WA players named in Pararoos squad

Football West News

Three Western Australians have been named in a 14-player Pararoos squad that will compete at the IFCPF World Championships (cp2017.com.ar) to be held in San Luis, Argentina on September 6-24.

Christopher Barty, Nicholas Prescott and Raymond Ellery have been selected in the squad coached by Kai Lammert and WA assistant Goran Stajic.

The Pararoos, who are currently ranked 16th in the world, have been drawn in Group D along with the Ukraine(1st), USA (6th) and Northern Ireland (13th) (www.ifcpf.com/ranking).

Having had the benefit of a number of training camps recently, Lammert is quietly confident of his team’s prospects heading into the tournament.

“We have had four really good training camps, two in Sydney and two in Melbourne, in the lead up to the tournament,” said Lammert.

“I believe that we have a good competitive squad, with plenty of depth and options tactically.

“There is no denying that we have been drawn in a tough group, but our goal is to improve in every game we play and finish higher than 14th , which is what we did at the last World Championships in Spain (2013).

“We are all focused on taking our game to the next level and we’ll see what happens after the group stage,” concluded Lammert.

Their first match of the tournament will be against the USA on Monday 11 September, followed by the Ukraine on Wednesday 13 September and their final group match against Northern Ireland will be played on Friday 15 September (see attachment for full fixture details

The Pararoos will assemble for a Pre-Departure Training Camp at Valentine Sports Park from 2-6 September before heading to Argentina.
