PRESIDENT and Chief Executive Officer of DIRECTV W. Connection Football Club, Mr. David John-Williams has signaled his intention to run for the Presidency of the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association in the upcoming November Annual General Meeting.

The AGM, which will be held under the TTFA’s new constitution, is scheduled to take place on November 29th 2015.

Mr. John-Williams, who founded W. Connection some 16 years ago, making it one of the more successful clubs in the Caribbean, commented on his decision stating:

“I never came into Professional Football with the aspiration of taking administrative leadership of the local governing body, but having been approached by many colleagues in the football fraternity I decided to offer myself for service”.

He further added that his desire was to make a significant difference in local football, and believed that with his experience and fresh leadership, there could be a transformation in the fortunes of Trinidad and Tobago Football.

Mr. John-Williams presently serves as Vice Chairman of the Trinidad and Tobago Pro League.

TRINIDAD and Tobago’s senior footballers were back on the pitch at the Hasely Crawford Stadium on Saturday evening less than twenty four hours after returning home following their 2-1 victory over Panama on Thursday night.

Skipper Kenwyne Jones and his teammates arrived in Port of Spain shortly before midnight on Friday prior to  checking into the Carlton Savannah Hotel where they will be based for the duration of the training camp leading into Tuesday’s international friendly with Nicaragua at the Hasely Crawford Stadium which kicks off at 7pm.

 English-based defender Gavin Hoyte who started against Panama was only called up for that encounter based on an arrangement between the club and Hart to have the player return to Barnet FC on the weekend.

Following the win in Panama City, Jones  expressed satisfaction on the team’s showing, saying they had proven to themselves that overcoming opponents such as Panama and other potent Concacaf  rivals away from home is not beyond the team.

“It was a perfect indication of what we are going to face away from home especially in the Central American countries . We went out and tried a few things to see how it would work in the game and under the pressure and the environment we did very well,” Jones told TTFA Media.

Commenting on his strike which was his 21st goal for Trinidad and Tobago, he added  “Coming to places like this you have to try and strike the first blow and I saw the opportunity to take the shot early after having a chance before to have a shot . I just went with it. I went with instinct and thankfully it went into the net.”

He was particularly pleased about the team showing mettle to grind out a result away from home after Panama began piling on the pressure in the second half.

“That just shows the strength, character and depth in the team . Even though after making changes, the players that came in did pretty well in soaking up the pressure.

“Of course Panama would have some dominance because they were at home but for our team I think over these two years we have grown quite a lot and you can see by the way that we play and the togetherness of the group that we have been getting better and stronger. It’s no surprise that we can go to places and hold out on pressure and especially where we are on top it gives us confidence to hold for the result.”

Looking ahead to Tuesday’s encounter with Nicaragua, the Cardiff City man stated, “For us we are just going to go forward positively. It’s good preparation for us. We are looking forward to playing in front home fans since the Gold Cup. Hopefully the masses will come out and support the team because it’s important that we have this support especially going into the qualifiers that we can feel because home advantage does count,” Jones added.

Defender Radanfah Abu Bakr who scored the 52nd minute winner with his headed goal, said it was important for T&T to get into the habit of bringing home positive results.

“We are very pleased with the away result. Wins away from CONCACAF are not easy to come by. We know the quality we have from set pieces from Cummings and the other guys. And we have some big guys in our squad. The service was there so it was just had to get on the end of it. It was important to go 2-0 up at that stage of the game. Unfortunately we let them back in it but we did well to hold on for the win,” Abu Bakr said.

 “But it’s  a testament to the unity in the group and how we stick together on the pitch when things get difficult and we don’t have the ball for long periods and it was good to see we were willing and able to buckle down and defend,” the Denmark-based player added.

Tickets  priced at $200 and $100 for Tuesday’s encounter can be purchased online at www.islandetickets.com, Sports & Games nationwide, The Fan Club, Fan Zone, Kenny’s Sports in Port of Spain and Ramsingh’s Sportworld in Couva.
