FOUR T&T footballers returned home from Barbados on Monday. The players returned on a flight with students from UWI, Cave Hill.

Shackiel Henry, Garnet Diaz, Dwight Pope and Shirlo Johnson were all playing for Paradise FC in the Barbados Football Association’s 2020 Premier League competition, before covid19 stopped the league in March. The players arrived in Barbados between January 23 and February 15 to represent the club.

Paradise FC president Adrian Donovan, in an interview with Newsday on Saturday, asked the Government to help the four footballers.

A number of T&T footballers have been trying to return home, some more fortunate than others. Darrion Williams, Haile Beckles and Kazim Donald returned home from Suriname along with 69 other T&T nationals on May 1.

Jomal Williams, Jamal Jack and Jomoul Francois are currently stuck in El Salvador.
