‘Lady Jags’ pay courtesy call on Minister Garrido-Lowe
Guyana’s senior national Women’s team, the ‘Lady Jags’, on Monday paid a courtesy call on Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs Minister, Valerie Garrido- Lowe, as they prepare to compete in the CONCACAF Caribbean Women’s Qualifiers later this week.
In the company of Guyana Football Federation’s Technical Director Ian Greenwood and Head Coach Dr. Ivan Joseph, the female footballers engaged in cordial exchanges with the Minister at her Quamina Street, Georgetown, office.
The Minister encouraged the players, especially the foreign-based ones, to learn more about Guyana, noting that the hinterland has tremendous football talent. She wished the players well during the Qualifiers, and urged them to be positive in whatever they do.
The players subsequently visited the corporate office of the Guyana Telephone and Telegraph Company (GTT) where they were welcomed by Marketing Consultant, Samantha Gooden.
While there, they were given a tour of the facility by Public Relations Officer, Allison Parker, including a walk-through of the Call Centre. The team mingled with staff and had photo opportunities.
The ‘Lady Jags’ squad, consisting of nine Guyana-based and 16 overseas-based players, includes three Goalkeepers, eight Defenders, nine Midfielders and six Forwards.
The tournament will feature a double-header on match days at 17:00h and 19:30h.
