Former student Calaum Jahraldo-Martin has spent the last 10 days in Jamaica, representing his country Antigua & Barbuda in the Caribbean Cup.

The Caribbean Cup is the championship tournament for all national sides that are members of the Caribbean Football Union. Having first been contested in 1989 in Barbados, the competition serves as a qualification tournament among CFU members for the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Jahraldo-Martin has had plenty of influence on Antigua so far and was the catalyst behind an eye-catching comeback against Haiti in the team’s opening game of the Caribbean Cup. After giving away a two goal lead in the first half, Jahraldo-Martin got things going in the 58th minute by working himself space on the left hand side of the Haitian box and slipping the ball to Myles Weston who found the net. Peter Byers then got his sides second of the game following a Weston cross, with the game finishing 2 – 2.

Next up for Antigua & Barbuda was the hosts Jamaica, but with Jahraldo-Martin not featuring, he was unable to help his team who slid to a 3 – 0 defeat against the Reggie Boys. He would though return to the starting line-up for the final group game against Martinique, but two goals in the second half would see the Benna Boys finish bottom of Group B with a single point.

With the tricky winger now set to return back to his club side Hull City, the young prospect will be keen to use this experience as a catalyst in pushing towards first team recognition.
