2008 is an exciting year for the Warrior Nation and Trinidad and Tobago football on the whole! On the heels of our momentous performance in the 2006 World Cup, qualification matches for the 2010 World Cup are soon approaching and the mouthwatering anticipation of witnessing our Soca Warriors come up against the best in CONCACAF is frantically building. With a new coach at the helm, new players to bolster the previous World Cup squad and a few creditable performances against CONCACAF rivals this year, the prospect of recapturing the glory of 2006 is. In light of this, the Warrior Nation has embarked on yet another groundbreaking project that is sure to be of interest to all stakeholders of T&T football. Enter---The Warrior Nation Team of the Week (TOTW). TOTW is basically a simulation selection of the T&T men’s national team displayed in a unique and colorful illustration. Each week the spotlight will be placed on T&T football’s peak performers as they excel at their respective professional football clubs.
Log on to thewarriornation.com on Friday February 29th 2008 at 2 PM (EST) for a live WebChat with one of Trinidad and Tobago’s emerging strikers, Darryl Roberts. One of six Soca Warriors plying their trade on top flight teams in Europe, the 24 year old Sparta Rotterdam striker is quickly being recognized by the T&T football fraternity as a key player in the Soca Warriors push to regain the glory achieved at the 2006 World Cup. During his educational pursuits, Darryl has played for Fatima College, Liberty University and USL PDL club, Carolina Dynamo. He has received numerous honors and accolades for his accomplishments on the aforementioned teams and also spurred interest from Dutch club Sparta Rotterdam and Toronto FC (MLS). In February 2007 Darryl was drafted by Toronto FC, but chose to accept an offer from Sparta Rotterdam to play in the Dutch Eredivisie. On his debut for Sparta in April 2007 against SC Heerenveen, Darryl scored his first goal within two minutes of stepping onto the field. Since then he has made a crucial impact on the Club’s top flight survival by scoring 7 goals in 13 starting appearances and 11 as a substitute.

Though things were looking bleak for a while, our first annual food drive was a successful one. In true Trini style, most of the contributors waited until the last minute to drop off their items. The benefactor of this drive was FEEL (Foundation for the Enhancement and Enrichment of Life). In addition to food, they were also presented with a cheque in the amount of $2,000 TTD.
