Cudjoe pays tribute to crash victim

Minister of Sport, Shamfa Cudjoe, is sending condolences to the friends and family of Shahdon Winchester; the national footballer who died in a car accident this morning. 

Describing him as an ardent, professional footballer, Cudjoe says Winchester represented Trinidad and Tobago both at the youth and senior level having made 27 appearances for the senior Soca Warriors and scoring six international goals. 

Winchester was also the captain of the W Connection Football Club and had stints in Finland, Mexico and Azerbaijan.  

Minister Cudjoe said, “Shahdon’s passing is truly a shock to the entire football fraternity, and by extension Trinidad and Tobago. He was a true patriot and his passion and dedication to the sport of football would surely be remembered. Trinidad and Tobago has, indeed, lost a gem.On behalf of the Ministry of Sport and Youth Affairs I extend sincerest condolences to his family and friends at this time. May he rest in peace.”
