BARBADOS’ YOUNG FOOTBALLERS will get yet another opportunity to showcase their talents to international scouts.
That’s because the island is set to host the Barbados Caribbean International Youth Soccer Tournament and Showcase from December 28 to January 5.
Speaking at a Press conference at the Coconut Court Hotel yesterday, Jack Bovell, director of the Barbados Soccer Academy (BSA) and organizer of the event, said they were expecting teams from England, North America, Latin America and the Caribbean.
He said the one-week tournament would feature divisions ranging from Under-11 up to Under-20.
Bert Lobo, an international football scout who resides in Canada, will be at the tournament, and he believes there is a wealth of talent here.
