Golden Jaguars and Slingerz Football Club attacking mid-fielder Trayon Bobb has given his team a vote of confidence as they seek to complete the double and top both the League Genesis and Finale of the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) Stag Elite League.
The 22-year old Bobb in an interview with Guyana Times Sport on Sunday said “I am confident in my team, we have been working together for a long time and we understand one another as much as possible as we play our own brand of football”.
Bobb, seen here battles for possession in a match for Guyana against Costa Rico in 2012, will have to use all his experience to help guide Slingerz to the title once more
Bobb, began his professional football career with Caledoinia AIA of the Professional League in Trinidad and Tobago in 2011; then moved to Finland in 2013 to join Kotkan Työväen Palloilijat FC after which he was able to secure a joint loan to Rovaniemi FC in the same country.
The player who made his first appearance for the Golden Jaguars senior side in August 2013 against India at the age of 18 is of the view that the Elite League is vital to the development of Football in Guyana.
“I have been away playing in Trinidad and Europe and this is my first time coming back home and playing in this league thus far; I think it’s really a good league for everyone in Guyana to show their talent and for young players to get exposure”, Bobb stated.
When questioned about his preferred position on the field he revealed that “I prefer to play on the wing mostly, that is my favorite position; my favourite footballer is Chicharito but also players like Douglas Costa from Bayern Munich because we all in the same position and are left footers”.
Slingerz to date has won all three of their matches and currently top the points table with nine points from three matches but faces arch rivals Alpha “the Hammer” United on Wednesday in an intriguing match that could see either team creating a greater strong hold on the top position.
Bobb who has scored two goals from three matches thus far, also played for Guyana Under-20 football team and is in no way daunted by the task at hand and expects his team to do well.
“I do believe it is a good match up for us to show our talents so I certainly do think we can go all, we work extremely hard in training and hard work usually pays off successfully”, he explained.
Slingerz play Alpha United at the Fruta Conquerors ground in Tucville on Wednesday from 18:00h, followed by the homes side against Monedderlust from 20:00h. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
