The two-time Trinidad and Tobago professional football champions have also forged a relationship with Jamaican club Harbour View and currently have four Jamaican players in their squad.
The Jamaicans-Robert Scarlette, a left side midfielder; 19-year-old Lovell Palmer; Oneil Thompson, a defensive midfielder; and midfielder/striker Jermaine Hue-arrived in Trinidad last week and all had some playing time in Connection's 1-0 loss to Starworld Strikers on Wednesday.

Yesterday, Connection owner David John-Williams confirmed that the affable Fevrier has returned to his former Savonetta base, where he forged a successful partnership with John-Williams five years ago, which resulted in a league and FA Cup double, a year after the former fete match team entered the pro competition. Charles has assumed control over all of W Connection's teams as part of a technical staff that also includes former players Reynold Carrington and Leonson Lewis.
Carrington, captain of the team which finished runners-up to CL Financial San Juan Jabloteh in last year's T&T Pro League, has replaced Leroy Spann as coach of the senior squad.
"Stuart Charles helped to form W Connection and will always have a place at this club," John-Williams told the Express.
As for the Jamaicans, the W Connection owner said they are part of an exchange programme with Harbour View, whose season begins in November.
In the interim, the quartet have the opportunity to gain employment and also give the young and re-building Connection team a boost. They will compensate for Connection's loss of six senior players and junior 15 year old striker Aaron Downing, who have signed a professional contracts with Scottish club Falkirk. Midfielder Silvio Spann is due off on June 11 for pre-season training with Dinamo Zagreb of Croatia, while defender Kenwyne Jones starts with England's Southampton on July 4.
Connection are also in the process of negotiating a contract extension for Ronaldo Viana and Gefferson Goulart to return to FC Zeleznik. Connection had loaned the Brazilians to the Yugoslavian club.
After finishing third to Red Star Belgrade and Partisan Belgrade in their local league, Zeleznik have now qualified for European competition and have sought an extension to the loan deal involving the two Brazilians, who are now on vacation in Brazil. Goalie Kelvin Jack and Arnold Dwarika are also out on loan to foreign clubs.
Downing is also due to leave next month to begin pre-season training with First Division club Falkirk in Scotland. Downing, scorer of 35 goals in the 2003 T&T Pro League under-17 division, has graduated to Connection's Under-20 team and has also been recently drafted into the T&T under-20 team.
The return of Fevrier and the addition of the Jamaicans give Connection's owner the confidence that his team can recapture the Pro League title.
"It is very early days yet and we are just four points away from the leaders. Even if Jabloteh should win their outstanding match against Tobago, we still have 20 games to win the league. We have not pressed the panic button. Even if we have a young team, I always see us as a seasoned professional outfit and I feel confident that we have the ability to win the league," said John-Williams.
