Montserrat: Vashirn Roache has been a part of the Montserrat Football Association Inc. development program from a young age. He has represented Montserrat on the regional and international stage at numerous tournaments.
Vashirn is very dedicated to the sport of football. During the COVID- 19 pandemic all football training was stopped. Vashirn took it upon himself to continue training; he even managed to convince other players to join him. With this initiative his fitness level was up and his technique was sharp.
His name was submitted to attend the 3rd annual CAF player identification combine in Antigua where he was offered a place at Harptury College Academy in the United Kingdom where he will pursue a two year BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Exercise and Sport Science.
Vashirn has always shown leadership qualities; he was appointed captain for the Under 15 squad that traveled to Miami even though the match ended in a loss Vashirn ensured that his teammate shook the hands of their opponent he represented good sportsmanship.
He is a very focused, hardworking and driven individual while dedicating his time to football he has not neglected his studies this is evident after he received 8 grade ones at the 2021 Examination Council (CXC).
The Department of Community, Youth & Sports Services and the Montserrat Football Association Inc. wishes Vashirn Roache all the best in his future endeavors.
