“Football is the way out for all of our players who are representing the area of Laventille and surrounding communities with pride and honour. Every time these guys put on the Laventille shirt it gives them a sense of purpose and drive and this is what we are about right now. We have had two positive seasons in the past but this time we really want to go all the way and finish in the top two for a chance to progress to the national Super League,” he added. “The NFA has also done its part to ensure that the league is properly structured and run so far this season.
“Our club owner and supporter Sham Mohammed of the Miscellaneous Group has been offering whatever backing is necessary this season and having him place his support behind Laventille is a major boost for the club. His efforts have helped us tremendously and is a good example of what partners or other corporate citizens can do to help communities like Laventille through football and sport,” Hazelwood said.
Laventille United’s next league encounter is against St Francois Nationals on Friday at Sogren Trace.
