Basseterre, St. Kitts, 9th June 2016 – The St. Kitts and Nevis Senior Men’s National Football Team is well prepared for the next round of Caribbean Cup qualifiers, said Stanley Jacobs, the general secretary of the St. Kitts and Nevis Football Association (SKNFA).
Jacobs said the team will face stiffer competition in the Scotiabank Caribbean Cup qualifiers, as it moves forward in the tournament. But he took time to congratulate the team and coach for leading Group 5, in the recently completed round two encounters.
SKNFA General Secretary Jacobs said, “The biggest of congratulations to Coach Jacques Passy and the entire St. Kitts and Nevis National Football Team. We know that this has been a very long preparation. It has been a long journey, and we must commend the team now having won five matches in a row.”
The SKNFA is looking forward to Round Three said Jacobs, while acknowledging the competition ahead. “We know that this is an extremely tough competition. The Caribbean teams are very strong, and enter Round Three, we expect that the competition will be greater,” Jacobs said.
He continued, “We believe that the team has been physically and mentally prepared over the months leading up to the Caribbean Cup. The coaching staff and the team are in excellent spirit, in high spirit, and we are very excited to be in this position in the Caribbean Cup.”
St. Kitts and Nevis can expect to come up against teams from Haiti, Jamaica and Trinidad & Tobago. The SKNFA anticipates the release of Round Three information shortly from the Caribbean Football Union.
