Hand of God Spirit-Lash

Picture courtesy Mark LyndersayMy name is Terry Fenwick and I was the last English defender Diego Maradona passed in the 1986 World Cup quarter-final to score the most famous goal in football.

In Trinidad, I see a lot in common with the small mining town near Sunderland in England, where I come from. Back doors were left open. One street would play football against the next street. All families knew each other. Yes, the climate is very different but the communities are very similar. They look after themselves, watch one another’s backs and want the best for their kids. That’s very warming to me, as an Englishman living here.

In Trinidad, I’m from Maraval and I love it. I’ve lived most of my 21 years here in Maraval.

My daughter, Remi Grace Fenwick, keeps me ticking. She’s four-and-a-half, going on 24. She’s very, very bright – no doubt takes after her mum, Reyna Kowlessar. She’s a hundred-mile-an-hour. She spends three or four nights a week with me. That’s covid entertainment right there.
