The regional finals take place in Kingston, Jamaica on Saturday, June 27 and Sunday, June 28.

Mareyna Bar and Grill White Squall is managed by McNeil ‘Taste’ Morgan and is made up of players Reginald ‘Puff’ Payne, Shelly Williams, Dexter McCree, Jomo Brudy, Durwin ‘Ortega’ Ross, Roddie Thompson and Kyle Peters.

The team won the local leg of the competition, which was held last Saturday, June 20 at the National Tennis Centre in Villa and saw eight teams vying for the chance to represent St Vincent and the Grenadines in Jamaica.

White Squall, which lost their first game by default because they did not have a full team at the beginning of the competition, played their way into the semi-finals, where they defeated last year’s winner Crew FC during a penalty shootout.

They beat ECGC Ball Boys in the final encounter of the night and earned their spot, though controversially, in the regional finals.
