Our History

The W Connection Story:

Founded in 1986, the W Connection Sports Club could well have been the most organized fete match playing team in the country.

Uniforms, schedules, rules...they had it all, and the members played some pretty good football too! To this day, most of the members are still with the sports club, or are involved in some capacity with the Professional team.

The group travelled throughout the Caribbean, playing against other small clubs in Barbados, Grenada, and St Lucia,  where the club had their first encounter with Stuart Charles-Fevrier. Though Fevrier, and his St. Lucian outfit hammered the Connection team with a 7 - 1 score, the visit left an indelible mark on the minds of the club administrators.

W Connection Football Club Ltd was founded in 1999. The creation of a professional football team had long been a dream for enterprising businessmen, and brothers,  Mr. David, and Patrick John-Williams. When it was announced that W Connection had secured one of the eight spots in then "the Craven A Professional League", they were already ahead of the game.

Within days, head coach and Technical Director Stuart Charles-Fevrier was signed, a deal that would bring the St. Lucia natonal coach back to Trinidad to run the team. Charles, who played club football inTrinidad for 10 years form the mid-seventies until 1986 when he returned to St. Lucia at the request of the Government to coach the National Team.

After several meetings and discussions with then team manager Norris Ferguson, a technical staff was put together.  Assistant coaches Jan Steadman and Leroy Spann were added to the fold, and Errol Lovell was handed the goal keeping reins. To ensure that the players were in top physical condition, physiotherapist Anthony Walcott was included, and equipment manager Michal Cox was responsible for outfitting the players for each practice, and match.

These men, along with many persons behind the scene, and of course the 11 men sporting the club colors on field have proven that W Connection F. C, though born out of a fete match side, was anything but.

In the inagural year, and those that followed, the "Savonetta Boys", as they were affectionately termed because of their home base, have captured many Championship titles, and trophies, and have maintained the level of professionalism befitting of sportsmen, setting new standards, being exemplors, followed by other teams in the region. 

Today, with the changing face of Professional Sports in Trinidad, W Connection has raised the bar, importing, and exporting players, participating internationally in competitions played by some of the best in football, allowing their local talent to gain exposure on football fields across the world, which has opened up many doors; as players that have passed through the Connection camp have gained experience playing with clubs in Asia, Europe, and the MLS.

As the seasons pass and our club grows, we continue to add to our rich history, never forgetting where we came from, as it has given us a greater appreciation for where we are today, and what we have accomplished along the way. Our support base continues to grow, and as long as there is football in Trinidad and Tobago, the "Savonetta Boys" will be there.
