Smart beaver-trick help Civic U14s grab basket of goals at Rangers

Kern Smart doubled his goal tally of last season with an uninterrupted first-half beaver-trick to steer Point Fortin Civic Under-14s to a 7-0 win over hosts MIC-IT St. Ann’s Rangers on Sunday, Match Day Two of the 2018 Flow Youth Pro League #flowypl #wherestarsareborn.

Smart, of La Brea, scored in the 6th, 11th, 20th and 28th minutes to galvanize Civic U14s at St. Augustine Secondary before teammates Luke Phillip (36), Jaeden Henry (60) and Taye Simon (64) completed the romp and their first win of the season after two attempts to occupy fourth on the division’s standings behind, in descending order, leaders W Connection, Morvant Caledonia United and Police FC who all registered wins on Sunday.

Smart, last season, ended with just two goals to his name after a double scored in a 4-1 win over Club Sando in June, but could be on his way towards a brighter season in 2018 and should look to add to his tally when Civic host San Juan Jabloteh next Sunday at Mahaica Oval.

Civic, however, had to settle for a point against Rangers in both the Under-16 and Under-18 divisions but had done enough to return to Point Fortin unbeaten on Sunday.

Rangers, in an effort to rebound firstly through their U16s, saw Darius Douglas level them twelve minutes into the second half, after Thaj Neptune had put Civic ahead on 41 minutes at the St. Augustine venue. But seven minutes later Rangers had Tyrek Forbes sent with his second yellow card in a space of a dozen minutes — a blow that Civic failed to capitalize on — and both teams, at the final whistle, had to settle for a 1-1 result.

Rangers and Civic also played to a 1-1 draw in the U18 division. Stephon Joseph equalised late for Civic with two minutes left to complete the visitors’ unbeaten away trip after Matthias Kendo had put Rangers in front on 56 minutes.


In the surprise result of Sunday, Morvant Caledonia United U14s, the whipping boys of last season, edged San Juan Jabloteh 1-0 at San Juan North Secondary through a late Romario Nelson strike for a second win in as many matches under new coaches Sheldon De Freitas and Martin Romany.

Morvant Caledonia, though, surrendered full points in the U14 and U16 divisions by default for a second consecutive time and will look for their first points in both divisions when the host Police FC next Sunday at Barataria Oval.

Elsewhere, talented W Connection youth forward Molik Khan scored a double, first opening the Savonetta Boys’ U14’s scoring in the third minute then completing a 4-2 win against Club Sando four minutes from the end at the Ato Boldon Stadium.

Joshua Mason (8) had levelled Sando after Khan (M)’s opening strike and Jaylon Brereton (14) scored to send the visitors in at the break with a 2-1 lead. But Dantaye Gilbert (44) equalised for Connection from the penalty spot before teammate Ethan Trotman (52) restored the lead and Khan (M) (66) completing his double and the win.

Khan (M)’s elder brother Shoaib Khan also starred Sunday, scoring the only goal of the game to give Connection maximum points for a second time in as many matches, like their U14s, with a 1-0 win over Sando in the U18 division.

But earlier, Connection had to settle for a 2-2 draw against Sando in the U16 division despite a Denilson Dogan double. Dogan scored early on either side of the half against the visitors, first opening the scoring in the second minute then levelling Connection five minutes into the second half after Marc Warfe (13) and Menes Jahra (25) had sent Sando in at the break with the lead.

Also on Sunday, Police FC registered their first victories of the season in the U14 and U16 divisions with 3-2 wins over Defence Force FC at Frederick Settlement Ground in Caroni to maintain their unbeaten status this term. Police U18s, however, were held to a 1-1 draw by Defence Force FC.

FYPL: Jabloteh post trifecta while Eve debut with Sando U18s win

 Photo: Club Sando Under-18 starting line-up ahead of their Flow Youth Pro League 2018 clash with Police FC at the Mannie Ramjohn Stadium training field on Feb. 18, 2018.

Angus Eve hit the surface running as new Club Sando Under-18 coach, steering the young Oranges to a 3-0 win over Police FC at Mannie Ramjohn Stadium training ground in Marabella on Sunday, the opening day of the 2018 Flow Youth Pro League season.

Nikel Rawlins opened the scoring after just five minutes before a second half quick-fire double from Isa Bramble in the 54th and 56th minutes made sure of full points for Eve’s side against Police.

“I thought that Police (U18s) were well-organised but we were also organised and were able to be more effective in our ball movement and created more chances,” said Eve, who is also Sando’s first team coach.

“Although they (Police U18s) played well, I believe we could have had more goals. It was a good level of team performance by our players and encouragement going forward.”

Eve heaped praise on team captain Kodel Frontin, Daniel Lake, Ronaldo Mc Intosh, Dillon Yearwood, “influential midfielder” Nickel Rawlins and double-scorer Bramble who he said worked tirelessly throughout against a Police U18 side that had first team coach Richard Hood on their side lines.

“It augurs well for the players’ development to see (senior) Pro League coaches and staff working with the younger players in the Youth Pro League as I am doing now with Sando,” ended Eve.

Sando, though, had to settle for a point against the Blues in both the Under-14 and Under-16 divisions with the U14s, coached by Wayne Caesar, playing to a 1-1 draw after Anthony Williams levelled Police’s early lead through Jovonn Gomes before the U16s, coached by Keon Trim, battled to a 0-0 stalemate against the visitors.

Eve’s ex-club and reigning triple-triple champions San Juan Jabloteh were the only club to post wins in all three divisions through play yesterday while W Connection and St. Ann’s Rangers did so by virtue of wins by default over North East Stars and Central FC respectively.

Jabloteh, who achieved the extraordinary record of a third straight sweep of all three divisions in the FYPL last season, came from behind to defeat Defence Force 3-1 in the U14s at Trinity College East, then enjoyed a 3-0 win in the U16 division with Nathaniel James, who banged in a monstrous record-achieving 40 goals last season, scoring his team’s third and final goal.

Trevin Moore later scored five minutes from time to complete Jabloteh’s perfect day with a narrow 1-0 win over Defence Force in the U18 division at the Trincity venue.

Jabloteh will host Morvant Caledonia United next Sunday at San Juan North Secondary, while Club Sando must visit W Connection at the Ato Boldon Stadium main field.

W Connection picked up all three wins against North East Stars without a kick of the ball while Rangers, who defeated Central 3-1 in the U14s and 1-0 in the U16s, picked up their U18 win by default.

In other opening day results Morvant Caledonia defeated Point Fortin Civic 4-2 in the U14 division at Barataria Oval but surrendered full points to the southerners by default.

Flow Youth Pro League is environment where true development can take place says Skeene

Photo: TT Pro League CEO Dexter Skeene and Mrs. Cindy-Ann Gatt, Director of Marketing at Flow, are joined by a group of Flow Youth Pro League players during a photocall at the launch of the Flow YPL 2018 season at the VIP Lounge of the Hasely Crawford Stadium on Jan. 31, 2018.
The Flow Youth Pro League will, for the first time, include a knockout competition within its 2018 calendar which runs from February 18 through to May 27.

This along with increased television coverage by WI Sports (Flow channel 14) and heightened social media involvement were revealed during the Flow Youth Pro League 2018 launch on Wednesday at the VIP Lounge of the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Port-of-Spain.

“[The Flow Youth Pro League] is an environment where true development can take place,” said Pro League CEO Dexter Skeene during his opening remarks. “(…) as there is a week between games where recovery of the players can take place and most importantly coaching and preparation for the next weekend’s game. This Flow Youth Pro League attracts the best talent in the country and is structured in such a way to ensure greater competitiveness.”

A combined thirty teams representing the ten (10) Pro League clubs (Central FC, Club Sando, Defence Force FC, Morvant Caledonia United, North East Stars, Point Fortin Civic, Police FC, San Juan Jabloteh, St. Ann's Rangers and W Connection), will compete across three divisions: Under-14, Under-16 and Under-18 every Sunday from 10am2pmand 4pm respectively.

The league format, however, has been truncated to one round (February 18 – April 22) before second phase of the season (April 29 – May 27) features the inaugural knockout.

Last season Jabloteh produced the triple-triple, setting a new benchmark by becoming the first club to win all three divisions of the Flow Y-League three years in a row.

“The Flow Youth Pro League will continue to have a dynamic approach to youth football in T&T,” explained Skeene. “We will afford teams this year the opportunity to play two competitions and so be in line to win two competitions. This will bring further interest and generate excitement to the Flow Youth Pro League brand.

“Most importantly, the Flow Youth League will once again be on your television screens, weekly developing personalities and creating stars of the future.

“[And] in keeping with the modern environment and the modern youth, the space in which this generation operates is social media and accordingly the Flow Youth Pro League will focus a lot on a social media and awareness strategy. This year the League will continue to utilize social media to bring awareness and generate increased support for the Flow Youth Pro League. Each week the Flow Youth Pro League will offer awards to individuals who post the best pictures and videos of the games played every Sunday. This in my view is to build the fan base in the medium and short term. The Flow Youth Pro League is an important aspect of the TT Pro League achieving its goals in the medium and long term.”

Skeene also reminded that the Flow Youth Pro League continues to be a major supplier of players to Trinidad and Tobago Youth National Teams. “So we must use it to transform youth football in T&T and it is only fitting because the TT Pro League is the highest level in the football pyramid in T&T.

“Our goal is to continue to make the Flow Youth Pro League a compelling and attractive sports property which is cherished, admired and supported by all the youth. They must crave and want to play in it, support it and follow it. This will help build the fan base of the League. We can’t underestimate the value of this Youth Pro League, it mirrors the senior Pro League.”

The PL CEO said the Flow Youth Pro League is not only a development tool for the players but also important for young match commissioners, referees, coaches, trainers, managers and administrators.

Skeene commended Flow, now in their third year of sponsorship, for understanding the vision, mission and purpose of the Pro League's Youth programme.

He said the continued involvement of all clubs also affirms the Pro League’s unwavering faith in the talent and potential of the youth of the nation.

“Given these challenging economic times in Trinidad and Tobago, now more than ever, it is important to keep our young people motivated and confident in the system, the leaders and their future. Finding the right channels for our youth to fulfill their potential is critical at this juncture. What to me is most important is that the development of the youth of the country and the development of the people can never be in recession,” added the former Trinidad and Tobago footballer.

“This is one aspect of my job that I love the most,” said Cindy-Ann Gatt, Director of Marketing at Flow. “Through initiatives like this, we at Flow get the opportunity to invest in and nurture young talent.

“We are proud to continue for another year as we look forward to seeing talented young players touching the ball. If it’s anything like last year, I am sure we are going to have another great season, with our version of the international FA Cup – as spirited, determined young players give their all.

“While some may down cry the future of T&T football, I beg to disagree. Based on what I have seen, we are far from finished. At last year’s prize giving event, I said the Trinidad and Tobago football legacy is far from over. I maintain that to be true. The fact we have [30] teams participating this year, shows that these youngsters have not let up and neither have their coaches.

“When Flow signed up to become a partner with the Youth Pro League we didn’t anticipate just how rewarding this would be. As a partner, the YPL has elevated Flow not just from the perspective of brand visibility, but the partnership has reinforced our passion for sport and youth and the development of both areas. We are also glad to be involved in a partnership which promotes the development of young men in sport.”

Gatt said stories in media are heart-breaking especially as young men are involved in some of the darkest of acts. She believes the Youth Pro League is a safe place for our young men to learn about self-care, brotherhood, respect, teamwork, strategy and peace. She said the real battle should be on the football field. “A goal scored is a celebration of persistence. A skate tackle or a red card is a life lesson to learn. A game loss offers the opportunity to do better the next time.”

Predictably, history-rewriting San Juan Jabloteh, Nathaniel James, Justin Araujo-Wilson, Jevaughn Humphrey top Flow Youth Pro League 2017 awards

San Juan Jabloteh scooped twelve of the twenty-five top gongs, including the Club of the Year honour, when the Flow Youth Pro League hosted its 2017 awards at the VIP Lounge of the Hasely Crawford Stadium on Thursday.

The San Juan Kings rewrote the history books, yet again, in the just concluded FYPL #wherestarsareborn by becoming champions of all three (Under-13, Under-15 and Under-17) divisions for a third consecutive time #tripletriplechampions and it didn’t come a surprise the club topped the awards ceremony.

Nathaniel James, Jabloteh’s U13 star striker, led with the division’s MVP, Most Outstanding Forward and Most Goals awards. Jabloteh’s Tyrell Wiley and Emmanuel John received the awards for Most Outstanding U15 Midfielder and Most Outstanding U17 Goalkeeper respectively.

Nathaniel James’ 40 goals in all divisions (39 for the U13s and 1 for the U15s) in 2017 also stands a new YPL record, smashing the amounts achieved previously by players such as current Honduras-based forward Jerrel Britto a decade ago, and 2016 U13 top-scorer, Justin Araujo-Wilson.

Araujo-Wilson, of SKHY FC—the adopted youth club of Defence Force, was also a standout among those honoured on Thursday. The now, almost-6-foot, Under-15 forward received the division’s MVP, Most Outstanding Forward and Most Goals (14) awards while W Connection’s Jevaughn Humphrey got the awards for Most Outstanding Forward and Most Goals in the Under-17s.

Che Benny, who is currently away on trial at Sweden’s Allmänna Idrottsklubben (AIK), was named the U17 MVP.

“It’s a great feeling to motivate you to work harder each year and become the best that you can be, so that you can try to do better the next season and the season after that,” said Araujo-Wilson on receiving another top-scorer award.

“I’m working on becoming a professional player,” continued the Fatima College and Trinidad and Tobago Under-15 footballer. “…that’s my dream, and I won’t stop until it happens. It’s just to keep on working and keep on doing my thing.”


Winning another Most Goals award, however, came a shock to the talented forward, who missed more than half his team’s outings due to training and competition with the national U15 team.

“…to put the ball in the back of the net is (always) a good feeling in your heart and your soul, to know that you have contributed to the team,” Araujo-Wilson added. “This season I was actually surprised. I came out with 14 goals and (…) a good goal to game ratio to be proud of. I am truly blessed to get these awards.”

Araujo-Wilson also praised the achievement of new record scorer of a season, Nathan James, saying, “Nathaniel is an amazing young player, scoring 40 goals this season, and I can tell he has a great future in the Pro League and international football also.”

The pint-sized Nathaniel had a hard time balancing three awards during photocalls, perhaps far a contrast in the ease he had in banging in the goals all season. His warm smile, humility, and of course his ability on the pitch, however, could only mean more proud moments for parents Dahlia Pierre-James and Mark James.

An aspiring professional international footballer, Nathaniel already has a blueprint of his immediate, midterm and long-term goals. “Make the national U15 team then upwards. Attain eight CSEC passes. Play professionally abroad,” said the La Horquetta-born Queen’s Royal College student.

“I enjoyed (the) season,” he said of his successful debut season in the FYPL. “I enjoyed having the experience of the Pro League team; training three days a week and game on a Sunday. I enjoyed the experience of playing amongst many talented players.

“(Now) I feel proud of myself although I didn’t expect I would score many goals.”

Jabloteh secured the 2017 U15 crown, with two games to spare, on June 25, and a week later (July 2), secured the U17 title on the penultimate day. And on the final day, last Sunday, held off a sterling challenge by Police FC to record a staggering triple three-peat.

Pro League CEO Dexter Skeene applauded Jabloteh on “possibly (an) unassailable achievement”. The former Trinidad and Tobago footballer and coach told the players present, “…even though some of you don’t receive awards, you are all winners just by participating and making a decision to improve yourself.”

“I knew this FYPL was going to be a thrilling season,” said Cindy-Ann Gatt, director of marketing at Flow. “We have some of our best, most talented young players in a competition that is our version of the international FA Cup – spirited, determined young players, giving their all in every match. It goes to show that the Trinidad and Tobago football legacy is far from over.”

Gatt, who said her company wants to play its part in seeing T&T qualify for other FIFA World Cups, reminded players that there are a lot of lessons to be learnt on the field that would only make them better, stronger footballers.

She added, “When Flow signed up to be become a partner with the Youth Pro League we didn't anticipate just how rewarding this would be. As a partner, the YPL has elevated Flow not just from the perspective of brand visibility, but the partnership has reinforced our passion for sport and youth and the development of both areas. We are also extremely satisfied to be in a partnership which promotes the development of young men in sport; particularly when we are hearing disturbing stories about young men in our country. We hope we have been able to help you go in the right direction of self-determination and self-respect.”

Dave Weeks, Andre Morales and Gilbert Bateau, all of San Juan Jabloteh, received the FYPL Coach of the Year awards for U13, U15 and U17 respectively.

Weekes, who has served Jabloteh for almost two decades, and Bateau were also recognized for their contribution to football youth football along with club chairman Jerry Hospedales and team administrator Phillip Fraser. W Connection longstanding U13 coach and former national footballer, Leonson Lewis, was also recognised for his contribution to youth football while team administrator Debbie-Ann Harewood received the FYPL Administrator of the Year award.
