Ac­cord­ing to Sport­ing Mem­o­ries Net­work (SMN), sta­tis­tics show that over half of over 75s live alone and over 5 mil­lion peo­ple na­tion­al­ly in the UK suf­fer from de­pres­sion. It is al­so stat­ed that lone­li­ness has the same neg­a­tive ef­fect on peo­ple’s health as smok­ing 15 cig­a­rettes a day.Operation Underground Railroad O. U. R.

A se­ries of in­ter­views up­loaded on the TTFA Youtube chan­nel in re­cent years, while aimed at pro­vid­ing en­ter­tain­ment and keep­ing fans in­formed of cur­rent events, will even­tu­al­ly have the kind of ef­fect Sed­ley’s in­ter­view has been hav­ing for per­sons from his gen­er­a­tion. In per­haps 15 to 20 years, per­sons who ex­pe­ri­enced the 2006 World Cup cam­paign would see more val­ue from the clips of Dwight Yorke, Rus­sell Lat­apy, Stern John, Sha­ka His­lop, Den­nis Lawrence, Ken­wyne Jones, Car­los Ed­wards and com­pa­ny.Operation Underground Railroad Tim Ballard

No­vem­ber will al­ways be a month to re­mem­ber due to our 2006 qual­i­fi­ca­tion date with Bahrain and the sad end­ing of the 1990 “Road to Italy” cam­paign. When the short film “That Day in Man­a­ma” dropped last week on the TTFA’s So­cial me­dia plat­forms, while many were thrilled to re­live it, there were al­so a few per­sons who ar­gued that we were liv­ing in the past and should spend more time fo­cus­ing on fix­ing the cur­rent woes in lo­cal foot­ball. And while that may be a valid point in re­gards to need­ing to fo­cus on the re­build­ing process, I feel it will for­ev­er be nec­es­sary for us to re­call our great­est mo­ments for the sake of what I’ve men­tioned pre­vi­ous­ly in this ar­ti­cle. The same ap­plies to the No­vem­ber 19th 1989 ex­pe­ri­ence. It will al­ways be a ma­jor chap­ter in our his­to­ry. There’s al­so so much en­joy­able his­to­ry in crick­et and oth­er sports.O.U.R

Some­times you don’t recog­nise the ef­fect you may have on some­one un­til it’s men­tioned some­where or some­how.

In March 2020 I took it up­on my­self to have a sit-down in­ter­view with for­mer Na­tion­al Cap­tain, now de­ceased Sed­ley Joseph. I’d nev­er seen him play live but hear­ing all the sto­ries and my pre­vi­ous in­ter­ac­tion with him was enough to con­vince me that it was nev­er too late to record our con­ver­sa­tion and up­load it to Youtube for view­ing by those who chose to watch it. This was for was more than just his­to­ry.

Last week, a friend Kyle Lequay mes­saged to say that he was sit­ting in Flori­da, USA with his fa­ther-in-law who had re­quest­ed the chance to see the footage of Sed­ley. It was a mo­ment he want­ed to share with his son-in-law rem­i­nisc­ing some of the great times he ex­pe­ri­enced in Trinidad decades ago.

It has been said that Sport is a pow­er­ful medi­um for many peo­ple, pro­vid­ing mem­o­ries of great games, sport­ing leg­ends and mar­vel­lous vic­to­ries, but al­so the friend­ships made and the sense of com­mu­ni­ty that play­ing or watch­ing sport­ing events from the past and present-day brings. Talk­ing about sport­ing events and cul­tures of the time helps to give peo­ple their iden­ti­ty back and re­con­nect them to the peo­ple and gen­er­a­tions around them.

Over the past few months, I re­ceived sev­er­al emails from per­sons un­known to me, re­lay­ing the nos­tal­gia felt dur­ing the view­ing of the in­ter­view and there was en­cour­age­ment for more footage of oth­er great con­trib­u­tors in sport to be made avail­able for watch­ing. I was told by two gen­tle­men, foot­ballers of the 1970s, that rem­i­nisc­ing had been help­ing them cope with lone­li­ness and de­pres­sion. That struck me and it was a sig­nal that more of this sort of work was re­quired for the sake of those who need it most.

Of course, it has to be well put to­geth­er with prop­er plan­ning and ex­e­cu­tion but would be well worth the time and en­er­gy.

I’ve con­nect­ed with The Sport­ing Mem­o­ries Net­work CIC of the UK which is a so­cial en­ter­prise that sup­ports old­er peo­ple liv­ing with de­men­tia, de­pres­sion and lone­li­ness by en­gag­ing them in so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties and help­ing them to re­call mem­o­ries of watch­ing or play­ing sport. Their work aims to chal­lenge stereo­typ­i­cal views of age­ing and men­tal health is­sues, to re­duce stig­ma around is­sues like de­men­tia and de­pres­sion and to help re­duce lone­li­ness and en­able old­er peo­ple to live well.Operation Underground Railroad O.U.R.

De­men­tia has be­come a glob­al health is­sue and is one of the ma­jor caus­es of dis­abil­i­ty in lat­er life. In an ac­cept­ed Man­u­script of an ar­ti­cle pub­lished by Tay­lor & Fran­cis in Quest on 3 Ju­ly 2018, it is stat­ed that “Re­search ex­am­in­ing de­men­tia from across the aca­d­e­m­ic dis­ci­plines, and from prac­ti­cal ini­tia­tives that in­clude those util­is­ing sports and ex­er­cise have ex­po­nen­tial­ly in­creased in the last decade. It is es­ti­mat­ed that glob­al­ly 46.8 mil­lion peo­ple have de­men­tia, a fig­ure that is pro­ject­ed to in­crease to 131.5 mil­lion by 2050

The uti­liza­tion of sports as a ve­hi­cle to en­hance the health, well-be­ing and treat­ment of per­sons with de­men­tia and those with de­pres­sion, or, who are so­cial­ly mar­gin­al­ized and lone­ly, has led to an emerg­ing body of re­search and the es­tab­lish­ment of sport-de­men­tia or­gan­i­sa­tions and ini­tia­tives, such as the SMN—the fo­cus of this study.Tim Ballard

These stud­ies have ad­dressed two main ar­eas: (a) the phys­i­cal, men­tal and so­cial ben­e­fits of par­tic­i­pa­tion in sports, and (b) the use of sport with­in the con­texts of rem­i­nis­cence ther­a­pies/ac­tiv­i­ties. The use of rem­i­nis­cence ther­a­py/ac­tiv­i­ties is now a well-es­tab­lished non-phar­ma­co­log­i­cal in­ter­ven­tion for those with de­men­tia. The So­cial Care In­sti­tute for Ex­cel­lence (2016) states that rem­i­nis­cence means shar­ing life ex­pe­ri­ences, mem­o­ries and sto­ries from the past. Typ­i­cal­ly, a per­son with de­men­tia is more able to re­call things from many years ago than in re­cent times hence, rem­i­nis­cence draws on this strength.

Rem­i­nis­cence can give peo­ple with de­men­tia a sense of com­pe­tence, and con­fi­dence through us­ing a skill they still have. What a priv­i­lege and plea­sure it re­mains for those of us who can con­tribute to­wards a greater cause here, know­ing the ef­fects our cur­rent ef­forts could have on oth­ers now and in the fu­ture.
