National Women’s Under-20 head coach Nicola Williams said she is pleased with the way the Under-20 players have applied themselves over the past few weeks of training sessions at the Manny Ramjohn Stadium.

The coach has been overseeing daily training sessions with the players as they prepare for future Caribbean Football Union World qualifying tournaments.

“The girls have really done well. We have a situation where she under 20 players have been moved into the senior team already and that is a good sign,” Williams said.

“There is a lot of commitment now to the training sessions and that is commendable of the players. There is also good support from the FA towards the programme and there is an understanding of what is necessary for us to do to achieve success.

“They work hard when they are at training. The beginning of a programme is always the hardest because we have to build the physical profile of the players but they are adapting well so far,” Williams added.

The Under-17 Women’s team also commenced training this week under head coach Manuela Tesse following screening sessions the previous weekend. And Carolina Morace is overseeing the preparations of the Senior Women’s team which also trains daily at the Manny Ramjohn Stadium.
