DENNIS LAWRENCE TO VISIT SANTA RSA FOOTBALL SCHOOL

Former Trinidad and Tobago central defender Dennis Lawrence will visit FC Santa Rosa’s football school on Saturday 31 May. Lawrence enjoys the singular distinction of scoring the goal (against Bahrain) that sent Trinidad and Tobago to the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany. He is currently part of the coaching staff for Everton FC in the English Premier League.

Prior to coaching, Lawrence had a successful playing career in Trinidad and Tobago, England and Wales. He played with top local club Defence Force FC before transferring to Welsh club Wrexham FC of the English Football League, where he won several cup competitions. He then moved to Swansea City FC, where he won a league title. Prior to moving to Everton, Lawrence coached for three years at Wigan Athletic during which time he became the first Trinidadian to win the the English FA Cup.

FC Santa Rosa president, Keith Look Loy, was Lawrence’s coach at Malick Senior Comprehensive (of the Secondary Schools’ Football League) in 1990. Santa Rosa parent, Mark James, father of Santa Rosa Under-12 player Nathaniel, was also a Malick player at that time. Coincidentally, Lawrence’s fellow 2006 World Cup defender Cyd Gray also has a son, Jardel, in the Santa Rosa Under-12 team.

The Santa Rosa Nation looks forward to welcoming such a distinguished football personality to the club.
