    GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands – At next year’s CONCACAF Women’s Under-20 Championship, the Cayman Islands plans to deliver solid performances on home soil.

     The tournament host was drafted into Group B along with Mexico, Trinidad & Tobago and Honduras at draw and logo unveiling on Tuesday.

    “This is great exposure for our team and our country,” said a beaming Martha Godet, the Director of Cayman Islands Women’s programme.  “We are just going to give it our best.”

    To bolster its chances of progressing in the competition, Cayman plans on calling up some of its foreign-based players.

    “We have seven players overseas at high school and university coming home to help,” Godet noted.  “There will be a training camp later this month and they will be joining us.” 

    Cayman will make its debut at the finals of a CONCACAF Women’s Under-20 Championship, when it meets Mexico on January 10 at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex.

    The top three teams advance to the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup next August in Canada.

    In 2010, the Cayman Islands qualified for the finals of the CONCACAF Women’s Under-17 Championship, where it had a win and two losses in three games.
