Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : May 18th 2013 Contents Kristan Kallicharan continued his
brilliant form with the bat for the
East Zone in the BGTT Under-15
InterZone competition, but it was
only enough for his team to earn a
draw against North at Honeymoon
Kallicharan recently broke Brian
Lara's Secondary School Cricket League
record of 168 when he recently made
194 for Vishnu Boys in a 197-run win
over Carapichaima East. In the East
Zone's first innings, Kallicharan struck
108 to carry East to 218/3 in their 30
overs. He was assisted by Keegan Sim-
mons and Sachin Seecharan, who made
38 and 36, respectively. In reply, North
could only muster 90/8, giving East
a huge lead of 128 runs on first innings.
In the second innings, Kallicharan
was at it again, this time scoring 80
in his team's 241/4 in 45 overs. He was
ably supported by Nathaniel McDavid
(47), while Kallis Romain took 2/30.
This meant North had an almost
impossible task of making 370 runs in
45 overs for victory. North decided to
play for the draw, and they succeeded,
crawling to 71/6 at the close.

Talparo RC girls then made it a complete sweep

Trinidad Northern standout Ryan Frederick will
skipper T&T s 24-person 15s rugby team, which is
set to challenge for the North America Caribbean
Rugby Association (NACRA) Men s Rugby Cham-
pionship against familiar opposition in Barbados
and Guyana in the South Zone round-robin on Sat-
urday and June 1, respectively.
T&T will take on Barbados at the Garrison Savannah
next Saturday from 4 pm, before returning the fol-
lowing day to begin preparation for its all-important
clash with arch rival Guyana.
Frederick takes over from clubmate Jonathan
O'Connor, who served in T&T's big win against Bar-
bados and heavy loss against Guyana just over a year
ago and which saw the Calypso Warriors out of con-
tention for the IRB 2015 World Cup.
The T&T team, however, will be seeking to make
amends by taking two positive results, even with the
inclusion of five senior 15s debutants. Tobago RFC's
Melville Eastman and Kwain Manswell were selected,
along with Royalians duo Trizene McLean and Kereem
Figaro and Caribs' Anthony Lopez and Shaquille Tull.
Chairman of selectors and the team's manager
Curtis Nero will make the trip along with head coach
Larry Mendez, assistant coach Dale Trotman and
physiotherapist Derek Ashby-Williams.
The last time T&T met Barbados was at St Mary's
College Ground, Serpentine Road, last May, and the
host took away a convincing 32-3 win. However, only
days later, T&T took the trip to Guyana and was
T&T, Barbados and Guyana will vie for the top

one match played and won. It narrowly defeated the
Cayman Islands 9-7.
Concacaf was able to provide the
T&T Football Federation (TTFF) with
money to settle the seven-year court
dispute with regards to rewarding 13
members of the Soca Warriors 2006
Germany Fifa World squad from
unclaimed commercial and broadcast
revenue owed to the local federation
for the 2014 Fifa World Cup cycle.
This was stated in a press release
sent to the media yesterday which
noted the local federation had to field
a number of questions regarding the
source of the funding after a Trinidad
Guardian report on Friday stated it
came via the help of Concacaf.
The release went on to add that soon
after Raymond Tim Kee was appointed
as president of the TTFF in December,
the availability of the funds was
brought to his attention.
Upon recognising this, and in keep-
ing with his commitment to satisfy
the outstanding obligation to the 13
players, it was determined that applying
these funds to the emerging settlement
discussions was a just and reasonable
The release noted that further infor-
mation regarding the settlement will
be disclosed at a press conference to
be held at the VIP Lounge, Hasely
Crawford Stadium, Mucurapo, on
Monday from 11 am.
At this press conference, it is expect-
ed that former Soca Warriors goal-
keeper and current ESPN soccer analyst
Shaka Hislop will be present and along
with former national defender Brent
Sancho will speak on behalf of the
On Thursday, when questioned by
the Trinidad Guardian, Tim Kee said
that Concacaf played a key role in help-
ing the local federation source the funds
to settle the dispute.
