Boro Striker Selected For International Recognition

5 years ago By Lee Peskett

The club are delighted to advise supporters that Boro frontman James Walker has been selected to represent Antigua & Barbuda to play Guatemala.

Although this selection requires James to be unavailable for Boro whilst with the national squad it is still exciting that a Priory Lane player is receiving international recognition and experience. 

On receiving the news Boro manager Tommy Widdrington said " I'm absolutely delighted for the lad and feel any international recognition is a real plus for the club and the individual concerned. James will be in a squad that also features Mikele Leigertwood and Dexter Blackstock so he will obviously be in excellent company. "

The squad will face Guatemala in Guatemala City and in the return leg at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, Antigua, in International World Cup Qualification games during early September.

Initially reluctant to miss Boro fixtures James requested and obtained agreement for a later flight that will allow him to be available for Boro's fixture .v. Welling United. Widdrington continued "I think it's right that he goes despite his initial reluctance. Your country comes knocking you should answer without a doubt. The squad now has a strength in depth and his absence will allow another their chance in the starting XI here at The Lane."

All at Priory Lane wish him every success for these fixtures.
