Reggae Boyz leave for CONCACAF Beach Soccer Championship today
Jamaica’s beach soccer team is scheduled to leave the island today to take part in the 2015 CONCACAF Beach Soccer Championship in El Salvador.
The Jamaicans will open their group stage against Puerto Rico on March 28.
The team will square off with Belize the following day.
The beach Reggae Boyz will then take on hosts El Salvador in their final group game.
Head coach Andrew Price, who recently returned from a CONCACAF beach soccer coaching seminar in Miami Florida, says his team is ready and rearing to go after training for some six to seven weeks in Port Royal.
The squad has been in camp for the past two weeks, and Price believes the team will go a step further this time around.
According to Price, at the last beach qualifying tournament they scored several goals but conceded a lot.
However, he says the team aims to get that right for these upcoming qualifiers and the objective is to get out of the group stages.
Most of the players that took part in the last qualifying tournament back in 2013 have returned, with the likes of Waterhouse striker Jermain Anderson, Rohan Reid of Tivoli Gardens and Kevin Wilson of Arnett Gardens.
