UTT football programme a success

The victorious UTT 'B' team huddles together in celebration after defeating Roytec 2-1 in the finals of the National Inter-Tertiary Football Tournamen...
The University of Trinidad and Tobago’s (UTT) ‘B’ football team clinched the National Inter-Tertiary football title for the first time in the institution’s history after clinching a narrow 2-1 win over Roytec in the final at the O’Meara Campus, Arima, in December.

However, this historic win for the educational institute was built upon an interesting journey in a tournament dominated by the University of the West Indies (UWI) team.

Revealing some interesting facts about UTT’s challenging journey to the title was the squad’s assistant coach, Andre Sooklal.

UTT’s coaching and managerial team is made up of former national player Anthony Rougier (head coach), Sooklal, Marc Wattie (assistant coach) and Alloy Lee Fai (team manager). This unit was the main driving and motivating force behind the success of the 2012 champions. In an interview with Sooklal recently, he explained the many obstacles the team faced ahead of their inaugural victory.

He revealed that the UTT Scholarship players (‘A’) did not compete in league but were focussing instead on improving their chances of playing professionally.

This meant that Rougier was tasked with the job of competing in the tertiary league and constructing a team excluding scholarship players. The task was even more daunting because Rougier not only had to construct the team from scratch, but also compete without the same resources that were available to the scholarship players. However, Rougier and his managerial team were committed to the cause.

Sooklal explained: “The approach and preparation headed by Anthony Rougier was very unique - his approach from a football aspect to the technical aspect. His ability to embrace new approaches specifically, the player analysis role and his approach in evaluating players was also very unique. Dynamic player analysis, scientific data combined with technology and statistics used to analyse, evaluate and construct tactics based on this data, this approach was essential and because of Rougier’s approach was a perfect complement to this style.” The assistant coach also indicated that the managerial team incorporated the use of several students, an idea that was met with much scepticism. Students are now directly involved in the process and are taught the structure of a professional team and how it is run from a holistic point of view.

Sooklal lauded the coach’s unorthodox approach to coaching a team that has never played together on a field.

“In addition to his training methods and willingness to be innovative in approach, it manifested itself in a team withstanding many obstacles. People were sceptical about the project and often looked at the whole approach with raised eyebrows. Many expected this team made up of students and not the elite athletes that represented the campus as a whole (to fail),” he added.

Ok so question.... What are the 'A' students doing ??

If you are going to UTT on a football scholarship are you not supposed to be playing Football ???
What level are these players playing at ??
So what you are saying is that to make it as a PRO Footballer you cannot play football ??

Would really like someone to explain what I just read.

Realistically UTT should be aspiring to play in the PRO League.... or at least Super League or else what possible benefit would there be in playing(or not playing as it seems) in a league that has no recognition.

Are we going to develop a Draft System where these players can be given an opportunity to join PRO or Super League teams ??

From a close source.

Rougier is not UTT's coach he was helping out the boys because he was doing a course at the Corinth Campus. Those players are the ones who tryout and couldn't make the team and made the UTT second team.

That competition was to low for UTT's scholarship players.

Rougier can get into trouble for saying that he is UTT head coach, he is not employed with UTT.  Rougier is being dishonest [this was a two week competition].

I think Gally is still the UTT head coach if I am not mistaken?

The UTT team won the SFA 2nd. division by ten points and will be promoted to first division this year 2013.

By the way VB, I dealt with Rougier is the past while he was at FC South End and he was very unprofessional.

Rougier is a free loader but was a great player and always thought he would have been better as a coach but he hanging out with Clint Marcelle to much, it rubbing off.

Gally is the head coach for UTT.

Would you care to give an example??


Roug might be having problems with people as a coach but I'm sure many here remember how the TTFF never had a problem with him playing for the Red, White and Black. He never gave us the problems of a Latas and Yorke and he was a general in whatever position we put him in.

I WILL NEVER FORGET how Jack Warner set up the man before teh WC qualifier vs. Canada in 2001, axing him from the team and citing discipline problems when the truth is he and he alone had the balls to talk to Porterfield about coming to practice smelling of alcohol.

Back In The Day: Tony Rougier

Back In The Day: Tony Rougier
Tom Lunn (thetilehurstend.sbnation.com)

For this first-ever segment of ‘Back in the Day’ I thought it would be a good idea to go right into it and hopefully over time we can uncover some very unique stories of what players are up to now. First up though is a player from back in the day that we should all remember well and fondly, mainly for the chant: “Rou Rou Rou Rougier!” Tony Rougier to be specific...

Okay, so it might not be that far back in the day but a quality player to set the bar. The Trinidadian started his senior career at La Brea Angels in 1986, making his way around domestic football teams in his home country before making a prominent move in 1995 to Raith Rovers, where he made his second most appearances for any UK club: 56. But before making his way to Berkshire, he had significant stints at Hibs and Port Vale while also netting a handful of goals making the midfielder well sought after.

Reading signed Rougier in August 2000 for £325,000, which even seems like a lot of money for us now… The price tag was indeed justified and, that year, he helped the team to a play-off final spot, and sadly to bring up the Walsall game, the first of many play-off final disappointments for me personally. But the year later, Rougier helped Reading achieve the promotion to escape what was then ‘Division 2’.

Rougier made a total of 84 domestic appearances for Reading, and six goals to his name was not a bad feat for a midfielder. All in all, quite a significant player to start with for this Back in the Day segment, but a great character to start off with.

But where is he now?
Rougier epitomises a successful football career in the sense that he eventually hung up his boots in 2011, a 25-year career in which he also made a real impact for Trinidad and Tobago for a decade. Usually after such careers players end up continuing on involved with football in some capacity.

Rougier is no different. His time at FC South End ended in 2011 - the team he’d co-founded while also being the technical director/player/manager in the TT Pro League, where his professional career started. That brings us to 2011 and it seems as though there’s very little documented* about his career until recently (*pending more research).

In November 2018, Rou Rou Rou Rougier was inducted into Raith Rovers’ Hall of Fame where he appeared on their TV channel in a great interview.

Here he updates fans on his current involvement in the US, “with New England Revolution, in the MLS coaching the academy team”. He goes on to explain how being inducted was so important to go to and, despite the busy time in the winter for the MLS, he told the managers “I’ve got to go, this is where it all began for me, it doesn’t matter what you guys have got on I’ve got to be here [in Raith]. It was a good reminder when I came over to play and it was raining, you know raining cats and dogs!”

It’s very apparent that Tony still looks back with fondness at his playing career. He doesn’t take it for granted and is almost humbled by his induction, wanting to give back where possible and still shows he’s loyal to the club that gave him the start into a long career overseas. I’m sure he’s still loyal to the Royals too.
