Trevor Fernandes - Zanzibar & Seattle (U.S.)

Sporting Highlights -Trevor Fernandes
Zanzibar & Seattle

Special thanks to Mum & Dad who saved my sports articles when I didn’t appreciate them as much.

Dad for being my first coach.​

Zanzibar: Thanks to: Accu, Agnel, Amyot, Anthony Mendes, Anthony Miranda (Ref), Ceasar, Cajetan D’Silva, Gajendra, Lenny (Ref), Oliver, Tony & Ralph D’Sousa, Tony (Nick), Wolfango, Dr. Barton, Ahmed Idi, all school & men’s teammates and all whom I may have left out, for believing in me and supporting me through my young career in Zanzibar.​

Goa (India): Frs. Arnold, Ephram, Terrance, Chrysostom & Wilson Paes. Mike D’Sousa (Dhempo Sousa) and all St. Anthony’s Monte Guirre School players & students.​

Bangalore (India): Allan McBride, Fr. Sequeira, Mr. Das. All my college teammates at St. Joseph’s and Bangalore Universities. V. Peters – Mysore/Karnataka State. The first time that Bangalore Univ. had ever won the All Indian University Championship. That’s when I scored my double-hat-trick against Benares University, first 6 out of 7 goals.​

Combined Universities: Balkishan Singh. I was the highest scorer on Aussie tour – 15 goals in 5.5 games.​

India Seniors: Balkishan Singh, Udham Singh, K.D. Singh Babu, R.S. Gentle, Ajitpal Singh(capt), Jose Gonsalves, Jimmy Nagarwala, M.P. Ganesh and all those I may have forgotten both teammates and coaches.​

Seattle (U.S.): Special thanks to Mervyn (brother) who brought back my passion for the game after 3 years of playing only soccer. My first team in the US “Rye Mixers” sponsored by a beer company went unbeaten in the Berkeley Tournament (playing 3 games a day, for3 days). It had international players but what surprised me most was the way the European players (mostly Dutch) on our team could drink and still play well. We were 3 Fernandes brothers (Mervyn, Trevor & Hector). United Bothers/LA, Junghi, Pali, Hemat, Suki & all the rest of the team, winners of California Cup.​

Thanks to: Hector, Desmond, Beryl, Ramona, Thom Bangasser, Richard Casmier, Simba Soccer Team and all my teammates in Seattle Hockey Club. Sorry I don’t have any pics of our Seattle Team but would love to add them if any of you have some.​

U.S. 1984 Olympic Team: Allan Woods, Moin Iqbal, Gavin Fertherstone, Lee Yodder & all teammates.​

Thanks to Terrell & Tiara (son & daughter) for helping me put these pics and articles on PowerPoint.​

Please use the “zoom” at bottom right corner to increase the font to better read the articles for they are in small newspaper font are old and faded.​

Hello Trevor

Thank you for providing a biography of your accomplishments and a record of this from numerous sources. I was Mervyn’s classmate and over the years I have post contact with him. Please give him my warmest regards.

I know he lives in Brentwood, LA and many years ago I stayed with him during my regular visits to the USA from Australia.

A very Happy Christmas and New Year.
