Jamaica defeated Trinidad & Tobago 2-0 in the Final of the Shell Caribbean Cup in Kingston, Jamaica in May 1991. Both countries had automatically qualified for the seven-team Final tournament. Trinidad & Tobago had knocked out Guyana in the Semi-Finals, and Jamaica defeated St. Lucia.

The Qualifying Groups were won by Guyana (3-team South American Coast Group involving Surinam and Aruba); Dominican Republic (Greater Antilles Group involving Haiti and Puerto Rico); Cayman Islands (Leeward Islands Group involving St. Kitts & Nevis and British Virgin Islands); St. Lucia (Windward Islands Group involving Montserrat and Anguilla); Martinique (2-team French Department Group involving French Guiana).

Montserrat’s National Holiday is on St. Patrick’s Day like Ireland and most are descendent from Irish indentured servants and African slaves with even those of African descent speaking Irish at one stage like most on the island at the time (1600s to 1800). Kingston, Jamaica shares a name with Kingstown (Dun Laoghaire) in Ireland.

About the Caribbean Cup

The Shell Caribbean Cup is a Regional Soccer Tournament organised by the Caribbean Football Union. It also doubled as the Qualifying Tournament for the CONCACAF Gold Cup. Both were first played for in 1991, although there were previous attempts at creating Regional Tournaments.
