When Round 1 action in the Caribbean Football Union Club Championships 2015 kicked off on Wednesday last at the Guyana national Stadium, Providence, it was any body’s guess as to the team that would have made it to the next round.
As it has turned out, host team Alpha United broke a five game losing streak to Inter Moengotapoe by whipping the Surinamese club 3-0 in the opening to set up a grand showdown with Trinidad and Tobago’s Central FC which recorded their first win in their debut game at this level, a 2-0 win over Inter Moengotapoe on Friday evening.
The win for each team sets up a mouth-watering final game today with Alpha just needing a draw to advance. But while a draw would be good, Head Coach of Alpha, Wayne ‘Wiggy’ Dover would be leaving no stone unturned in going for a win that would hand them a berth in the next round.
Central FC, a young Pro League side in Trinidad and Tobago are on the verge of winning that league which also sees the likes of Direct TV W. Connection and Neal and Massey Caledonia AIA competing.
The task for Alpha would not be easy but Dover says he is confident that his boys led by the experienced Captain, Gregory ‘Jackie Chan’ Richardson, Grenadian Kithson Bain, Panamanian Manuel Vargas, Jamaican Kirk Duckworth, Kris Camacho and goalkeeper Ronson Williams can pull things through and produce a win for them.
Central FC’s Head Coach, an experienced veteran, Terry Fenwick said that he was aware of the prowess of the home team and believes that today’s game would be a very good one.
Central will bank on the experience of T&T National goalie Jan-Michael Williams, Captain Paul Leston, Willis Plaza, Nathaniel Garcia, John Elton, Benjamin Akeem, Oliver Martin, Jason Marcano and others to see them through to the semifinals.
An intriguing game between two good sides is in the making and fans are encouraged to come out and witness two of the better teams in the Caribbean going against each other.
