"Whatever the thought process
behind all of this is (loan move),
it's not down to me. In a couple
of months or about three months,
you'll probably find out what's the
next step and, hopefully, it's a step
in the right direction, whichever
direction it is," Jones said.
"I have seen and been through
quite a lot in football and this one
was a bit surprising," he said.
"I got a call on Thursday at a
quarter-past-eight talking about
interest. I was like, with seven
games to go, I don't really see the
sense in it. By a quarter-to-nine,
it was finished. Whatever tran-

Miguel Ross, the younger brother
of the late Marvin Lee, is now carrying
on his brother s legacy and is hoping
to represent this country on the inter-
Marvin, the former captain of the
T&T Under-20 team, passed away in
March 2003, almost two years after
sustaining head and neck injuries in a
collision with Landon Donovan during
a Concacaf U-20 World Cup qualifier
at the Marvin Lee Stadium in Macoya.
He was left paralysed after the incident
and succumbed to illness as a result of
his weakened state.
Miguel was nine years old at the
time. Now he is at West Chester Uni-
versity in the United States, a Division
II that competes in the Pennsylvania
State Athletic Conference (PSAC). He
was the second topscorer with 11 goals
in 2013 and in 2014 was named to the
Athletic Conference's All Star second
His preferred position is left midfield
or forward. And his goal---to keep his
brother's spirit alive.
"My older brother had been a major
influence in my life. Growing up with
someone that was extremely talented
and driven made me wanted to excel
more in the sport of soccer. My brother
and I shared the same love and passion
for the beautiful game. We always joked
about me growing up to be better than
him," said Ross who began playing at
age nine at the Joe Public coaching
clinic before moving to Creek Sports
and Cultural Club and 1st Santa Rosa
FC's U-17 team.
Talking about his experience thus far
in the US, Ross spoke about the dif-
"The experience in the US has been
very enlightening. I have met new peo-
ple and experienced new things. The
soccer here is so different compared to
back home it's a lot more physical com-
pared to how it was when I left Trinidad
a few years ago. The schooling is also
different compared to back home, but
overall it has been a great experience
and I'm very grateful that I have been
blessed with these new experiences."
Now Ross, like his deceased brother,
wants to represent the "Red, White and
Black" and is eyeing a try out with the
national men's Olympic team currently
preparing under Zoran Vranes.
"My family, my idol and my country
are what inspire me the most," Ross
said. "My country inspires me to excel.
I want to put my country on the map.
I want to show the soccer world that
T&T can be a forced to be reckoned
with. We have the talent and the ability
to be country that other teams are fear-
ful to play against."
The drive to accomplish his goals
stems from above for this youngster.
"As an older brother Marvin
demanded that I must be better than
him, in every aspect of the game. Every
time I put my cleats on and hit the
soccer field I feel like my brother is
looking down at me saying, Well done
little bro, keep doing your thing and
accomplish your dreams and goal.' This
thought alone makes me work harder
to accomplish my goals," Ross said.
Cardiff's big benefit from
Jones Bournemouth move
T&T's Kenwyne Jones described his
move to Bournemouth as "bizarre" and
has promised that his future will be
properly settled in the next two to three
But now that Bournemouth have
sealed promotion to the Premiership,
it's the owners that are enjoying the
benefits of the player's loan move from
Cardiff earned a huge £250,000
bonus thanks to Bournemouth's pro-
motion The windfall is part of the loan
deal that saw Cardiff striker Kenwyne
Jones controversially move to the Cher-
ries in January.
That deal has now netted the Blue-
birds an impressive £600,000 in total
after Bournemouth also paid an initial
£350,000 loan fee. The newly-pro-
moted club has also paid all of Jones'
substantial wages during his stay.
Jones has only played a total of 41
in action for
his US team.
