Sources have confirmed, that Caledonia AIA and Puerto Rico Islanders FC have reached an agreement on the transfer of Trinidad and Tobago international Keon “Schillaci” Daniel from the TTPro League to the United Soccer League (USL).
Daniel, a native of Lambeau, Tobago and a graduate of the St. Clair Coaching School will join fellow nationals Kevon Villaroel, Osei Telesford and Kendall Jagdeosingh for the 2010 season that commenced on Saturday, April 9th.
Capped 37 times for his country, the T&T international is looking forward with enthusiasm to the season with his new club.
When asked to reflect on his season with Caledonia AIA, he said “I am grateful for the opportunity that I had with Caledonia, I cannot begin to tell you how much I have learnt from Coach Jamaal Shabaaz and his staff during my time at the club.
All I can really say, is that I am thankful for my time there because it provided the foundation for me to embrace this new opportunity, and I would just like to wish them (Caledonia AIA) all the best for the upcoming TTPro league season.”
“Last season the PR Islanders finished third in the USL, and I am looking forward to helping them improve that position this season. I am also looking forward to helping them qualify for CONCACF Champions League (CCL) via the CFU tournament”, the possibility of playing CCL was a major attraction for Daniel.
“I am walking into this opportunity prepared to work hard every day to give my best for PR Islanders.”
