Caribbean dreams!

Life after Spurs can vary in so many ways for our ex-players - but few can say they are living the tropical lifestyle while still heavily involved in the game quite like Terry Fenwick.

Caribbean dreams!

Life after Spurs can vary in so many ways for our ex-players - but few can say they are living the tropical lifestyle while still heavily involved in the game quite like Terry Fenwick.

The former defender, who made over 100 appearances for us between 1987 and 1993, speaks exclusively to the June issue of hotspur about how he's made it big in Trinidad & Tobago!

Fenwick is now the manager of San Juan Jabloteh, one of the country's most successful clubs, and tells our official monthly magazine just how the opportunity came about.

"As Jimmy Greaves would say, football really is a funny old game, and I certainly didn't imagine I'd end up managing a football team in the Caribbean," he says.

"Bobby Robson brought his Newcastle United side down to Trinidad in the 1999/2000 season and recommended me to a local professional team.

"I pretty much went through the motions for Bobby and made the trip to Trinidad & Tobago, but after spending a week assessing the situation decided I liked it here and committed to a one-year deal as manager.

"Unsurprisingly, the year stretched to two and now it's almost nine I've been out here, and we have led San Juan Jabloteh to back-to-back league championships twice and seven cup finals."

It's a fascinating story not to be missed, and you can read this, as well as an exclusive interview with Aaron Lennon, in the June issue of hotspur, out now.
