Guyana Football Federation (GFF) has shortlisted 60 talented young footballers for a national evaluation camp to select the final squad for the upcoming CONCACAF Girls’ U-15 Championship Qualifiers.

The camp, which began on July 2nd and runs until July 5th, features standout players from the recently concluded Guyana Football Federation-Blue Water Shipping Under-15 Girls’ National Secondary School Championship.

Forty-six participants hail from Georgetown, Berbice, Linden, West Demerara, and the hinterland, while an additional fourteen players join from the diaspora. Youth footballers from outlying regions will be integrated on July 10th.

This selection process emphasizes talent identification for Guyana’s junior national team program.

GFF Technical Director Bryan Joseph expressed his enthusiasm about the pool of players identified: “The Blue Water U-15 Girls’ tournament provided a fantastic platform for scouting. This group appears to be the most talented we’ve seen at this age group, and we are excited to prepare them for the upcoming CONCACAF championships.”

The final 18-member squad, along with five support staff, will be announced in due course.

Guyana’s qualifying campaign takes place from August 5th to 11th, with matches against Anguilla (August 5th), St. Vincent and the Grenadines (August 6th), and the British Virgin Islands (August 8th).

Depending on results, there’s a possibility for a fourth and even a fifth match.

The arrival of players from the hinterland promises an exciting display of talent: “We will see the true depth of this pool when they join up in a couple of days,” noted Joseph.

“It will be interesting to see how they perform when the cream meets the cream. It all bodes well for our National Team.”

President of the Women’s Football Association (WFA), Andrea Johnson, echoed Joseph’s optimism: “We are confident in the talent selected from the Blue Water Shipping girls’ league. Over the next two weeks, we will assess these top players based on their game knowledge, fitness, and technical skills. I am confident that we will assemble a team that will proudly represent Guyana at the regional competition.”

The Guyanese team is scheduled to arrive in Aruba on August 2nd.
