Soca Warriors utility player Joevin
Jones move to US Major Major
League Soccer s Chicago Fire has been
given the full backing of his former
club coach, St Lucian Stuart Charles-
Fevrier and Soca Warriors boss
In recent years both coaches have
played key roles, at club and interna-
tional level, to help mould Jones to this
current stage in his football life and
speaking to wconnectionfc.com both
gentlemen gave their perspectives on
his imminent transfer.
With the Soca Warriors continuing
to build towards the 2018 World Cup
qualifiers, Hart is particularly pleased
that the 23-year-old Jones, the son of
former Strike Squad defender Kelvin
Jones will soon be playing in a morec-
"Joevin moving to Chicago Fire is a
very positive move. I spoke to the coach
Frank Yallop (Chicago Fire) about Joevin
and told him he is a exciting prospect,
who has the ability to play several posi-
tions, " Hart said.
"Joevin needs to be in an environ-
ment that challenges him daily for
selection. This compounded by a com-
petitive league season, a hectic travel
schedule and games which require full
concentration, will prove beneficial to
Joevin s overall development, mentally,
physically and tactically."
When mid-fielder Hughton Hector
left W Connection in 2011 and later
Shahdon Winchester, Charles-Fevrier
and the "Savonetta Boys" faced a
dilemma: how to score goals.
His decision to move Jones from his
natural left wing-back position into
mid-field, proved to be the antidote
as W Connection won the Digicel Pro
League twice in the last three seasons.
Such is his versatility, Charles-Fevrier
can only see the son of former strike
squad defender Kelvin Jones getting
"I m always pleased when one of
our players goes abroad, since it will
obviously improve their lives" said
Charles-Fevrier."I ve generally
impressed upon Joevin and all the club s
players to aim high and be ambitions.
Most players have 10-15 year careers,
some 20 if they are exceptional and
take care of themselves.
"We (W Connection) won two
championships with Joevin, after Hec-
tor and Winchester left and I made
the decision to test the offensive qual-
ities he showed at left wing-back, in
"He had a huge effect as everyone
knows and I personally believe that
once he works on a few additional areas
of his game - he has the ability to play
for a real big club one day."
Relaxing with his brother Alvin Jones
and comrades in Carenage who are all
excited about his latest football journey,
Joevin noted that he is excited about
joining the MLS that is getting bigger
every year, and wants to make the
Jones family proud.
