League Team Of The Week
The second edition of Premier League Team Of The Week following a rigorous week of matches played on Sunday, March 9, Wednesday, March 12, Thursday, March 13, and Saturday, March 15.
Coach: Tyrone Wilkie (Brittons Hill)
Goalkeeper: Tennyson Mings (Brittons Hill) – Brittons Hill’s No.2 goalkeeper had very little to do, but when called upon performed well to ensure his first Premiership clean sheet.
Right back: Akeem Browne (BDFSP) – The versatile defender turned in another energetic display, working hard on both sides of the ball especially on the attacking front.
Left back: Omar Archer (Brittons Hill) – An assist in week one and a goal in week two earns the roving wing back a spot on the team for the second successive week.
Centre back: Barry Skeete (Paradise) – Despite two losses in the opening game, Skeete was a pillar at the back, especially in the air where he won most battles. He was unfortunate not to have scored against Wales, striking the upright.
Centre back: Paul Straughn (Brittons Hill) – Another Brittons Hill player on the team for the second week. The diminutive but boisterous central defender continues to hold his team together and protects whoever is in goal, as shown by Brittons Hill’s two clean sheets thus far.
Left midfield: Carl Joseph (Wales) – Two fantastic goals against Paradise gave Wales the 2-0 win.
Right midfield: Zakidyah Samuels (Brittons Hill) – Two exquisitely taken goals against Dayrells Road earned the skilful winger a spot on this week’s roster.
Centre midfield: Jabarr Greene (Wales) – The feisty magician has seemingly put his injury woes behind him as he gave two brilliant displays. One moment of brilliance was the defence-splitting pass for Tristan Parris to open the scoring versus Cosmos.
Centre midfield: Rico “Sas” Baptiste (Gall Hill) – If grabbing the game winner against Dayrells Road was not enough, the execution of the volley scored surely earns a spot on the team for a second successive week.
Shane Welch (Silver Sands) – Welch marked his return to Premiership football with an inspiring two-goal performance to earn his team an opening victory over Notre Dame.
Armando Lashley (Paradise) – In spite of some lacklustre finishing against Wales, the national forward redeemed himself with two goals against Dayrells Road to take his tally to four goals for the season.
