Keston Julien joins AS Trencin
« on: February 18, 2017, 01:38:18 AM »
Looks like Julien has joined Peltier's old team in Slovakia. Did not see an announcement but he is listed on their official site. I guess this is why he will miss the U20s. All the best.

Two things come to mind.

1. De Warrior Boss will be eagerly tracking his bank deposits.

2. The U20s played through Julien extensively. How have they adjusted in his absence? There might be a silver lining here.

Teenaged Warriors defender and ex-Pres star, Julien, completes pro move to Slovakia.
By Wired868.com.


Eighteen year old Trinidad and Tobago national youth team left back Keston Julien will represent mid-table Slovakia outfit, AS Trenčín, this season after he completed his move to Europe today.

Julien transferred to Trenčín from Pro League outfit, San Juan Jabloteh. His move was negotiated by Netherlands agent Humphry Nijman and his local representative Dion Sosa.

Julien, a former Presentation College (San Fernando) student, was a member of the current Trinidad and Tobago National Under-20 Team but skipped the ongoing CONCACAF competition to attend pre-season with the Slovakian club. In return, Trenčín rewarded the teenager with a 14-month deal.

Julien follows in the footsteps of former Jabloteh players Robert Primus and Sheldon Bateau, former Marabella Family Crisis Centre winger Levi Garcia and the late Akeem Adams—a former Point Fortin Civic left back—who all secured deals in Europe after being scouted by Nijman and Sosa.

The composed left back made his senior international debut at just 16 years old when he debuted for W Connection in a 4-0 CONCACAF Champions League defeat away to Mexican champions Santos Laguna on 4 August 2015.

But his time with the “Savonetta Boys” was short-lived, as he returned to the Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) competition with Presentation before leaving for Super League outfit, Marabella, and then Jabloteh.

He spent barely six months at Jabloteh before Trenčín decided he was ready for Europe.

Julien will wear the number three shirt for the cosmopolitan Slovakian club, which has three Nigerians, two Brazilians and an Argentine on their roster.

Garcia, who was also eligible to represent the Trinidad and Tobago National Under-20 Team but was not released by his employers, scored AZ Alkmaar’s lone goal today as they were routed 7-1 by France powerhouse team, Lyons, in UEFA Europa league action.

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

Keston's absence from the U-20s is interesting. I know of another player who wanted to go on trial but was asked to delay going because the team was in pre-tournament prep.

Congrats to the baller on signing. The younger they are sent, the better.

You have to wonder if these two guys could have made a difference in our 1-1 tie with Bermuda and our 1-0 lost to CR. Maybe ?? I think they could have. But we will never know. Too bad.

Yeah, we fielded a B+ team dey. We had more skillful players, but for one reason or another were unable to get them.

But T&T weren't the only ones to field such a squad. . .

So we are not seeing the best of the U20s dis rounds. . .it's a substandard Tourney

Julien to line up in Europa Qualifier for Trencin on Thursday.
TTFA Media.


Former national under 20 player Keston Julien is likely to start for Slovak club AS Trencin in the UEFA Europa League Second Round qualifying match against Bnei Yehuda Tel-Aviv of Israel on Thursday.

Julien, 18, signed with Trencin in January of this year, penning a three and a half year deal after previously being attached to W Connection and San Juan Jabloteh. He is currently the youngest T&T player to possess a pro contract in Europe with 19-year-old Levi Garcia next on the list. So far he’s made five appearances for Trencin, making his debut in February against Slovan Bratislava. But injury sidelined him until recently and now he’s back in the Trencin gameday roster.

“It was pretty challenging at first with the weather, It was  minus 18 when I got here (Slovakia) but I adapted after a couple weeks. I started playing six or seven games right away and then I dropped in form a bit so I was on the bench.  I got back into the first team just before the end of the season,” Julien told TTFA Media on Monday.

Julien missed the club’s past two Europa matches which included a 3-0 win over Torpedo Kutaisi in the first round.

“I didn’t play the last couple Europa games because of injury but I am fit again and in full training with the first team. I’m in the starting team for Thursday so I am looking forward to it because it’s a huge opportunity for us,” the left-back added.

Julien described the training as something that was totally new to him. His current club is the former employers of T&T’s Lester Peltier.

“Everyday it’s hard and intense work out here. We train five days for the week with one day rest plus game day. In those five days, two days will be double session with gym work and so. It’s a lot tougher than anything I had ever experienced in Trinidad, “Julien said .

“You have to be ready everyday because what you do on the field is what determines how the game goes and whether you are selected or not. This experience is shaping me, I believe, into a better player.

“My ambition is to get into the national senior team because that is every player’s dream especially when you are playing at the European level where all the players are striving to make their national team,” Julien added.



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