World Cup qual­i­fiers call-up for Heath star

Striker gets in­ter­na­tional chance with Caribbean coun­try

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT - By Tim Street tim.street@trin­i­tymir­ror.com

Gavin James could be­come an in­ter­na­tional star for St Vin­cent & The Gre­nadines progress via the in­ter­net.

He said: “Gavin is buzzing. This is a re­ally good thing for him and for us as a small club like ours, and we will be keep­ing an eye on how he gets on.

“He qual­i­fies through his par­ents and St Vin­cent would have been fool­ish not to have taken a look – he is a re­ally con­fi­dent player and has al­ways scored goals.”

James has been given time off from his job as a PE tech­ni­cian at Che­sham High School to take part in his World Cup adventure, and Mal­colm is con­fi­dent that on his re­turn the front man will stick around for the Hea­thens’ as­sault on the South­ern League next sea­son.

He added: “I don’t like to think about things like if an in­ter­na­tional call-up will at­tract in­ter­est in Gavin, we’re just see­ing it as a pos­i­tive for him and for us.

“If a big­ger club does come in as a re­sult? If it hap­pens it hap­pens. All the play­ers have now been spo­ken to and we’re hop­ing to keep the ma­jor­ity of last sea­son’s squad to­gether – the core is the key.

“It will mean fur­ther dis­tances, so they will have to look at their com­mit­ment, and a bet­ter stan­dard of foot­ball, so we will have to strengthen – but it’s about how they re­act to that.”
