June 14, 2019

Being selected for Bermuda’s Gold Cup team at only 19-years-old is no easy task, and Quinaceo Hunt said he is honoured to be the youngest member of our team, to play amongst the pros and represent the country.

Mr Hunt — one of three goalkeepers on our team — told Bernews, “I feel accomplished being the youngest to be picked from my country, to play amongst the pros that are in the team and everyone else,” adding that it it is a great learning experience for him and he plans to learn all he can.

Speaking on the young keeper, Bermuda goalkeeper coach John Moreira recently told Bernews, “I saw some good traits in him. He’s young, he’s 19; I think being around these other two more experienced goalkeepers is going to help him in his development.

“Being involved in this environment, this big cup that we’re going to be in right now with the Gold Cup, I think being in this environment is going to help him with different areas of his game.”

Bermuda’s team includes Nahki Wells, Dante Leverock, Jonte Smith, Reggie Lambe, Dale Eve, Oliver Jalen Harvey, Calon Minors, Roger Lee, Kacy Milan Butterfield, Jaylon Bather, Lejaun Simmons, Donte Brangman, Chikosi Basden, Zeiko Lewis, Willie Clemons, Jahquil Hill, Osagi Bascome, Cecoy Robinson, Justin Donawa, Wendell Tre Ming, Liam Evans, Marco Warren, and Quinaceo Hunt.

The Gombey Warriors will take on Haiti on June 16th in Costa Rica, then Costa Rica on June 20th in Dallas, and then match up against Nicaragua on June 24th in New Jersey, and in an effort to provide comprehensive coverage of Bermuda’s debut in this highly prestigious regional competition, Bernews has a dedicated reporter traveling with the team in order to bring all the latest action and insights, with the special coverage thanks to the support of Butterfield & Vallis, One Communications, and Bermuda Security Group.
