Guyanese national striker Nigel ‘Powers’ Codrington and left side defender Walter ‘Boyd’ Moore scored on either side of the half to give Neal & Massy Caledonia AIA a 2-1 victory over the previously unbeaten CLICO Jabloteh in the T&T Pro League at the Hasley Crawford Stadium.
Moore was elevated to left midfield to make way for Guyana’s National U-23 player Kester Jacobs who started for Caledonia in the left back position.
Showing clinical accuracy Moore finished off a six pass move after receiving a pass from Vincentian Kendal Velox inside the Jabloteh box. His first time shot beat goalkeeper Cleon John to give Caledonia a 1-0 first half lead. John had denied Moore two minutes earlier pushing his blistering 30 meter drive over the bar.
Codrington sealed the game for Caledonia 15 minutes into the second half running on to a perfect through pass from T&T’s World Cup midfielder Densill Theobald. Codrington now has 7 goals in the Pro League and is the joint top scorer in the Trinidad league with Antiguan striker Peter Byers. Another Jaguar, Collie Hercules has 6 goals in the League.
Jabloteh pulled one back with 8 minutes to go through Antiguan striker Gayson Gregory.
Neal & Massy Caledonia run by Guyana’s technical director Jamaal Shabazz sported 5 Guyana national players in their line up; Charles Pollard who captains Caledonia, defenders Howard Lowe and Jacobs, Moore and striker Codrington.
Former Pele midfielder Konata Manning came on as a second half substitute while another National U-23 player Brion Baker was out due to injury.
Caledonia is the first team to beat the previously unbeaten Jabloteh in League competition this season.
Also in winners’ row last week was goalkeeper Andrew Durant as his team North East Stars shut out Mau Pau 2-0.
Several other Guyana players were in action on Tuesday last. Tobago United looking more like Top XX of Linden went down 2-0 to St. Ann’s Rangers at the Larry Gomes Stadium.
National goalkeeper Richard Reynolds, Carey Harris, Quacy Johnson, Selwyn Isaacs and Hercules were in the Tobago line up.
Former Pele striker Gregory “Jackie Chan” Richardson is still on the injured list at Joe Public the club owned by FIFA Vice President Jack Warner. Chan, recovering from a knee injury watched from the stands as Joe Public went down 1-0 to W- Connection at the Marvin Lee Stadium.
He was expected to return to the Joe Public line on the weekend.
