Shaw torn as he plays former club
Tevin Shaw will face his former club Boys' Town FC for the first time since leaving Collie Smith Drive for Tivoli Gardens during the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) summer transfer window. It won't be an easy game for Shaw as he will be against his beloved Boys' Town.
The game is scheduled for this Sunday, at Boys' Town's Barbican Complex home turf, starting at 3 p.m. It will be live on Television Jamaica (TVJ).
"I'm mentally and physically ready for this upcoming game against a club that I still love," Shaw told STAR Sports during the RSPL weekly press conference at Red Stripe yesterday.
"I will be facing my former club for the first time, a club that I love very much. However, I will be playing against them and the aim is to win the game for Tivoli when the game finish on Sunday," he added.
After spending eight years at Boys' Town where he was captain of the Under-13, Under-15, Under-17 and Under-20 teams and also played in the senior team for the past two seasons at the club popularly named Red Brigades, Shaw decided to leave because of personal reason.
"It was a tough decision, because of personal reason which I won't say. I did very well at Boys' Town, so there won't be any hard feelings in the game. The love is the same," the former Camperdown Manning Cup star informed.
The Rema resident won five titles at the youth level at Boys' Town and the major one was leading Boys' Town to the Kingston and St Andrew Football Association (KSAFA)-Alliance Finance-McKay Security title with a 1-0 victory against Waterhouse on June 10.
Shaw, who plays in the central midfield role for his new club says if he scores it won't be any excessive celebration.
"I will have to accept the goal, but I won't make a meal of the celebration. Both clubs have players and coaches who know each other well, so it will be a tough game," he declared.
