Following on the success of the junior national team’s success in Jamaica, the senior team is traveling to Trinidad & Tobago for the Senior Caribbean Championships August 17th-27th. Digicel is the lead sponsor of this year’s team which is comprised of Micah Franklin, Chris Stout, Andrew Stout, Stephen Smith and Anthony Fellowes.
Leading the squad is recently turned touring professional, Franklin. Franklin has been training at the National Squash Academy in Toronto under the guise of former World number 1, Jonathan Power. Franklin has moved up the Professional rankings to #245 and looks to move into the top eight in the Caribbean ranks.
Chris Stout is no stranger to success in Caribbean Championships, he was a key member of the National team that captured the 2010 Men’s Caribbean Team Title in St. Vincent. He had a full schedule last summer representing the national team at the Island Games (Isle of Wight), Junior Caribbean’s (Guyana), Senior Caribbean’s (Cayman Islands) and World Men’s Teams (Paderborn, Germany).
Andrew Stout is making his inaugural appearance at a Senior Caribbean Championships. Stout has made six appearances at Junior Caribbean Championships. Stout’s training schedule has been nothing short of rigorous, his persistence and tactical play are a welcomed addition to the national team.
Smith is also making his inaugural appearance at a Senior Caribbean Championships. Smith has competed as a junior in Guyana, Bahamas, Trinidad and Tobago and Barbados. Smith competes in the circuit of tournaments hosted at BSRA and had a strong showing at this past Digicel National Championships.
Fellowes demonstrated some exciting play last year at the Caribbean’s in Cayman Islands. Fellowes followed that up with a steady year in local tournaments. His consistent play is a major asset to this team and will be an important factor as Bermuda battles with some of the heavyweights in the Caribbean.
The Bermuda Squad will be competing with teams from Barbados, Venezuela, OECS, Guyana, Jamaica, Cayman Islands and Trinidad and Tobago.
