Randel Coipel

18-year-old striker Randel Coipel of We United Football Club of Castle Bruce was added to an eighteen man squad which travelled this morning to Suriname to take on the host country in the Concacaf Nations League

President of the We United Football Club, Kurt Chrismas, told DNO, “we are very elated that one of our members got selected on the national team. We are happy about it; we finally see the hard work that the young men are putting in it, are paying off.”

Christmas said that having his players selected to the national team is enough reason to be elated.

“Whether he (Randel) starts the match or not,  is not really an issue. Just wearing your national colours is already a big moment for the young man, whether he actually plays or not,” Christmas reasoned.

Randel Coipel, for his part, is “ very happy for his club and country.”  He told our newsroom said that he is very passionate about the sport. “It is not about money, because in Dominica, is not about money, is your heart you have to have in that.…. this is not a job in Dominica. In other places, it’s a job, but in Dominica, is not a job. So is your heart and love for the sports.”

The team will once again be lead by Captain Glenson Prince. The other members of the squad are:

Ajaya Royer, Erskim Williams, Javid George, Travis Joseph, Briel Thomas, Sidney Lockhart, Julian Wade, Euclid Bertrand, Malcolm Joseph, Donan Jervier, Donte Newton, Anfernee Frederick, Christon Bernard, Curdel Joseph & Audel Laville.

Technical Staff: Rajesh Joseph Latchoo – Head Coach, Ellington Sabin – Asst. Coach, Henrich Anslem – Manager, Courtney Challenger- Goalkeeper Coach, Delroy Watt- Fitness Trainer, Enoch Lee MEdics Personnel, Reginald Darroux – Equipment Manager

With its motto “Strength in Unity”, the United Football Club was started in 2017 and was promoted to the premier league in 2019.

Christmas said his club is not only involved sports but in many other social programs in the communities of Castle Bruce, Good Hope , San Savuver and Petite Soufriere. They have undertaken programs such as providing Easter baskets for the Elderly; a walk is presently being organized jointly with the Cancer Society.

“It is all about the executive; the executive is well structured and take the games very seriously”.

The We United Football Club’s goal is to make great leaders of all their players – men and women. In addition to the adult men’s team, the Club boasts of a women’s team and an under 15 team which they consider as a feeder club for their adult men’s team. They are one of the few football clubs on the island with four active divisions: The Premiere, 1st Disivion, Women and Under 15.

“So for a club which started in 2017, we are doing well in the East,” Christmas proudly stated.

He said that football in the Eastern District is very much alive and active, as there are two clubs in the area, namely, We United and East Central. East Central is made up of players mostly from the villages of Good Hope, San Sauver and Petite Soufriere.

Dominica Plays Suriname in Suriname on Friday the 15th of November, then returns home to take on St.Vincent and the Grenadines on Monday 18th November at Windsor Park Stadium.
