T&T Women’s Team set for friendlies against Curaçao and Aruba

The Trinidad and Tobago Women’s National Senior Team will resume international engagements in Curaçao later this month, as they compete in the three-nation Queen’s Friendly Tournament with Aruba and the host nation.

The Women Soca Warriors will face Aruba on Wednesday 29 May and Sunday 2 June and tackle Curaçao on Thursday 30 May and Monday 3 June—for a total of four games in six days.

The Trinidad and Tobago team will be led by head coach Richard Hood and assisted by TTFA director of youth football and Women’s U-17 National Team head coach Rajesh Latchoo.

Hood’s travel party, according to a TTFA press release, will “feature a developmental team with a mixture of TTFA High Performance Programme and Senior players”.

“Several players who would comprise this developmental team have been playing for their respective teams in the Republic Bank National Youth Football League (RBNYFL),” stated the TTFA Media, “and weekly TTFA High Performance Programme training”.

There are no Concacaf Women’s competitions this year, so it is up to member associations to take responsibility for their own activities.
