Crichlow Signs 2-Year Deal With Watford FC

IslandStats.com
Bermuda youth international Kane Crichlow has agreed to sign for Watford Football Club Under-23s on a two-year contract.

The 18-year-old forward arrives from AFC Wimbledon on July 1st, 2019 after a successful trial and will join up with Watford’s Development Squad ahead of the start of the 2019/20 season.

Speaking to watfordfc.com, Crichlow – a Bermuda Under-20 international who has also captained his country’s Under-17s and Under-15s – said: “I’m very excited. It’s always been a dream of mine since I was young to sign for a team that’s in the Premier League.

“I’m really excited that it’s finally come true and over the summer I’m going to be doing a lot of work in the gym and training with my national team to make sure I’m ready for pre-season.”

Academy Manager Richard Thomas added, “Kane has shown great attitude combined with top technical quality in his time with us so far, which suggests to us that he can go a long way.

“He’s a very talented player on the ball, he can play off both sides and use both feet very well and he can finish, so we’re expecting him to be very dangerous in the top third of the pitch.

“I’ve seen in the short time I’ve been here that we’ve got some really good players in the building already, so adding to that will freshen up the group and create some more competition, which can only bode well for the Under-23s and the rest of the Academy going forward.”

Scott & Harriers Under 23s Win Title

IslandStats.com
Knory Scott and his Harriers Under 23s sealed a superb first season in competitive league action with victory in the Total Motion Midland Football League Under 21’s Play-off final.

Harriers qualified for the final following the completion of their season in the Under 21’s West competition of the Midland Football League, which resulted in a first placed finish.

Harriers flew out of the blocks against Bedworth United and opened the scoring after just ten minutes from the penalty spot – Ethan Freemantle being fouled in the area before stepping up and sending the keeper the wrong way.

Ten minutes later, Harriers had the ball in the net again via an Andy Haynes cross which evaded everyone, and bouncing past the keeper – the linesman, however, had his flag up for offside.

Seconds later, Shane Lowth had a chance to finish following a quick free kick which set the striker free, but the keeper pulled out a fine-diving save to deny him.

The rest of the first half would see both sides struggle to create any further real chances, and this would continue into second half before Bedworth were reduced to ten men on 68 minutes following a tackle on Freemantle.

As the game began to become increasingly heated, Bedworth were reduced to nine following a collision with Darragh Lowth.

Harriers found the net through Shane Lowth after 81 minutes, finishing low from close range after being played through by Scott, but again, the linesman had his flag up.

Bedworth almost grabbed an equalizer on 86 minutes as a lofted free kick was headed up and over Kyle De Garis, and just inches over the bar, but Harriers would hold on to claim the silverware!

For this initial stage, the lowest-ranked 16 teams, based on the CONCACAF Women’s Under-17 Ranking as of July 2018, will be divided into four groups (A, B, C and D). After round-robin play, the top finisher in each group will advance to the knockout stage of the Final Championship.

The 16 teams participating in the qualifying round are (in alphabetical order): Anguilla, Antigua & Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Bonaire, Cayman Islands, Curacao, Dominica, Guyana, Honduras, Martinique, Saint Kitts & Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent & the Grenadines and US Virgin Islands.

The Final Championship will kick off with a group stage, in which the top-ranked 16 participating teams, based on the CONCACAF Women’s Under-17 Ranking as of July 2018, will be sorted into four groups (E, F, G and H). After round-robin play, the top three finishers in each of the groups will join the winners of Groups A, B, C and D (from the qualifiers) in the round of 16.

The 16 teams participating in the Group Stage of the Final Championship are (in alphabetical order):

Bermuda, Canada, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Grenada, Guatemala, Haiti, Jamaica, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Puerto Rico, Trinidad & Tobago and United States.

An official draw to sort the participating teams into the groups for the qualifying stage and group stage of the final competition will take place Thursday, May 9th, 2019, at the CONCACAF Headquarters in Miami. Fans will be able to follow all the action through Concacaf.com.
