1. How does it feel to have been selected for such an elite squad?

It feels well-earned and I feel that it is a great opportunity.

2. How will you prepare for the competition?

I will keep coming to training, doing fitness and working hard.

3. When did you start playing football and what prompted you to start?

I started when I was 9 years old and what prompted me was that every school break my brother was going to a different football camp and it just seemed to interest me, so, once I finally tried it, I loved it.

4. What are your plans for your time in St. Lucia besides Football?

I hope to bond with the girls and to pay attention to everything that I am told to play well.

5. Which Bermudian athlete, coach or sporting figure do you admire most and why?

David Bascome, because even though he has been through a lot of things in his past, he still motivates people to do their best and teaches people how to play better football.


The CONCACAF Caribbean U17 Qualifier will take place this month in St Lucia, with the Bermuda team set to match up against St Lucia on August 22nd, Antigua & Barbuda on August 24th, and Aruba on August 26th.
