tain and Akil Morris all netted as Defence Force

3-2 and take second spot in the The T&T Football
Association National Super League Group A "Big
Spurs started the match on Sunday at Youth
Camp, Macqueripe, Chaguaramas, a point behind
Defence Force, but quickly stormed into a 2-0 lead
thanks to a double from Jesse Edwards in the second
and 11th minute.
However, Durity started the come-back in the
34th while Fountain (60th) and Morris (67th) got
second-half items to seal the turnaround.
This win saw Defence Force end its campaign

champion Club Sando which won 4-1 over another
second placed hopeful, 1976 FC Phoenix at Canaan
Ground, Bon Accord in Tobago.

After John Brayford and Kim
Bo-Kyung left Cardiff City on Sat-
urday, manager Russell Slade
insisted his top scorer, Kenwyne
Jones, would be staying put.
As the Bluebirds manager looks
to cut the club s wage bill, Jones
remains one of the biggest earners
at the club.
But Jones underlined his value as
he made it 12 goals for the season
and six in his last eight games when
he opened the scoring in the FA
Cup defeat to Reading on Satur-
"We ve had no enquiries for Ken-
wyne," said Slade.
"I am fairly confident that he will
be here at the end of the month.
Obviously if a ginormous offer came
in for him then that would be left
with the owner and chief executive
and the committee, but, from my
point of view, I d like him here.
"He is our leading scorer.
"I ve had assurances. At this stage
there is no kind of mandate to lose
Kenwyne Jones at all."
There have been a number of
high-profile exits as Cardiff seek to
slash their wage bill. But Slade
insisted it was not inevitable the
club s bigger players would be part
of the cull.
"Not all the big earners will go,"
"It depends who that might be
and what position as well. We can
take a hit on a midfielder or a cen-
tre-back. We still have work to do.
"I think it will be a busy week
again for people at the football club.
There are likely to be one or two
more who exit the club, but we will
balance that with one or two com-
ing in as well."
