St Anthony's cruise to 4-0 win over Speyside

By Sports Desk November 26, 2019

St Anthony’s College cruised into the semifinal of the Coca Cola National Intercollegiate league on the back of hammering Speyside 4-0, at the Hasely Crawford Stadium on Tuesday.

In a one-sided affair, St Anthony’s, the North Zone champions, dominated throughout the fixture and found the back of the net as early as the 3rd minute.  It was a poorly marked Kiron Manswell who opened the scoring with a delicate chip into the net from a low cross.  After missing several presentable opportunities to extend their lead, Jean-Heim Mcfee’s low drive from 25-yards again bulged the target to finally extend the lead in the 30th minute.

Kahim Thomas put St Anthony’s out of sight with a swerving freekick four minutes later, which goalkeeper Kadeem Joseph seemed to badly misjudge.

  In another chance-filled half, Kai Phillip put the polish on a dominant performance from St Anthony when he blasted another long-range effort into the back of the net in the 79th minute.  The midfielder threatened to add another five minutes later but failed to get enough venom on a shot after slithering his way past the Speyside backline.

St Anthony’s will face Presentation College in the competition’s semi-final round.  Presentation edged Naparima College 4-3 on penalty kicks, following a 1-1 regulation time finish in the South Zone Intercol final.

  • Warner given official nod for UK Privy Council appeal Warner given official nod for UK Privy Council appeal

    Former FIFA vice Jack Warner has officially been given final approval to appeal extradition proceedings filed against him to the UK Privy Council.

    Warner, the disgraced former CONCACAF boss, has been battling to avoid extradition to the United States since 2015.  The ex-football official faces charges of corruption stemming from alleged financial impropriety committed during a long tenure with world football’s governing body. 

    Last year, Warner tried and failed to have the extradition appeal dismissed on procedural grounds.  The three judges of Trinidad and Tobago’s Court of Appeal opted to uphold the original decision to dismiss Warner’s review, which was made in September 2017.

    Warner, who was also been ordered to pay US$79m in damages to CONCACAF by a federal judge in New York City last summer, is currently out on $TT 2.5m bail and banned for life by FIFA.

    The authority to proceed (ATP) with Warner’s extradition as part of the FIFA indictments, was signed in 2016 by Trinidad and Tobago Attorney General Faris Al-Rawi.  Warner is wanted on various counts of corruption, graft, bribery and money laundering.

     

  • TTFA must move quickly to address avalanche of financial issues claims former first VP Browne TTFA must move quickly to address avalanche of financial issues claims former first VP Browne

     Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) board member Selby Brown has insisted the body must move quickly to address an avalanche of financial issues, which threatens to drag the association into insolvency.

    Brown, who previously served as a first vice president under the David John-Williams administration, failed in his bid to get re-elected as second vice president’s position in Sunday’s elections, losing to United TTFA candidate Clynt Taylor.

    With the association facing debts in the region of $US 7,108,608, in a large part due to a culmination of several lawsuits, Brown insisted that the new administration must hit the ground running.

    “The delegates have spoken and that democracy must be respected, and I wish the United TTFA visionaries well. Most of those who served the previous regimes were the ones who incurred the huge debt of the TTFA of some $TT40 million and celebrated the added two judgments in the amount of $TT8.4 million last week. That does not include a further $TT15 million that Mr. Jack Warner claims is owed to him by the TTFA and confirmed by TTFA President Raymond Tim Kee in a letter dated November 2015,” Browne to insideworldfootball.

    The former vice president insisted that as well as the administrative issue, there were issues to solve off the field as well.

    “The vote by delegates for the United TTFA is No problem. They all intend to get billions from NIKE. Did they ask themselves the question: Why would a brand associate itself with a team that lost 14 out of 15 games?  What exactly is the benefit to the brand? Unless the United TTFA plans to provide Nike with a new slogan; ‘Wear NIKE and Lose’,” he continued.

    “I look forward to the TTFA urgently receiving the promised Nike sponsorship millions to avoid the TTFA from being declared bankrupt or avoiding insolvency.”

  • Wallace defeats Williams to become new TTFA president Wallace defeats Williams to become new TTFA president

    William Wallace, president of the Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL), defeated incumbent David John-Williams to become new Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) boss, at the Home of Football in Couva, on Sunday.

    It took two rounds of voting, but in the end, Wallace received 26 votes to John-William’s 20.  The first round of voting ended with no candidate able to get enough of the votes from the 46 delegates allowed to take part in the process.  The number needed to win the election was 24.  Wallace led with 20 votes, John-Williams had 16 and Richard Ferguson had 10.  Ferguson was as a result eliminated from the contest.  In the second round, it seems six of Ferguson’s supporters voted for Wallace and the remaining four selected John-Williams.

    The election result marked the end of a stormy tenure for John-Williams, who was often accused by his detractors of leading an authoritarian administration that lacked transparency.  The venue for the elections, the Home of Football, had long been held up as the crowning achievement of the John-Williams association and one of the main reasons it should have been handed a second term.  The argument, it seems, did not resonate well enough with the voters.

    In the vice-presidential contest, Clynt Taylor defeated Selby Browne 27-17 to claim the position of first vice-president.  Taylor is the Central FA general secretary while Browne, a member of John-Williams’ Team Impactors slate, is the interim president of the Veteran Footballers Foundation of Trinidad and Tobago (VFFOTT).
