    On the move: Cecoy Robinson has left boyhood club PHC and joined Premier Division rivals Dandy Town


PHC Zebras have lost the valuable services of two of their most influential and senior players.

Cecoy Robinson, who served as the Zebras captain, and Tre Ming have both parted company with their childhood club.

Robinson, the son of former Zebras midfielder Cecil Robinson, has joined Dandy Town while Ming is weighing up a move to Somerset Trojans, Southampton Rangers or newly promoted St George’s Colts.

Robinson and Ming are members of the Bermuda team and featured in the island’s maiden Concacaf Gold Cup campaign last summer. The pair have both expressed a desire for a fresh challenge with a new club.

“It’s a new challenge to test myself somewhere else and see how it goes,” Robinson, 32, said.

“I was a bit motivated to play with some of the neighbourhood players who I grew up with, so that was part of the motivation as well. It’s a new challenge and I’m looking forward to it.”

Ming, 26, added: “I have been at PHC since I was three, so I definitely wanted a different challenge and seeking another motivation going forward.

“Right now, just finalising them [PHC] signing my [release] papers.

“Basically it’s me just getting the release and then tomorrow [today] everyone finding out about my new club. It will be between St George’s, Somerset and Rangers.”

Forward Robinson admitted that leaving with PHC was a “difficult decision” to make.

“It was a hard decision because I love PHC,” he said. “It was difficult to make that decision but that’s what I’ve done.

“I did factor in that I was the captain and the bonds that you create with players over the years. Not just them, but the young players as well watching us play week in, week out, so you have to factor in a lot.”

Robinson and Ming won multiple honours during their time at PHC.

“All of the memories at PHC stand out to me,” Robinson added. “But I guess going back-to-back league champions is one of those as a skipper that you dream of doing, so it was a great feeling to be able to do that with PHC.”

Midfielder Ming added: “It’s been a good run and was good while it lasted.”

Meanwhile, other players believed to be contemplating leaving PHC are Bermuda midfielder Marco Warren and forward Kadeem Abraham.

PHC also have a new coach in their former winger Winston Trott Jr who has succeeded Robert Wilson.

Trott is the father of Shaquille Trott, the PHC goalkeeper.

The Bermuda Football Association player release and registration period expires at 5pm today.
