
 
Reigning Tobago InterCol champions Roxborough were brushed aside 6-0 in the quarterfinal by Scarborough, which went on to take a penalty kick win over favourites Signal Hill in the last four stage.

Bishop’s, too has been in fine form in the competition, taking an easy 5-0 win over Senior winners Goodwood, before easing past Mason Hall 3-0.

The final of the Tobago Zone will take place today at the Dwight Yorke Stadium, Bacolet, between Scarborough and Bishop’s. The semi-finals of the combined North/East Zones are on today’s agenda.

St Francois College are due to face San Juan at the QRC Ground in St Clair while St Augustine are scheduled to meet Providence Girls at Westmoorings.
 
Results [North/East Quarterfinal]

St Augustine 7 (Ka-Die Johnson 29th, Laurelle Theodore 36th, 49th, Celeste Thomas 42nd, Chelsea Gibbs 46th, 62nd, 80th) v Bishops North 0
 
Today’s Girls’ InterCol Fixtures [North/East Semifinals]
All matches kick off at 3.45 pm

St Francois v San Juan, QRC Ground, POS
Providence v St Augustine, St Anthony’s Ground, Westmoorings

One of these days we will get some even reporting in the media as it relates to school football. 

So far on the sports news highlights I see one 10sec clip of Naps playing PVille (I think), but they always showing highlights of the North and East zones.  Don't even talk about the Central zone...even worse for reporting.

Pres captured the South zone with a game in hand and they wrote six lines...primarily about the stats.  St. Anthony's captured the North Zone and the two dailies carrying a ball by ball commentary about the game.

 :cursing:

Because St Anthony's is a big team :devil: not to mention we on a 30 game unbeaten streak

Tell dem fellaz nah!!

Bishop's High School wins both Tobago Zone Girls League and Intercol titles. Earlier this week they claimed the league title after beating Signal Hill 4-0 at BHS grounds. They won the Intercol Finals today (Oct 25th 2012) 3-2 over Scarborough Secondary School.

Blessings and Enjoy the night.
