Four for England


Share post:

FOUR NATIONAL junior footballers are on their way to London for trials with two British football academies.

Elijah Downey and Ackeel Applewaithe of Paradise Football Club, Notre Dame’s Antone Greaves and Nicoli Brathwaite of Lambeth Tigers were given the opportunity after a visit to London for the Easter holiday.

The opportunity arose through a pilot project of the Barbados Football Association and Crystal Palace Football Club to provide international exposure with the possibility of attaining football scholarships.

Downey and Greaves will be attending the English Premier League Club Crystal Palace while Brathwaite and Applewaithe will train with an elite academy for one month between July and August.  (RG)
