Britto, Yohance and Shahdon named in 24-man Warriors training squad to face Grenada

Honduras-based attacker Jerrel Britto and the Mexico-based trio of defender Yohance Marshall, midfielder Jomal Williams and forward Shahdon Winchester were the only overseas-based players named in a 24-man training squad to face Grenada next Saturday at St George’s.

The friendly outing is the only confirmed game at present before the Trinidad and Tobago National Senior Team face the United States and Costa Rica in two crucial Russia 2018 World Cup qualifiers on 8 and 13 June respectively.

Soca Warriors head coach Dennis Lawrence said the Grenada trip will allow him to give playing time to his Pro League players who are in their off-season as well as to assess some new talent. Britto is uncapped at senior international level while neither Winchester nor Marshall have trained with the Warriors since Lawrence took up his post.

“It’s a good opportunity for myself and the coaching staff to have a further look at the players who are on the fringe of World Cup team selection,” Lawrence told the TTFA Media, “also including those who were involved in the past two qualifying matches.”

The only local-based absentee from the Warriors team that faced Panama and Mexico is central defender Daneil Cyrus, who is a free agent at present.

However, Lawrence has added the Central FC trio of defenders Keston George, Seon Power and Taryk Sampson to his training squad along with former “Couva Sharks” forward Marcus Joseph and W Connection midfielder Kevon Goddard.

Veteran goalkeepers Jan-Michael Williams and Marvin Phillip, who were listed as North East Stars and Point Fortin Civic employees respectively, and W Connection midfielder Hughtun Hector will add know-how to a relatively inexperienced team.

  1. I have to say Lawrence have a genuine direction in terms of his work. It would have been nice if he and Hartie could have worked together.

  2. Good evening.. Is game online anywhere?

  3. So wha is de scene with Cyrus, he on trial or something? Or Lawrence just want to see other people?

  4. Jonathan Glen might not to send in his CV though. Him, Ataulla Guerra and Neveal Hackshaw can contribute too once they are on song.

  5. No Nathaniel Garcia again. Hmmm. Would be interested in understanding local team representation in this squad. How many each from Central, W, Jabloteh, etc.

  6. Big up Lobo same way! Shocked but happy

  7. Cyrus must be in discussions with a club or something. Every coach always selects Cyrus.

  8. Whatever opportunities given, must be grabbed with all within you…. Jerrel Bru Britto, this is your opportunity….. All the best to the entire team….

  9. Simone, as Brent said, you must be a happy man today. All but Dwayne James.

  10. Simone must be really happy… both players he’s been lobbying for got called into the squad

  11. Big chance for Yohance Marshall to get into the June qualifier squad .
