ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - The National U12 Boys Squad will be participating in the 3rd Annual GPS Caribbean Showcase Football Tournament in Bayamon, Puerto Rico from Saturday January 26 until Monday January 28, 2018.

BVI Football Association (BVIFA) coaches, Cassandra Gregg and John Riley, will be accompanying the team.

According to Mr Riley, the trip will offer a fantastic opportunity for the boys to continue their development and experience a highly competitive tournament.

“We have a talented group travelling to enjoy and compete at the showcase and they have been progressing steadily tactically, technically, physically and mentally,” noted Riley.

“The tournament will provide a friendly but competitive learning environment that will further their education both on and off the pitch as they see how other teams and players conduct themselves before, during and after games. The showcase will also be a great way for them to make new friends, witness different cultures and thoroughly enjoy themselves.”

The squad includes: Johari Lacey, Jefferson Frank, T’Khoy Morton, Omari Simmons, Ryan Lettsome, Azarni Callwood, Derion Hodge, Jaden and Jadon Abrams, Joel Mars, Lewis Munn, Adrain Padilla, Nicolas Haycraft, Ollie Henderson, Jeriek Samuel and Deshaun Richardson.

The tournament has seen over 100 teams participate in 2016 and 2017. These teams were from various US States – Rhode Island, New York, Chicago, Florida and Boston as well as from countries such as the Dominican Republic, US Virgin Islands, Costa Rica, Canada and of course the [British] Virgin Islands.
