“This is a tremendous honour for me to go down in the books as a Player of the Year for Trinidad and Tobago and to be classified among so many other committed and dedicated individuals who have won this award in the past. This has been a most challenging and difficult period for so many of us in sport, football and generally as people across the world. I think it was a blessing to be able to play football in 2021 and I would like to dedicate this award to the many others who contributed to our football in 2021, teammates and staff members. Hopefully we can take this drive into 2022 on the path to recovery.”
