Guyana National Indoor Team 2017

Following the just concluded GTT indoor hockey competition, the Guyana Hockey Board has named a strong 12-member men’s team to compete in the 2017 Indoor Pan American Cup to be held at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall from October 16-21.

The team is made up of a few experienced veterans, however the majority of the team is in their prime including striker and prolific scorer Aroydy Brandford who spearheaded Guyana’s efforts at the Pan American Junior Hockey Championships in Canada last year where the men’s team finished in seventh position.

Also included in the team are Aderemi Simon, Robert France and Jamarj Assanah while Devin Munroe could consider himself unlucky in not making the final 12 and has been named as the lone standby.

The Indoor Pan American Cup tournament will see a number of strong teams competing including powerhouses Argentina, Canada and Mexico, Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago (men) and Argentina, Canada, Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago, Uruguay and the USA in the women’s division.
Indoor hockey is where Guyana is most competitive, winning Bronze at the last PAHF Indoor Cup in 2014, in Montevideo Uruguay. Guyana hopes to make home court advantage count and vie for the title this time around. The winners of the men and women’s tournaments will qualify for the 2018 Indoor World Cup

Guyana Men’s team: – Jamarj Assanah, Aroydy Branford, Rayon Branford, Hilton Chester, Anthony Cole (Goalkeeper), Marvin Dannett, Jason DeSantos, Robert France, Kareem McKenzie, Medroy Scotland (Goalkeeper), Aderemi Simon, Andrew Stewart.
