Finland-based defender Aubrey David turned out
to be one of the key performers for T&T at the
Caribbean Cup Finals in Montego Bay in Jamaica.
The former national Under-17 and U-20 player
was a starter in Stephen Hart s team for three of the
matches during the championship after missing out
on the previous semi-final stage in T&T.
Playing with FF Jaro in the Finnish top flight,
David, who also played for Guyana at the senior level,
said he owed his progress to hard work and self-
"It was a decent tournament and I think we
deserved every bit of success we achieved in getting
to the final. Unfortunately the result didn t go out
way but we fought till the end and that s the best
one can hope for," David said.
"I think my game has seen some improvements
and my transition from playing in Trinidad to Europe
has played a big part in my ability to perform on the
international stage. I can only hope to continue devel-
oping and improving."
David will return to the Caledonia AIA line-up
but hopes to move back to Europe next season.
"I will be back at Caledonia but I m hoping another
opportunity comes up when the transfer window
reopens in January. I feel my game is good enough
to keep a spot on the national team and of course
I want to play at a high club level because it s definitely
helping me. I can t stay relaxed and think my place
is fixed on any team. I have to keep delivering every
Molino takes topscorer award
National team forward Kevin Molino received the
top scorer award at the Caribbean Cup Finals on
Tuesday night after finishing the tournament with
three goals. He was tied with Jamaica s Darren Mat-
tocks and Haiti s Kervens Belfort.
Molino was called up to the stage to receive the
trophy during the post-game awards ceremony when
Mattocks unceremoniously made his way on stage
and relieved Molino of the trophy shortly after the
Orlando City midfielder collected it. The awkward
situation was not taken lightly by a couple CFU offi-
cials as well as the Haiti contingent on hand at the
Molino however saw the lighter side to it.
"To me it s no problem if he wanted to rush to
collect the trophy. It s just a trophy anyways but I m
grateful to have won the award itself because of me
scoring goals at a tournament like this was important,
especially as it meant getting my country to the final
and the Concacaf Gold Cup," said Molino who also
scored four goals in the previous semi-final round
and now has 11 goals in 29 senior international appear-
Commenting on the team s performance, Molino
added, "We didn t get it right in the final but we
came a long way. Playing Jamaica at home was tough
because there was a lot at stake and the Jamaicans
are a tough bunch in their backyard. But we are
building and the team is progressing well. I think we
can have a strong team for the Gold Cup and the
World Cup qualifiers," he added.
