    CALIFORNIA, Trinidad & Tobago – Central FC announced Tuesday that Trinidad & Tobago international goalkeeper Jan-Michael Williams has a signed a contract extension with the TT Pro League side through the end of the 2015-16 season.

    “We’re hoping to keep most the squad together, so we see no reason not to finalise contracts now,” said Central FC’s managing director Brent Sancho.  “Players like stability and so do coaches, so in most cases we will be offering two year contracts.” 

    Sancho, a former Trinidad international, said that the 29-year-old had a great season with the club.

    “He is simply the best keeper in Trinidad,” commented Sancho, who played in all three of Trinidad’s games at the 2006 FIFA World Cup.  “But more than that, Jan-Michael is an asset to the club off the field.  This season, Jan-Michael has been coaching our youth team goalkeepers and visiting schools as part of our Football in the Community programme.

    “I’ve been privileged to play in front of some of T&T’s finest keepers.  I’d rate Jan-Michael alongside Shaka Hislop, Kelvin Jack, Clayton Ince and even Crystal Palace’s Italian keeper Julian Speroni.” 

    Williams joined Central in 2013 and has appeared in seven career CONCACAF Gold Cup matches, including four during Trinidad’s run to the 2013 quarterfinals.
