Another Fabian Taylor double strike was more than enough to extinguish the fire in the belly of Waterhouse as Harbour View scored the largest win by 2 goals to nil in the third round of the Wray and Nephew Premier League earlier today at Emmett Park, St. George’s College. The temperary home ground of Waterhouse as they put on the finishing touches at their newly built 5,000 capacity stadium at Drewsland is slated to be opened on Sunday October 5th, 2003.

On a day when four of the six scheduled games ended in draws, only Constant Springs’ one nil victory over Tivoli was the other three pointer as Harbour View eased into joint second position but with a superior goal average having scored four goals for and conceeded two, a goal difference of +2 as against Constant Spring with two goals for and one against, a goal difference of +1.
A disorganised looking Harbour View team at the beginning of the game, Waterhouse failed to capitalise on the many mix ups in defence and midfield as the teamwork was at sixes and sevens and were very fortunate the only ball in the back of the net was ruled offside by the alert officials. Gradually the coordination showed glimpses of happening. Late in the half one of the few counter attacking ploys was executed when Conrad Hunts’ pass found the very busy Luton Shelton who relayed to Jermaine Hue with his back to goal he pivoted, then slipped it wide to his right for Fabian who had lost his marker and drove it home from ten yards into the far post just ahead of the break.

Waterhouse seemed to be running out of attacking ideas as the game proceeded.
The second half saw a re-organised structure for Harbour View as Damion Stewart returned to his customary defensive role and the understanding of the teamwork seemed to click instantly as the waterhouse unit were stunned by an array of fast moving ball artistry that at times left the Live Televised audience in a dase as even the waterhouse supporters looked in awe as the ‘View’ came to life. Fabian Taylor latched on to the end of a Daniel Shaw counter square after catching Jermaine Hue’s left sided square at the back post to put the game out of reach. Another strike on goal was ruled offside but the excellent saves by both goalkeepers Leeroy Gray and Locksley Reid denied any further modifications to the scoreline.
There are no Under 21 game on Wednesdays only on Sundays.

This Sunday September 28th HARBOUR VIEW takes on SEBA UNITED at the Harbour View Stadium at 3:30pm following the Under 21 game at 1:00pm.

Harbour View Under 21 outclasses Invaders by 4 goals to nil.
Two goals by Kemar Petrekin and one each from Michley Wual and Jermaine Rowe were too much for the young Invaders as the KSAFA Under 20 Champions now reassembled found their groove and waltzed away convincing victors.


Since the days when the eager citizens of Harbour View grouped together at the Harbour View Primary School halls to meet and greet each other all around The love of football mostly then at the Minor League Under 16 years level before taking the conscious decision to enter the Major League in September 1974 after electing officers in the newly formed Harbour View Football Club previously named after the community only – Harbour View.

The View bounces back to winning wayswith a 2-1 victory over Invaders F.C.

International Reggae Boy Fabian Taylor opened his goal scoring account today with a double impact to lead title challengers Harbour View F.C. to their first win of the season over new entrant Invaders of Trelawny at the Elleston Wakeland Centre before a fair- sized crowd. The welcoming home for Clifton Waugh, Jermaine Hue and Leon Gordon was almost cancelled out by injuries to Robert Scarlett and William Richards suffered in training on Thursday , adding to Damion Stewart’s broken nose exactly a week before.

An intricate build up was delayed by a timely tackle that was diverted to Sean Fraser on the left and his one time pass was sweetly controlled by Taylor as he rounded a defender and the goalkeeper before composing himself and slotting home past the last defender on the line in minute twenty one.

Invaders struck back nine minutes later when the experienced Winston Anglin‘s quickly taken freekick at the top of the area found the unmarked Greg Taylor who scored from eight yards. As a fighting new unit of young and senior players, Harbour View summoned up just enough courage and class to steal a last minute (93rd) victory when their last gasp attack was converted by Fabian who celebrated the ball played to him by slamming home from close in.

ON WEDNESDAY 24TH SEPTEMBER – Harbour View travels to Waterhouse at 3:30pm in a Live Televised Game. There will be no
Under 21 games.
Harbour View Under 21 outclasses Invaders by 4 goals to nil.
Two goals by Kemar Petrekin and one each from Michley Wual and Jermaine Rowe were too much for the young Invaders as the KSAFA Under 20 Champions now reassembled found their groove and waltzed away convincing victors.

Robert Scarlett returns from Israels’ Maccabi Tel Aviv

After a day and a half of travelling Robert arrived in Israel to start a 7 day trial at the
30,000 supporter club. He trained daily and played well in two games winning the first
by 4-0 and the second an official Toto Cup tie ended in a 1-1 scoreline. He awaits the

Makes us the Champion of the BEST CHAMPIONS Ever in Jamaica’s football History.

Oh CHAMPIONS Again, what a feeling.

The two players that are constantly hounded at the National level for extraordinary performances only while others cruise, turned up the throttle yesterday to prove their worth to all detractors, fans and Harbour View die-hards celebrated with unbridled ecstacy.

Midfield maestro Jermaine Hue scored the pile driving winning goal after 20 minutes from the left side of the box that blasted the palm of custodian Shawn Sawyers out of the way on its way into the back of the net.

Then back in form brave-heart Leon Gordon was a man possessed with a mission to achieve Championship honours as he blocked, clutched and  frustrated every effort thrown at him for the last hour of the game.

The game was played at a hectic pace as Harbour View dominated the first half while Hazard came storming back in the second in search of the now elusive equaliser.

At the end Jamaica National Building Society Representative Mr Emile Spence  presented the Trophy to Captain Damion Stewart and he hoisted it all with the joyous group of teamates as they danced to rocking reggae rhythms.

The Most Valuable Player Trophy and a cash prize was presented to goalkeeper Leon Gordon.

Congratulations to coach Donavan Hayles, Manager Vin Blaine and all the Technical Staff and Players for their outstanding work  and of course all our diehard Supporters who never gave up and “Refused to Lose”

Coming from a goal or two down seems to what gets the goalscoring machinery firing. Once again infront of our home crowd the end of first round finalist having to prove their worth as the new breed ‘Refuse to loose’ attitude came to the fore alongside the dangerous habit of conceeding the first goal to the opponents.

The ever present Denton Vidal was fortunately placed inside the box to pounce on a spilt ball that oozed from the grasp of goalkeeper Leeroy Gray in reaction to Theodore Whitmore’s under pressure flicked attempt on goal in minute 52.

The midfield concert was entertaining as it was breath-taking as both teams traded combination passes to and fro. The Home team clicked earliest and should have scored on at least three occassions inside the box but had efforts by Jomo Gordon, Fabian Taylor and Marvin Morgan blocked on the line by the keeper and defenders in addition to Jermaine Hue’s 20 yard curler bouncing back into play after crashing of the bar

Whitmore then replied with his band of merrymen in deliberate buildups that lacked genuine strike force to climax to a crescendo.

The three substitutes McCreath,Sean Fraser and Khareem Cooke all raised the tempo of the game and McCreath duly obliged in minute 88 having come on in minute 66, then a minute later appeared again to beat the defence and fire goalwards only to see goalkeeper Alrick Henry block inside the near post.

The game ended 1-1.

Constant Spring vs. Tivoli was rained out, to be resheduled.

Bull Bay vs. Hazard was rescheduled to Thursday December 5th.

In the battle for early supremacy at the Tony Spaulding Complex both top of the table contenders produced another high quality epic encounter that gripped the large stadium audience as well as islandwide television viewers and radio listeners for more than 90 minutes, in sudden death extra-time the lethal right foot of Kevin Wilson was enough to bring the orchestrated schemes of both teams to a climax. Arnett were crowned champions.

The 96th minute cracker was a treat for all football enthusiast near and far from the venue as the weeklong hype lived up to its billing and in many areas surpassed it. Three stunning goals punctuated the tense feeling permeating the newly beautified stadium a fitting arena for the Leagues leading gladiators to showcase their talent.

Raw talent abounded from the first minute as players went in search of ‘ first blood’ by trying to establish midfield dominance that created dribbles, passes, one-two combinations, infringements with resulting heart stopping freekicks when the rivals failed, testing long range right and left footed screamers were driven with wicked intentions goalwards as the two former national custodians displayed their acrobatic manouevers to the delight of the fans.

2000 MVP Fabian Davis broke the deadlock after 19 minutes when he converted another 20 yard curling Classic to evade the diving Leeroy Gray inside his near post to lead 1-0. The cry of ‘Arnett,Arnett’ rang out as the Red and Black brigade charged forward through Kwame Richardson, Walter Boyd, Kevin Wilson, Jonathan Williams and Cornel Chinsue initially and the counter-attacking ball possesssion through young Sean Fraser, Jermaine Hue, Jomo Gordon, Marvin Morgan and the diminutive Daniel Shaw who was to produce a beauty of a goal in the 41st minute when his one-two with Fraser let fly a extraordinary blast from 34 yards under pressure to rocket against the far upright hit the back of the diving keeper and lodge in the net to the defeaning silence around the ground disturbed only by jubilant Harbour View Supporters who had travelled to the West Kingston venue.

The score justifiably remained at 1-1 at Halftime.

The second half was as intense as the first as a double substitution at the break of forwards Jomo Gordon and Dino Williams for Nicholas McCreath and Fabian Taylor launched more attacks against the increased presence in the other penalty box of Kevin Wilson and Walter Boyd, still no goals came but immense tension kept fans riveted at the edge of their seats punctuated by bits of individuals flair,long dribbles and defensive interceptions made the drama buildup even more intreging. It was not over after 90 minutes as the avid football connoisseur was heard to plea for extra-time as they yearned for more of the beautiful game.

Their wish was granted for six more pulsating minutes, then the Man of the moment Kevin ‘Pele’ Wilson claimed his territory with a remarkable strike to bring the curtains down of the first round as the new sponsors presented their novel new look trophy to Arnett Gardens.

Congratulations Arnett, extremely well done Harbour View – Football won handsomely today, give us more please.

‘The View’ refuses to loose at Arnett in comeback 2-2 draw.
Harbour View marched into the end of first round Finals next Sunday at a venue to be announced when we played to an exciting 2-2 draw away at Arnett Gardens yesterday

to set up a repeat game between both teams a week later.

All three teams Harbour View ,Arnett and Hazard will end the round on 24 points each, the superior goal difference of Harbour View (17) followed by Arnett (11) then Hazard (10) means Hazard once again has failed by the narrowest of margins to qualify for another end of round finals, three in the last three years following their 3-0 victory over Seba United yesterday at the Ferdie Neita Complex

The first strike on goal by Jomo Gordon rocketed of the crossbar and he would score for Harbour View on minute 39 to level the score as Cornel Chinsue had fired Arnett into the lead 10 minutes earlier.

Two second half strikes by former league MVP’s firstly Arnett’s Fabian Davis from the penalty spot in the 67th minute then the magnificent goalscoring form of midfielder Jermaine Hue scored another freekick from 30 yards out in minute 80 to make it his fourth goal in three games over the last seven days.

In the opening game both Under 21 teams played to a one all scoreline.

Led by two goals each from Jermaine Hue and Dino Williams in addition to strikes by Jomo Gordon, Craig Stewart, Ali Rose, Nicholas McCreath and Leon Gordon pushed Harbour View to the top of the League Standings with 23 points the same as Arnett Gardens but with a superior goal difference of 17 (27 goals for, 10 goals against) by contrast to Arnett with a goal difference of 11 (20 goals for, 9 goals against).
It was one-way traffic all afternoon at the Compound after the early exchanges when the visitors attacked twice ending dangerously close to scoring but they would have to wait until the 80th minute after the hosts had scored six goals.

Then the goalscoring machine was cranked up once more in the last five minutes to score another three goals in remarkable fashion –

87th minute – Nicholas McCreath struck from a dribble between two defenders from the top of the box, slidding wide of the keeper.

89th minute – Dino Williams blasts a torrid right-footer from the 17 yard mark.

91st minute – Reserve goalkeeper come centre-forward Leon Gordon would not be denied his day in the sun, so when Ali Roses’ drive was parried by the keeper he dived in foot first to register his first Premier League goal as a outfield player.

Smiles all around were to be seen by the Harbour View supporters as they all look forward to the penultimate game on Sunday against Arnett Gardens away.

HIGH DRAMA UNFOLDED AT TIVOLI AS THE SPIRIT OF HARBOUR VIEW WAS REKINDLED IN THE MATCH OF THE DAY.
An intense battle ensued at the beginning of the game as both teams surged forward with the aim of getting the opening goal. The honour went convincingly to Tivoli as the smooth striker Roland Dean sneaked in between defenders to score at the near post.

One became two soon after, when the bustling Christopher Nicholas slipped behind defenders to drive home a 13 yard pile-driver past Leeroy Gray, establishing a strong 2 – 0 advantage after 30 minutes.

Jomo Gordons’ header against the post in addition to other efforts by the Harbour View attacking force, failed to dent the deficit.

The second half saw a brand new spirit of attack-until-you-die style football from “The View” as Coach Donovan Hayles delivered a rousing motivational speech that energized the soldiers into battle. The war of attacking football that was to unfold was a display rarely seen in local football history, memories of the epic battles of the 1970’s and the best of the 1980’s against Boys Town came flooding back as Harbour View scintillating style of one touch topped of with magnificent finishing at pace, was how the team overcame the challenge of coming from two goals down.

Substitutes Christopher Jackson, Nicholas McCreath and Dino Williams all contributed heavily in securing victory as Daniel Shaw finished off a McCreath square, then McCreath finished accurately from a Jackson grounder. Jermaine Hues’ magnificent Free kick left goalkeeper Edsel Scott injured and the Tivolites heart-broken as he scored the third but the coup de grace was left to the death in the 90th minute for new recruit to control Dino Williams’ pass from the right to fire home from 27 yards out over the stunned goalkeeper for an historic win.

Tumultuous applause rang out at Tivoli by the jubilant Harbour View supporters as praised was heaped on all the players who hugged each other and great comfort in victory to Daniel Shaw and coach Donovan Hayles both of whom were sent off the field earlier.

All Harbour View supporters congratulates the team and wishes the spirit shown on Sunday grows from strength to strength as the team progresses, well done Harbour View –

“The Spirit lives on”.

In the fast-action shooting battle that ensued at the Prison’s Oval yesterday, visitors Harbour View shot into the lead within the first 16 seconds of the start. Hatrick man Jomo Gordon slipped by goalkeeper Allen Whittacker to slot home the first of three strikes that followed in minutes 14 and 19 to register the first hatrick this season. The wet surface made attacking by two very competent attacking units extremely easy to please the crowd, scoring at regular instances throughout between the continuous showers.Patrick Beech responded for Rivoli before halftime (37th) then substitute Nicholas McCreath scored from a one-two combination with Fabian Taylor in minute 67. Rivoli again fought back to score in minute 72 with a header from Shawn Simpson only to see the dominant Harbour View midfielder Daniel Shaw convert another Fabian Taylor assist in minute 87 to close the seven goal spree, leaving Harbour View temperarily at the top of the Premier League tables with 17 points.
