The list was submitted on Saturday 14 by the GFF’s Technical Committee.

compile the list which contains 50 local players from across the country.

Heading the list with 10 representatives are current GFA/Banks Beer champions Slingerz FC followed by Alpha United with eight members. Buxton United leads the East Coast contingent with four players while Rosignol United also has four players represented.

In the breakdown by association, Georgetown leads the list with 18 players followed by West Demerara with 13 players. The ancient county is represented by seven players while Linden and the East Coast have five players apiece on the roster. Overlooked in the initial list is the East Bank region.

Speaking via telephone, Matthias, during a brief comment, stated that the initial list will be increased going forward as they attempt to create a local pool of players for national honours. He said that the Technical Committee will shortly disclose the criteria that was used to create this initial list.

“The national criteria and policy for selection will be made public shortly so that everyone will know what they need to work towards in order to make the respective national teams,” said Matthias.

He further stated “It’s not about travelling, it’s about competing and becoming a formidable competitor in the football world. If the player(s) don’t perform, he/she will be replaced, if the coaches don’t perform, they too will also be replaced.”

Questioned if foreign players once eligible will be considered for selection, Matthias said “Of course, once they fulfill the technical and tactical criteria for selection.”
