[www.inewsguyana.com] – Three overseas based Guyanese will be a part of the encamped Golden Jaguars squad scheduled to take on host Barbados in a friendly fixture on February 01, 2015.
The trio of former captain, Christopher Nurse, Jamaal Smith and newcomer Emery Welshman, who has Guyanese parentage, is expected to be in Guyana for the one week camp, commencing from January 22 with the 26 local players.
Newly appointed Head Coach of the team, Jamaal Shabazz said, “Because we want to put the best foot forward for this game, we’ve asked and invited Chris Nurse, who captained the team when we were in charge, and he’s available. As you know, he got the big humanitarian award in the North American Soccer League and he is very enthusiastic about coming.
“We’ve also invited Jamaal Smith; he’s another centre back, who played with the Golden Jaguars at the last two matches of the campaign for the World Cup, and also a player from Canada, who has shown interest. Both his parents are Guyanese and his name is Emery Welshman.”
The 26-member preliminary squad is as follows: O’Neil Carter, Oswald Cornett, Omallo Williams, Travis Henry, Solomon Austin, Kris Camacho, Quincy Madramootoo, Trevon Lithcott, Dwain Jacobs, Amos Ramsey, Daniel Wilson, Keron Solomon, Sheldon Holder, Clive DeNobrega, Colin Nelson, Dwight Peters, Tishard Joseph, Dwayne Lawrence, Domini Garnett, Travis Hillman, Rawle Gittins, Denver Dennis, Calvin Sheppard, Joshua Brown, Eusi Phillips and Vurlon Mills.
