A 20-member squad has been selected to represent Barbados at the Caribbean Football Union Under-17 World Cup qualifiers.
Barbados will be in action from July 16 to 23 in the Dominican Republic, where they will come up against the hosts along with Guyana and Antigua.
Three players with Premiership experience headline the team which will be vying for a top spot to compete at next year’s Under-17 World Cup in Chile.
Notre Dame duo Rajohn Hawksworth and Omani Leacock, who enjoyed debut seasons this year in the top flight, will partner with Michael Forde Jr, who had his baptism in the Premier League last year with Youth Milan.
A lot of the offensive responsibilities will fall on the shoulders of Foundation School front man Antone Greaves, who has been on training stints with European giants AC Milan and MLS outfit Philadelphia Union.
The outfit also features highly rated youngsters Torian Went and Keishon Gill, who had brief training stints with AC Milan and Blackburn Rovers, respectively. (ROG)
