The like of Dwight Yorke, a Manchester United stars, Russell Latapy and Stern John wowed opponents and fans at the highest level of the game.  While admitting that the current squad lacked that level of talent and experience, the coach, who was part of a historic team that took part in the 2006 World Cup, admitted that it was the national programme’s ultimate objective.

“I don’t think we have a player at that level. Dwight Yorke won the Champions League and played in the Premier League for a number of years.  That is the talent we need to get back to,” Lawrence said in assessing the current squad.

“We need to have players on this more competitive level because it helps the football and it helps the other players around them.

 The idea is for us to come together as a group and develop that type of talent,” he added.  The coach insisted that it would be a work in progress.

“We going to create the Dwight Yorke and the Stern Johns and the Russell Latapy over a number of years but for now it’s all about baby steps.”
