National defender Aubrey David left for Jakobstad, Finland yesterday for a trial with Finnish Premier League club FF Jaro.

David, a former national Under-17 and U-20 defender, has been one of the consistent players coming out of the T&T youth system and has been a regular in the pool of T&T senior players for the past year or more.

“It’s a two-week trial but I’m going there with the intention to give it my best shot and hopefully stay one time with the club,” David said.

“It’s going to be down to hard work and God will take care of the rest. I’ve looked forward to an opportunity like this for some time now and hopefully all will go well. I’m really excited about the opportunity. I think I’ve grown as a player in recent times because of the exposure with the national team I intend to keep on advancing my game,” David said.

The 23-year-old David has made 16 appearances for the T&T team and is currently attached to Caledonia AIA. David will hope to become the second T&T player to join Jaro after local striker Shahdon Winchester had a stint with the club last season while on loan from W Connection.
