The Guyana Football Federation (GFF) has shortlisted a provisional squad for their senior men’s International friendly against Grenada on October 7 in Grenada.
Former Alpha United coach Wayne Dover will be in charge of the 27-member squad.
“There is a large group of young players in the squad who earned their call-up from performances in the Corona Beer Cup and Mayor’s Cup. The other players who made up the squad are players who are part of the senior national pool,” Dover was quoted as saying in a press release.
According to the press release, training will be done three days per week and will focus on aerobic, aerobic endurance, anaerobic and strength. At the end of the sessions, the technical staff will select the best players as well as the best overseas-based players to shortlist a final 18-man squad for the upcoming game.

The other members of the management team are Rawle Adams (Team Manager), Charles Pollard (Assistant Coach), Linden France (Physical Trainer), Eon De Vieira (Goalkeeper Coach) and Denzil Hernandez (Physiotherapist).
