Hello and a warm welcome! My name is Nathan Carr and I’m a 20-year-old Sports Journalism student at Staffordshire University, born and raised in England, who set up The Home of Caribbean Football (NewsNow accredited) in my bedroom aged 15 on 9th June, 2012. That was around the time when my interest in Caribbean football really started and I decided to create this blog in order to explore that interest in more depth. I hope it can convince the masses that there is more to the Caribbean than just the stereotypical sunshine, sandy beaches and turquoise sea. From the outset the 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 blog 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.

I will keep working hard to one day fulfill this dream – not necessarily for me, but for the people of the Caribbean.

Peace!

  1. great articles, it would be great if there was a section on football development (courses, new books, coaching development etc..)

  2. Really enjoyed looking at your website, Nathan. A wide range of information here. You deserve your dream of writing about football on a professional basis to come true! Your enthusiasm and dedication are apparent.

  3. I’m doing research for a series of books I am hoping to publish from next year. I wrote to you a very polite request for some possible information earlier this year and even stated that I would be grateful to research the answers if you could point me in the right direction. It would have been good to received even a negative reply. What is it with Caribbean websites ? The Soca Warriors website were exactly the same when I tried to register with them !

  4. Hi Paddy. I genuinely don’t remember seeing anything from you asking for information – when was it that you sent me a request? I tend to reply to people very quickly usually, you see.

  5. Hello Nathan. Thank you for your reply. It was some weeks back I was asking for some/any information on a Trinidad & Tobago international which is why I was also trying to access the Soca Warriors ‘site. I wanted more details of a player called Sherron Manswell. Like I said, any help would be appreciated as it’s to help in the research I’m doing regarding my project. Thank you, again, for your reply.

    • I’ve not actually heard of Sherron Manswell before, admittedly. But I know a few people connected to Trinbagonian football who might well be able to help you out. I’ll keep you posted.

    • I messaged the Soca Warriors site for you and they said this: “He did pretty well in college and even got invited to the MLS Combine. After college, he played in the National Super League in T&T. As far as I know he’s still in T&T.” Interview with Manswell from 2008: https://t.co/nkfHfbZTKU

  6. That’s great. Thanks very much. Sod’s Law of course, I wanted to find out who he played for before College as that’s when he started playing internationally.

    You got feedback from Soca Warriors ? Impressive ! 😁

  7. Thanks very much Nathan and good luck with the ‘site. It’s looking very impressive. I’ll try the Soca Warriors boys again. You never know.
