Hughton Hector: Any news on his new team.

Our super left midfielder who became a star in Vietnam with Song Nam Lhe. Got a tiny sweat against New Zealand. Really hoping to see him make it big. Has he left T&T yet? Is he training with PFL teams to keep fit before the next launch out to Asia ... or Europe.

HUGHTUN HECTOR scored in Hà Nội T&T’s 3-0 win over Pune FC n the first round of the Asian Champions League (ACL) play-off on Wednesday, and this is what was said about him:

He heaped praise on his Trinidad and Tobago midfielder Hughtun Hector who scored a gem of a goal with the outside of his foot.

“Hector is our key player in the midfield. He has a good technique, good skills and plays smart football. I am happy with his performance.”

Wha' going on wit' meh boy Hector?

All the football news began drying up ever since he left Song Lam Nghe An and went to T&T Ha Noi.
I hope he is getting match practice at some level as we get closer to time for T&T friendlies.

He's been playing, but his goals have dried up. However, he's also getting experience in the AFC Champions League.

Injury rules Hector out of Gold Cup; Warrior targets 2018 W/Cup return.

Injury rules Hector out of Gold Cup; Warrior targets 2018 W/Cup return.
By Lasana Liburd (Wired868.com).


Diminutive Trinidad and Tobago playmaker Hughtun Hector has lost the opportunity to play in his first CONCACAF Gold Cup tournament after rupturing his Achilles tendon in a Vietnam league match for Hanoi T&T on April 3. Hanoi lost the fixture 1-0 away to Binh Duong.

Hector had a successful operation today but, according to Vietnam doctors, it will be another five to six months before the “Soca Warrior” is fully recovered. The prognosis means that the former W Connection midfielder and Vessigny Secondary schoolboy will miss the 2015 Gold Cup, which kicks off in the United States this July.

Hector, who has 22 full international caps with six goals, has never played in a Gold Cup after he missed the 2013 edition due to his then Vietnam employer Song Lam Nghe’s refusal to let him attend a pre-tournament training camp.

However, he has already turned his attention to the 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign, which starts in November 2015.

“I really wanted to play in the Gold Cup but that can’t happen again,” Hector told Wired868. “Qualifying for the (Russia 2018) World Cup is the most important thing to me now… Everything went well (with my operation) and I’m not getting any pain. I just have to go six weeks with the cast on.

“I’m supposed to come home in two months time to work with the (Trinidad and Tobago) National Team’s doctors to see if I can fit and strong again for the World Cup qualifiers… They say it will take between five to six months to fully recover.”

Hector, 30, broke into Trinidad and Tobago coach Stephen Hart’s first squad last October and has been a fixture for the Warriors ever since. He debuted in the attacking midfield role, just behind the striker, but has been used primarily on the left flank where he steps inside to flood the midfield.

The Vietnam-based midfield ace started in five of the Warriors’ seven 2014 Caribbean Cup assignments including the final against Jamaica, which Trinidad and Tobago lost on penalties.

However, as the Vietnam league ends in September and does not restart until January 2016, Hector would not have played competitive football for eight months when the Warriors start their 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign in November at the penultimate group phase.

He hopes Hanoi T&T agree to loan him back to W Connection but is not certain it would happen.

“We will try our best to see if they will accept me going on loan with Connection because the (Vietnam) season finishes on September 15 (which might be after the local transfer window closes),” said Hector. “I will be (training) with Connection for sure.

“Hopefully there is a (national team) camp so that I can work with them and try to get back fully fit and get some matches. But I don’t know.”

At present, Hector is in the second season of a three-year contract with Hanoi. He was joined, last year, by compatriot, Daneil Cyrus, who lives in Hector’s apartment.

The results have been disappointing this season, though. Hanoi T&T have not finished lower than second in the last five years. But, after eight league matches, the Vietnam giants are in eighth place.

“To me, a big problem was we didn’t strengthen the team (much) last year while the other teams around us did,” said Hector. “I think we tried to use our youth players and they didn’t give as much as we thought.

“Also, only about two weeks before the league started, they brought in a rule that only two foreigners could play whereas it was three before. So one (of our foreign players) always has to sit out in every game.

“We have to try win our remainder of games and come strong next season.”

Hector, Cyrus and Argentine attacker Gonzalo Marronkle are the foreign players on Hanoi’s roster. The club plays a 4-1-4-1 system with a midfield sweeper and a lone striker.

Hector signed as an attacking midfielder but, midway through his first season, an injury created a vacancy in the holding midfield role and the Trinidadian was used there as a stop-gap measure. However, Hanoi quickly decided that his vision and passing accuracy made him irreplaceable in that position and he has operated as a Vietnam version of ‘Andrea Pirlo/Michael Carrick’ ever since.

Apart from their league exertions, Hanoi also competed in the 2015 Asian Champions League but did not get past the final Play Off round where they were routed 7-0 by Republic of Korea outfit, FC Seoul. Seoul is stuffed with Korea international players and also has imports from Brazil, Colombia and Spain who all played top flight football in their respective countries.

Hector hopes to play professionally in Europe or the United States’ MLS before he retires but accepts that his advanced age makes this unlikely. Connection remain close to his heart and he expects to return to the “Savonetta Boys” at some point. But he hopes his final club will be one that is even closer to home.

“For my last days, I want to play for my boyhood club which is (Point Fortin) Civic Centre,” said Hector. “I always have that in mind. If I don’t go anywhere else, I think Civic might be the last team I will play with.”

Hector is still anxious to extend his international career, though. He made his international debut at 24, under then head coach Russell Latapy, and within seconds of his introduction as a substitute he crossed for Kerry Baptiste to head home the final goal in a 2-2 World Cup qualifying draw against Mexico at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Port of Spain.

Hector went on to play 15 times under Latapy and made five appearances under his successor, Otto Pfister, before, in late 2011, he joined Song Lam Nghe in Vietnam. In the following four years, Hector represented his country just 13 times.

“What is your international career going to look like when you have to fly for 30 hours and across several time zones every time you have to play for your country?” asked Hart, rhetorically, after Cyrus’ move to Vietnam last year.

Jetlag was not an issue for Hector during the 2014 Caribbean Cup tournament, which occurred during the playmaker’s off-season, and he proved himself to be indispensible to the Warriors. He hopes to wear the red, white and black strip for as long as possible.

“Hopefully I will win the Caribbean Cup next time around and qualify for the Gold Cup again,” said Hector. “I am trying my best to see how much games I can get in with the national team.

“The most important thing for me is qualifying for the (2018) World Cup. That is my number one objective right now.”

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

Heck of a bad time
By Ian Prescott (Express).


A season-ending Achilles tendon injury came at a really bad time for Hughton Hector. Especially considering Trinidad and Tobago's current superb run at the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup when ending Group C qualifying on top with wins over Guatemala (3-1) and Cuba (2-0) and a thrilling 4-4 draw with group runners up Mexico.

The 30-year-old Hector would have been a certain Trinidad and Tobago starter, but misses a second consecutive CONCACAF Gold Cup through injury, having had an inspirational role in Trinidad and Tobago's run to the 2014 Caribbean Cup final, where they lost 4-3 on penalty kicks to host Jamaica, following 120 minutes of football and a goalless draw.

Vietnam-based with Hanoi T&T, the former W Connection man, was one of the two really creative midfielders in the Trinidad and Tobago team, along with also injured Kevin Molino. Hector said missing the Gold Cup is almost tougher than the injury itself.

“It very hard for me because I have never played in a Gold Cup before,” Hector confessed.

“I though this year would have been the time for me, but I guess it's not meant to be.”

Still, there is some good news for Hector, who has been working closely with the Warriors medical staff, and expects to make his first step back on the field in a month or so.

“I just have to keep my head up,” Hector continued.

“It have World Cup qualifiers coming up just now and I think that is a possibility for me coming back and playing for the national team.”

National football coach Stephen Hart has given the impression that Hector will be openly welcomed and in the build-up to the Gold Cup, Hector remained with the national team, although unable to take part in the sessions.

“He is a part of the team in that he is a national player and we welcome him,” Hart said.

“He is eager to kick a ball and I have to keep an eye on him.”



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

We need more quality defenders to add to the roster. The Pro League has not developed enough quality defenders to assist the national coach

That's encouraging news.  He'll be a valuable asset to call on.

What we really need are wing backs tho. 

Carlos Edwards made a successful transition.  Wonder if Cato can do similar?  He's already played that role for San Jose.

Can't think of anyone other than Joevin Jones on the other side of the field.  Joevin is gifted offensively but lacking defensively.


BTW....was watching GC penalty kicks against Panama replay the other night and this caught my eye.

Mikeil Williams played left wing back for us all tournament and seemed to me to be extremely left footed...which is why i thought he was playing left wing back.

But he took his penalty (a damned good one at that) with his right foot.  Can't remember another player taking penalties with his "weaker" foot.

Or was it my imagination that Mikeil Williams is predominantly left footed?

He's accomplished with both feet, but I think he views himself as being more fluent with his right.

You no like Cyrus attacking ability? Williams not bad on the other side as well as Joevin. Plus Joevin youunger brother, Alvin is good going forward as well. I am impressed with our defensive options...for the first time since Marvelous Marvin, Brian Williams and them boys.
