Aye Fakoory, why don't you sack yourself and stop this fakoory. I said in the beginning that the people that sponsored your team should sue your arse for just being you. When are you going to win something and why are you in the game? What is your purpose for owning a team?  :pissedoff: :banginghead: :cursing: :'( :bs:

Rangers and MIC-Institute of Technology team up to offer players football and tertiary education skills.
ttproleague.com.


Professional football club St. Ann's Rangers and Metal Industries Company Institute of Technology (MIC-IT) have teamed up in a historic partnership that provides an incredible two-fold opportunity to young men and women of Trinidad and Tobago.

The first of its kind in the Trinidad and Tobago Pro League era, the focus of the partnership – which will initially run for three years – is geared towards allowing aspiring professional footballers an opportunity to continue their education and technical skills up to tertiary level and beyond.

As a result, the football club will now be called MIC-IT St. Ann’s Rangers or simply MIC-IT STAR ahead of the new 2017 TTPL season which kicks off in late May.

“[The partnership] is destined for greatness,” said MIC-IT St. Ann’s Rangers general manager Jason Spence during the unveiling of the partnership last Friday at the MIC Institute of Technology head coach in Macoya.

MIC Institute of Technology, an accredited institution which offers training to men and women from age 17 to 50, is an agency of the Ministry of Education Tertiary Education Division. Its mission is to be a catalyst for developing national technical and vocational competencies for competitive industries through quality training, innovation, manufacturing and engineering products and services.

The partnership will benefit players of MIC-IT STAR Under-19 team, Women’s Team and the professional team.

Shem Alexander, Sports Specialist at MIC-IT, and close friend Adrian Romain were the architects of the MIC-IT STAR partnership.

Alexander, a former midfielder at St. Ann’s Rangers, said the partnership will be mutually beneficial to both parties. He said the Sports and Mentorship departments along with the Marketing Division of MIC-IT are always committed to the new and innovative means of enhancing trainee life and helping to attract more trainees into their programme.

“Both MIC-IT and St. Ann’s Rangers are fully committed in pooling our resources to achieve our goals,” added Alexander.

Alexander also said that Richard Fakoory, who co-owns the St. Ann’s-based club with Richard Piper, “wasn’t only excited about the number of youths he would see turning away from a life of crime, but also the opportunity for them to be educated.”

MIC-IT has achieved a number of strategic partnerships with the Government of Trinidad and Tobago; the ICON Institute and the Chamber of Crafts and Trades, Germany; the American Welding Society (AWS) and other accredited institutions.

The benefits of such partnerships define MIC Institute of Technology as a training institution, offering programmes such as the Journeyman National Skills Development Programme (NSDP); Master Craftsman certifications in Mechanical, Electrical/Electronic and Mechatronics; Helping You Prepare for Employment (HYPE); Industrial Craft Programme (ICP); Multi-Sector Skills Training (MuST); Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR); Engineer-In-Training and other specialised and customised training programmes.

“Wouldn’t it be great as a player to win the league or qualify for the Caribbean Club Championship – which is definitely one of our goals –along with graduating as a qualified tradesman with a skill for life?” Spence questioned.

The MIC-IT STAR general manager added that MIC-IT and St. Ann’s Rangers have seen the positive and profound impact that merging their resources can have on the young population in their “confidence, their self-esteem, on society, on crime, and on their future.”

“On the part of MIC-IT, the highly focused technical trainee is given an opportunity to express him or herself in the beautiful game of football at the highest level in Trinidad and Tobago—the TT Pro League.

“Now that these two very experienced, durable, ambitious entities have come together… football wins… tertiary education wins… and more importantly, the trainee or player will come out the overall winner.

“MIC-IT St. Ann’s Rangers is now offering this opportunity to all young persons in Trinidad and Tobago who have an inner desire to achieve and develop holistically—on and off the field; in and out of the classroom,” concluded Spence.

Alexander meanwhile said MIC-IT STAR hopes to tap in on income generating opportunities such as gate fees, transfer fees of players, sale of branding materials and sponsorship.

Anthony Streete, who led the Pro League outfit to an improved seventh-place finish last season, will continue as coach of MIC-IT STAR for the 2017 season.

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

Saint Lucia beats Rangers 2-1 in football friendly

Saint Lucia beats Rangers 2-1 in football friendly
By Terry Finisterre (St. Lucia News Online)


Saint Lucia got the Jamaal Shabazz era underway on Friday with a 2-1 friendly win over Trinidad and Tobago club team, Horquetta Rangers.

Shabazz, the Trinidad and Tobago national, has previously coached Guyana to their biggest leaps in the FIFA rankings, and has coached several Saint Lucians during his time in the managerial ranks of the Trinidad and Tobago Pro League.

He got his tenure underway by deploying a 4-4-2 formation, featuring four under-23 players: goalkeeper Vino Barclett, and outfield players Djal Augustin, Alvinus Myers, and Melvin Doxilly. Overseas-based professionals, captain Zaine Pierre, Kurt Frederick, Otev Lawrence, Lester Joseph, and Andrus Remy lined up with Jevick MacFarlane and Antonio Joseph.

Saint Lucia looked bright in the first half, but did not capitalise on the chances they created. Kurt Frederick converted from the penalty spot in the 15th minute to give the home team a 1-0 halftime lead.

A defensive lapse in the 50th minute gave Tyrone Charles the opportunity to equalise for the Trinidadians. But just five minutes later, up popped Andrus Remy to convert for the home team.

According to Shabazz, he was pleased to see some of the positives that came out of Friday’s match, but he recognises that there is a lot of work yet to be done.

Saint Lucia football completes a second 2-1 win over Rangers
By Terry Finisterre (St. Lucia News Online)


Trinidad and Tobago-based defender Kurt Frederick remained consistent, and boosted his attacking reputation, by getting on the scoresheet for Team Saint Lucia in a second straight win over La Horquetta Rangers, a club in the Trinidad and Tobago Professional League.

Saint Lucia won 2-1 again, at the Daren Sammy Cricket Ground, 28-year-old Frederick and Under-23 player Alvinus ‘Pogba’ Myers scoring for the home team.

Myers is one of several U23-eligible players who have featured over the course of the two friendlies, the first two matches under former Guyana coach, Jamaal Shabazz.

Midfielder Djal Augustin, who is at college in the United States, made his senior debut on Friday. Defender Sebastian Ribot, who plays professionally in Spain, made his debut off the bench on Friday, and was introduced in the starting lineup on Sunday. Also in the starting 11 on Sunday was forward Noah ‘Lucky’ Nicholas. Meanwhile, Gabriel ‘Gelco’ Biscette and Jardel Harrow came in off the bench on Sunday.

Saint Lucia plays a third match against Rangers on Tuesday afternoon at the Sab Playing Facility in Vigie, Castries.

Strange, my Spanish is bad, however, it seems like Jomoul Francois was subbed on in the 25th min and subbed off in the 63rd vs San Vicente yesterday?

Rangers promises to release players for T&T team.
By Walter Alibey (T&T Guardian).


T&T Pro League campaigners La Horquetta Rangers is re-confirming its commitment to assisting the T&T team ahead of the World Cup qualifying play-offs, by making its players available, but only after the team competes in a high-stake tournament that starts next month.

The club's owner Richard Ferguson is challenging national coach Terry Fenwick and his men, to a $100, 000-winner-takes all match, and he said he is prepared to up the stakes by an additional $100, 000 if permission is given for spectators to be allowed to enter the playing venue.

That match, it is understood could take place early next week, but Ferguson, in a move to convey his commitment to the country, sought to clear the air on his reasons for not allowing his players to train with the national team, via a letter to the National Team Director Richard Piper yesterday.

In his letter, he said: "We take this opportunity to thank you for considering our players in regards to training with the national team coach, however, after discussions with the club's Board of Directors and coaching staff, it was decided that it was not prudent to release the requested players at his juncture. Please consider the following reasons: (1) We expect to be playing in a league in April with significant prize money and it is very important that we prepare for this league vigorously.

Therefore, we need to have full access to all of our players to compete effectively. (2) Our coaches have developed an extensive training, nutrition and fitness programme for our players for the upcoming competition, and as a result, the absence of key players for such a long time would affect the plans of the club adversely. In addition, our players have been training together for over two years and they are very fit."

Ferguson and Fenwick have been at loggerheads over Rangers reluctance to release its players outside of the FIFA window.

However, with no football taking place for the past year or so, Ferguson has been the subject of much criticism for his stance, while Fenwick's unit remains in dire need of reinforcement.

Rangers, in its letter also pointed out that his team possesses many talents that will be an asset to the country. "However, we stand ready to assist the national senior team with their preparations for the upcoming international competitions. We suggest that we play the national team a practice game where coach Fenwick can see the team in action, and he can then select the players he wishes to play for T&T."

"You should also note that we have expanded our squad over the last 10 months, and we currently have players that coach Fenwick has never seen before and they would be an excellent option for the national team coach to consider."

The T&T team is preparing for its Concacaf World Cup qualifying match against Guyana on March 25 in the Dominican Republic. So far, the team has played an international friendly against the USA and lost 7-0 and last Saturday recorded an 8-0 victory against Orange XI of Tobago.

A few weeks before the qualifier, the  owner agrees to release his players. His ego-driven rationale makes no sense.

And this from a man who was hell bend on becoming the federation prez. these local trinis are so loco and deranged, and if any stranger were to be looking in on this kind of manic behavior which is nothing less of astonishing, they would be lost for words as to how these people do business, and from captain to cook, they all lack the ability to be the sobering voice. do these people ever really took serious thought as to their destructive behavior?? it’s rather embarrassing.

Rangers players get green-light to join Eve's training.
By Walter Alibey (T&T Guardian).


Permission was granted for five players from T&T Pro League outfit La Horquetta Rangers to represent the T&T Senior National team under new coach Angus Eve, at the CONCACAF Gold starting from July 2.

Rangers owner Richard Ferguson immediately said yes to a request by national team manager Adrian Romain, for midfielders Aikim Andrews and Jamal Creighton: strikers - Keston George and Isaiah Lee: and defender Ross Russell Jr to be given time off without loss of status or earning. Ferguson has maintained throughout that he never had a problem releasing his players to represent the country and has shown it by his immediate response to Romain's letter. Sacked national coach Terry Fenwick encountered difficulty as he requested the players outside of the required FIFA window.

Romain's letter stated: "Our Men's Senior National Team has qualified to participate in the Preliminary Stage of the 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup which will take place in the United States and starts on July 2nd with our first-round qualifier against Montserrat to be played at the DRV PNK Stadium in Ft Lauderdale, USA. Should we win that game, we advance to the Second Round of the qualification scheduled for July 6 at the same venue.

Once successful, we advance to the Group Stage of the Tournament which starts on July 10th and will run until the Gold Cup final on August 1st. I write to notify you that Aikim Andrews, Jamal Creighton, Keston George, Isaiah Lee and Ross Russell Jr have been selected in our provisional squad. The actual 23 man squad will be confirmed no later than Monday 28th June 2021 after which travel details will be finalised for those selected."

The players will add to a host of local players who have already been training with the team under Fenwick, but most of whom did not get a chance to play.

However, Eve, at a virtual press conference on Monday said as a stickler for local talent, he felt local players never got a fair chance.

The T&T Soca Warriors, recently booted out of the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers in only the first round, will be eager to make amends when they take on Montserrat in the opening match. Should they emerge from that match they will face either French Guiana or Cuba.

The team is expected to enter a residential camp from June 19 to 22.

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

La Horquetta Rangers fully vaccinated.
T&T Guardian Reports.


More than three weeks after being the host of a virtual meeting of the T&T Football Association members to pursue vaccines for its members, Keiron Edwards, the General Manager of La Horquetta Rangers, is claiming his club is fully vaccinated.

Edwards in a release on July 22 said: "I Kieron Edwards, Terminix La Horquetta Rangers General Manager, would like to confirm that all players, coaches and ground staff of the team has either been fully vaccinated or have received their first dose of vaccination. This totals over 40 individuals that have taken their jab. Terminix La Horquetta Rangers is the first professional club where all persons have taken heed to the Prime Minister’s statement of ‘vaccinate to operate’"

It was only on July 6 that Edwards hosted a meeting at which he convinced the majority of the football membership to collectively encourage its members to avail themselves of the COVID-19 vaccines in order to restart football in the communities and in the country.

Following the meeting, Edwards said: "TTFA Member-Stakeholders consider the restart of football of all Leagues and Competitions in the country to be essential, with the full vaccination of footballers, coaches, technical staff, referees, and other related personnel, and would welcome working directly with the Ministry of Health to facilitate this exercise in the earliest possible timeframe.

The envisaged immunization would have all Members of our football fraternity visit the venues of the Ministry of Health to facilitate the exercise, similar to what has been done for the Chamber of Commerce, the TTMA, the Supermarket Association and other such entities."

The full vaccination of football members will also clear the way for the staging of the Ascension Invitational Football League which will cater for action among the Women's Football League (WoLF), T&T Pro League and Super League, the Regional Associations- Eastern Football Association, Northern FA, Southern FA, Central FA, Tobago FA and the Eastern Counties Football Union (ECFU), as well as Futsal and Beach Soccer.

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