Season 2017 review: Pres, Shiva come good, Fyzo make things bad but God doh like ugly

With another Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) season now in the books, two names seem …


  1. I didn’t know la romaine had a la romaine secondary …wow…

  2. Ahmmm whey the south pics and goal scorers names? Still no respect boy

    • Cleavon, no media house in the country can go to every game–remember there can be as many as eight games on the same evening.
      So we rely on the executive to get us scorers. They have the phone numbers of the match commissioners and school officials involved.
      When it is a Premier Division match and we have the numbers of the coaches or managers, we call around to get the scorers. I often do it myself. In this case I can’t.
      I’d love if the SSFL gave us all the match information we need but we have to work with what we have. I always feel sorry for the young fellahs who missed the chance to see their names in black and white.
      We have NEVER been able to do a full list of goal scorers because there has not been a single season where we got all the scorers from even the Premier Division alone.
      This year, the problem is the St Augustine coaching staff has been inaccessible and the St Benedict’s coaching staff is not very helpful.
      So we would like to get the information to readers… We just can’t sometimes.

    • I will see if I can the name young men scored who for LA Romaine later.

    • Lasana Liburd. Keston Joseph and Isaiah Neptune. The goal scores for LA Romaine

    • Shawn of course now Siparia West will say we are biased. Lol. But there is no winning sometimes. I’m glad to have this.
