    Antigua strengthens Caribbean Cup roster

    Peter Byers (yellow jersey) is expected to feature in Antigua & Barbuda’s 2014 Caribbean Cup campaign.

     

    ST. JOHN’S, Antigua & Barbuda -- The Antigua & Barbuda Football Association has identified eight overseas players who have committed to represent the country in Caribbean Cup first-round play next week.

    General Secretary Gordon Derrick named England-based Calaum Jahraldo-Martin (winger/forward), Nathaniel Jarvis (forward) and Keiran Murtagh (midfielder) as three of the competitors.

    Midfielders Quinton Griffith, Josh Parker and Akeem Thomas, defender Connor Peters and goalkeeper Brenton Mohammed (goalkeeper) will also join the contingent of squad members from abroad.

    “There are five groups being played with everybody playing the same day because we are using the international dates so everybody has access to international players,” said Derrick. 

    From September 3-7, Antigua will host Group 5, which also contains Anguilla, the Dominican Republic and St. Vincent & the Grenadines.

    “I hear they (Anguilla) are bringing in international players so everybody is boosting their squads like St. Kitts and all the other groups so there is lots of excitement out about this version of the Caribbean Cup,” Derrick noted.

    Senior team regulars Peter Byers, Tamarley Thomas and Lawson Robinson are also expected to be present, when the Benna Boys open their campaign Wednesday against the Dominican Republic at the Antigua Recreation Grounds.
