We recently visitied Trinidad and Tobago as guests of, the Trinidad and Tobago Government, Police Department and Terry Fenwick of the Football Factory.
During our trip we met with a number of very influentional people including, Caroline Alcock – the Deputy British High Commisioner, David Williams – Chairman of the T&T Football Association, Douglas Camacho – Ministry of Sport, Gary Griffith – Police Chief Commissioner, Dennis Lawrence – National Team Coach and many others. The purpose of the visit was to create strong links with the Island and the UK to provide young boys and girls the opportiunity to come to the UK on our International Football Scholarship (see link) https://youtu.be/EctJMLVJq64
Also as part of the trip, we had a number of media engagements, including:
The Morning Addition on TV6
Morning Brew on CNC3
Neil Saxton of Catalyst4 PSM
Martin Scott of Improtech Soccer
Terry Fenwick of The Football Factory
Our initial outcome was a commitment to bring the first group of 20 scholars to start the International Programme in September 2019. The selection trials have already began on the Island.
We have also been invited back in March 2019 to bring our Catalyst Academy team to play a game during the opening of the new Trinidad and Tobago ‘Home of Football’ (see video)
