Following his super success in the UK league, in 2001 Tobago honoured their hero naming the newly built sports stadium(near Scarborough) the Dwight Yorke Stadium. It was first used to host matches of the FIFA Under 17 World Cup tournament held in Trinidad and Tobago in that year. Dwight has been named Sportsman of the Year in Trinidad and Tobago but his biggest glory was as part of the team Trinidad and Tobago (including the coach and technical staff) who were awarded the Trinidad and Tobago Chaconia Medal of Gold in an emotionalceremony before thousands of fans.
Warriors warm up Rotenburg
Dwight was a student of Signal Hill Senior Comprehensive School- located off the Claude Noel Highway just south of Scarborough, Tobago's Capital. It was at Signal Hill "compree" that Dwight first blossomed as a footballer. His school coach Bertille St.Clair still runs the very successful St.Clair Coaching School which spots young talent and trains them for the future.
When he comes to Tobago Dwight can be seen in his old neighbourhood "liming" with the boys ... just around the corner from PennySavers Supermarket in Canaan, where his mother Grace maintains her home. Visitors to Tobago - sun lovers and snorkelers at the famous Buccoo Reef .... will see a glass-bottom boat called Yorke's Pride.... which offers snorkeling trips to the reef from Store Bay.
