  10. 10. 10 Grabbing hold of Every Opportunity, Goalkeeper Connie John Known by many as “CJ”, Connie John is one of two National Senior Goalkeepers making up the National training squad for the 2015 Season of Women’s competitions. With 11 years goalkeeping experience, John who hails from Pearls, St. Andrews believes that football is her only ticket to seeing another dream of hers’ materialize. The twenty-four year old is hoping that through football she would be able to attend University and one day become a Child Psychologist. John shares with us how she got started as a goalkeeper, what it is like being a female goalkeeper and a little bit about herself. 1. What’s it like living in Pearls? -Well, first off people tend to think when you are from Pearls you live on the Airport but actually I’m from the main street of Pearls closer to Moyah. It’s a great place to live. 2. You come from a large family, do your other siblings play football? Yeah I’m the 6th out of 9 siblings, unfortunately none of my brothers or sisters are into football, just my father. He always says I’m the only one who took after him.
  11. 11. 11 3. When did you start Goalkeeping? -I started playing football when I was in Primary School as a right defender. My dad, Alstead John was a footballer and he coached me, but it was only during a Women’s Tournament that I actually got the chance to be the goalkeeper. The actual goalkeeper did not show up and I ended up volunteering as the goalkeeper and that was when everyone saw my capabilities. My father who was there at the time really guided me through the match, and the coach saw my potential as a Goalkeeper. 4. Describe how being a Goalkeeper is for you? -Well, Its hard work and you really have to be confident. People tend to blame the results of a game on the goalkeeper at times and the crowd says nasty things to you, but once you have a positive mindset and you are determined, it’s alright. 5. Tell us about your aspirations? - I really would like to attend University. I got accepted into Midwestern State University not once but twice and due to financial challenges I wasn’t able to attend. Even though I love football I always wanted to study Child Psychology and eventually branch out into social work. I know what I want from playing football and being able to attend University is one of it. I make every opportunity count because you never know where it can lead to. 6. Is there a Goalkeeper you look up to? - Yes! Shemel Louison he is from Gouyave and played with Queen’s Park Rangers but now he is in Trinidad and Tobago. We are good friends actually. I recall how frightened I would get being in front of a crowd as people are so mean. He taught me how to focus and ignore the crowd. 7. You have been selected for the National Team many times. How has that experience been? -It’s great. I feel a sense of pride when I represent my country and I encourage other females who might be considering Football to come out and experience such an opportunity. 8. What’s your favorite dish? -I’m not your typical Grenadian when it comes to food. I love Sushi, Chicken Alfredo and Mexican food. Sorry! I know you asked for one but they are all my favorites. 9. Which country did you enjoy visiting during a tournament? -I would have to say Barbados. I have been there many times as I have family there also so I’m accustomed to the food and people but even still it’s a great country. 10. If a local team had a women’s side who would you want to play for? - I would have to say Paradise, as they are the closest team to where I live and their team spirit is commendable.

Special commendations poured in from affiliates, member associations and confederations as well as experts in the business. Here are some of the encouraging responses we received.

The needs of our female footballers are different and therefore must be given special attention.” Dr. Gail Friday mentioned that the medical
  13. 13. 13 Football is more than 90 minutes for Marc Marshall Born and bred in the Limes, Grand Anse, St. George, Marc Marshall, presently attached to the National Senior Men’s Training Squad, tells us why Football is a lot more than 90 minutes and about his future plans in the sport. The last of four siblings, Marshall recounts learning from his older brothers the technical skills of the game and how local big names like Anthony Modeste and Brian Benjamin really inspired him to take on the sport more seriously. “I tried everything... I think I was in that phase where I wanted to play all sports, so basketball, table tennis, and athletics I tried, but football stuck... It was like this was the right fit for me”. Unlike other footballers Marshall strongly believe; that focusing on the players off the field is just as important as their capabilities on the field. “I’ve seen it all. Many people in my community lack guidance and it is because of this lack of guidance that so many people haven’t reach their fullest potential. The time off the field is just as important as being on and when focus is not placed on the mental state of the players you can see and feel the disconnect amongst the team”. TheIowaCentralCommunity College Graduate said he is looking to further his studies in Developmental Psychology at St. George’s University later this year. “St. George’s University is one of my options, but I’m also checking out international universities as well. I was able to secure a football scholarship through the assistance of Marlon Glean the first time around, so I’m hoping I’ll be fortunate to be able to obtain one to continue my education again.” One of the coaches attached to the Ministry of Sports, Marshall hopes to fuse his love of Psychology and football eventually. “I think in the next five years I will look at the administrative side of football in the area of working on the Social and Development aspects of players but for now I enjoy being a player.”
