Errol McFarlane Jr. (born October 12, 1977) is a Trinidadian former footballer who played as a forward.

Club career

Youth and College

Born in Port of Spain, McFarlane attended Trinity College in his native Trinidad, and briefly attended Malick Secondary Comprehensive, before moving to the United States in 1995 to attend Nassau Community College. He transferred to Hofstra University in his sophomore year, and subsequently spent the next three years playing college soccer for the Pride.

Professional

McFarlane turned professional in 1999 with Defence Force in the TT Pro League, winning the inaugural league title in his first season. He won a second T&T PFL Championship winner's medal with San Juan Jabloteh in 2002 before signing with Al-Nejmeh in the Lebanese Professional League, where he quickly became one of the leading marksmen in that country. He finished the 2003/2004 season with 15 goals, helping the club to the league title and a place in the 2004 AFC Cup.

McFarlane has also played professionally in Iceland, for Fylkir and Breiðablik. After another brief stint in Lebanon with Al-Mabarrah and back home in Trinidad with St. Ann's Rangers, McFarlane signed a two-year deal with the Rochester Rhinos of the USL First Division on July 23, 2009,[1] but was let go after scoring only 2 goals in 12 appearances.

International career

McFarlane has made 38 appearances for the senior Trinidad and Tobago national football team. He was part of the qualifying team in the 2006 FIFA World Cup,[2] but was not selected in the final squad due to a late hamstring injury.

Personal life

Errol is the brother of fellow professional Shem McFarlane, who plays for his former club St. Ann's Rangers.
