The Trinidad and Tobago’s Senior Women’s Team has emerged as a powerhouse in the Caribbean and has proven to be a team to be reckoned with in CONCACAF.

The team performed creditably during the campaign, playing unbeaten in the Caribbean Cup before defeating Jamaica 1-0 in the Final at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in 2014. They entered the CONCACAF final round with a great deal of anticipation and captain Maylee Attin-Johnson and her teammates defied the odds to make it to semi-final stage. Victories over Haiti and Guatemala and a gutsy showing in an opening 1-0 defeat to eventual World Cup champions United States were among the highlights of their campaign. But T&T failed in its bid to overcome Costa Rica in the semi-finals and Mexico in the third place playoff before losing 1-0 at home to Ecuador to see their qualifying dreams dashed.

Trinidad and Tobago’ Senior Women’s team completed two victories over Guatemala (2-1) and Guyana (5-1) to secure a place in the last four of CONCACAF Final round qualification in Houston in February. But a 5-0 loss to world champions United States ended the Olympic dream as both the US and Canada advanced to the Rio Olympics as the Concacaf representatives.

T&T had previously copped the Caribbean Olympic crown with a 1-0 victory over Puerto Rico in the final at the Ato Boldon Stadium, Couva after getting past Jamaica in the semi-final stage.

The Women’s Senior Team has produced several outstanding players, the likes of Desiree Searjeant, Ricarda Nelson, Kathyann Nixon and Izler Browne from the past, to current day players Kennya Cordner, Arin King, Mariah Shade, Ahkeela Mollon among others. Coaches who have overseen their early development include the late Robbie Greenidge who led the team in its first World Cup qualification attempt in 1991, Jamaal Shabaaz and Marlon Charles.

The senior team has maintained a ranking among the top fifty teams in women’s world football for quite some time and continues to make strides with its sights set on qualification for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

A vibrant local women’s league (WOLF) and a rapidly improving Secondary Schools League has also played a pivotal role in the development of players and acts as a feeder for the Senior Team
