Kamali Davis and Llineiko Millett returned home last night after a week-long training camp with Chelsea FC Foundation coaches in Kingston, Jamaica.

The 2014 Digicel Kick Start Academy reached its climax on Saturday as Team Digicel, helped by Davis, won the final against the Jamaica Under-17 national team, who recently had a successful Caribbean Football Union Championships.

A highlight for the Bermudian duo was their success in making the “3v3” finals against Suriname after both teams had beaten the likes of Jamaica, Panama and Trinidad and Tobago. Suriname won the final 5-3.

Both Davis and Millett were the standout players selected by the Chelsea coaches during the Digicel Kick Start Clinic at Goose Gosling Field in August.

Alistair Beak, CEO of Digicel Bermuda, said: “We are delighted to have brought this fantastic opportunity to Bermuda’s young, aspiring footballers, who were also excellent ambassadors for the Island.

“The Digicel Kick Start Academy has proven successful in its ambition to develop youth football both here in Bermuda and in the region.”

Sabina Park, the historic venue, was the perfect arena for the best young footballing talent in the region to showcase their skills as they played a series of matches featuring players from across 13 Caribbean and Central American countries competing against the Jamaican youngsters.

David Monk and his team of coaches from the Chelsea FC Foundation were proud of the players. He said; “We want to thank the players and the coaches for their hard work. They have achieved a lot in a short space of time and they exemplify what we are trying to do with regional football development.

“All the players who participated in the Digicel Kick Start Academy are winners and we hope you will continue on your path to developing your skills and talents both on and off the pitch.”
