Whitmore Gets Order of Distinction
By Livingston Scott, Jamaica Gleaner.




National senior men's football team head coach, Theodore 'Tappa' Whitmore, who is among those to be bestowed with the Order of Distinction at the National Honours and Awards Ceremony in October, said it is an "extreme privilege" to be in the company of other esteemed Jamaicans and he expects accolades more to come.

Whitmore, who has more than 120 caps and 24 international goals for Jamaica, was the main creative force in midfield when the Reggae Boyz qualified for the World Cup in 1998. He was also the hero in the team's only win at the tournament, when he scored two brilliant goals to lead Jamaica to a 2-1 win over Japan in their third and final group game of the finals.

More recently, the 45-year-old, who has been in charge of the national senior team on four separate occasions, shocked the football world when he guided a squad of locally bred Jamaican players to their second straight Gold Cup final, where they lost 2-1 to host nation the United States.

'EXTREME PRIVILEGE'
 
"It's an extreme privilege to be among the list of persons to be honoured and with ... the Order of Distinction.

"I give all praises to God Almighty. Without Him, it would not have been possible. Therefore, it is my fervent desire to continue to serve my country and community by contributing in all the ways I can to uplift those who I come in contact with. This is another great achievement, and there are a lot more to come," he commented.

Of his two outstanding football achievements, Whitmore says he has no preference. "They are two great achievements and two different scenarios - one when I was playing and the other while coaching, but they are two of my greatest moments," he said.

T&T snare Jamaica friendly on 24 August in PoS; Warriors get final WCQ warm-up
Wired868


Trinidad and Tobago will host 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup runners-up Jamaica on 24 August from 8pm at the Hasely Crawford Stadium as the Caribbean’s traditional heavyweights go head-to-head in a friendly contest.

Tickets cost $100 (covered stands) and $50 (uncovered) and will be available at all NLCB Lotto locations nationwide from Wednesday 9 August.

“This is soca versus reggae at its best,” John-Williams told the TTFA Media. “The Jamaicans are on a high at the moment and we know they always come hard when they have to face Trinidad and Tobago. We think that it is an excellent opportunity for our team to get just the kind of workout they will need before Honduras.

“It’s ‘Tallest’ versus ‘Tappa’ for Caribbean bragging rights. We want a packed house on August 24th to witness this Caribbean derby in Port of Spain.”

Ironically, the Soca Warriors’ next competitive international match against Honduras will be played at the Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva on 1 September rather than in Port-of-Spain—in part, because the TTFA is uncertain whether the current National Senior Team has the pulling power to fill the Hasely Crawford Stadium at present.

Trinidad and Tobago lost 1-3 away to Ecuador late last month and head coach Dennis Lawrence is happy to have another dress rehearsal before they face Honduras in a crucial 2018 World Cup qualifier.

“This game comes at an ideal time for us in preparation for Honduras,” said Lawrence. “Jamaica are in a good moment after coming off a very positive showing at the Gold Cup. They will come here looking to maintain that form, which means they will give us the kind of test we are looking for at this stage of the preparations—a week before we face Honduras.

“We will start training on August 14th for the matches coming up and this will obviously be a critical period for us, which we are all anticipating a great deal.”

At present, Jamaica are ranked 76th in the world by FIFA which is two places above Trinidad and Tobago, who are now 78th.

In their last clash with Trinidad and Tobago on home soil, the “Reggae Boyz” emerged victorious in the 2014 Caribbean Cup final but needed penalties to do so. In the last clash between them in Port-of-Spain, the Warriors won 2-0  in a friendly on 19 November, 2013.

Both teams will be under-strength since the game falls outside the FIFA match window and both nations will need special dispensations from clubs to get their foreign-based players to join the squad.

Caribbean Derby in Port of Spain on August 24th.
TTFA Media.


T&T to host Jamaica in Caribbean Clasico at Hasely Crawford Stadium

Trinidad and Tobago’s Senior Men’s Team will face off with Jamaica in a battle for Caribbean supremacy when the two nations clash in an International Friendly at the Hasely Crawford Stadium on August 24th at 8pm.

The game was confirmed by the TT Football Association (TTFA) today and will serve as a final build up for head coach Dennis Lawrence and the Warriors ahead of there all-important September 1st World Cup qualifier at home to Honduras.

Jamaica are coming off their Concacaf Gold Cup runners up performance after losing narrowly to the United States in the recent final and head coach Theodore Whitmore will be hoping to avenge his team’s previous 2-0 defeat to T&T when both teams met in a friendly in Port of Spain on November 19th, 2013.

For T&T, the game is all about preparations for Honduras and Panama in early September.

“This game comes at an ideal time for us in preparation for Honduras,” Lawrence told TTFA Media on Monday. “Jamaica are in a good moment after coming off a very positive showing at the Gold Cup and they will come here looking to maintain that form which means they will give us the kind of test we are looking for at that stage of the preparations, a week before we face Honduras.

“We will start training on August 14th for the matches coming up and this will obviously be a critical period for us which we are all anticipating a great deal,” Lawrence added.

TTFA President David John-Williams is also foreseeing a gripping contest on the night.

“This is Soca versus Reggae at its best. The Jamaicans are on a high at the moment and we know they always come hard when they have to face Trinidad and Tobago. We think that it is an excellent opportunity for our team to get just the kind of workout they will need before Honduras. It’s Tallest versus Tappa for Caribbean bragging rights. We want a packed house on August 24th to witness this Caribbean derby in Port of Spain,” John-Williams said.

John-Williams also relayed that both the T&T and Jamaica governing bodies are discussing the possibility of turning the encounter into an annual affair  to mark their respective Independence with Jamaica celebrating its Independence on August 6th and T&T to do so on August 31st  and additionally both countries also playing for the Captain Horace Burrell Challenge Cup in memory of the deceased for Jamaica Football President.

Tickets for the T&T versus Jamaica friendly will cost $100 (covered stands) and $50 (uncovered) and will be available at all NLCB Lotto Locations nationwide from this Wednesday,

I don't see that happening. Don't want to go through another Bostock type situation. Let's not waste time on hoping for him to get a concussion and then suddenly announced he wants to play for the Warriors. I am sure we have had enough of this.

Sancho is eligible for TnT but I can not see him coming.

Would love to have Shaq Moore but TTFA have a history of pissing off that family so I doubt he would come.

Ranjitsingh, Julien amd Powder must get a call to camp at a minimum if they seriois.

Players will come once we get our house in order. In the meantime, don't expect much interest from foreign born "trinis". We need to get our house properly in order before we look to attract talent that honestly have too much to lose by coming here to play.

Isn't this warm up game being played on August 24?

It more important for the girls U17's to have the field to themselves rather than the mens team who supposed to be prepping for a must win WCQer?

I guess the girls fixtures were fixed a while ago and the JA friendly only now got arranged.

Not sure if other games will be playing on the 24th there, like other groups, I'll find out.

Update.

Against CFU/CONCACAF regulations, they not allowed them to use the field during the time of the girls tournament which features double headers on each dates as stated above and they could not get another date for the JA friendly.

The girls tournament were planned a while ago.

Whitmore Offered Contract Extension Ahead Of T&T Friendly

Whitmore Offered Contract Extension Ahead Of T&T Friendly
By Marc Stamp (Jamaica Gleaner)


The Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) has offered Theodore Whitmore a new contract as coach of the national senior men's team, after his contract ended at the conclusion of the Gold Cup last month.

Whitmore was given an interim role by the late former JFF president Captain Horace Burrell, last year.

Now, interim JFF president Bruce Gaynor has decided to continue with the former national senior team captain and star midfielder. Whitmore guided Jamaica to a second-place finish in the CONCACAF Gold Cup tournament last month, where hosts United States edged Jamaica 2-1 in the final.

"We (the JFF) have offered him (Whitmore) a new contract which is not yet finalised. We will sit with Whitmore for discussions. He has agreed to coach the team in a friendly against Trinidad and Tobago in that country on August 24," Gaynor told The Gleaner yesterday.

18-MAN SQUAD
 
Whitmore named a 18-man squad of local players for the friendly international at the Hasley Crawford Stadium, starting at 7 p.m., Jamaica time.

Trinidad and Tobago next plays Honduras on September 1 in the CONCACAF Hexagonal round of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia Qualifiers and is using this game as part of their preparation.

The game continues the commitment of the JFF to secure games on a regular basis for the national team as part of the rebuilding process of the team.

The squad will begin training on August 16. The full squad is: Amal Knight (UWI FC), Jamie Robinson (UWI FC), Ladale Ritchie (Montego Bay United), Javain Brown (Harbour View), Rosario Harriott (Harbour View), Alex Marshall (Cavalier SC), Kaheem Parris (Cavalier SC), Shawn Genus (Reno), Marvin Morgan (Arnett Gardens), Vishinul Harris (Arnett Gardens), Fabian Reid (Arnett Gardens), Leonardo Rankine (Sandals South Coast), Shamar Nicholson (Boys' Town), Shaven-Sean Paul (Portmore United), Michael Binns (Portmore United), Ewan Grandison (Portmore United), Ricardo Morris (Portmore United) and Rondee Smith (Portmore United).
