A new-look T&T Football Association has taken
a bold approach in re-branding T&T s soccer. And
for many football lovers, the recent results of the
several teams give credit to its development plans.
The Under 20s, as well as the national men s and
women s teams have all shone recently as they prepare
for their upcoming tournaments.
T&T s women footballers amassed 22 goals among
eight teams under the stewardship of American coach
Randy Waldrum in the just concluded 2014 Women s
Caribbean Cup. Having won the tournament hand-
somely, the Soca Princesses will now square off
against former world champions United States,
Guatemala and Haiti from October 15 in Kansas to
qualify for the 2015 Fifa Women s World Cup to be
held in Canada.
The Under 20 players, many of whom joined the
senior team on September 6 in a one-all draw in the
friendly against Guadeloupe s national team, will be
in a most comfortable position for the Caribbean
Under 20 Championship to be played in T&T from
September 12. Several past players of the T&T Under
17 team, which missed out on qualifying for the 2013
Fifa Under 17 Men s World Cup by one win, are now
in the Under 20 squad and coach Derek King is con-
fident of the experience his charges will bring with
them to this tournament. So from a glance one can
easily get the impression T&T football is way ahead
on the road to recovery, following the slump after
the 2006 Germany World Cup experience.
But there is more to be done. In fact, the perception
that all is well is not what Sheldon Phillips, General
Secretary of the T&T Football Association would say
as he and TTFA President, Raymond Tim Kee are
having their hands filled in keeping their plans on
stream and breaking the curse which has plagued
local football for several years.
Phrases such as "dysfunctional environ-
ment, limited vision, lack of accountability,
and corporate perception that members of
the present executive are Jack Warner s
acolytes," are strong sentiments expressed
by Phillips as part of the struggles hampering
the TTFA from progressively forging ahead.
Phillips mind set is unlike those who, as
past administrators, wore blinkers to world-
view leadership. And indeed he is in a posi-
tion to justifiably harbour such thought
Sheldon Phillips, the son of a former T&T
national goalkeeper Lincoln Phillips, revealed
that one of the main obstacles in effectively
administering football in T&T is the culture
adopted by some leagues which fail to
understand the role of the TTFA (FA) as the
governing body for football. Despite being
incorporated by Act of Parliament No.17 of
1982, a new drive to educate the public is
now being initiated by the FA. One reason
for this, according to the general secretary,
is the large sums of money owed to the FA
by regional associations and member bodies
and the seeming disconnect in establishing
the relationship between member association
obligations and the FA being able to carry
out its functions.
"This is what we have found coming into
office and this is why I have made mention
of operating in a dysfunctional environment
and a limited vision of accountability,"
This Friday the National Under 20 team
begins its quest for supremacy in the
Caribbean Under 20 Championship when
they take on Suriname at the Hasely Craw-
ford Stadium, 7 pm.
