Sealy and Suberan combine for chance

Two top local players may get a shot to tryout for Major League Soccer scouts at the inaugural Caribbean Combine.

The Cayman Islands Football Association nominated Bodden Town goalkeeper Ramon Sealy and Cayman Athletic’s Matthew Suberan as the Cayman Islands players to attend the combine.

“It’s a great opportunity for them to try and see how they’d perform between all of the Caribbean prolific players,” said football association technical director Marcos Tinoco.

The Caribbean Combine was announced last month and is newly created through a partnership between the MLS and the Caribbean Football Union.

It is meant to give the region’s elite 18-21 year old players an opportunity to tryout in front of MLS coaches and scouts with the possibility of being invited to the larger adidas MLS Combine, in Florida.

Sealy and Suberan have only have been nominated by CIFA as the local players who would best fit the criteria Combine officials are looking for. It is now up to the Combine organizers to decide whether they will actually invite either player to the Combine.

“I hope they can do good and be seen by MLS coaches, scouts, it’s a great opportunity,” said Tinoco. The Combine is slated to be held Jan. 2-5 in Antigua.
