Powerhouse W Connection may have fallen short of the 2008 League Championship by two points behind eventual winners CLICO San Juan Jabloteh but the club still believes that they are best in the League.

Written By: Randy Bando

W Connection, three-time winners of the League Championship as a professional club has a lot of reasons to believe so. However only one League Championship was won during the TT Pro League while two came during the Professional Football League(PFL).

Connection and Jabloteh played to a thrilling goalless draw in their final match of the season at the Ato Boldon Stadium, Couva on Saturday as the Savonnetta Boys extended their unbeaten run.

A win on Saturday would have hurdled the Savonnetta Boys over leaders Jabloteh by one point to grab the title, however the goalless finish went in favour of the Terry Fenwick coached side to preserve their two point advantage and take home the 2008 League Championship and the Lucozade Sport Big Six trophy in the process.

“We were the best team this season and we’re obviously disappointed,” said W Connection St Lucian born coach, Stuart Charles Fevrier following the match.

“We have been the most consistent team in the League this season. We have gone 26 matches unbeaten and we need to win (on Saturday) and we didn’t.”

Fevrier had the stats right. W Connection had a brilliant run throughout the season with their last defeat coming way back in Round One in a 1-0 loss against Jabloteh thanks to a late strike by defender Karlon Murray.

The Savonnetta Boys unbeaten run of 26 matches included their 2006 First Citizens Cup knockout glory.

“Our players were definitely a bit tired (against Jabloteh) but that’s how the game is sometimes and we have to accept it,” continued Fevrier.

“We also need to give credit to Jabloteh for the fight. They have also done well this season and we must commend them. Our players gave a good account for themselves throughout the League and must be commended for this as well.”

However the W Connection coach, with the never say die attitude, will be attempting to keep his players’ heads up and target two upcoming knockout titles—Toyota Classic and FA Trophy—and a very successful 2009.

“We have to now look ahead. We can’t attempt to sit down and cry over our loss. We are a club that have been very fortunate over the years. We have won three League titles and runners-up six times. So we now have to go back to the drawing board and focus on next season to come out again and try to win the League again.”

“We are a club that we take every competition very serious. We will be putting the past behind us and be ready for the (Toyota Classic and FA Trophy) two knockout competitions. We have won these competitions already and we are hoping to do what people expect from W Connection and win these titles,” said the longstanding W Connection coach.
