Rundell Winchester, 21, joins T2 on loan from Central FC from the TT Pro League, the top flight in Trinidad and Tobago.

Winchester is a member of the Trinidad and Tobago national team, having earned four caps since making his debut for his national side in October 2013.  Most recently he appeared with C.S. Visé of the Belgian Third Division, where he scored 2 goals in 4 appearances after joining the club in July 2014, returning to Central FC in January after a contract dispute that left him in out of action until the opening of the January transfer window due to having his return blocked by FIFA.

Prior to joining C.S. Visé, Winchester played for Central FC from 2012-2014, where he scored 19 goals in 34 appearances (26 starts), leading his team to the 2014 Goal Shield and being named the tournament's best player and Golden Boot winner.  In league play, he helped Central FC finish second in the table and was named the Young Player of the Season and scored the Goal of the Season for 2014.

Winchester played for semi-pro club Stokely Vale of the National Super League in 2011-2012, the second division in Trinidad and Tobago, scoring 9 goals in 8 appearances.  His performances in the Toyota Classic and FA Trophy tournaments put him in the national spotlight, leading to him joining Central FC in December 2012.

Winchester is a speedy, physical winger with some pass-first tendencies, Winchester can play on either side and has good ball control with both his head and feet, he appears prefers to finish with his left foot, while distributing with either.

Another example of the prototypical T2 player, Winchester in another player that could eventually work his way into the first team with strong showings at the USL level.
