Stafford leads team gaining World experience

On the strength of their excellent
improvement in recent years, Cayman is sending for the second time a team of
boys to the World Junior Men’s Championships in Quito, Ecuador next week. The
players are Nick Cameron, Matthew Mudeen, Alex Frazer and Cameron Stafford.

Coach Dean Watson said: “These boys
represent our best under-19 players in Cayman. Last time Cayman participated in
this event in Zurich, Switzerland two years ago, they came 28th place out of 32
countries, although they beat some teams who were higher ranked than them.”

The event begins with an individual
tournament with some players ranked in the top 30 in the world. Then the team
event begins. Three team members plus one reserve.

Watson added: “This event allows
our players to experience the very best juniors in the world. For the likes of
Cameron Stafford and Alex Frazer this will benefit them as they come to the end
of their junior playing days.

“Stuart Walker Hersant have been
very supportive towards the elite juniors in Cayman for some years now and
without their support this participation wouldn’t be possible.  Another supporting company, BDO, have also
stepped up to the plate recognising the importance of elite players and we’re
really grateful.”
