GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands – As one of only two goalkeepers to be extended an invitation to the first-ever Major League Soccer/Caribbean Combine, Cayman Islands international Ramon Sealy is eager to display his talents and prove he is ready to take the next step in his career. 

The 22-year-old will be among 24 players from 16 Caribbean countries to work out for league scouts, January 2-4, at the Antigua Recreation Ground in St. John’s, Antigua and Barbuda.

“This is a great opportunity for me, one that I have been looking forward to since I started playing, Sealy told  “It’s a chance to try to be professional and I am hoping to really do well once I get there.”

Sealy currently competes for local-side Bodden Town after three years playing university football in the United States with the University of Western Florida, where he earned two straight All-Gulf South Conference First Team selections (2011, 2012).

In 2011, he appeared in three 2014 World Cup Qualifying games, taking the field twice against El Salvador and once against Suriname.

Players at the combine will compete in games and participate in a training session.  Those who impress will be selected to attend the annual adidas MLS Player Combine in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, January 10-14.
