Energy FC sign Trinidad and Tobago International Alvin Jones
By Tyler Vaughn (energyfc.com)


Energy FC have signed defender Alvin Jones, pending league and federation approval, Head Coach Steve Cooke announced today. The 24-year-old joins OKC from Trinidad and Tobago Pro League club W Connection FC, where he had played since 2012, winning two league titles and featuring in the Concacaf Champions League on six occasions.

Jones has also made 16 appearances for the Trinidad and Tobago national team at the senior level, scoring one goal. His lone goal is an infamous one in United States’ Soccer history, as it came in the match on October 10, 2017 that eliminated the US men’s national team from 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification.

In addition to caps at the senior level, Jones has made appearances with the Trinidad and Tobago U20 and U23 national teams.

“With Alvin Jones, you’re bringing in a player with really good experience”, said Cooke. “He has good experience in international competition, played in Concacaf Champions League games, played for Trinidad and Tobago a number of times and has played against some of the best in the game. Alvin is a really solid human and is a hardworking, professional young man. He’s also very versatile. He has played right back, can play in the middle of midfield and can play right midfield. That versatility means wherever we play him, he’s going to be a big addition to the group. I’m delighted to be able to add another player of that pedigree to our squad.”

Energy FC are on the road this weekend, as they travel to take on Rio Grande Valley FC Toros, Saturday, April 13 at 7:30 p.m. CDT at H-E-B Park.

Real Salt Lake signs defender Alvin Jones
RSL Communications


Real Salt Lake has signed DF Alvin Jones ahead of the 2020 season.  The Trinidad and Tobago right back brings international experience and one year in the USL Championship to bolster the depth on RSL’s back line.

“We’re happy to add a player of Alvin’s caliber to help make the team better.  He’s good on the ball and has good attributes in the attacking third.  He’s athletic.  He’s strong,” RSL Head Coach Freddy Juarez said.  He’s a national team player and we hope that experience can make us a better team overall.”

Jones, 25, spent the 2019 season with OKC Energy FC in the USL Championship, where he had one goal and two assists in 21 matches after signing in mid-April.  Previously, he had played with W Connection in Trinidad, winning two league titles in six seasons and making six appearances in CONCACAF Champions League.

In addition, he has 19 caps for the Trinidad and Tobago National Team, scoring one goal against the U.S. National Team against the U.S. National Team on October 10, 2017 in 2018 World Cup Qualifiers.

Real Salt Lake finished the 2019 season third in the Western Conference at 16-13-5 (53 points) and advanced to the Western Conference Semifinals for the second consecutive season.

Welcome news in terms of the player moving to the MLS. However, tempered by the reality that Freddy is new at this gig and if he is replaced we could be back to a familiar script if another manager is brought in.

Congrats to Alvin Jones!

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.

RSL cuts Alvin Jones ahead of 2021 MLS season
T&T Guardian Reports.


T&T senior men’s football team utility player, Alvin Jones, 26, is on the lookout for a new club.

This after Jones, the younger sibling of Seattle Sounders midfielder Joevin Jones was one of several players released by US Major League Soccer’s Real Salt Lake FC on Monday.

The club website stated on Monday that Real Salt Lake in announcing several roster updates ahead of the 2021 season exercised the contract options on eight players from its 2020 roster.

With 14 other returning players under contract and three additional players already signed ahead of the 2021 season, the announcement gives RSL 25 players on its current roster.

The website stated that Real Salt Lake exercised the options of goalkeeper David Ochoa; defenders Justen Glad and Erik Holt; midfielders Everton Luiz and Justin Portillo; and forwards Maikel Chang, Douglas Martinez and Tate Schmitt.

Also, RSL announced that it has declined the contract options of defender Alvin Jones; midfielder Luis Arriaga; and forwards Giuseppe Rossi and Julian Vazquez while goalkeeper Andrew Putna and midfielders Kyle Beckerman and Luke Mulholland are out of a contract.

However, there is still hope that the younger Jones who only featured in one match all season for RSL can return to the club as it was stated that conversations about returning to the roster in 2021 are ongoing with several players.

The 2020 MLS Expansion Draft is scheduled for Tuesday, December 15 with the End-of-Year Waivers scheduled for Wednesday, December 16 at 11 am.

Free Agency is also beginning at that time. Additionally, the MLS Re-Entry Process begins with Stage 1 on Thursday, December 17, while Stage 2 of the Re-Entry Process is set to take place on Tuesday, December 22.

A full MLS list of players eligible for Free Agency, End-of-Year Waivers and the Re-Entry Process will be announced by the League at a later date.

The Carenage-born Jones, spent the 2019 season with OKC Energy FC in the United Soccer League Championship, making 21 appearances after moving from T&T's W Connection where he won two titles in six seasons and featured in the Concacaf Champions League.

He is best-known among MLS fans for scoring the game-winning goal for T&T to sink the USA men's national team 2018 Russia World Cup hopes.

While Jones heads out the RSL door, another T&T player will be hoping to make an impact next season at the club in 22-year-old defender Noah Powder.

Powder completed the last season in the United Soccer League Championship Division with Real Monarch, having played a key role in their title-winning 2019 campaign.

Before joining the Monarchs, Powder built a successful career in the USL Championship at New York Red Bulls II and in 2016, helped lift the side to the 2016 USL Championship title win as well.

In 2018, Powder contributed to making Orange County SC the Western Conference leaders, taking the California side to the Western Conference Final.

Internationally, Powder brings with him international experience having played for the T&T Under-17s and Under-20s, making a total of 13 appearances and notching four goals between the two.

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

Forward Madison signs Trinidad and Tobago defender Alvin Jones

Forward Madison signs Trinidad and Tobago defender Alvin Jones
forwardmadisonfc.com


Forward Madison FC have signed 27-year-old defender Alvin Jones, pending league and federation approval. Jones is famous for his goal that eliminated the US Men’s National Team from 2018 World Cup contention in the qualifying rounds.

Jones is originally from Trinidad and Tobago, where he debuted in 2014 playing for his national team. The defender has made 32 career appearances for Trinidad and Tobago, and he contributed an impactful goal over that time.

“Alvin will have a positive impact on the group through his international and domestic experience,” Forward Madison Assistant Coach Neil Hlavaty said. “We’re very excited to welcome Alvin to Madison, his speed and technicality will work well in USL League One.”

As for his club career, Jones first signed with W Connection FC in the TT Pro League. He played with the team from 2012-2018, made 13 appearances and scored a goal with the team.

For the 2019 season, Jones came to the US where he signed with the Oklahoma City Energy FC. The 6-foot right back had a breakout season as he appeared in 22 games with OKC FC and managed to contribute two assists and a goal.

After leaving OKC FC, Jones signed with the Real Monarchs and played in one game before joining Real Salt Lake City in 2020.

Jones has proven that his presence on the defensive side of the ball can be effective in improving a club’s all-around defensive ability. The defender has also made some impressive plays on the offensive side in the limited opportunities he’s been granted. Now a Flamingo, Jones is primed for a big 2022 with the club.
