Disgraceful behaviour - the parents should really be stepping in here. They stay in school they'll stay children for the rest of life (I say that as a trainee maths teacher). There's a failure here, whether it's in character, in parenting, in support or in communication. We can't go on like this - the kids are shooting themselves in the foot with a smile on their face.

This is part of the reason why T&T ain't performing like it should on the NT level - how many players were just as good as Jones, Hyland, Peltier at SSFL level? How many realised that the SSFL is a drug that kills their skills while inflating their ego?

Tabaquite crush Vishnu Boys 6-1
T&T Newsday Reports.


Tabaquite Secondary crushed Vishnu Boys 6-1 yesterday in the Central Zone of the Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) Championship Division at Tabaquite.

Tabaquite showing no mercy against their rivals as they embarrassed them at their school grounds.

In other Central Zone match-ups, ASJA Boys drew 2-2 with Presentation Chaguanas. At the same time Miracle Ministry got the better of Couva East 1-0 in a battling effort at the end of regulation time.

In the East Zone, only one game was played with Five Rivers Secondary and Valencia High School playing to a 1-1 draw.

The match between Sangre Grande Secondary and El Dorado East did not kick off due to the condition of the playing field while the clash between Arima Central and Barataria South did not occur as the status of Arima remains unclear.

In the North, Diego Martin Central beat their neighbours Diego Martin North 3-2 while Trinity College and Queen’s Royal College had to settle for a share of the points in a 2-2 draw.

Tranquillity Secondary and Malick Secondary also played toa 1-1 tie.

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

And apparently there was less than 50 people (mostly parents) watching this top of the table clash. So much for the huge crowds of supporters.

Without doubt, the Intercol stage attracts a good number of supporters, but I still feel that the Pro League attracts a larger crowd, cumulatively.

Little "Pappy" upstages Levi Garcia as Shiva Boys edge Presentation

“Pappy” catches the eye as Shiva Boys edge Presentation
By Lasana Liburd (Wired868.com)


The extracurricular activities of 16-year-old Shiva Boys Hindu College Form Five student Levi Garcia has become a national talking point in recent days.

Trinidad and Tobago national head team coach Stephen Hart, national under-20 coach Derek King, Central FC managing director and World Cup 2006 defender Brent Sancho and Shiva Boys head coach, former “Strike Squad” stand-out Dexter Francis and a few local and foreign agents each have an opinion with regards to the talented winger’s next move.

Once more, it was Shiva Boys and not Central that secured his services this weekend; and the result was another three points for the Penal-based school as Francis’ troops edged Presentation College (San Fernando) 1-0 to climb one spot to sixth place in the SSFL Premier Division competition.

Of course, the big news yesterday was at the St Anthony’s College ground where Naparima College tamed the “Westmoorings Tigers” with a stunning 5-1 rout. It was St Anthony’s first loss of the season although captain Mawasi Charles’ team remains two points clear of second placed Naparima.

St Anthony’s has a game in hand against San Juan North too although the Tigers shouldn’t start counting their chickens yet. The San Juan schoolboys again displayed their ability to surprise yesterday with a 2-0 win over St Mary’s College at Serpentine Road in St Clair.

Elsewhere, East Mucurapo Secondary finally registered its first win of the season with a 1-0 triumph over Carapichaima East Secondary while Chaguanas North similarly edged Arima North 1-0. And there were a pair of draws too as Fatima College and St Augustine played to a 1-1 tie while Trinity College East and St Benedict’s finished goalless in Trincity.

Whereas southern travellers Naparima and St Benedict’s might have felt varying degrees of satisfaction from their journeys up the Uriah Butler Highway, it was obvious that either Presentation or Shiva Boys would end the day in a sour mood.

And Shiva Boys had Garcia.

Not for the first time, the speedy attacker seemed to settle the match despite barely showing up. Like an employee who spends most of the day on Facebook and then solves all the office’s problems at 3.45 pm, Garcia seemed to operate on the periphery of the game for much of the afternoon but still set up Shiva captain Marvin Seuradge for the winner in the 30th minute.

Seuradge finished clinically with a low strike that went in off Presentation goalkeeper Ishmael Salaam’s right hand post.

Just as decisively, perhaps, was the dismissal of Presentation defender Ayandike Francis who received a red card from referee Dave Daniel in the 24th minute after he hauled back a goalward-bound Garcia.

Presentation, despite decent build-up play on a treacherous, uneven surface, never looked likely to score thereafter and striker Levon Bass was an isolated figure upfront.

This was the sort of game where supporters are forced to applaud perseverance and pace. What else is possible on a surface as dodgy as Life Sport’s un-tendered contracts?

But then why did 15-year-old Shiva midfielder Tyrel “Pappy” Emmanuel look so comfortable on the most uneven section of the field of all?

Naparima tame Tigers 5-1.
T&T Express Reports.


Naparima College caused a huge upset yesterday when they hammered St Anthony’s College 5-1 for the Tigers’ first defeat in the 2014 campaign at their home ground in Westmoorings.

Jabari Mitchell got a double, while Nicholas Dillon, Matieon Watson and Stephon Smith were the other heroes for the southern side as the more committed Naps completely outplayed the previously unbeaten St Anthony’s. National Under-20 player Matthew Woo Ling got the lone item for the Tigers.

Despite the heavy defeat however, St Anthony’s remain at the top of the 14-team Premier Division of the BG T&T/First Citizens Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) Premier Division standings on 18 points despite the whipping by their southern counterparts.

Naparima leapfrogged from fourth into second spot and are now on 16 points while Trinity East, who battled St Benedict’s to a 0-0 result, dropped to third on 15. Benedict’s slipped from third to fourth on 14 points.

In other Premier Division games, East Mucurapo earned their first victory of the season when they registered a 1-0 win over Carpichaima East at QRC Ground, while Chaguanas North edged Arima North 1-0 in the two games featuring the bottom four teams.

Fatima and St Augustine also grinded out a 1-1 draw at Mucurapo Road, while San Juan North bettered St Mary’s College 2-0.

Meanwhile, Shiva Boys eked out a 1-0 victory over their Southern rivals Presentation College at Lewis Street.

San Juan's Brent Sam and Josiah Trimmingham shine as St Anthony's loses again

Tigers tamed again; San Juan giants subdue St Anthony’s
By Lasana Liburd (Wired868.com)


Anyone who believes you shouldn’t kick someone when they are down should look away now.

A 5-1 hammering from Naparima College on Saturday became two defeats in a row today as St Anthony’s College again surrendered home advantage with a 3-2 loss against San Juan North in Westmoorings.

On Wednesday, the “Westmoorings Tigers” will play their third match in five days—due to today’s rescheduled fixture—and there is no time for self-pity. A loss to St Mary’s College on Serpentine Road would almost certainly see a change in leadership at the top of the SSFL Premier League with second place Naparima College primed to pounce.

San Juan North, Trinity College East and St Benedict’s College, who all trail St Anthony’s by three points, might be smelling blood too. Although St Benedict’s might regret dropping two points this afternoon in another rescheduled fixture after being held goalless by Chaguanas North in La Romaine.

The aura of invincibility has left Westmoorings for now. But it would be a mistake to think the Tigers have imploded.

It is not that St Anthony’s played badly this afternoon. Rather, San Juan was just too disciplined and stubborn and made maximum effect of its main assets in ex-Trinidad and Tobago national under-17 striker Brent Sam and national under-20 defender Josiah Trimmingham.

Sam, a beanpole striker who stands well over six feet, came to international prominence two years ago when he scored seven goals on his competitive debut for the national under-17s in a CONCACAF record 23-0 thrashing of the British Virgin Islands. But he failed to advance to the national under-20 team which used St Ann’s Rangers attacker Kadeem Corbin upfront instead.

It might not impress under-20 coach Derek King that Sam’s performances are at schoolboy level, particularly as the lanky striker made his Pro League debut earlier this year for San Juan Jabloteh. Like Levi Garcia (Shiva Boys HC), Nicholas Dillon (Naparima) and his club and school teammate Trimmingham, Sam is not ready to leave the SSFL behind just yet.

Say what you like about the arena Sam chooses to compete in; but, for more reasons than one, it is impossible to miss his gifts.

Sam towered over everyone else on the field. When he leapt for the ball, St Anthony’s captain Mawasi Charles would have needed a ladder to compete and CAL aircrafts probably had to adjust their flight patterns.

But there was more to the San Juan captain than aerial presence. The ball stuck to his chest like a magnet to a fridge and, on the ground, his balance and nimbleness were at odds with his improbably height.

One sensed St Anthony’s was always going to have its hands full with this green-shirted giant.

But the Tigers had a trump card as well with playmaker Matthew Woo Ling, yet another national under-20 player, in an artistic mood.

And so the game took shape with San Juan forced back on its heels as Woo Ling led his gang of Tigers forward; only for the boys from Bourg Mulattrasse to respond with long punts out from the back that Sam plucked from the sky and turned into counter attacks.

St Anthony’s might have opened the scoring through a Woo Ling free kick that missed the top corner in the 12th minute. Then, 13 minutes later, Trimmingham was inches away with a header off a Kyle Mack corner kick as the game see-sawed between St Anthony’s probing attacks from open play and San Juan’s set piece threats.

In a match that featured two of school football’s most lethal finishers, San Juan’s Sam and St Anthony’s Kwesi “Jep” Allen, defensive concentration was key.

St Anthony’s defender Nicholas Moyou failed to spot Sam’s run in the 33rd minute, though, and the latter player clinically dispatched the ball low and hard into the far corner to open the scoring.

But San Juan could not hold on.

“You do that one more time and you will be on the bench doing it!” San Juan coach Jerry Moe shouted at defender Hakeem Wilson, who was taking too many liberties at the back.

A minute later, though, St Anthony’s conjured its equaliser from that same flank as Adriel Kerr whipped in a cross which Allen deftly deflected past San Juan custodian Sterling Sween from close range.

Moe looked as if he was watching a hoodlum key his car.

The San Juan schoolboys bent; but they did not break.

Woo Ling released Allen, in the 55th minute, and Jep’s stinging, angled left footed effort knocked Sween flat on his back. Somehow, the custodian still managed to turn the shot around his near post for a corner.

And, in the 62nd minute, Allen could not reproduce such alertness in his defensive duties as San Juan went ahead off a set piece that defender Levi O’Brien headed in off the underside of the bar.

Now it was St Anthony’s coach Nigel Grosvenor’s time to moan.

“That was your man, Jep!” shouted Grosvenor, with a pained expression.

By then, San Juan midfielders were following Woo Ling around in the same diligent manner that security guards shadow a Head of State. And, without fever-stricken attacker Darius Olliviera, St Anthony’s lacked the extra quality upfront to dismantle its stubborn visitors.

Trimmingham rubbed salt in the Tigers’ wounds in the 76th minute as he met a weak, headed clearance from an opposing defender with a dipping 40-yard volley that doubled San Juan’s advantage.

Grosvenor gave 14-year-old goalkeeper Oba Augustin a rare start between the uprights today and there were glimpses of potential. But Augustin might need counselling after conceding from that distance.

Trimmingham probably could not repeat that strike if he tried a dozen times.

St Anthony’s pulled a goal back in the 80th minute as substitute Andrew Rullow headed home from a Woo Ling corner. But San Juan killed the game off effectively with time wasting near either corner flag.

It wrapped up a miserable three day spell for the Tigers. And it could get even worse on Wednesday afternoon if St Mary’s has its way.

Now San Juan stop St Anthony’s
T&T Express Reports.


St Anthony’s College suffered another setback on home turf yesterday when San Juan North Secondary inflicted a 3-2 defeat on the leaders in one of two rescheduled matches in the Premier Division of the BG T&T/First Citizens Secondary Schools Football League.

Leaders St Anthony’s who suffered a 5-1 hammering on Saturday at their Westmoorings base against Naparima College, came off second best once more yesterday, as San Juan were never headed once Brent Sam gave them the lead.

The “Tigers” got an equaliser from Kwesi Allen, but further goals by Levi O’Brien and Josiah Trimmingham put the game out of St Anthony’s reach before Andrew Rollo got a consolation item for the home side.

The defeat, St Anthony’s second in a row, means that their lead that was once five points, is now down to two.

The win for San Juan moved them into third place, three points off the leaders, while Naparima College remain second. Naps’ southern rivals St Benedict’s however, could not take full advantage of St Anthony’s slip-up as they were held to a goalless draw by Chaguanas North Secondary in La Romain.

San Juan, Trinity East and Benedict’s are all locked on 15 points with only goal difference separating the trio.

Yesterday’s Results:

St Anthony’s 2 (Kwesi Allen, Andrew Rollo) v San Juan North 3 (Brent Sam, Levi O’Brien. Josiah Trimmingham)

St Benedict’s 0 v Chaguanas North 0

Fyzabad embarrass Mayaro
T&T Newsday Reports.


FYZABAD embarrassed Mayaro 12-0 on Sunday in the Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) Championship Division Girls South Zone.

Fyzabad showed no sympathy towards their hosts, as they produced one of the more one-sided victories of the season.

Point Fortin and Debe Secondary drew 1-1 in the other South Zone meeting, with Kayla Prince scoring for Point Fortin while Shanelle Arjoon found the back of the net for Debe.

In the North Zone, Bishop’s Anstey prevailed 2-0 over St Joseph Convent while Success Laventille beat Tranquility 2-1.

Another North Zone game saw Providence do battle with St Francois but, unfortunately, no goals were scored.

Chevonne John of Bishop Anstey East scored two goals while her teammate Jalene Sobers scored one to give the hosts a 3-0 win over St George’s.

And, in the sister isle, Bishop’s High edged Speyside 1-0 with a goal from Denicia Manning.

Tight at the top in Prem Division
By Garth Wattley (Express).


The chasing pack are now right on the heels of the wounded Tigers from St Anthony’s College, and the current leaders of the Premier Division will be in desperate need of a win this afternoon when action in the BG T&T/First Citizens Secondary Schools Football League continues.

After consecutive defeats—5-1 and 3-2—against Naparima College and San Juan North Secondary respectively, previously unbeaten Sy Anthony’s find themselves with just a two-point lead over second-placed Naps, with San Juan leading a group of three teams who are just a further point behind. Things have got tight with five games to go in the title race, so despite playing their third game in five days, St Anthony’s will have to find a way to lift themselves against St Mary’s College who they visit this afternoon.

A match against their keen North Zone rivals would not have been the type of fixture coach Nigel Grosvenor might have preferred to get his team out of their current rough patch. But St Mary’s themselves have been struggling, having taken just two points from their last four games, which have also included consecutive losses against Shiva Boys Hindu College and San Juan. The need by both sides for full points, if nothing else, should make for a gripping game.

Naparima meanwhile, bolstered by their big win on the weekend, will be looking to take down another North Zone team when Fatima College visit them at Lewis Street. Naps have steadily worked their way up the table on the back of some heavy scoring in their last three games since a 3-0 defeat to old rivals St Benedict’s. Naparima have found the net 13 times since then, so Fatima, down in the bottom half of the table and just one point outside of the relegation zone, should brace themselves.

This afternoon could also prove important to San Juan who host relegation-threatened Presentation College San Fernando. A victory for the Bourg Mulatresse side would keep them within striking distance of the top spot.

For Presentation, however, any point will do, but for that to happen, they will likely have to score, which they haven’t done in their last three fixtures.

These are also crucial times for fourth-from-bottom Chaguanas North, Arima North and cellar-placed East Mucurapo Secondary. Chaguanas did themselves some good by earning a 0-0 draw at St Benedict’s in a rescheduled game on Monday that moved them out of the bottom three. That showing should encourage them on their visit to mid-table St Augustine Secondary.

Third-from-last Arima, beaten by Chaguanas on the weekend, travel to Trinity East, while Mucurapo, who earned their first win of the season on Saturday after beating Carapichaima East Secondary, take on Shiva Boys at Guaracara Park.

In the other match in the division, Carapichaima host St Benedict’s.

In Tobago, leaders Speyside Secondary will seek to press for a spot in the national Big Four playoffs when they host Bishop’s High School whose last match against Scarborough Secondary was aborted following a brawl between the teams.

Meanwhile, Signal Hill Secondary, two points behind, take on Scarborough at Signal Hill. In the other match, Goodwood play Pentecostal Light and Light. All matches begin at 3.45 p.m.

Three teams get Adidas kit.
T&T Express Reports.


Players on the Queen’s Royal College, Trinity College and St Anthony’s College football teams will be stepping out on the field in style this season, thanks to sponsorship of brand new Adidas uniforms by CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank.

The sponsorship represents CIBC FirstCaribbean’s partnership with Matchkit, a new company focused on providing top-quality equipment and development programmes.

As the authorised wholesale dealer of the international sports apparel brand Adidas, Matchkit will supply the uniforms for the three teams through sponsorship from CIBC FirstCaribbean.

Speaking at the media launch to announce the collaboration at the VIP Room of the Hasely Crawford Stadium earlier this week, CIBC FirstCaribbean managing director, Duane Hinkson said the bank was pleased to partner with Matchkit and the three schools.

“Sport is a key area to drive youth forward. It teaches them the value of being on a team working toward common goals and genuinely supporting your team members to collectively achieve. At CIBC FirstCaribbean, we are committed to programmes that centre on youth development such as this one so that they continue to learn, excel and lead by example,” Hinkson said.

Brent Sancho, Matchkit’s managing director, said the company was launched in an effort to provide players with the best and commended CIBC FirstCaribbean for its contribution towards this vision. “CIBC FirstCaribbean shares our philosophy to support our young teams, especially secondary schools, and they must be commended for sponsoring these top schools,” Sancho said. “Matchkit is fully committed to local sports and we, with Adidas, are ready for the challenge to effect positive change.”

Also present at the launch was Trinity College manager Tevon Lerose, who spoke on behalf of the three schools. He said: “It is good to see the corporate world reaching out to schools and we thank CIBC FirstCaribbean for their sponsorship.”

The Matchkit company intends to work with more schools in the future and Hinkson added that the bank looks forward to a long-term relationship and expanding its reach within the local youth sport circuit alongside the sports company.

Correct me if I am wrong but in Jamaica doesn't Flow sponsor the uniforms for all teams. Not sure if it is the senior league or school boy football. That is where we should be heading. I hope that it does not stop at just some "high profile" teams.

Three teams get Adidas kit.
T&T Express Reports.


Players on the Queen’s Royal College, Trinity College and St Anthony’s College football teams will be stepping out on the field in style this season, thanks to sponsorship of brand new Adidas uniforms by CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank.

The sponsorship represents CIBC FirstCaribbean’s partnership with Matchkit, a new company focused on providing top-quality equipment and development programmes.

As the authorised wholesale dealer of the international sports apparel brand Adidas, Matchkit will supply the uniforms for the three teams through sponsorship from CIBC FirstCaribbean.

Speaking at the media launch to announce the collaboration at the VIP Room of the Hasely Crawford Stadium earlier this week, CIBC FirstCaribbean managing director, Duane Hinkson said the bank was pleased to partner with Matchkit and the three schools.

“Sport is a key area to drive youth forward. It teaches them the value of being on a team working toward common goals and genuinely supporting your team members to collectively achieve. At CIBC FirstCaribbean, we are committed to programmes that centre on youth development such as this one so that they continue to learn, excel and lead by example,” Hinkson said.

Brent Sancho, Matchkit’s managing director, said the company was launched in an effort to provide players with the best and commended CIBC FirstCaribbean for its contribution towards this vision. “CIBC FirstCaribbean shares our philosophy to support our young teams, especially secondary schools, and they must be commended for sponsoring these top schools,” Sancho said. “Matchkit is fully committed to local sports and we, with Adidas, are ready for the challenge to effect positive change.”

Also present at the launch was Trinity College manager Tevon Lerose, who spoke on behalf of the three schools. He said: “It is good to see the corporate world reaching out to schools and we thank CIBC FirstCaribbean for their sponsorship.”

The Matchkit company intends to work with more schools in the future and Hinkson added that the bank looks forward to a long-term relationship and expanding its reach within the local youth sport circuit alongside the sports company.

So Sancho help get this Adidas kit deal for 3 teams in North but yet he club based in Central. Shouldn't he at least help teams in his community?

Ent Central does use Chaguanas Seconday School field, why de f00ck he didn't add them in de deal too?

At least he coulda split up de support.

Numerous companies across the country were approached by MatchKit to sponsor Secondary Schools' uniforms for the season. CIBC First Caribbean International Bank were the only sponsor to accept the deal  and they selected the schools that they would have preferred to sponsor.

Naps on top as Tigers falter in SSFL Premier Division
T&T Express Reports.


Naparima College leapfrogged St Anthony’s College yesterday to replace the Westmoorings side atop the BG T&T Secondary Schools Football League Premier Division after nine rounds of football.

“Naps”, who beat Fatima College 2-0 at Lewis Street, owe St Mary’s College a thank you note, though, as the “Saints” took full advantage of home advantage and a sloppy “Tigers” team to earn full points at Serpentine Road, St Clair.

The Tigers now sit third on goal difference after San Juan North, another team prowling behind the previous leaders, trounced Presentation College San Fernando 4-1 to slip into second on goal difference.

Trinity College also joined the Tigers on 18 points with a 2-1 win away to Arima North Secondary, while St Augustine’s 1-1 home draw against Chaguanas Secondary saw them edge close to a tight bunch atop the standings, but not close enough to enter the top three.

The Tigers would have needed the win as much as mid-table side St Mary’s particularly as they aimed to arrest the slide that saw them follow a perfect six wins with three straight defeats after yesterday.

But it was their own ineffectiveness in front of goal that would haunt them more than their disjointed midfield, or sometimes shaky defence. The Tigers heaped the pressure on the Saints in the second half after conceding just before the break, but chance after change went a-begging, and the former returned to Diego Martin with no straight points and their confidence battered.

An even first half finished a good one for the home team after forward Ethan Shim took advantage of some lacklustre marking in the 43rd. Hardly bothered as he skirted the touchline, Shim cut in towards the penalty area and, uncontested as he continued along the angle, found enough space to beat St Anthony’s goalkeeper Oba Augustine.

St Mary’s were more organised and kept to their game plan in the second half, looking to possess the ball and build going forward. Fortunately for them, although they were without the ball for long period, the frustrated Tigers broke down into individual runs and ineffectual flank play that posed little threat.

The final 15 minutes was full of drama, with a couple of yellow cards issued, but more importantly, with St Anthony’s surging forward looking for the vital equaliser. One little fan, perhaps too young to wear the school’s uniform, pleaded with their attacking players: “please, please score”.

Those please went unheard. National Under-20 midfield Matthew Woo Ling was not effective in midfield or set plays, although he put in a beauty of a corner that Jules Lee could only bundle wide. It typified their match that Woo Ling put wide the final attack of the match, a corner kick.

There were six Tigers chances in the last ten minutes plus stoppage time, at least three within 12 metres. The strikers either failed to shoot or never bothered the target. St Mary’s had a run late on from captain Marcus Mottley, whose rising shot was only just over.

In the end it may be a confidence problem after back-to-back losses, but it is something veteran coach Nigel Grosvenor needs to fix quite quickly if St Anthony’s are to put their season back on track and challenge for the League title.

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

Naps storm to SSFL lead as ‘Tigers’ lose third straight.
By Andrew Gioannetti (Guardian).


Naparima College made a remarkable leap to the top of the BGTT First Citizens Secondary Schools’ Football League (SSFL) Standings, yesterday, after securing a 2-0 win over Fatima College, while previous leader St Anthony’s College lost for the third consecutive time.

At Lewis St, San Fernando, “Naps” stand-outs Jabari Mitchell and Nicholas Dillon scored on either side of the half, to see their school to the top of the 14-team standings for the first time this season, while up North, St Mary’s College added to the “Tigers’” demise, as the “Saints” secured a 1-0 win at Serpentine Road. Incredibly, St Anthonys’ loss was its third in six days. That, following a run of six wins. Ethan Shim scored the lone goal for St Mary’s roughly five minutes from the end of the first half.

For the new league leaders, Mitchell, one of the most influential players for the team scored his fourth goal in three matches to give Naparima the lead in the 27th minute. The same period of time then elapsed in the second half, before Naps found breathing room with a second goal. Dillon, who came on as a substitute in the 58th minute, scored the second goal of the match and his fourth of the season in the 72nd minute. His goal was assisted by none other than Mitchell.

The change in fortunes, particularly between St Anthony’s and Naparima, has ensured a keen battle to the finish with only four matches remaining in the regular league season.

In other results, Shiva Boys Hindu College continued its incline of form with a 3-1 win over East Mucurapo with Quinn Rodney again on target with a double. Another national player, winger Levi Garcia also scored for the South Zone team.

Presentation College, the reigning Big-Five champion continued its struggles with a 4-1 loss to San juan North. The “Pres Lions” remained second from bottom, while San Juan North kept up the pressure on the league leaders. “Bourg” currently occupies second place, joint with St Anthony’s, Trinity East (2-1 winner over Arima North) and St Benedict’s (2-0 winner over Carapichaima East).

Yesterday’s Results:

Premier Division

St Mary’s College 1 (Ethan Shim 40th) v St Anthony’s 0

Naparima College 2 (Jabari Mitchell 27th, Nicholas Dillon 72nd) v Fatima College 0

St Benedict’s 2 (Anthony Herbert, Judah St Louis) v Carapichaima East 0

San Juan North 4 (Josiah Trimmingham, Brent Sam 3) v Presentation San F’do 1

St Augustine 1 (Brandon Samuel) v Chaguanas North 1 (Mallik Campbell)

Shiva Boys 3 (Quinn Rodney 15th, 61st, Levi Garcia 70th) v East Mucurapo 1 (Tekay Hoyce 3rd)

Trinity College 2 v Arima North 1

Signal Hill dim ‘Light and Life’
Top teams win in Premier Div, but in Tobago...
By Kern De Freitas (Express).


Signal Hill Secondary got their expected victory over Pentecostal Light and Life yesterday at Signal Hill’s school compound but were made to labour more than they would hope for three points in the Tobago Zone of the BG T&T/First Citizens Secondary Schools Football League.

In the Premier Division in Trinidad, leaders Naparima College banged in eight goals without reply-Jabari Mitchell getting a hat-trick—as they beat Chaguanas North Secondary, while San Juan North Secondary and former leaders St Anthony’s College enjoyed 2-0 and 6-1 wins respectively.

At Signal Hill, a 1-0 result would have been good for the ten-time national champs but not for former national senior coach Bertille St Clair, who assumed his overseeing role at Signal Hill from a distance, as is his custom.

It was the same type of football regular onlookers would expect from Tobago teams in sloppy conditions brought on by the weekend’s tropical wave: direct, rugged, played in condensed space by speedy players.

But the play was not always cohesive, and sometimes the beauty in it was lost by a bunched midfield or ugly, desperate defending.

Luckily, it wasn’t dull despite the persistent drizzle, as Light and Life kept trying to press  forward and should have had the late equaliser through substitute Rodell Douglas, while Signal Hill should have trotted home by a greater margin but for lukewarm finishing.

Light and Life chased the game for the entire first half. The first decent touch they had was a clearance that went for a corner before the referee’s watch had struck a minute. The second was goalkeeper Jo-Randi Reid picking the ball out of his own net, due largely to his own lack of awareness and late reaction, as winger Axcel George fired his corner, perhaps fortuitously, along the crossbar,  and it dipped late.

Reid seemed to spot the danger late and his flailing attempt at a punch hit air. He turned to see the ball nestling into his net as Signal Hill celebrated.

To their credit, Light and Life were not intimidated but knew they were outmatched. Still, within the first 15 minutes the visitors had two chances, Shakeem Irine with a fierce drive from 30 metres that was narrowly wide, and a one on one where Brian Williams was second best to Ajerie Vermin in Signal Hill goal.

On the half hour Jabari Francis also tried his luck from 25 metres, while Kareem Phillips also forced Fermin to tip over with a beauty of a free kick from similar range.

Truth be told, though, Signal Hill should have had a bigger lead by the break. Antonio Pantin was a constant thorn with his speed and crosses from the right, and also had his shot cleared off the line from Jokiah Leacock after a horrible error from Reid.

The hosts kept most of the possession and pressure, and also had two close range chances from go a-begging.

Keiroy Murray, Ackel Carrington and Nkosi Chance all made a meal of close range shots on the break, two of which were saved by Reid. At the other end, Douglas hit the post off a corner and Francis punted wide in the final minutes, only to scare a Signal Hill, but not enough.

Yesterday’s SSFL Results:

Premier Division:

St Anthony’s 6 (Andrew Rullow, Matthew Woo Ling 2, Kwesi Allen 2, Raheem Borde) v Fatima 1

San Juan 2 v East Mucurapo 0

Naparima 8 (Nicholas Dillon 3, Jabari Mitchell, Martieon Watson, Iasaih Hudson, Jeremiah Kezar, Aalon Minors) v Chaguanas North 0

Shiva Boys 2 (Jerry Ramdeo, Levi Garcia [P]) v St Benedict’s 1 (Meriba Des Cartes)

Presentation San Fernando 1 (Kyle Moodie) v St Mary’s  0

St Augustine 1 v Trinity East 1

Carapichaima East 2 v Arima North 1

Tobago Zone:

Signal Hill 1 v Penecostal L&L 0

Roxborough 0 v Speyside  15

T&T Guardian Reports.


Nicholas Dillon scored a hat-trick as Naparima College crushed Chaguanas North 8-0 to maintain its top position in the premier division of the BGTT/First Citizens Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL), at Chaguanas, yesterday.

Dillon was on target in the 20th, 48th and 64th minute as “Naps” kept its one point advantage at the top of the standings after ten rounds of action. Chaguanas was still in with a chance at halftime, as Naparima led 2-0 behind Dillon’s first goal and Jabari Mitchell’s item in the 30th minute.

However, Chaguanas fell apart in the second half conceding six goals. Jeremiah Kazar and Isaiah Hudson were also among the scorers. It was raining goals in Westmoorings, as home team St Anthony’s thumped north rivals Fatima 6-1.

Tabaquite crush Vishnu Boys 6-1
T&T Newsday Reports.


Tabaquite Secondary crushed Vishnu Boys 6-1 yesterday in the Central Zone of the Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) Championship Division at Tabaquite.

Tabaquite showing no mercy against their rivals as they embarrassed them at their school grounds.

In other Central Zone match-ups, ASJA Boys drew 2-2 with Presentation Chaguanas. At the same time Miracle Ministry got the better of Couva East 1-0 in a battling effort at the end of regulation time.

In the East Zone, only one game was played with Five Rivers Secondary and Valencia High School playing to a 1-1 draw.

The match between Sangre Grande Secondary and El Dorado East did not kick off due to the condition of the playing field while the clash between Arima Central and Barataria South did not occur as the status of Arima remains unclear.

In the North, Diego Martin Central beat their neighbours Diego Martin North 3-2 while Trinity College and Queen’s Royal College had to settle for a share of the points in a 2-2 draw.

Tranquillity Secondary and Malick Secondary also played toa 1-1 tie.

Disgraceful behaviour - the parents should really be stepping in here. They stay in school they'll stay children for the rest of life (I say that as a trainee maths teacher). There's a failure here, whether it's in character, in parenting, in support or in communication. We can't go on like this - the kids are shooting themselves in the foot with a smile on their face.

This is part of the reason why T&T ain't performing like it should on the NT level - how many players were just as good as Jones, Hyland, Peltier at SSFL level? How many realised that the SSFL is a drug that kills their skills while inflating their ego?


Sometimes parents may not be to blame. I spoke with a parent of 1 of the U20 footballers asking why he allowed his son to go back to the SSFL level.....citing all the arguments on this forum including a few not addressed here. He told me he was well aware of all these arguments but was in an almost helpless position.

He transferred his son to the school for academic reasons but the school insisted that should he attend he must play for the school. This was all before making the U20 NT. He then asked me how is he supposed to tell the school his son is not playing for them because he is crurently on the U20 NT when 1 of the reasons the school accepted him a few years ago was to play for them.

Let me ask a question that I've not seen posed on the forum:

Why are NT coaches (or former NT coaches) coaching SSFL, when we have an issue with young talent playing SSFL?

If there isn't (paying) work for them elsewhere, what are they supposed to do, turn down a steady paycheck doing what they qualified to and love doing?  The comparison to "young talent playing SSFL" is a non-starter.

Then that should be a separate question, not a comparative one invoking the situation of the talented young players, who almost uniformly have better options.  The inevitable answer to that separate question would be that they lack better alternatives, and so criticism of the choice would be unreasonable.

It's not lost on me why they do, or that they do. My focus is that they coach in the environment critiqued.

Then that should be a separate question, not a comparative one invoking the situation of the talented young players, who almost uniformly have better options.  The inevitable answer to that separate question would be that they lack better alternatives, and so criticism of the choice would be unreasonable.

I would caution against pre-supposing answers.
