“The team has been in training for some considerable time,” noted BVIFA President, Andy Bickerton. “The grouping is part of a new initiative to put teams into more evenly matched groups.”

The Captain is Guillaume Parkins and he felt that the build-up has gone well and is feeling confident that the team would do well. He said, “Everything has gone well, we are very disciplined and looking forward to a successful championship.”

The full squad includes: Declan Rose, Alexander Keen, Alejandro Santos, Giovanni Grant, Denvin Jones, Glenford Prentice, Shamsi Dore, Luka Cherwell, Kahlil Farrington, George Rowe, Robert Medway, Miquel Marshall, Marcus Butler, Tyler Forbes, Jalen Prentice, Jake Forbes and Justin Smith.
