Trott excited to take up the reins at PHC

Winston Trott Jr says he is “honoured” to have taken over the helm as the coach of PHC Zebras.

The former PHC winger has succeeded Robert Bean as the coach of the club's Premier Division side and is now looking forward to serving in his new role.

“I'm honoured and excited to take on the role,” he said. “I've spent my entire footballing career with the club as a player and coach, so it holds a special place in my heart.”

Trott is no stranger to the majority of the players on his roster having previously coached them at youth level.

“I've been blessed to have coached most of the players throughout their youth development,” he said. “So it's gratifying to be able to see and develop them further at the senior level.

“I have a great support system around me in my coaching staff, as well as a good group of young players who are hungry to show what they can do, so I am excited to see what we can produce this year.”

PHC lost the valuable services of two of their most influential and senior players in Cecoy Robinson, who served as the team's captain, and Tre Ming during the Bermuda Football Association player release and registration period which expired on July 15.

Robinson, the son of former Zebras midfielder Cecil Robinson, has joined Dandy Town and Ming Southampton Rangers.

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

Commenting on the departure of Robinson and Ming, Trott, the father of PHC goalkeeper Shaquille Trott, said: “I don't have much to say on that. They made their decision and we're not focused on what they're doing.

“We wish them well. But our focus is on the players that are still at the club.”

Robinson and Ming are among a trio of Bermuda players that have joined new clubs during the transfer period which also includes Lejaun Simmons.

The 27-year-old winger has rejoined Devonshire Cougars following a glorious stint with their Premier Division rivals Robin Hood.

“I won a lot with Robin Hood and forever grateful playing with the players I played with at Robin Hood,” Simmons said.

“It wasn't no bad feelings. They knew one day I was going back and I reached out to the president and addressed the team and left in a respectful manner.”
