Hello! A warm welcome to The Home of Caribbean Football (THOCF), an independent website dedicated to Caribbean football established by me, Nathan Carr, on 9th June, 2012.
Background: I’m from England and was born in a town called Solihull, which is just outside of Birmingham, in 1996. My roots lie in the Black Country, though, where most of my family hail from. I started blogging about football generally aged 14 and quickly became disillusioned with the saturated football content that was out there. I’ve always been quite a curious person and wanted to explore football in a different part of the world. I began researching into football throughout the Caribbean and was fascinated and captivated by the diversity and exotic nature of the islands. Having realised that there wasn’t a great deal of Caribbean football coverage in either print or online, I wanted to change that and so set up THOCF as an inquisitive 15-year-old. Ever since I’ve been hooked, so much so that Caribbean football has become one of my biggest passions. I care about its growth and want it to enjoy as much success as possible in the future. I have been fortunate enough to visit several Caribbean islands such as St Lucia (2002, 2017), Jamaica (2004), Antigua & Barbuda (2009), Martinique (2017) and Barbados (2017).
From the outset, my aim has been to try to provide good quality, insightful and passionate coverage on Caribbean international teams, tournaments, domestic leagues, players abroad and up-and-coming stars. I currently run the site as a hobby in my spare time. I do my best to ensure the information that you read comes from reliable sources and contacts based across the islands as well as carrying out my own independent research.
Portfolio: I’ve written about Caribbean/CONCACAF football for the likes of World Soccer Magazine, the official 2014 FIFA World Cup Guide, Irish Examiner, IBWM, Caribbean & Co, Bernews, A Football Report and others. I’m regularly asked to appear on TV shows/podcasts having been a guest on Sports Tonight Live, ExtraTime TV, KISWE App with Jimmy Conrad, The Dugout Show with Jason Roberts, Reggae Boyz Commentary, Radio FBNET, Feuerstein’s Fire Show, SPN Radio and others. As well as this, I’m the co-presenter of Caribbean Football Weekly, a weekly podcast which focuses on all things Caribbean football related, released on SoundCloud and iTunes. In the summer of 2017, I was media accredited to report on the Men’s Caribbean Cup Finals held at the Stade Pierre-Aliker in Martinique and the CONCACAF Gold Cup held across the United States. I’m a West Bromwich Albion fan and used to be a season ticket holder for seven years. I will soon be entering my Final Year as a Sports Journalism student at Staffordshire University in Stoke-on-Trent and am set to graduate in 2018. The dream is to one day work in the Caribbean covering football on a professional basis. For more on my journalistic portfolio, please visit LinkedIn.
