W Connection are probably the most disappointed club in the TT Pro League following their runners-up finish in the League Championship and Friday’s Toyota Classic exit.

Written By: Randy Bando

This by no means can’t be compared with that of the results of Tobago United and Ma Pau Sc this season however the 2008 First Citizens Cup winners believes that they have underachieved.

“We let it slip away and that’s disappointing,” said W Connection captain Elijah Joseph of St Lucia on his team’s League performance.

W Connection fell short by two points after needing only a victory against eventual winners CLICO San Juan Jabloteh two Saturdays ago.

“It was hard to accept the League seeing where we were…once leading the standings and our overall performance this season. We worked hard this season.”

Following their League performance finishing in second W Connection had their targets on the Toyota Classic and FA Trophy competitions to add to their 2008 trophy haul—one being an undesired amount.

But it wasn’t the Savonnetta Boys lucky day on Friday night falling short 2-1 against North East Stars at the Mannie Ramjohn Stadium.

Joseph continued, “I know we can’t win everything but its always disappointing. We failed to make the semifinals of the Toyota (Classic) and that’s hard to accept.”

Joseph admitted that the season compact with a lot of games took a harsh toll on teams but believes that everyone played under the same conditions.

“It was tough for us,” he said. “But sometimes in life you have to go through things the hard way. It really affected us physically and mentally just as it did with everyone.”

During the 2008 season the Savonnetta Boys had to minus key players Marvin Phillip in goal, midfielder Clyde Leon and forward Andre Toussaint due to national duty with the Trinidad and Tobago squad.

However the W Connection is looking ahead at the last chance of a second title this season.

W Connection will face Angostura 1976 Phoenix on Wednesday night at the Marvin Lee Stadium in the quarterfinals of the 2008 FA Trophy competition.

“We will be giving it our best,” assured the W Connection player of nine years. “We will be focusing on reaching the final and then giving our best to win the title,” he ended.
