THE BARBADOS NATIONAL Under-15 football team will get to show their skills when they go up against their regional counterparts in four friendlies ahead of the CONCACAF Under-15 Championships next month in Florida.

The young Tridents are set to take on Dominica this evening at the Wildey AstroTurf. They will face St Lucia later this week and Grenada and St Kitts and Nevis next week.

Head coach Renaldo Gilkes noted the matches would definitely show where the youngsters were at, and how much more work they would need to put in.

“We have been training hard for this. We had some games earlier this year at the Soualiga tournament in St Maarten where we finished third. We’ve practiced hard for this, and it’s only to execute going forward,” he said.

The squad has been divided into two teams.

Team Blue: Shaquan Phillips, Joshua James, Hashim Brewster, Andre Applewhaite, Nathan Skeete, Shaquanie Phillips, Thierry Gale, Jaylan Gilkes, Rashon Gittens, Jamahli Hutson, Abiola Grant, Taijeo James, Axel Funk, Kyle Lewis, Ethan Taylor and Nadre Butcher.

Team Gold: Michael Chandler, Ishawn Babb, Mario Lavoie, O’Shea Grant, Nazario Adamson, Lemar Catlyn, Dejuan Walcott, Devonte Richards, Jamol Williams, Joshua Tempro, Kelon Carrington, Aaron Cumberbatch, Shai Prescod, Ryan Lashley, Tristan Brancroft. (RA)
