SENIOR SCHOOL BOYS ALL-STARS – 6:00 pm
The east team will be heavily reliant on BAA’s First Division squad with 8 of the 17 players selected spending their weekends representing the club. CedarBridge Academy’s Chioke White, Saltus’ Cole Summers, Cole Packwood, Ayden Morris, and Tre Burgess along with the home school trio of Riley Robinson, Jaidyn Robinson, and Chazz Knight all play for the Woodlands Road club. Jaidyn is part of the under-17 national team currently preparing for the CONCACAF Championships next month while brother Riley has already earned a senior cap during the current Nations League Campaign.
Somersfield Academy’s forward is currently one of the top scorers in the under-17 league and has made a few Premier League appearances for Somerset Trojans. Front Street Mile winner Tajahri Rogers from CedarBridge Academy will also trade in his sneakers for his playing boots and expects to be part of the busy east midfield. CedarBridge and North Village’s O’Mari DeShields will share the goalkeeping duties with Knight. Kairo Lewis from Saltus and PHC and Cameron Simons from Somersfield and Vasco will be expected to shore the defense for the east squad. CedarBridge have a stable of Somerset players who will lead the east attack with Kee-Zai Cann, Keanu Coddrington, and Kameron McNeil joining Saltus and Vasco forward Dante Hayward in the attack.
The West squad features a large Berkeley Institute contingent with PHC’s Shavon Nisbett hoping to continue his scoring ways. Nisbett scored the last-minute winner in the six-a-side tournament final and has found the back of the net on a few occasions in the Premier League with PHC. The squad also boasts two players preparing with the Under 17 national team with center-back Luke Fulton from Warwick Academy and Berkeley’s Daion DeSilva-Swan expected to feature heavily for the west team. Warwick Academy’s Kwame Naylor has been a regular midfielder for Robin Hood’s Premier outfit over the last two seasons.
Fulton will be surrounded by a wealth of defenders with North Village’s Anijahe Martin from MSA and Kristian Cherrington from Berkeley both seeing top-flight action this season. MSA’s Olek Rymon Lipinski from Warwick Archers, and Berkeley pair Jaylon Ible and Isaiah Francis will also feature in the west defense. Saqui Robinson from MSA will share the custodian duties with Berkeley’s Jonah Trott. Nisbett will get help in the forward department from Warwick Academy and Vasco forward Moses Johnson and the Berkeley duo of Zano Tucker from North Village and Miguel Falcao from BAA. Naylor’s and DeSilva-Swan’s midfield will also feature Warwick’s Jesse Craft, Berkeley’s Tavez Smith, and Bermuda Institute’s Sebastian Davis.
