Date:

MONROVIA – He’s under 20, yet, he’s making name for himself and his team-Gardnersville FC in Liberia’s Football League second tier.

Lyndon Ponnie, Jr. is manning the defensive midfield of Gardbersville FC. He’s the Michael Essien and Claude Makelele type. Often considered cynical, aggressive, and always on time.

Football experts in Liberia believe the midfielder holds the key to the fortunes and successes of his team that is also blessed with a whole lot of beautiful players.

Lyndon, Jr.

Lyndon, Jr. plays alongside other wonderful players in Gardnersville FC midfield. He has become a shield to the defense and goalkeeper, harrying defenders and making his colleague behind him fine.

Lyndon has expressed his admiration for a lot of top European midfielders – but said he’s awaiting his own time. He praised his colleagues on the Gardnerville FC squad. He told Smart News Liberia, they are ready to move to the next level of their game; adding that Gardnersville is a family that is led by a unique coach.

The brilliance of Lyndon and his teammates is reaping positive results. Another soccer expert in the country who has followed the rise of Lyndon says the growing defensive midfielder is always on time and is always present at the right place to make interceptions, blocks, and tackles.

Others football watchers in Monrovia say he provides stability at the back and provides a smoother transition from defense to attack.

Gardnersville FC comprises talented young players who could burst onto the international level in the shortest possible time, said another soccer analyst, adding that the rise of Lyndon and cohorts, could shoot a tram to Liberia A league.
