Clarendon football team to visit Cayman

The Cayman Islands will see its first international football match since Hurricane Ivan when the Clarendon All Stars of Jamaica take on two local clubs, Scholars and Latinos in June.

The 18-man squad from the Jamaica parish of Clarendon arrives in Cayman on 8 June, and will kick off their two-match weekend tour with a game against FA Cup champions Latinos on 9 June. The next day they will take on Digicel Cup and league champions, Scholars.

All games will be played at the TE McField Annexe sports ground.

The Clarendon players were selected from eight major league clubs across the parish. Among them is the parish league’s leading goal scorer, Jamie Fothergill, who has 13 goals, and he will get support from Dwayne Ballantyne, who scored 10 goals this season.

Clarendon Football Association 3rd Vice President Ewan Scott, General Secretary, Dave Meikle, Treasurer Garrett Williams, Manager Lance Robinson, and Coach Garfield Robinson will travel with the team.
