Feb 28, 2012 Sports Comments Off on Golden Jaguars Squad announced Leon Cort out, JP Rodrigues back
Six of the younger players who were part of the recent four (4) game
development tour of the Caribbean has earned call ups to the ‘Golden Jaguars’ Guyana’s Senior National team for the International friendly against Guatemala on Wednesday (tomorrow) evening.
Midfielders Konata Manning, Kester Jacobs and 18-year-old Trayon Bobb along with two other teenagers Colin Nelson and Pele’s Sheldon Holder are included in the Golden Jaguars team.
Speaking about their inclusion, Head Coach Jamaal Shabazz commended their efforts to get into the team. “These guys have earned the right by their efforts and performance and have given us more options in our selection process.”
The Jaguars will be without the English based trio of mid-fielder/left-back Christopher Bourne and the Cort brothers (Leon and Carl) who all have club commitments.
Also speaking to the Golden Jaguars media was defender Leon Cort who scored that unforgettable winning goal versus Trinidad in November and he explained to the Guyanese public why he won’t be coming while wishing the team the best of luck.
“Due to a long back log of games due to the weather in England and games being cancelled and rescheduled I’m unable to attend this up and coming friendly with my team (Charlton Athletic) looking to maintain their position at the top of the league (League One) at this crucial phase of the season .However I wish all the boys good luck for the Guatemala fixture and other huge games we have coming up”, Cort said.
Star striker Gregory ‘Jackie Chan’ Richardson is back, dispelling rumours of a rift between him and Coach Shabazz.
Also making a return to International football after a year’s absence is US based defender John Paul ‘JP’ Rodrigues.
Rodrigues while playing for his North American Soccer League (NASL) side Tampa Bay Rowdies was injured for the back end of last season, thus missed all of the teams successful second round qualifying matches.
While promising attacker Vurlon Mills has not been considered since he has only now recovered from the injury he suffered two months ago while playing in the T&T Pro League.
The full squad: Christopher Nurse (Captain), Jake Newton, Ricky Shakes, Shawn Beveney – UK based. Richard Reynolds, Kester Jacobs Anthony Abrams, Kanata Manning, Gregory Richardson, Anthony Benfield, Travis Grant, Sheldon Holder – Guyana based.
Walter Moore, Trayon Bobb, Colin Nelson, Kayode McKinnon, Charles Pollard, Ronson Williams – Trinidad based. John Rodrigues – USA based and Taylor Benjamin – Canada based.
Fans are once again reminded that Wednesday’s game will be streamed live on the internet at www.guyana-events-live.com.
