Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : January 30th 2014 Contents Some 80 kids from the Blan-
chisseuse community came out from
as early as 9 am on Saturday to par-
ticipate in the TTFA/OneWorldFutbol
Youth Football Community clinic at
the Blanchisseuse Secondary School
President Anthony Carmona was wel-
comed by T&T Football Association
(TTFA) president Raymond Tim Kee
and they both joined the kids in singing
the national anthem at the start. Each
kid received playing gear and the inde-
structible football was used during the
clinic, overseen by TTFA technical direc-
tor Anton Corneal and assistants
Muhammad Isa, Marlon Charles,
Desiree-Ann Sargeant, Maylee Johnson
and Anique Walker.
"I really enjoyed this clinic. I was
taught about football and how to develop
my skills. It was a fun day for all of us
and most importantly I go to do it with
my classmates," said 10-year-old par-
ticipant Faith Ramkissoon.
Tim Kee stressed the need for the
TTFA to continue spreading the game
"This is such an important under-
taking by the association. We intend to
take the game to the kids in the various
communities and offer them an oppor-
tunity to learn more about the sport, to
have fun, to engage in healthy activities
and perhaps offer our national scouts
and coaches some more options in the
future," Tim Kee said.
"And while it s about having the kids
have fun while playing, there is also a
serious side to it because they are being
taught discipline and skill. This is all
tied into the entire exercise and I am
really looking forward to the various
camps that will take place in the weeks
Partnering the TTFA in this venture
is Coca Cola, Lifestyle Motors, TSTT
and BG T&T.
Latapy keen on new role in Scotland
Former national player and head coach
Russell Latapy has been given a lead
responsibility at Scottish Premier League
side Inverness Caledonian Thistle. And
that is to develop an entertaining style
of play for the club.
And there s no man more certain of
Latapy s capabilities that Inverness head
coach John Hughes who played with
the "Little Magician" during his days
at Hibernian. Hughes also visited T&T
in 2000 with Hibs.
"The boys are quite upbeat and in
good spirits," said Latapy. "They re qui-
etly confident that they re going to go
out and do their best, so hopefully we
can go and get a result.
"It s difficult to say exactly what I m
going to bring, but my role is assisting
in doing whatever I can to make the
players better and ensure we get result."
"When you look at the club and what
it has achieved over the years, it s a priv-
ilege for me to be part of what is hap-
pening, to have the opportunity to work
with John again," said Latapy.
"Basically, whatever is needed is what
I ll be prepared to do.
"But everything takes time. First and
foremost, we have to get results because
football matches are about winning."

Wolfe lined up for the defending I-
League championship their 3-1 win over
Sporting Club de Goa in the Cup final
on the weekend.
"I am pretty happy that we won the
Federation Cup. We were going into the
Federation Cup more as underdogs
because we are at the bottom of the
table in league. I think it s a great
achievement for the club, players and
for the supporters as well," Wolfe told
the Indian press.
"It encourages the supporters to come
watch the team when the team play the
next home game and stuff but I think
it s more of a motivational step for us
in the I-League where we aim to come
from the bottom of the table to at least
finish fifth-or-sixth at the end of the
season. So I think winning this cup was
very, very important for us as players.
I think we trained hard and responded
on the field and no one disrespected
each other," said Wolfe, who said he was
influenced by Cornell Glen to move to
India. Glen is also having an outstanding
season for Indian club Shillong Lajong.
Wolfe mentioned that he has been
made to feel at home since joining the
club and is enjoying life with his new

Argentina and Iran.
"I want to be back in the squad
for sure for those two games. It s
going to be a great experience I
will not want to miss out. Hope-
fully I m injury free at the time
when the squad is being selected
and I hope we can go with the best
available squad. Those games will
be very, very big for our country,"
The 23-year-old from Carenage,
signed a four-year deal with Orlan-

him at the club as they head into
the MLS in 2015.

possible team ready for two friend-
