Early last month Trinidad and Tobago won the
Women s Caribbean Cup in fine style. The Women
Soca Warriors compiled 22 goals to share between
their Caribbean counterparts without getting any.
Now the Men s Under 20s, in copping the CFU s
title, will be giving up some of their players to the
senior squad for the October 8, CFU Caribbean Cup
second round at the Alto Boldon stadium.
Today, Fifa issued a bonus funding of US$ 250,000
under the new executive, US $500,000 for licensing
and merchandising, and US$ 1.5 million for the TTFA s
"Goal Project". Next week I shall unravel the latter.
For the time being I am just going beyond the ball.

Since his mother died while he was just a toddler,
his aunt Michelle "Trudy" Corbin brought him up
as her own.
He was always involved in sports and Trudy egged
him on all the way. As a 16-year-old, nobody really
knew about Kadeem Corbin on a national, regional
or international level.
But there are people who, as guardians, invest in
their charges with all they have. Trudy is one.
As the referee blew the final whistle at the Hasely
Crawford stadium in Port-of-Spain two Friday nights
ago, it was recognised by all that this 18-year-old was
a football star in the making: scoring a hat trick against
a formidable Haiti eleven, and earning himself most
outstanding player, most goals by netting five in the
entire tournament and bringing home the title
Caribbean Football Union Under-20 champions.
This result will also see T&T going to Jamaica in
January 2015 for the Concacaf Under-20 World Cup
qualification tournament on a high.
An elated Trudy, who is the political adviser to Diego
Martin Regional Corporation Chairman, Darryl Smith,
boasted to me that she always knew Kadeem would
have proven himself if he got the right opportunity.
And this is what she saw happening with him since
he had been selected on the Under-20 national team.
This new-look Trinidad and Tobago Football Asso-
ciation executive is showing that their experience is
a paradigm for young footballers like Kadeem, and
they have put in place an ingenious concept simply
titled "TTFA Proposal".
I cannot get into all the details concerning what
this is all about in this article as a matter of space,
but my inside knowledge shows this to be pro-team.
Two years ago the Trinidad and Tobago Football
Association was shut down by a group of players from
the 2006 World Cup team. Led by Brent Sancho, they
raided the TTFA s office and seized as much as they
could, blaming Jack Warner for withholding their enti-
Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar listened to
the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association, who
made their own contribution of $1.7 million and paid
the disgruntled former soca warriors the remaining
$1.3 million of a $3 million settlement, which was one
of the first initiatives launched by TTFA president
Raymond Tim Kee.
There was no hosting of tournaments in Trinidad
and Tobago. Fifa had threatened to withhold all funding
following Haiti s claim that they did not get their
Corbin comes a long way
MOHALI---Jonathan Carter says he will be targeting
another big score in Barbados Tridents final game
of the Champions League Twenty20 on Tuesday, as
he looks to get his hand on the Golden Bat.
Despite Tridents poor showing in the tournament,
the left-hander has been in excellent form with 173
runs from three innings, including a superb unbeaten
111 not out against Cape Cobras last week.
The Golden Bat is awarded to the batsman with
the highest aggregate. Carter followed up his century
with a top score of 42 on Sunday as Tridents lost their
third straight game by six wickets, to bow out of con-
tention in the tournament.
"I was enjoying [the innings]. I love playing in India.
I was trying to target the boundaries and not play
across or anything like that so," Carter said.
"It has been a nice experience so far; there is still
one more game to go and I am just hoping to tip it
for the Golden Bat."
However, he will have to surpass Northern Districts
Kane Williamson who has 243 runs and Hobart Hur-
ricanes 188 runs, both of whom are ahead of him in
Carter eyeing more runs
with Golden Bat in mind
