A Bit of History
Founded in 1974, the San Juan Jabloteh Football Club’s stated objective was to help to improve the socio-economic and moral condition of the young people living in San Juan and its surrounding area defined as stretching from Morvant Junction and going east to Mt. Lambert and from the Croissee going north to Santa Cruz.
From the very beginning San Juan Jabloteh F.C. chose as the club’s colors, black, red and green. They represented the country’s spirit: Black, the color of strength, of unity, of purpose and of the wealth of the land represented the dedication of the team joined together by one strong bond. Red, the color of warmth and energy of the sun, the courage and friendliness of the team represented not only the vitality of the land, but also the courage and friendliness of the team. The color Green represented the productivity of the team.
Within three years the Jabloteh Football Club’s won its first trophy: the 1977 National Soccer League – winner of 3rd division. In the same year they also won a second major trophy: the1977 – TTFA Champion of Champions. The amateur football club won a third trophy in 1995 – Champion of the Eastern Football Association.
In 1994 the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation, now referred to as theTrinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA), created a semi-professional football league. The San Juan Jabloteh Sports Club decided transform itself from an amateur organization into a professional football club. The backing of CL Financial Limited (CLF) in 1996, permitted the club to strengthen its operations as it sought to establish itself as a major force in football not only in Trinidad and Tobago, but also in the Region. For from 1997 to 1999 the team placed fourth in the Semi-Professional League.
1999 saw the San Juan Jabloteh Football Club made the leap to become a member of a newly created Professional Football League (PFL) managed by the TTFA. Later in 2002, the club became a founding member of the TT Pro League. They saw extraordinary success at both the local and regional levels, winning a further 19 trophies within the next eight years.

I admit I am a fan of the San Juan Jabloteh Football Club, so when I discovered that this domain was available I bought it with the intent of restoring its content from archived pages. Unfortunately many of the pages and all the images were not retrievable. That was very disappointing. Nevertheless, I have added all the content I was able to find. For those of you who are fans of the San Juan Jabloteh Football Club this might be a nostalgic look back upon 2008.
The only person I know who is more of a Jabloteh Club fan is Benjamin Pred, a well known NYC lawyer who encouraged me to recover this content. I think Ben may be a fan of every club, since he's always advocating for anything football, and probably watches every game at least twice. The last time returned San Juan I discovered I had seriously scratched my prescription Ray Ban sunglasses. I was really upset since the frames were in perfect condition. From where we live, it's about a 2 hour round trip into the largest town that has an eye glass store where I could have the lens replaced. My wife said not to worry since she knew of an online site, Eyeglasses.com where you can easily mail in the glasses with a free shipping label. They offer single vision, progressive, bifocal, and trifocal replacement glasses lenses and for sunglasses you have many options including custom tint, Transitions technology, polarized, and mirror coated lenses. That is convenient and I will have the sunglasses back with the new lenses before my next trip to San Juan to watch the First Citizens Cup tournament.
