W Connection faces Central Sharks in rescheduled fixture

EPL Properties Ltd

Defending Digicel Pro League champions DirecTV W Connection will hope to shake off a lacklustre start to its 2012/13 tomorrow on 6 November 2012 when the “Savonetta Boys” host rookies Central FC in a rescheduled fixture from 6 pm at the Mannie Ramjohn Stadium, Marabella.

Connection has mustered just two goals from open play after five outings in domestic competition so far this season. Coach Stuart Charles-Fevrier hopes that 20-year-old attacker Shahdon Winchester will finally ditch the “promising” tag and establish himself as a force this year.

Winchester’s lone Pro League goal thus far came in a 2-1 comeback win over St Ann’s Rangers on 26 October 2012. He would hope to get among the goals tomorrow.

The Central “Sharks” are no pushovers. They can be careless though. Six of the seven goals conceded by coach Graham Rix’s men have come in two of their four matches.

The English coach would hope the newcomers get it right for this fixture or Central custodian Marvin Phillip, a former Connection employee, is likely to be very busy.

Central’s home debut at the Ato Boldon Stadium on Saturday 3 November 2012 ended in a 3-2 loss to Rangers, which was not the best introduction for the team’s new fans.

Former Presentation College Chaguanas student Brad Bachu, one of the two 2012 President’s Medal winners, turned out to support the Sharks and was presented with a Central FC shirt at halftime by another Presentation alumnus and Trinidad and Tobago Under-20 World Cup defender Akeem Adams.

The 19-year-old Bachu, who lives in Felicity, Chaguanas, represented Trinidad and Tobago at table tennis in the Pan American Games and offered some advice for the Pro League team.

“Never compete with other persons,” he said. “Compete against yourself. Because once you begin to compete with others, you begin to limit yourself.”

Tomorrow’s fixture offers Central a chance to put Bachu’s word to practice. Connection will have other ideas.
