"Naturally gifted with sporting talents I found myself excelling in several sports that were available to me growing up in Trinidad and Tobago. These talents were harnessed playing football in the neighbourhoods where I lived (as well as in my primary and secondary schools) in the capital city of Port of Spain. Good in Athletics and being crowned Victor Ludorum at both my primary and secondary schools was an early confidence builder and then I focused on cricket and football. I also broke a 14-year-old jinx at my high school Fatima College by beating its rival St Mary’s college to win their first Inter college (Intercol) championship.
It was from Fatima College I was contracted to play professional soccer as it was called in the United States in the 1960s in Atlanta Georgia where racial segregation still existed. An experience that exposed me to a different world but which also moulded me into a confident Caribbean man rooted in my culture and confident in my own natural abilities, which was really an eclectic mix developed from the exposure to European and Caribbean football in a former British colony. It was in the bowels of the Atlanta Stadium that Kaisoca soccer was germinated.
Challenges faced in the US however paled in comparison to the constant struggles with persons involved in the administration of football in my own country as I matured as a footballer. Being exposed to professional soccer and a higher level of management in football, I had to contend with autocratic and selfish administrators in Trinidad and Tobago whose primary interest never seemed to be about lifting the game and establishing systems for continuous national development. I was taught to put God first and country after and I have lived by that teaching, in spite of challenges faced with the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association.
In my autobiography I cover periods of the rise and fall of football in Trinidad and Tobago over a period of approximately sixty years. I wrote this memoir hoping that my life story could serve as an inspirational guide and blueprint to those football stakeholders in Trinidad and Tobago interested in being competitive in Regional and International soccer once again. Those who don’t learn from their mistakes and continue to repeat them because of selfish ambitions will limit our progress and our nation’s development for current and future generations. Yours in football. Gally"
