Bennet and Gold to Trinidad
October 6, 2008

In the recent hundred-year anniversary of country’s history with football, a new force is coming that is sure to make waves in the football community. This past Friday, two players flew to Port of Spain to continue their careers for United Petrotrin. Why are these players different? They’re not from T&T. Jeremy Gold and Ian Bennett are some of the first non-Trinidadian players to play in the Pro League. Gold and Bennett’s sports agent, CEO of MLF Sports Heather MacKenzie, made this transfer when the team expressed interest to boost the team from their current sixth place ranking.

MacKenzie is not unfamiliar with T&T football. She represents 12 players from Trinidad. Two of her athletes, OseiTelesford and Andre Toussaint, have played the last two games for the National Team. She believes that Gold and Bennett could make a substantial impact for United Petrotrin and also begin a new relationship between T&T and players from other countries.

Jeremy Gold was born in Lincoln, Nebraska, historically a big American football town. He attended the IMG Soccer Academy in Florida early on in his career, and attended college at the College of Charleston. Gold just finished the PDL (Premier Development League) season and lead his team, the Thunder Bay Chill, to their first National Championship. He finished with a total of nine goals and three assists in 15 games.

Ian Bennett hails from Canada and started his football career in Florida as well, training in Cocoa Beach, Florida for the Ontario Provincial Program. He graduated from Marian College in Indiana with accolades such as the Mid-Central College Conference Player of the Year, three-time conference first team selection, and set school records for career goals and points. He recently finished the season with the Richmond Kickers.

July 14, 2008

The Thunder Bay Chill clinched a playoff birth Saturday as they downed the Kansas City Brass, completing a two-game sweep of the club. Jeremy Gold continued to spark the Chill attack, recording an assist and a goal. His goal would come in the 56th minute as he drove home the goal that gave the Chill their first lead. Gold continued to provide his teammates with scoring opportunities up until the final whistle of the second half, but the Chill found themselves knotted in a 2-2 tie. Despite being one man down, the Chill rallied during extra time, as Brandon Swartzendruber converted a “near-perfect” Jeremy Gold cross. The Chill were able to stave off the Brass for the remainder of extra time, becoming the second PDL team to clinch a playoff berth.
