ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – Kevin Fisher has joined an elite group, as he recently became the latest footballer to benefit from the British Virgin Islands Football Association’s (BVIFA) Scholarship Programme.

“In the last 3 years or so the BVIFA has sent three young men and two young women to Junior Colleges and now, today, we have another player deserving of our support through the BVIFA Scholarship Programme,” commented BVIFA President, Mr. Andy Bickerton.

19 year old National Team player, Kevin Fisher, who has come up through various BVIFA Programmes, will be attending Otero Junior College in Colorado, USA and joins the likes of Trevor Peters, Joel Fahie, Christopher Telemaque, Kezia Gumbs and Sapphire Flax-Charles in benefitting from the Association’s Scholarship Programme since its inception back in 2012.

Women’s National Player, Sharlene Pond also received support from the BVIFA.

“I would like to thank the BVIFA and the Executive for giving me the opportunity. I intend to take full advantage of the Programme, make the best of it and also represent the Territory with pride” noted Fisher.

Fisher won’t be joining the College until the end of the summer, in time for the American Soccer Season, but after he has taken part in the World Cup 2018 Qualifiers against Dominica at the end of March.
