By Beverly Vernon: 29 years old Ian ‘Yello’ Gaynair was born and raised in Belize City.
He started his football career at a very young age by playing every evening after school. Gaynair grew up playing with different teams like Kremandala, FC Belize, and Kraal Road.
While playing football, he also attended Wesley and St John’s College and majored in Business Administration.
Today, he works as a second class clerk at the Supreme Court of Belize. Presently, Gaynair plays for the Belmopan Bandits as a right and center defense and he says that his passion for the sport helps him to manage his skills better.
Gaynair also plays for the Belize National team (the Belize Jaguars) and his goal is to win the PLB tournament and move on to the CONCACAF level with his team.
Hats off to the player Carles Puyol who inspired Gaynair to be what he is today. His message to the youths growing up today is: “dream big and follow your dream every morning when you wake up”.
