STRIKER MARK McCAMMON has hit top form as he prepares to join the Bajan
Pride for the finals of the Digicel Caribbean Cup - the signal of football
supremacy in the region.
The tall, powerfully-built McCammon had the honour of scoring the first
goal with a volley as his team Donaster Rovers had a 3-0 win over Huddersfield
at the Keepmoat Stadium in the English League 1 yesterday.
Another Barbadian player, Jonathan Forte, was also
brilliant. He supplied a fine pass which Paul Heffernan latched on to
and scored the second goal in the 47th minute. Four minutes later, Forte
got himself on the scoresheet soon after following another fine move.
McCammon will be joined by Paul Ifill, Louis Soares and Neil Harvey among
the list of 18 players when the Barbados Football Association announces
the team today.
The four are due to arrive on the island this weekend and will join the
full squad in Port-of-Spain early next week. Ifill is a playmaker who
last played for Sheffield United in the English Premier League. He has
been out of form in the Premiership and was placed on the transfer market.
The 21-year-old Soares, who is a fleet-footed winger with Aldershot Town
in the Conference, was identified by Ifill and drafted into the team.
Harvey is a talented striker who plays for non-league Wrexford. He represented
the national team at the junior level and got rave revues.
Meanwhile, lanky striker Kenroy Skinner has been left out of the squad,
while Michael Forde has pulled out with a leg injury.
