Chel­tenham 1 Caribbean 0

The Football League Paper - - FINALTHIRD -

IFYOU had the chance to go to the Caribbean to play World Cup qual­i­fiers or face a League Two rel­e­ga­tion battle, the for­mer would be pretty tempt­ing.

But not for Craig Braham-Bar­rett. The 26-year-old has turned down the chance to play for Montser­rat in their matches against Cu­ra­cao at the end of the month.

In­stead, the left-back, who qual­i­fies through his late grand­mother, wants to help Chel­tenham jump clear of the League Two trap­door in the fi­nal fur­longs of the sea­son. He said: “I’d love to go to the Caribbean and play in­ter­na­tional foot­ball, but the sit­u­a­tion we are in means it is not an ideal sit­u­a­tion.

“It would be self­ish to go and the coach (Lenny Hewlett) told me the door will still be open for me in the fu­ture.”
