A football skills challenge is being proposed as an alternative for this year's Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) if the League is unable to be held due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic which continues to affect sports in Trinidad and Tobago.

Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) coaches got to air some of their concerns about remuneration when the National Football Coaches of Trinidad and Tobago (NFCTT) continued its town hall-styled meetings on Saturday. Present at the meeting were SSFL Premier Division coaches.
Sean Cooper, the former national youth standout and St Anthony's College midfielder/striker, is set to change the dynamics of T&T football. And he comes highly recommended from a number of this country's current and past professionals.
Former East Mucurapo Seconday football team manager Brinsley Hutson past away last Sunday at Mt Hope Hospital. Hutson suffered a stroke last Friday.
FORMER St Anthony’s College goalkeeper Jan-Michael Williams and former Queen’s Royal College (QRC) footballer Radanfah Abu Bakr both had fond memories of former football coach Nigel Grosvenor, who died on Friday.
NIGEL “Grovy” Grosvenor was remembered for the love he had for his family, football and pan, but also for the care he showed for all the young footballers during his coaching career that spanned over 30 years.
It is said that a good coach and good coaching can build will, skill, knowledge and capacity because it can go where no other professional development has gone before: into the intellect, behaviours, practices, beliefs, values and feelings of an educator and his or her students. You think I’m making this up? Ask any young student or footballer who passed through St Anthony’s College under the guidance of Nigel Grosvenor for just over the past two decades and they’ll tell you.
The legacy of coach Nigel "Grovey" Grosvenor left a lasting impression on many people in the Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) community and beyond.
He will be remembered and respected by most as the man who coached the St Anthony’s College Tigers to eight national secondary school football titles. Nigel ‘Grovy” Grosvenor was much more than that. He was a family man, disciplinarian, educator, business owner, and investor.
