Recent signing Tyrone Charles has been included, while Andre Toussaint has been omitted from Neal and Massy Caledonia AIA’s crucial second group stage clash with Guatemala’s CSD Comunicactiones, in the Concacaf Champions League group stage, which is scheduled to kick off tomorrow, at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Mucurapo, from 8 pm.
Along with Toussaint, Akim Armstrong and Monsterrat striker Julian Wade are out of the 19-man squad, which was announced yesterday.
However, among the selections made by head coach Jamaal Shabazz are Nuru Muhammad, Keyon Edwards, Kareem Joseph, Abdallah Phillips and captain Stephan David are also in the squad.
Shabazz, speaking ahead of the clash said he was not fazed by the absense of Toussaint, one of the more versatile players in the club.
“Andre has been out since our game in Mexico and while he resumed training a couple ago, we’ve got to reward the work put in by youngsters like Aaron Lester and Keron Betelmy.”
Caledonia has made alterations to the team since losing to Toluca FC in Mexico with Shabazz using Noel Williams alongside Jamal Gay in a two striker system. Williams scored in a 2-1 warm up win against W Connection. And, the duo had some good looks in a 1-1 warm up draw with last year's Pro league champs Defence Force.
“We like what Noel is bringing as a striker and I am expecting good things from him and Jamal Gay with Keyon Edwards coming from deeper,” stated Shabazz.
Caledonia AIA’s squad for tomorrow’s clash includes; Shemel Louison, Glenroy Samuel, Akeem Thomas, Nuru Muhammad, Noel Williams, Kareem Joseph, Aubrey David, Jamaal Smith, Stephan David, Keyon Edwards, Ryan Frederick, Nathan Lewis, Tyrone Charles, Marcus Ambrose, Abdalla Phillips, Jamal Gay, Densill Theobald, Aaron Lester and Keron Betelmy.
