Jamaica opens minicamp Tuesday

Montego Bay United forward Dino Williams (green jersey) was called up for a Jamaica training camp that will be conducted January 10-12, 2017, in Kingston.

KINGSTON, Jamaica – Jamaica head coach Theodore Whitmore named Monday a 23-player squad for a three-day minicamp in preparation for next month’s international friendlies at the United States (February 3) and Honduras (February 16).

The squad, consisting entirely of players from the domestic Red Stripe Premier League, will convene Tuesday for sessions at the National Stadium East Facility. It features the Montego Bay United attacking duo of Allan Ottey (1 goal) and Dino Williams (2 goals), who combined to score three goals in the 2015/16 Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League.

“It may be only a three day camp, however, I feel this is a wonderful opportunity to me and the rest of the coaching staff to evaluate who are my core local players moving forward and who can best add to this team,” said Whitmore.

All players will return back to their clubs on January 13.

Jamaica will compete in the 2016/17 Scotiabank CFU Men’s Caribbean Cup finals in June and the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup in July.
