Trinidad and Tobago will host the Americas World Youth Netball qualifiers next July, twinning the occasion with 1979 World Netball 40th anniversary celebrations, for which 2019 Netball World Cup champions New Zealand, and runners-up Australia have been invited.

Kyle Greaux and Jereem “The Dream” Richards are Trinidad and Tobago teammates. The 200-metre sprinters are also rivals.

At the 2017 National Championships, Richards captured the men’s half-lap title for the first time, getting the better of Greaux in a keenly contested final. Greaux turned the tables at the 2018 Championships, grabbing the crown from Richards a couple months after “The Dream’s” golden run at the Commonwealth Games.

Chris Dehring, former chief marketing executive with the West Indies Cricket Board, sees a bleak future for Cricket West Indies (CWI) if the revenue spread in world cricket does not change.

THERE will be no compromise between William Wallace and his sidelined executives of the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) and the FIFA-imposed normalisation committee.
