Lambe reinstated as captain
Reggie Lambe has been reinstated as Bermuda captain after being stripped of the honour for his side’s 12-0 win over Sint Maarten last month.
Lambe, who scored a hat-trick in that match, was replaced as captain by defender Danté Leverock, but will lead his country against El Salvador at the National Stadium tomorrow.
Mystery surrounds why the Cambridge United winger was temporarily relieved of his responsibilities by coach Kyle Lightbourne.
Lambe took over as captain from Nahki Wells and has led Bermuda during the Queens Park Rangers striker’s 3½-year absence from international football, often missing league matches for his club side to return for friendlies.
Lightbourne told The Royal Gazette yesterday that he planned to consult with his coaching staff before deciding who would lead Bermuda.
With Wells returning to the fold for the first time since March 2015, it is likely his name was in the mix.
“We want everyone to feel a part of what’s going on,” Lightbourne said. “We will feel it out and go from there.”
Speaking before the captaincy was announced yesterday, Leverock said he intended to be a leader on and off the pitch, regardless of the decision.
“It was a privilege to lead out my nation; something I’ll never forget,” Leverock said.
“Whoever captains the country, I know they will do what it takes to motivate the guys. We have leaders all over the pitch and that’s the most important thing.”
