Two newcomers in Men’s U-20 squad


A 20-man squad, including two international-based newcomers, will represent Guyana at the Concacaf Under-20 Men’s Qualifiers in Nicaragua from February 15-23, 2020.

The two, Hudson Hazlewood from Washington University FC, USA, and Javier George from Stade Beaucairois FC, France, are both central midfielders but have different playing styles as well as roles and functions in the team.

“Hazlewood is a #10 type of midfielder who does more attacking,” said Head Coach Wayne Dover prior to the announcement of the squad, “while George is more of a #8 type of Midfielder who does more defending. They both added strength to the squad which made it more competitive in sessions and for selection to the first team.”

Commenting on the other members of the squad, Dover said many of the players have been part of the GFF’s Academy Training Centres and have international experience at the Under-15 and Under-17 levels.

“The work done with the players who are/were part of the ATCs was evident during the training sessions. This is a disciplined and special group, which gave of their best at every training session in the more than four weeks we’ve been together. This is a good reflection as to how far we have come. Once again, I’ll state my optimism of our chance of coming out the group on top by competing and giving our best effort.”

Guyana has been placed in Group A with St. Vincent and The Grenadines, Montserrat, US Virgin Islands and host Nicaragua.

The match schedule is as follows:

Match One: 15th February at 17:30h – Guyana vs Montserrat

Match Two: 17th February at 17:30h – St. Vincent and The Grenadines vs Guyana
