Mucurapo Senior Comprehensive, 1978: Glennon Foncette (goalkeeper); Novell Gittens (skipper); Glenroy McKenzie; Kenneth Vincent; Emmerson Dubisson; Philip Thomas (deceased); Randy Glasgow; Ian Clauzel; Eric White; Wendell "Tractor" Belgrave (deceased); Jr. Jones; Garth Wilson; Winston Lane, Anthony Moore and Curtis Riley.

To my misfortunate, I only seen just a brief video of Clauzel. I heard Eric White was a very good player. I am very familiar with Curtis Riley. He went Davis and Elkins. He would come to DC in the summer. He would play for DC Juniors, coached by Trevor Leiba and manged by Gilian Moore.
Very good defender. Could play anywhere in the back, but was very solid at stopper. Read the game very well. Very nice gentleman. He is in Orlando now.

I heard White was good and that his older brother Denzil was even better.

Wherever you saw that vid of Cluazel, Is it still around? ;-)

The video is probably with TTT, if it is still there.  And yes I heard Eric's brother Denzil  was great also. He may have played for the national team. I am not sure.

So, when did InterCol lose its appeal to neutral fans? Back in de day there were many more neutral fans at matches.

What grabbed me was Foncette's quotes on the Final. You could feel it when he spoke, the tension and excitement was palpable.
