Anguilla’s under 20 football team in CONCACAF Championship

ANGUILLA—Special Ministerial Assistant Merrick Richardson has extended best wishes to the Under 20 National Female Football Team who are competing in the CONCACAF Women’s Under 20 Championship currently taking place in Curacao. The first game is against Martinique and the second against the Cayman Islands.

There are 20 players in the team with Team Manager Lenia Simpson and Head Coach Ahkeela Mollon. Prior to leaving, the team held a three week intense training camp to prepare. Before their departure Head Coach Ahkeela Mollon commented, “These girls have been working hard for the last nine months. I want to say to the Anguillian population and Anguillian football family, thanks for trusting us with your kids during this pandemic time.”
Midfielder Tiandra Carter said she and the other players were excited about representing the island in Curaçao. “We just hope to come back with six points…change the culture, bring something new to the table and make Anguilla proud, make ourselves proud and make our coach proud…make her see that she came in and made an impact on our lives,” Carter commented. Anguilla needs to win their group to advance to the Round of 16..
Richardson said, “I am confident the sacrifices and commitment shown over the past months of training will be rewarded. I have personally observed the team training a few times and above all else the skill on the field will be second to their pride, confidence and camaraderie these ladies show.”
