MLS chance for senior ballers
The dream of playing Major League Soccer (MLS) is just a couple kicks away for at least one Caribbean player.
Three of Barbados’ senior national footballers, goalkeeper Kishmar Primus, winger Ackeel Applewhaite and midfielder Omani Leacock are among 50 players from around the region, who were selected to participate in the MLS combine training session at the Barbados Football Association’s Wildey Turf on Wednesday with the hopes of signing a pro contract.
It’s the first time that such a programme was introduced on Caribbean soil, where over four days the players travelled to Jamaica and Barbados with the opportunity to impress top coaches and scouts, who work closely with the biggest soccer league in the United States. (AGB)
