Former Tivoli Gardens FC captain, Romaine Brackenridge, has moved to Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) champions Portmore United, saying the move allows him to continue his development and achieve personal goals.

Brackenridge, who spent three years at Tivoli Gardens, decided to leave the club to pursue his dream of gaining a professional contract and representing the national team.

"It is a better opportunity for me to get out there as a player in terms of my development as a player. I have some personal goals, like getting a professional contract and making the national team," Brackenridge told STAR Sports yesterday.

"I think Portmore is the best team to help me develop as a football player. I am grateful to Tivoli Gardens after spending three years there, but it is time to move on," the 23-year-old central defender added.

'"I have been training with Portmore United for about a month and the players have welcomed me with open arms. They are good and teaching me about the system of play and I am enjoying preseason," Brackenridge shared.

Brackenridge also spent two years at his community club Rockfort FC, where he played in the Kingston and St Andrew Football Association (KSAFA) Super and Major leagues.
