Karyn on mission to develop Tobago football.
By Kareece Nelson (Newsday).

Senior national women’s footballer Karyn Forbes is back in the seaside village of Plymouth where she is currently preparing for her fourth instalment of the “Kick it with Karyn” football tournament on Saturday.

Forbes, 26, is currently pursuing a Masters in Communications, Management and Counselling at Northwood University in Texas, however she returns home annually to do her part in promoting and developing football on the island.

The event will showcase several matches inclusive of under 12 boys and girls and a open match for men.

In an interview with Newsday, Forbes said, “The aim of this competition is really to give back to the community and also to raise awareness in youth football in Trinidad and Tobago. Every year, I continue to develop the tournament by increasing the scope of the event.

“In the first year of the event, there where only matches for men. In the second year, I introduced women matches, and in the third year I developed on those matches. This year, the under 12 boys and girls were introduced to the event. In the future I would like to establish my own league on the island.”

Forbes, being a national footballer since being a student at Signal Hill Secondary School, said there is a lot of room for the development of football.

She added, “We really don’t have a lot of events aimed at football development in Tobago. It is important to have the youth playing football consistently. There is even a need to improve the infrastructure and the equipment within the sport as it is lacking. I have noticed this within the sport from primary school all the way up to secondary schools.

One of my goals is to help the youth to become recognised not only in Tobago but in Trinidad as well.

This would afford them more opportunities to get on the national team.”

As the teams gear up for Saturday, there is more than bragging rights to be won, as Forbes told Newsday that there is over $10,000 in cash prizes, trophies and medals on offer.

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

Reduced $$prizes for TFA clubs Saturday.
By Walter Alibey (Guardian).

Stokely Vale FC, winner of the Premier Division of the Tobago Football Association Competition will on Saturday be presented with its earnings of $50,000 for the 2017 season, when the Prizegiving Ceremony takes place at the Fair Field Complex in Bacolet Tobago from 5pm.

The amount was reduced from the original $100,000 due to challenges with gate receipts, reduced allocation from the Tobago House of Assembly (THA), rescheduled matches due to unsuitable playing surfaces, unmarked pitches, waterlogged perimeters, inadequate lighting and non-functioning equipment among others, a release from the TFA stated yesterday.

TFA president Anthony Moore said the reduction in prizes was necessary and was communicated to the clubs.

According to Anthony, "As you are well aware, the 2017 season was envisaged as a year of transition to self-sufficiency for the Tobago Football Association, with proposed record-breaking increases in prize-money to clubs and gate revenue sharing arrangements with Premier Division Clubs." He said his association could not honour its commitment due to the reasons listed above.

"The full impact of the above factors resulted in a prolonged 2017 season and negatively impacted the ability of the TFA to achieve its budgeted gate revenues at our two main paying venues - the Cyd Gray Complex, Roxborough and Mt. Pleasant Recreational Ground," Moore explained.

He noted, "We are currently reviewing our proposed prize structure for 2018 in keeping with the new fiscal reality in Tobago and the intention is to achieve some degree of parity with other Zones in Trinidad."

Moore, a member of the Board of the T&T Football Association, said he was grateful that, in spite of the challenges, his association was able to complete its Premier, 1st Division, Tobago FA, RBL Youth Cup, NLCB Elite Youth, and THA District Games Competitions.

Apart from Stokely Vale, Signal Hill United is also set to walk away with $25,000 from its original $40,000 amount for placing second, while Sidey FC will collect $15,000 for third instead of the initial $20,000 prize.

Meanwhile, in the First Division, FC Goodwood will collect a $20,000 winner's cheque while Moriah Youths and Carnbee Mt Pleasant will receive $12,000 and $8,000 respectively.

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

Stokely Vale lifts $25,000 TFA crown.
By Nigel Simon (Guardian).

Ste­fano Wright scored a pair of sec­ond-half goals to earn Ply­mouth-based Stoke­ly Vale FC a 4-2 tri­umph against FC Good­wood in the To­ba­go Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion’s Na­tion­al Lot­ter­ies Con­trol Board FA Tro­phy fi­nal at the Mt Pleas­ant Recre­ation, Mt Pleas­ant, last Fri­day. The tour­na­ment’s fairy­tale team, Good­wood, struck as ear­ly as the eighth minute through Mark Agard but then gift­ed Stoke­ly Vale the equalis­er when Clear­ance Ren­nie con­ced­ed an own-goal in the 29th for both teams to go in 1-1 at the half-time whis­tle.

Six min­utes af­ter the restart, Wright got his first to put his Stoke­ly Vale ahead for the first time but Good­wood soon got back on lev­el terms via De­on Thomas in the 58th minute.

Stoke­ly Vale then took to the front again in the 77th minute thanks to L’Che Ed­wards and four min­utes lat­er Wright got his sec­ond to push the lead to 4-2, af­ter which Good­wood strug­gled to mount an­oth­er fight­back.

With the win, Stoke­ly Vale walked away with $25,000 while Good­wood picked up $12,000 for the sec­ond spot.

In the semi­fi­nals at the same venue on Tues­day night, Stoke­ly Vale need­ed a 46th-minute equalis­er from Ed­wards to can­cel out Kean­uo Brath­waite’s 33rd-minute open­er for Carn­bee/Mt Pleas­ant, be­fore ek­ing out a 4-3 penal­ty-kicks win.

And in the sec­ond semi­fi­nal, Kursel Vin­cent banged home a de­ci­sive4 74th-minute item to earn FC Good­wood a 2-1 tri­umph over Sidey’s FC.

De­on Thomas had giv­en FC Good­wood a 1-0 lead in the 47th minute be­fore Pavel War­rick drew Sidey’s lev­el in the 61st, on­ly for Vin­cent to strike and con­tin­ue his team’s fairy-tale run. Be­fore the FA fi­nal, Sidey’s al­so won nar­row­ly over Carn­bee/Mt Pleas­ant in the third-place match 3-2.

Bran­don Ben­jamin and Kyle David­son net­ted in the 21st and three min­utes in­to time added on at the end of the first-half for Sidey’s to lead 2-0.

Ax­el George pulled a goal back for Carn­bee/Mt Pleas­ant in the 52nd, on­ly for Pavel War­rick to re­store Sidey’s two-goal cush­ion in the 66th.

But six min­utes lat­er, Navelle Roach net­ted a sec­ond for Carn­bee/Mt Pleas­ant to get his team with­in one goal again at 2-3. In the end, how­ev­er, Sidey’s held on for the win.

Mean­while, Belle Gar­den FC and Carn­bee/Mt Pleas­ant FC reg­is­tered lop­sided wins when match­es in the To­ba­go Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion Pre­mier Di­vi­sion re­sumed on Sun­day with a dou­ble-head­er at Mt Pleas­ant.

In the open­er, Carn­bee/Mt Pleas­ant FC ham­mered Lam­beau FC 5-0 with a goal each from Darielle Al­leyne (11th), Tyrese Sandy (29th), Ka­reem Agard (31st penal­ty), Lester Roberts (37th penal­ty) and Ax­el George (75th) to im­prove to 34 points from 19 match­es, four adrift of Stoke­ly Vale and Sig­nal Hill.

In the oth­er matchup, Hen­son Charles banged in six goals in the 29th, 51st, 55th, 66th, 80th and 87th min­utes in Belle Gar­den’s 10-4 blast­ing of Bethel Unit­ed.

Chris­t­ian Job added a pair of goals for Belle Gar­den (31st & 84th) while Tyreece Tay­lor (70th) and Dil­lon Vil­lafana (77th) al­so net­ted in the win as they al­so moved to 34 points, but from 18 match­es, in­to fifth.

The quar­tet of Nick­o­las Smart (sev­enth), Tirel Chad­band (ninth), Tur­rel James (19th) and Ke­ston Dun­can (40th) got the goals for Bethel Unit­ed, who re­mained 13th with 13 points, the same at FC Good­wood.

Adams double keeps Georgia ahead in TFA
By Nigel Simon (T&T Guardian)

Weah Adams net­ted a first-half brace to guide Geor­gia FC over Gold­en Lane 3-0 to main­tain their com­fort­able lead at the top of the To­ba­go Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion Pre­mier Di­vi­sion at Mt Pleas­ant Recre­ation Ground on Tues­day.

Adams got his dou­ble in the 30th and 38th while Jabari Mitchell found the net in the 35th dur­ing an eight-minute spell which turned the match on its head.

The vic­to­ry lift­ed Geor­gia to 57 points from 24 match­es on the 16-team ta­ble, sev­en ahead of Sig­nal Hill Unit­ed while Leeds Unit­ed is third, a fur­ther two points back.

On Sun­day, Sig­nal Hill got hat-tricks from Christo­pher Mor­gan (20th, 69th, 84th) and De­von Stew­art (28th, 35th, 86th) to come-from-be­hind and pun­ish Lam­beau FC 11-1.

Miguel George added a dou­ble in the 25th and 31st, and Dar­ryl Trim (5th, and Ken­vern Mar­celle (37th) one each af­ter Lam­beau FC had gone ahead through a David Fran­cis strike in the eighth minute.

Leeds Unit­ed got a hat-trick from Keon Bouch­er in an 8-1 ham­mer­ing of Bethel Unit­ed to briefly trim Geor­gia FC’s lead al­so on Sun­day at Ply­mouth Recre­ation Ground.

Bouch­er got his goals in the 16th, 73rd and 79th min­utes for Leeds af­ter Tereek Richards had fired in an eighth-minute open­er while Kevon Adams (70th) and Ke­ston Rod­ney (88th) were al­so on tar­get along with two own goals from Donelle Williams in the 22nd, and An­ton Si­mon in the 68th. Nicholas Smart got the lone item for Bethel Unit­ed, the last-minute strike.
