New captain Travis Mulraine will lead this country s Senior team in tomorrow s CFU Gold Cup qualifying encounter against St Kitts/Nevis at the Hasely Crawford Stadium from 6pm.


Technical Director Hannibal Najjar officially named Mulraine captain and Gary Glasgow vice captain on Thursday as the team checked in a the Ambassador Hotel for their live-in camp.

Mulraine was looking forward to the challenge ahead.

"Firstly I want to say all praises be to Allah for giving me this opportunity. I think that for the short space of time we've had to prepare, we've done well so far especially on the defensive end. In terms of attack things will just flow because naturally we have a lot of good attacking players. We shouldn't have problems creating chances but I think putting the chances away is what could be the hardest thing for us," the CL Financial San Juan Jabloteh midfielder told TTFF Media during a training session at the HC Stadium on Thursday evening.

"In football these days you can't take anyone lightly but we have a proper game plan. They have a fit team and they like to play an open running game. Once we keep our shape and keep the ball I think we should safe."

Mulraine, formerly of Joe Public, also commented on how the team has responded to Najjar so far.

"I think the guys are getting used to him. He is a very serious minded individual and he knows what he wants. I think the guys are trying their best to give him what he wants. It can be seen that one or two star players were left out and that is an indication of the type of individual that he is," said the former National Under 23 captain.

There were no injury problems in the T&T camp with Arima Fire defender Uz Taylor being the only one requiring treatment for a slight knock on the knee.
