“Trinidad and Tobago,” I patiently repeated for the second time.
“What?” She frustratingly retorted.
DirecTV W Connection midfielder Joevin Jones and longstanding head coach Stuart Charles-Fevrier, no strangers to individual accolades, were voted November/December Wendy’s player and Blue Waters coach of the month, respectively, on Wednesday. In addition, former W Connection midfielder, captain and assistant coach Reynold Carrington, now the coach of Pt Fortin Civic, was honoured as January Blue Waters Coach of the Month while striker Marcus Joseph, secured the double for Civic by picking up the January Wendy’s Player of the Month award. His six goals in five matches during January were helpful in PFC climbing from the bottom half of the table, to now occupy second position. “I feel great receiving this award for the first time,” said the T&T international. “And it’s something I’d like to continue achieving.”
Despite being grateful for the individual award, Carrington’s eyes are set on the League title. “I’m very humble to be in a league with such good coaches and be awarded coach of the month of January,” said the 44-year-old former T&T international. A former St Lucian international and T&T coach Charles-Fevrier, who picked up the Coach of the Month honour for September/October said he wants to share the achievement with the entire W Connection staff and players. He has already led the “Savonnetta Boys” to the Digicel Charity Shield, Toyota Classic and T&T Football Federation FA Trophy titles this season, while maintaining a healthy lead at the top of the league standings.
The very humble coach also also thanked sponsors Blue Waters and Wendy’s for their involvement, adding, “It’s what the professional league needs at the moment. It’s good to see the Player of the Month and Coach of the Month back. It’s something the players, especially, look forward too. Jones, meanwhile, said, “It’s always good to receive an award. It’s a really great feeling when you have these personal achievements. I’m aiming at taking my (top) performances throughout the season and try to achieve more.”
