Stern John commits to Central FC

Former T&T striker Stern John is targeting silverware in the CONCACAF Caribbean Club Championship as he renewed his committment to Central FC for the season ahead.

Along with the club, he will unveil the 20-man squad for the trip to the Dominican Republic on Friday afternoon at the Marvin Lee Stadium. The squad is expected to include former T&T standouts such as Carlyle Mitchell and Densill Theobald as well as the return of midfielders Darren Mitchell and Keron Cummings.

John assumed the role as head coach of Central FC last September, and is also an assistant coach to Dennis Lawrence for the men's senior team.

“I think the team we have put together [capable] of the task," John told reporters at the unveiling of Lollabee Group as a part sponsor of Central’s 2018 Caribbean campaign.

Central FC’s managing director Brent Sancho said, "Stern [has showed] his loyalty to those who played through (last season’s) difficult time by offering opportunities to 90 percent of last year’s squad and staff. Those players will [now] be supplemented by some very talented and experienced players."

Central FC will travel to the Dominican Republic on Sunday to face Jamaica’s Portmore United (Feb. 7), Haiti’s Racing FC (Feb. 9) and hosts Atlantico (Feb. 11) in Group B of the CONCACAF Caribbean Club Championship.
