T&T and North East Stars central defender
Kareem Moses is set to pick up a one year contract
with North American Soccer League (NASL) club
FC Edmonton for the 2014 season.
"He has signed for one year and once they (Edmonton)
like what they see in the season, they would sign him
further," said Stars head coach Angus Eve.
The NASL is the second tier of the US soccer pyramid,
behind the Major League Soccer (MLS) and in front of
the United Soccer League Professional Division (USL Pro),
while FC Edmonton are only heading into their fourth
season of professional football when the season kicks off
in April. Moses, 23, who will jet off to Canada in early
February, said, "It is every player s dream to play abroad...
to see other places and make your family proud. So I m
"It s a great step coming from the Pro League and going
to the next level, which will help me develop my skills
and level of thinking towards reaching the highest level
of the game. That s most important to me, and I m also
hoping that this move might even help me get a recall
to the national team, being an international (based) player."
Moses, who represented T&T at youth and Under-23
levels before making the senior team debut in 2012, played
his last North East Stars match in December and will not
be used this month, as Eve prepares to do without the
talented defender. However, Moses has been training reg-
ularly with the Sangre Grande club and will continue
doing so until his move in February to maintain his physical
fitness level. "We are hoping that once he plays in that
league (NASL) and get that sort of exposure; teams in the
MLS would look at him and hopefully want to sign him,"
said Eve. "We tend to try and be specific where we send
players, unlike a lot of other teams who send a lot of
players on trials and they come back because they don t
get through [something Eve believes can negatively affect
the player,s CV]," said the former T&T U23 head coach
and ex-T&T international.
"We had Sheldon Bateau (Belgium/KV Mechelen) out
(in 2012) and Cornell Glen (India/ Shillong Lajong FC)
out (in 2013) and we try to send the older players to those
Asian countries, and send the younger players to North
America and hopefully Europe. We deal specifically that
way, so that when we send a player, he is not just bouncing
around from trial to trial to trial but going to specific
places for specific reasons."
Earlier this month, Stars forward Anthony Wolfe joined
India s reigning I-League champions Churchill Brothers
SC for the remainder of the 2013-2014 season, following
a successful trial. Wolfe, 30, is now the third T&T 2006
World Cup player to ever play in India after Cyd Gray
(Pune FC---2008) and Densill Theobald (Dempo FC---
2011-2012). Eve signed San Juan Jabloteh forward Lemuel
Lyons during the December/January transfer window as
a quick replacement for Wolfe, but is yet to fill the void
being left by Moses. "It s a massive loss for us and that s
why I m looking for a stopper now," said the North East
Moses set to
join Canada's FC
