Cedella and Karen head to the Dominican Republic to support the Reggae Girlz

06.16.2014

Cedella and Karen Marley arrived with the Jamaica senior women’s football team in the Dominican Republic today ahead of the start of matches in Group Five of the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) qualifiers.

The Reggae Girlz had a two-week preparation camp in Miami, Florida before departing for Santo Domingo and team physician Dr. Ephraim Ingram believes players are in tip-top shape.

The Reggae Girlz face St. Lucia on June 20 before clashing with the hosts Dominican Republic two days later. Anguilla are no longer in the group after pulling out of the competition a few days ago. Only the top team in the group is assured of a place in the CFU Women’s Cup Finals to be held in Trinidad & Tobago in August.

Elaine Walker-Brown, the Jamaica team manager, said the reduction of Group Five to a three-team affair leaves less room for error. “We have to be focused. We cannot lose any game because six points is the maximum and only one team comes out of the group. We can’t lapse and we have to just go out and win these two games,” she explained.

The Jamaicans had positive results in their two practice games in the United States, recording 4-0 and 8-1 victories.

Walker-Brown spoke glowingly of the training camp and added that it has laid the foundation for success at this tournament. “The girls are very confident and I must say the camp was very successful. There was camaraderie, there was the family-like setting and the preparation. They have never gained this attention before and I think they see a bright future ahead and I think they are going to make their mark at this tournament.”

UPDATE (6/18): The Reggae Girlz held their first practice session at the Estadio Panamericano yesterday, and head coach Merron Gordon was pleased with what he saw in a lively though short, 60-minute workout.

“It was a positive look and we really wanted to get the girls sharp before the first game. We worked on pressing [when not in possession] and transition out of pressing and the girls reacted well,” he told the Jamaica Observer. “The girls are ready, but I think they are a bit anxious. They want to go out and play and we have to wait until June 20 to start, so we (the coaches) are just keeping them focused,” Gordon added.

Haiti, Antigua & Barbuda, Bermuda and Martinique have already progressed from their respective groups.

Ultimately, teams are seeking qualification to the 2015 Senior Women’s World Cup set for Canada. To help the Reggae Girlz get the funding they need in order to be able to compete in the tournament, please donate to their GoFundMe campaign @ bit.ly/reggaegirlz.
