Seniors Given Green Light To Resume Training

Category: | 1 Reply

The Barbados Football Association’s (BFA) senior men and women football teams should be back in training before the end of next week.

President Randy Harris said he is happy with the green light after the teams halted training last December, following an escalation in COVID positive cases on island. 

“We are happy we can resume training for our national team and the Emmerson Boyce Women’s Development Program,” he reported. 

Harris said the BFA had been hoping to resume training in those two areas as the men are currently in preparation for qualification in the 2022 FIFA World Cup and the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup. 

The Turf at Wildey is currently covered in ash as a fall out from the eruption from the La Soufriere volcano in St Vincent and The Grenadines, but President Harris said there was a plan in place. 

“Because there is construction going on here, we have to be careful that we don’t interfere with the construction workers by spreading the dust. We have a plan where our maintenance crew will work after hours to try to get the dust off the field. We are looking forward to this and looking forward to having our team resume training. We should be ready before the end of next week to resume training,” he said.

I am happy the Government has seen its way to allowing the senior National team to resume training for their WCQ matches. I was at a loss to understand why this could not have been done sooner though, which would have been of great benefit to Russell Latapy and his charges. Here in Spain, despite over 3.4 million cases and 78,000 deaths from the Covid pandemic, football has continued since August, both training and matches and in fact in La Liga 2 we have just 8 matches out of 42 remaining left to complete the season. Once adequate precautions and common sense is used then it should be quite safe for all concerned. Of course, the St Vincent eruption just adds to the inconveniences affecting the National team. Barbados certainly deserves some good fortune after all these obstacles. Keep supporting!
